The 3GSM news just keeps on coming, and Toshiba wows us with an impressive set of two new Windows Mobile smart phones that are geared to take advantage of HSDPA-level speeds. The G900 has a jaw-dropping 3-inch WVGA display, a 2-megapixel camera, a video conference camera on the front, 64MB of internal memory, miniSD expansion, 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, USB, video calling, USB storage, and the aforementioned triband HSDPA. The G900 also features a biometric scanner that can be used to secure Toshiba laptops via Bluetooth. The Toshiba E01 is not nearly as fancy, but it does feature a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and a 65,000-color display. Launch date and pricing are still unknown, but this certainly looks promising all the same.
Is this a real RoboCop?
The K5 robot, developed by Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Knightscope, is designed to be a surveillance robot for law enforcement, private security firms, schools and anything else looking for an extra set of eyes and ears on the ground. The 5-foot, 300-pound robot can roam autonomously, sending back real time data about an area with technology that does facial recognition, lidar mapping and 360-degree video. CNET's Kara Tsuboi got a closer look at what makes the K5 robot tick.
