Copy of Samsung Galaxy NX 4G - The Samsung 20.3MP DSLR Running On Android
While there are biggest Samsung fans (than I am) around, I must admit that Samsung is a company that never ceases to to amaze me by the simplicity of their products and their out-of-the-box thinking. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy NX model (also check the Samsung Galaxy Android Camera (EK-GC100) we featured earlier) – a full DSLR with interchangeable lens that runs on Google’s Android and has access to tens of thousands of photo apps in the Google Play store! But let’s see what’s under the hood:

  • 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor with flash
  • 1/6000 second top shutter speed
  • Fast AF (Hybrid AF System)
  • JPEG, RAW, RAW+JPEG capture and 1920 x 1080 HD video capture @ 30fps
  • Interchangeable Lens compatible with all NX System lenses
  • ISO range from 100 to 25,600
  • 4.8″ LCD touch screen (1.44-million dot resolution)
  • 1.6GHz Quad-core processor + DRIMe IV imaging processor + 2MB RAM + 16GB on board storage
  • Connectivity: GPS, Blutooth 4.0, WiFi, 3G/4G/LTE, NFC/li>
  • Runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 with full access to Google Play store

Cool, isn’t it? Especially when you you can download your favorite photo and sharing aps from Google! There’s only one extra thing I wish Galaxy NX had – and that’s voice calling! But hey, I have to be reasonable here, this is not an iPhone or Android smartphone, this is a full DSLR in all its rights!

23-in Full HD HP Sprout Creativity Station Product J4W72AA#ABA
There’s been a while since we heard exciting news from the desktop side of personal computing! But that’s all about to change with the Sprout, the latest HP project in desktop personal computers, a 23-in touch screen Windows 8.1 machine with Intel RealSense 3D camera which combines depth-sensing and infrared cameras for accurate 3D scanning and a second screen projected on a large capacitive touchpad called TouchMat to allow users Kinect-type interactions with the PC. So how does it actually work? The main screen of the Sprout works just like any Windows 8 touch enabled LCD. The Illumintor (that scanner part) scans 2D and 3D objects placed on the TouchMat, transfers them live to a design app on the Sprout and allows users to interact with scans using the same TouchMat as input device and secondary display at the same time! Cool, isn’t it?

The HP Sprout Creativity Station is powered by a 4th gen Core i7-4790S processor and has NVIDIA GeForce GT graphics, 1TB of storage, 8GBs of RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and a 23″ Full HD 1080p touch-enabled backlit LCD display.
