PlayTest's Booths Part 2 - Travel and Entertainment & Gaming

Travel

At the Travel booth, we had quite a wide variety of gadgets, ranging from GPS devices, photo-editing software apps, portable printers, and pocket friendly HD camcorders. The team taught the crowd how to capture precious moments on the road with the latest HD cams, do on-the-spot quick photo enhancement, and how to properly utilize GPS devices.

Notable products at the booth were the locally unreleased Linksys Flip Mino HD, Holux 6210T GPS, Mio Moov GPS, Canon PowerShot S90 prosumer camera and Panasonic Lumix GF1 using the Micro Four Thirds camera system.

Entertainment & Gaming

For gamers, this was the booth to visit as it featured gadgets from different platforms that either help make gaming more fluid and accessible (e.g., Acer Ferrari One, HP M311 Ion netbook, Dell Alienware M17x) or are just plain great devices for on-the-go multimedia purposes (e.g., Archos 5 Internet Tablet, Microsoft Zune HD and X mini II speakers). And oh yes, who can forget the awesome PS3
and the recently released PSP Go and the Sony Ericsson Aino mobile phone? The special catch with the latter two devices are their media streaming capabilities from your home's PS3 using WiFi from any location.
