Lenovo has introduced the ThinkPad W700, a 17-inch widescreen mobile workstation
engineered with technologies and innovations to exceed the demands of the most
data and graphics-intensive users. Lenovo brings the industry's first built-in
digitizer and color calibrator to a mobile workstation and combines these innovations
with first-in-market technologies such as new NVIDIA Quadro FX mobile graphics
and supporting the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor. Other features such
as optional dual hard drives with RAID configurations, up to 8 GB of high speed
DDR3 memory, a range of wireless connectivity options and excellent multimedia
capabilities including an optional Blu-ray DVD burner/player are said to make
the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation the standard-bearer for power and performance
in a mobile workstation.



The
ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation has an optional built-in palm rest digitizer
and color calibrator. Lenovo and Intel collaborated to integrate the color calibrator
and digitizer into the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation. Designed for digital
content creators and users, the mobile workstation's digitizer helps them
easily configure an image, either mapping it to the entire screen or to an area
defined by the user. High performance users, especially digital photographers,
will benefit from models with the built-in color calibrator. The calibrator automatically
adjusts the display's color in up to half the time of many external calibrators
and with higher accuracy, resulting in the most accurate, true-to-life images
in an integrated package. Together with the upcoming Intel mobile quad core processor,
multimedia designers and animators now have outstanding quad-core processor performance
and true color replication that is critical for realistic digital creations and
workflow efficiencies.



Supporting the latest Intel processor technologies including the upcoming mobile
quad core processor, the mobile workstation can be configured with up to 8 GB
of memory with an additional 2 GB of Intel Turbo Memory. Lenovo also offers models
with Intel vPro technology for complete manageability. The mobile workstation
can be equipped with dual internal hard drives, including solid state drive storage.
The ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation offers both the NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M and
3700M Open GL graphics processors with up to 1 GB of dedicated video memory for
exceptional graphics performance in a 17-inch mobile workstation. The hard drives
can be configured for RAID 0 to help users access and save their data faster than
traditional disk-writing methods, or users can choose RAID 1 for mirrored data
redundancy.



The mobile workstation includes WiFi wireless connectivity. Additionally, users
can connect to other devices wirelessly using mobile workstation models featuring
Bluetooth and ultra wideband technology. Models supporting WiMAX will be available
later this year.

Eastman Kodak Company has announced that its innovative EASYSHARE-ONE zoom
digital camera would be available for purchase this October. The company has
also developed a new, interactive tour of the EASYSHARE-ONE camera, available
at http://www.kodak.com/go/easyshare-one/.
In addition to providing 360-degree views of the camera, the MACROMEDIA FLASH
micro-site highlights the multiple ways in which people can easily share, take,
edit, organize, and print their pictures, all wirelessly.



Kodak
is working with the world's leading wireless companies to make sharing
pictures across town, across the country, or across the globe as easy and convenient
as possible. All EASYSHARE-ONE camera purchasers receive a complementary, camera-specific
trial service in conjunction with major hotspot providers. In addition to service
from T-Mobile USA, with more than 6,000 T-Mobile HotSpots across the United
States, EASYSHARE-ONE camera owners will also be able to enjoy public connections
in other key areas. Kodak plans to announce further market-specific service
providers, as well as retailers that will sell the EASYSHARE-ONE camera, in
the coming weeks.



Kodak designed the EASYSHARE-ONE model (US$599 MSRP) including the KODAK WI-FI
Card specifically for sharing, moving the camera experience from "point-and-shoot"
to "point-and-share." · It allows users to have E-mail and
online picture sharing without a computer, using a direct, wireless connection
to the KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery service. By connecting to the Gallery through
a compatible home or public network, people can upload pictures and videos for
near instantaneous electronic sharing with friends around the world.



More information on KODAK EASYSHARE products is available at www.kodak.com/go/EasyShare.

The Fujifilm Finepix 200 EXR (list: $599; street, under $500) sports a 12 megapixel sensor and a 14.3X optical zoom lens that is equivalent to 30.5-436mm (!) It takes stills and high-quality video and has a built in mic that delivers quality sound without much if any whirring from the camera. Having that much zoom capability means that you never will want on the tele side with this integral lens camera, and even 30mm is not bad on the wide side.

Looking like a small D-SLR with a moderate zoom lens, the S200EXR actually sports a 30.5-436mm optical zoom, an incredible range in a lens this small, though smaller sensor size is part of the reason they could attain the smaller size.
