When a device like this is released, it makes us realize how fast technology is evolving and how old we are getting. Toshiba unveiled their new camcorder, the BW10, which is a waterproof digital camcorder. Technology has evolved in such a way that digital cameras were made waterproof so were watches and phones and now guess is the time for digital camcorders. We can think of a good use for this one; for people who want to get married underwater, can now have their wedding recorded on video, good use.
Back to the new waterproof digital camcorder, the new Camileo BW10 is built with water protection (which is why it’s waterproof) and is also resistant to many destroying factors such as scratches and shocks. For starters, this digital camcorder comes with a rubber exterior which means that it automatically protects the device from falls or scratches. For this camcorder, you won’t have to worry about it dropping into water at all. The device can record 1080p full HD videos at 30fps. It will be released in June at the price of about $186.

Can the new Sony digital camera pose as heavy competition against other big name cameras? Experts seem to think that this time, Sony’s NEX-7 will have just about the same effect. More on the camera itself, the NEX-7 can shoot full HD resolution (1080p) video at up to 60fps. Sony’s other digital camera; the NEX-5 can shoot full HD resolution (1080p) video at up to 720p at 120fps. Images are expected to be clear while recording in the AVCHD codec in both cameras.
Since Sony has been struggling hard to make a name for itself or rather, to attain a steady place in the market amidst heavy competition, experts claim that the NEX-7 will be the device to watch out for. Some claim that with its type of features, the Sony NEX-7 can stand up on its own to Panasonic’s very own Micro Four Thirds GH2 digital camera.

Rumor has it that HTC is planning on releasing two more on its devices, the Huashan and Hengshan. Reports conclude that both the Huashan and Hengshan work on Windows OS. Though, they come with no QWERTY so indefinitely the phones are touchscreen-based.
Since this is just a rumor, very few details have been unveiled on these HTC devices. For starters, the HTC Hengshan comes with a screen that has a resolution of 320 x 480. Meanwhile, the HTC Huashan also has a screen that comes with a resolution of 800 x 480.
As far as the reports are concerned, these are all we know. Though, we doubt that the Huashan and Hengshan are the real names for the phones. If you recall earlier, there was a mention of these phones on the document that was leaked some time back which contained the HTC roadmap for 2010. We can only say stay tuned until more details pop up.
