Epson EB-435W

Epson’s EB-435W is part of a range of short-throw projectors the company is for the education market.

Powered by 3LCD technology, the EB-435 can be mounted 72cm from the screen to deliver a 178cm image. A white and colour light output of up to 3,000 lumens creates a clear picture, even in daylight, while a contrast ratio of 3000:1 and native reolution of 1280×800 in a 16:10 aspect ratio delivers sharp detail.




It also comes with a 3-in-1 USB display, so one cable is all that’s needed for visuals, audio and mouse control, and an E-TORL lamp produces with a life of 6,000 hours in eco mode.

Price: €984

Canon EOS-1D X

Where before Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II ruled as the darling of camera geeks, it look like the EOS-1D X is about to take up that mantle with an impressive array of features and add-ons like Wi-Fi and GPS dongles.

Aimed (pun intended) at professionals, the EOS-1D X uses an 18.1MP full frame CMOS sensor, native ISO up to 51,200, 61-point autofocus, dual DIGIC 5+ processors, 1080p video capture, Clear View II 3.2" 1040K-dot LCD display and an Ethernet port.

Price: $4,999

Motorola Droid Razr

No word on a European release on this, as is Motorola’s wont, but it’s worth looking at what the manufacturer’s first major post-Google takeover handset will look like. As expected from a handset boasting the Razr brand, this will likely be a thinner-than-thou smartphone with enough spec to put it up to the iPhones and Galaxy Ss of the world.

Rumour has it you can expect a dual-core 1.2GHz OMAP processor, 1Gb RAM, a 4.3" 960×540 display protected by Gorilla Glass and a Kevlar-based shell, and a camera capable of 1080p video capture. Nice to know your phone is bulletproof, though it’s unlikely that will become a selling point.
