LAPTOP Magazine’s editors scoured the CES show floor to pick the best products in each of 18 mobile categories–and that’s no small feat. Here is the list of the Top 5 based on the appearence in the list.
Notebooks: OQO model 02
: An Ultra-Mobile PC we’d actually buy, the one-pound OQO model 02 is faster than the company’s original handheld Windows PC, and it sports a brighter five-inch display and better keyboard. But the killer feature is built-in Sprint EV-DO, which makes it easy to grab your e-mail and surf the Web from virtually anywhere in the U.S.
Notebook Accessories: Asus XG Station
: This is the kind of product that makes you ask, “Why didn’t I think of that?” The Asus XG Station is an external graphics card station that can transform your thin-and-light laptop into the ultimate gaming machine. Just connect it to your notebook via ExpressCard, hook up a monitor, and you’re ready to go. It even features 5.1 surround sound.
Cell Phones: LG VX9400
: Boasting an innovative landscape display, the LG VX9400 is the perfect complement to Verizon Wireless’ new V CAST Mobile TV service, delivering broadcast-quality video and near-instant channel changing to mobile phones. We love the dedicated launch button for TV, and it’s a cinch to navigate the program guide.
Cell Phone Accessories: Jabra BT8010
: A first for Bluetooth accessories, the Jabra BT8010 is a convertible headset that allows users to seamlessly switch between mono mode (for making calls) and stereo mode (for listening to music).
You’ve heard of push e-mail. This is push Internet. The very slick Yahoo Go for Mobile 2.0 brings the best of the Web to cell phones via a brilliant carousel interface that lets users quickly cycle through different widgets. The service delivers everything from news and weather to local search and photos.
