One of the best things about being involved in this industry is the continuous stream of new goodies I get to look at. The IFA gadget show was held recently in Berlin with the usual range of new devices on display. A Cliff's Notes-type synopsis follows.
From Acer comes a 6-inch screen on a mobile phone that records at 4K and a 27-inch all-in-one PC based on Android. Alcatel also has a 6-inch device, but this one has an LCD screen that comes with an eInk cover _ yes that's two screens _ to save on power. Asus has a 7-inch phonepad with dual speakers. Lenovo has new ThinkPads and a 7-inch budget tablet. LG has a new 8.3-inch tablet and a massive 77-inch OLED-based TV. Samsung has the expected Note 3 and Gear watch along with its own 55-inch OLED screen.
Sony has a smartphone with a 20.7MP camera. It also has a curved LED TV, a Win 8-based tablet and a new smartwatch of its own. HDMI 2 was announced, and most other television manufacturers announced their own 4K or ultra-high-def version. Logitech has a new long-life gaming mouse, keyboards and tablet covers.
