500x_squeezeboxradio

More Squeezebox goodness from Logitech today, with the Radio and Touch. Both stream audio over Wi-Fi as usual, but the Radio (pictured) packs stereo speakers and the Touch just streams to your existing hi-fi. They’ll come in at US$200 and US$300, respectively.

Sony gets stylish streaming hi-fi

Sony’s released two sexy new iPod docks, and they do a lot more than provide comfortable seating for your portable media. The NAS-Z200iR (terrible name) fits an iPod or iPhone, with USB and audio input for other players, but will also access your PCs music library and stream files direct. It comes with a suspiciously iPod-like controller. The CMT-Z100iR (another terrible name) is a bit less smart, packing the same features, without the Wi-Fi streaming. Both will be available mid-September.

Asus SeaShell is chic and cheerful

Netbooks have built their reputation on being cheap and cheerful, leaving the sleeker and more slimline to battle it out at higher price points. But Asus is looking to change all that with the SeaShell. It measures just 2.5cm at its thickest point, but still squeezes a 10.1in screen and almost full-sized keyboard beneath its svelte shell. Underneath the glossy finish lies the true guts of a netbook, packing an Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

HP Photosmart Premium printer is not boring

Printers are hardly the most exciting of products, but this is no ordinary printer. Beneath its bland white exterior lies some pretty slick technology, stuff more akin to desktops than desktop printers. It’s got Wi-Fi, USB, built-in memory card reader, ethernet, and LCD display and DLNA certification. All that and it also manages high-resolution photo quality printing at high speeds. It’s just a shame it looks so plain, might we suggest a nice glossy black finish next time?

With more in the pipeline, the I7500 is Samsung’s first handset to run Google’s Android operating system. Only 11.9mm thick (a tad thinner than the HTC Magic) its got a gorgeous 3.2in AMOLED screen and 5MP camera with LED flash. It packs 8GB of internal storage, with microSD support up to 32GB (that’s 40GB!), and works with HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS. It will be available in major European countries from June this year, and expect to shell out around US$400 for one.

LG Viewty is back with a vengeance

lg_viewty_00431

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.

Twitter is a baker’s best friend

Adding to the growing list of things Twitter can do better than you can, BakerTweet will tell you when your favourite blueberry muffins are fresh out the oven. The most basic of computer hardware is synced up via Wi-Fi, so your baker just needs to turn a knob sending tweets to the carb hungry masses. It’s currently being trialled in London’s Albion Cafe, with tweets like this one: ‘Bouncy, beautiful cup cakes, nice and iced, plump, and ready for your delight. come and get ’em.’ We don’t see how it can fail.
