The official model name might not be the easiest to remember but it’s alias is the Philips Cinema 21:9 Platinum TV will be getting a release sometime this month after it was officially unveiled in September at IFA.   The speccage of this TV is immense but as a result so is the pricetag : 58” LCD screen Ambilight Spectra 3 technology Bright Pro, 400HZ 21:9 cinema proportion Perfect Pixel HD processing Philips Net TV with fully interactive Web Browser Now here’s the price. A whopping £3999, yes just shy of four thousand pounds!!

Acer S1 : World’s thinnest LCD

Usually it’s “the bigger the better” but with Acer’s new S1 series of LCD TV screens it certainly looks like “less is more”. Announced this week, the super thin and small screens not only keep the high quality goods in a smaller space but also are “wallet friendly”. So if you’re interested in a smaller TV for your house or a decent quality, decent sized, space saving monitor, read on.   Housed in a nice glossy black outer shell the Acer S1 series truly indicate that size doesn’t matter. Opting to keep the screens small (18.5” to 23”) these little beauties only measure 15mm thick and a staggering 13mm in depth. Now I know you’re thinking squashing it so thin will mean it’ll lose out elsewhere. WRONG! They offer Full 1080p HD and a whopping 12million : 1 contrast ratio which alters frame by frame to deliver super sharp images. Couple that with a response time of 5ms and you’re looking at a belter. Now there is a downside in that the smaller screens only have VGA and DVI ports where as the larger 21 and 23 get HDMI too. Not only that with EcoDisplay low power consumption, you can sleep easy knowing your helping the environment too.   Prices start at an ultra-low £119.99...

Acer Aspire One 533 : HD netbook

The thing with netbooks in my opinion is they’re all well and good to carry about and do the odd bit of word processing or web surfingin a coffee shop, but they cant really do much else. Acer has obviously noted this and has updated its range to allow HD video capabilities but also given them extra connectivity but still giving decent battery life.   The Aspire One 533 has a 10.1” 1280 x 720 screen. Alright it’s not Full HD but 720p is still pretty good. Powered by either the Intel Atom N455 nor N475 you can opt for 1GB or 2GB of memory. It also has up to 250GB of storage. The standard WiFi comes too but you can also have the option to include 3G connectivity and the latest Bluetooth 3.0. Battery wise, there’s 3 options for you to pick from. The highest being a six-cell affair which will give up to 10 hours of use, but also will add weight.   Available in July there’s no price but with so many options to choose from they’re going to vary...

Sony PM1 HD Snap Camera

With the Flip HD and Creative Vado doing well in the small video camera stakes, Sony is trying to get in there with this little beauty.   Sony PM1 Mobile HD Snap Camera certainly should put itself in there with its sharp looks, 27 degree swivel lens, 5MP sensor with 4x digital sensor to boot. It has five different scene selections for you to use including auto, sports, landscape, low light and back light.It sports a slightly small 1.8” screen but due to the fact the camera is so small, it doesn’t make the camera bad at all.   Everything can then be loaded straight onto your PC or Mac or can be directly uploaded to Youtube, Picasa and Dailymotion. Unfortunately, no news on a price...
