Inside Philips' CeBIT cornucopia
More top goodies for the gadget-hungry
Philips has used CeBIT to launch its new KeyRing 019 USB stick camcorder, which it claims is the world's most compact, wearable product for capturing digital video and photographs. Oh yes, and carrying music and data. The KeyRing 019 (seen in photo on left) is capable of up to 25 minutes of continuous video recording, or can snap up to 200 still photos with 2 megapixel image quality.
Other Philips' innovations at the show include a new 2GB audio jukebox - no bigger than a credit card - that boasts built-in FM radio, and room for 500 tracks in MP3 format.
Moving breathlessly on, what about the company's 755 mobile phone? The all-singing, all-dancing mobe (on right in photo) can send photos, drawings and even handwritten notes. You can snap away to your heart's content with the integrated VGA camera, then creatively edit them on the phone itself, 'tag' said images by writing or drawing directly on the phone's touch screen with the stylus pen, and sent in just a few seconds. Phew.
Philips' CeBIT cornucopia will also contain the latest additions to its Streamium family of products that enable the wireless transmission of digital media content throughout PC, hifi and video environments. Philips will begin adding Streamium functionality to its TV range this year, with the introduction of an LCD Flat TV with WiFi enabled broadband connection. ®
