Remote control for virtualized desktops

Samsung hasn't chosen to include one of its top-flight cameras on the Wave but the 5MP model is really very good indeed. There are plenty of features to keep the tweakers happy, including smile detection, multi-shot (up to nine pics if you keep the shutter pressed down), and panorama (it stitches together four shots automatically and you can set the direction in which you turn).

Picture quality is impressive, with generally accurate colour processing and nice sharp edges with a minimum of blur. They look terrific on the super sharp screen too. Also impressive is the HD video, which handles movement better than we're used to with similarly specced cameras. Maximum resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels and there's the option to shoot in (lower res) slow motion too.
