|Other stuff from The Digital Experience: there was a very nice lady over at Cornice who actually recognized our website (and actually knew what she was talking about). So we'll just mention her company's new 8 & 10GB micro-HDD drives, for which they still need DAP manufacturers, really. Sirius was there, with their dock-based S50 satellite radio as was Archos (nothing new to spot there, except for some vague plans on implementation of Wi-Fi and such in new yet unnamed products) - the Gmini-500 won't make it to the US, supposedly.|
iRiver told us that the G10 won't come available anywhere except for South Korea. We'll have to cross-examine some reps on that tomorrow. Mustek, the company that brought you one of the crappiest PVRs ever (PVR1x0) had a new brick to pimp - a 7-inch screen, 40GB PVR that comes witrh an SD slot and an affordable price tag (399 USD, available May 2006).
Other than that, nothing too interesting to mention. Lots of not-so-interesting docking station/speaker set thingies (Saitek was there, for example), standard-issue DAPs like the ones made by Sandisk and Alienware. Some nice cube-like "Porsche"-designed FM/XM/DAB radios by Eton and Sonos'new unit pretty much wrapped it up. The "real stuff" will just have to roll in tomorrow, I guess.
