CES news

Sony plans to introduce Blu-Ray discs this year. They’re 12cm, the same size as DVDs, but start with a capacity of 27GB. Plans are to increase that by 2x fairly quickly.

Looks like I’ll be able to move my photographs to a single disc more quickly than I thought…

Also announced was the PEG-NZ90. Feature list:

  • 2MP digital camera with flash
  • 16MB RAM
  • Palm OS 5 on 200MHz XScale processor
  • Removable rechargeable battery pack
  • Built-in Bluetooth
  • Slot for 802.11b card
  • 320×480 screen with 16 bit color
  • MP3 player
  • High power IR
  • Movie and sound recording and playback
  • Memory Stick slot
  • Tiny standard-layout QWERTY keyboard
  • USB printer port
  • TV output for slideshows/presentations

There’s a big picture to drool over too. Now that’s a handheld for the 21st Century, at last…
