11 Jan 2011


As CES 2011 rolls on, so do the array of gadgets on show. From high-end boomboxes to clever fitness accessories to dinky cameras. It's all at CES 2011. Read on for a handful of some of those that have caught our eye.

BlackBerry PlayBook cases spotted
The BlackBerry PlayBook isn't in stores yet, but already we've spotted some official cases for it in a range of colours for the 7-inch BlackBerry tablet. Makers, RIM obviously hope the PlayBook will be big, so do keep an eye out for its arrival.

Sony Ericsson Arc first look
It's not available anywhere, but we've already had a play with the rather sexy Sony Ericsson Arc. And the news is largely good, especially its display, which is sharp and extremely fluid. If you like recording video and taking photos on your phone you'll be pleased to know it features high definition video recording and an 8-megapixel camera.

Panasonic's new Viera tablets continue to tease
Panasonic knows how to tease, it seems. The company has announced a trio of new tablets but have said little else. One thing is clear: they look great and can work like virtual remotes to make them some of the best entertainment tools around. With more tablets on the way, 2011 looks set to be the year of the tablet.

TDK Boombox goes up to 11
The TDK Life on Record is a boombox for the new generation complete with manbag style straps and volume control that doesn't stop at 10. Nope, it goes all the way up to 11, music fans. We want one, and we want it now. Here's hoping it sounds as good as it looked.

The Nike+Sportwatch is by far the best looking fitness accessory we've ever seen. It uses the GPS skills of TomTom to track your runs and motivate you to get fitter.
