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.

Samsung Camera has announced the NV3, one of three new camera models in their
new NV series of digital still cameras. The NV3 is a 7-megapixel digital still
camera that features Samsung's exclusive Digimax Converter software to play
movies and MP3 files. Samsung's new NV Series of digital still cameras all
have bodies in brushed black, stainless steel and a trademark Samsung blue ring
located around the lens.



At the heart of the NV3 is a 7-megapixel digital still camera measuring 3.7"
x 2.2" x 0.7" with a 2.5-inch, high resolution LCD display. The NV3
integrates a 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 38-114 mm in 35 mm format) capability
with Samsung's exclusive SHD lens technology. The NV3 is equipped with Samsung's
state-of-the-art Advanced Shake Reduction (ASR) technology to combat hand shake.
The ASR function provides enhanced image clarity by electronically compensating
for excess hand shake and improving color in environments lacking sufficient lighting
where the use of the flash is not desirable. The unique technology uses proprietary
algorithms to interpret sharpness and color information to deliver an image that
looks like it has been taken with the flash. As the flash is disabled, side effects,
such as red eye, are prevented.



For entertainment on-the-go, users simply use the included Digimax Converter software
to easily convert their favorite MP3 files or watch their favorite video content
on the large, 2.5-inch color display. The user-friendly software can convert MPEG,
AVI, MOV, WMV and ASF files for viewing on the NV3. For music on-the-go, the software
can also convert MP3 and WAV audio files in several simple steps. The innovative
software also allows users to view subtitles, adjust the screen size and crop
and stretch the image to fit the screen as desired. Users can listen to their
entertainment using the included ear buds or on the dual stereo speakers discreetly
located on the camera, and even listen to their music while taking photos.



In addition to playing video, the NV3 can also make movies using MPEG-4, the high-compression,
high-quality video format. The NV3 can record in VGA (640x480) at 30fps, for smoother
video and a bigger view of the movie on LCD and TV screens. For steady videos,
the NV3 includes a movie stabilizer function that automatically detects and corrects
minor lateral and vertical camera movement. For additional control the continuous
video recording function allows the user to pause and resume video recording at
any time, while the built-in movie editing function allows users to edit video
in-camera. The NV3 features several special effects functions for creative control
in-camera, such as Color Effect, Highlight, Photo Frame, Negative and Composite
Shot. Color effects include B/W, sepia, blue, green and red.



The NV3 features 11 scene modes including Night, Portrait, Children, Landscape,
Close-up, Sunset, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach & Snow and Text Recognition.
Text Recognition, a feature unique to Samsung digital still cameras, allows users
to shoot documents such as books, papers and magazines and then extract text from
the image taken using the bundled "Digimax Reader" text recognition
software.



The NV3 features 16 MB of internal memory and comes bundled with ear buds and
a powerful lithium ion battery.



The Samsung NV3 has an MSRP of $349.99 and will be available in Fall of 2006.
