Sony has unveiled two very non-pricey, highly affordable point and shoot Cyber-shots with high end specs. The DSC-TX1 and DSC-WX1 are both new additions to Sony’s Cyber-shot range. Sony has blessed the TX1 and WX1 with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor, the Exmor R. If you’re wondering why the duo will have near DSLR specs, its mainly because of its sensor. Their sensors will be based on those found in Sony’s DSLRs, this promises to deliver optimal low-light performance without help from a flash or tripod – something that not many point and shoots are doing so well at the moment.
Both 10.2 megapixel TX1 and WX1 will be under the stunning budget price of $380. The $350 WX1 features the exact same G Lens, low-light optimized Exmor R CMOS sensor and Sweep Panaroma mode as seen in Sony’s $500 HX1 mega zoom camera.
Nintendo has announced that a new black version of its popular video game console Wii will be arriving in August. Those of you who have held up on buying the original white colour themed Wii for the past two years may now finally be tempted to a make purchase.
Though there won’t be any changes in terms of hardware, I must say that the black Wii as well as its black Wiimote pictured looks amazing.
While we know how pricey the Sony VAIO P Series may already be, we didn’t get to really try it out and get hands on with it recently. After having done that at the Gadget Show Live recently, we truly agree that if you had the desire and the money to spend on the new Sony portable beast then you should also drop your coin on this, Vaja’s leather made “ivolution suit”.
SlashGear appears to have received a demo unit of the new HTC Touch Diamond flagship – the Diamond2, which was announced back in the MWC this year. Just unboxing, it wasn’t very impressive at all, the box didn’t even say HTC and the accessories that were included were just standard. But the handset itself appears nice, larger screen compared to the first gen HTC Touch Diamond and its also gained a higher resolution camera five megapixel, still no flash though.

Straight after the Easter long weekend, Nikon has now announced the recently much rumored D5000. With a 2.7-inch articulating display, the D5000 is equipped with a 12.3 megapixel DX-format sensor that maxes out at ISO 3200 with a 4fps burst rate, sports one-button Live View, and 720/24p movie mode. Other features include an 11-point AF system with 3D focus tracking and 19 scene modes. With a number of high end features, the price tag is pretty heavy as well, the D5000 will cost $849 with a 18-55 VR kit lens, or $729 for just the body – not surprisingly, this price tag is just under that of the Canon T1i.
