Samsung, BlackBerry, Sony, Nikon Show Off Mobility for Fall

by Nicholas Kolakowski
Samsung, RIM, Sony, Nikon and other manufacturers used a recent New York City event to show off some of the mobile products they hope will make a big marketplace impact this fall. In addition to the latest smartphones—such as RIM's BlackBerry Curve 3G and high-end BlackBerry Torch 9800, and Samsung's extensive line of Galaxy S devices—some of these companies are also rolling out devices for capturing and displaying images while on the run: Sony's Bloggie Touch Camera shoots HD video and takes 12.8-megapixel still photos, and Nikon's CoolPix S1100pj camera includes a 14-lumen internal projector for those on-the-run presentations. Mobility is considered a burgeoning segment in the tech world. Despite the rampaging success of the Apple iPhone and Google Android devices such as the Droid X—or perhaps because of it—various manufacturers seem determined to explore a wide variety of form factors that don't necessarily hew to that touch-screen, pane-of-glass model: Whether it is RIM exploring sliding QWERTY keyboards with the Torch 9800 or the Samsung Galaxy S with its variety of hardware, there's a smartphone out there for pretty much anyone's tastes. (With Skype on BlackBerry and iPhone, there's also now the VOIP to go with it.)
