No doubt looking to capitalize on the success of its gorgeous Series 9 notebook, Samsung has unveiled two Series 7 CHRONOS premium notebooks at IFA 2011.

Both models will come with an Intel Core i7 processor, a spacious 750GB HDD and 8GB of DDR3 system memory. There's also some extra flash memory on the motherboard that's said to result in faster startup times and enhanced performance.  Read More

Gizmag's Kate Seamer tries Sony's HMZ-T1 personal 3D viewer

Sony has been quick to commercialize the prototype 'Personal 3D Viewer' HMD (Head Mounted Display) we first saw at CES earlier this year, announcing a much-changed version at IFA in Berlin a few hours ago which will be known as the HMZ-T1. Like most Sony product, the new HMZ-T1 will attract premium pricing, landing in stores in time for Christmas with a price tag in the vicinity of US$780. That's still a lot cheaper than a Bravia though, and the twin hi-def (1280 x 720) 0.7-inch OLED screens simulate a real 750-inch movie theater screen at a viewing distance of 20 meters. The advantage of the OLED technology is that it has very fast (0.01 millisecond) response times, rendering smooth life-like video of the fast-moving imagery encountered in gaming and watching sport. Two of Gizmag's team tried the new HMDs ...  Read More

LG's LSM-100 mouse doubles as a scanner when holding down the Smart Scan button

The miniaturization of electronics has meant that the inner workings of a mouse can be crammed inside a package that is much smaller than is ergonomically recommended for such a device. This has freed up mouse manufacturers to put some of that wasted space to good use by extending the capabilities of the ubiquitous pointing peripheral. We recently looked at the Canon Mark I that combines a mouse, keyboard and calculator and now LG is getting in on the multi-capable mouse action with what strikes us as a very good idea - a mouse that doubles as a handheld scanner.  Read More
