Samsung focuses on 3D LED TVs and Apps for TVs

Samsung details future strategy at CES 2010

At its press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show this week, Samsung revealed dozens of products, including new TVs, home theater systems, and eBook readers as well as content partnerships with Dreamworks, Google, and others.

Of particular note to gamers, and any of us with an appreciation for high performance TVs and gadgets, was the company's new LED 9000 TV, a screen said to be "as thin as a pencil" that features a 3D processor, a 240MHz refresh rate and a remote control with its own live TV display.

The company also announced a new App store for its connected TVs, Blu-Ray players and other devices that will bring iPhone-style applications and games direct to TV screens. Content providers already include AccuWeather, Blockbuster, Netflix, Pandora, and Vudu, but many more are set to be announced soon. Tim Baxter, president of Samsung Electronics America, said Samsung Apps would be an open platform. "If you thought it was fun developing an app for a three-inch phone screen?," said Baxter before going on to talk about how much more fun it would be to create an app for a 55-inch display.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
