Having drooled over Seagate’s answer to digital downloads in February, we’re excited to see it finally launching in the region. This simple box lets you transfer downloadable HD content to your living room telly. Just download files to your PC, transfer them to your FreeAgent portable hard drive, stick the drive into the Theater’s slot and attach it to the TV. It supports all major codecs, 5.1 surround sound and resolutions up to 1080i. It’s available now for around US$190.

The original Viewty was great. A solid touchscreen phone with a fantastic camera, and haptics that manufacturers still have trouble matching. So when we got wind of the latest Viewty Smart, we danced a little mobile-inspired jig. Rocking the same LG 3D user interface seen on the Arena, its got a gorgeous 8MP camera, complete with LED flash and ISO up to 1600, and a slick 3in WVGA touchscreen. It also comes packing Wi-Fi, GPS, DivX support, and is compatible with 32GB MicroSD. Watch out for a full review as soon as we find one.
