LeapFrog intros “Baby BlackBerry”This “Baby BlackBerry” is not from RIM, which would explain all that cheap plastic and the cutesy animal theme. It’s a Text and Learn PDA for kids from LeapFrog. Your little ones will have a jump start on the other kids when it comes to texting and churning out emails.

Alright, so it wont let them email everyone on your contact list. The device features a full QWERTY keyboard and a large LCD display. No Wi-Fi, which should keep your rugrat out of trouble. Just be aware that you are grooming your kid to ask for the real deal in just a few short years. And an unlimited data plan. It will be available in August for £19.99.

O2Micro LogoYou know just the other day I was using my notebook and thought to myself what I really wanted was for my notebook to work more like my PDA from 2002. Well, OK so maybe I wasn’t thinking that, PDA’s died out years ago.

That didn’t stop O2Micro from getting a patent for a new PC architecture that allows a PC to be integrated with a PDA architecture. O2Micro says the system would place a secondary screen on a notebook that could be used to access data PDA style.

Elektrobit PDA style Satellite phone
Sat phones used to be exclusively for rich Indiana Jones types. Elektrobit is hoping to change that with their new PDA-style satellite phone concept. It’s not only sleek, but they promise it will also be cost competitive with regular cell phones. Elektrobit didn’t skimp on functionality. It’s got Windows Mobile 6.1 professional, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, VoIP, touch screen, voice control, 3MP camera and both HSDPA and satellite connectivity.

You might notice the lack of an antenna on this one too. If this does come to market as planned in 2009, it’s sure to be a hit. It’s designed to be compatible with the Terrestar satellite network, which has not been launched yet. If the satellite network launches as planned they should do well with this one.

The Triforce touchscreen pointer

The Triforce touchscreen pointer
The Triforce Touchscreen Pointer has nothing to do with zelda, so you won’t have to go around collecting pieces of the Triforce. Despite having nothing to do with Zelda, it might be something genuinely useful. It’s an alternative to the traditional stylus, a touchscreen pointer for handheld devices like mobile phones and PDAs.

No more fumbling with your PDA’s long stylus and the lanyard means no more dropping it. No info on pricing yet, but it won’t be a lot. In fact expect to see these start showing up as promotional items and in swag bags everywhere.

PDA/Tablet concept for elderly people

PDA/Tablet concept for elderly people
The idea behind this tablet/pda device is not to lure the elderly into gaming with a cute device full of pretty icons.(though I’m sure that would work) It’s to track every movement the elderly make. Not because we fear them…they’re old. It’s because Nokia believes this is the best way to keep them around longer.

By monitoring what they consume via RFID tags; from expired foods, medicine, possible allergens and nutritional info. It could probably even tell you if they have been putting toys in their mouths while watching Matlock, like babies do. It’s easy to read and use and that’s the key. This pad hopes to be a vital tool for the upcoming explosion of elderly Baby Boomers.(Which is bound to be a mess. Baby Boomers explode with twice the power of your typical spontaneous combustion.)
