More details in the announcement after the break.
Too bad this geek has to miss the Consumer Electronics Show this year due to national service commitments. This looks really interesting. My head is just beginning to get around how it’d change the way we use our PC. Wonder if I can play Starcraft 2 better with it? Alas, we’d have to wait till July to find out!

LAS VEGAS - Jan. 5, 2011 -
A phone with pretty solid hardware including a 12-megapixel camera and HDMI output (though nobody’s really excited about the Symbian OS) is now available for pre-order in Singapore.
Rumours has it that this is the last N-series phone running the Symbian OS and Nokia will be shipping MeeGo from N9 onwards. Check out the press release for details after the break.
This looks like a nifty gadget that might make a lot of sense for certain lifestyles. Earlier on, this geek was playing with the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro and it packed a lot of features in a little device providing a pretty nice experience on Andriod. Looks like Sony Ericsson is going for smaller devices with more modular extensions like the LiveView. I haven’t played with one myself but you can find out more from the press release below.

Looks like my favourite camera, the Canon PowerShot G11, just got better! I’m in cyberlust!
London, UK, 14th September 2010 – Canon today announces the new PowerShot G12 – the latest model in the multi award-winning PowerShot G-series trusted by professional photographers the world over. The new model offers photographers best-in-class flexibility and all-round powerful performance, with professional levels of control and support for a wide range of accessories.
For a geek who has not touched a Sony Ericsson phone in a long long while, I tried the Xperia X10 Mini with QWERTY and found the Andriod implementation pretty decent and the keyboard extremely good for such a small form factor. Has changed my mind about Sony Ericsson phones for sure. Have not tried the Vivaz but here’s an update for those of you who own one here in Asia Pacific.
- New customisable user interface available in the Asia Pacific region from September 2010
- Exclusively optimised, with 3D carousel on the Vivaz™ and Vivaz pro™
- Touch-friendly menus, multiple desktop screens and widgets offer high level of user personalisation
