Sansa e280 MP3 Player

Although some Apple disciples would argue that it’s an iPod world and we all just live in it, those adventurous souls willing to venture outside the iPod realm will be pleasantly surprised by this new MP3 player from SanDisk, which, at 8GB, is currently the largest capacity MP3 player on the market. It boasts twice the storage capacity of the iPod Nano for the same price, and also features an expansion slot so you can transfer photos, videos, music and voice recordings to your computer, PDA or mobile phone. The 1.8-inch color screen isn’t too shabby, either. $249.99. (www.lilmonsta.com)

RoverTv

Fresh from the latest-and-greatest-gadget department comes RoverTv, the world’s first truly pocket-sized mobile media player. It packs a high-resolution, four-inch color screen into a wee five-ounce package and records content directly from TV, DVR, DVD, VCR, CD or computer for digital color playback on the go. There’s also a built-in FM radio receiver so you can listen to and record FM radio, in addition to MP3s. RoverTv’s rechargeable, built-in lithium ion battery provides a minimum of six hours of video viewing. “The Sopranos” on the shuttle? “The Office” at the office? Given that RoverTv might easily become your new favorite inflight toy, the sky is literally the limit. $349. (www.rovertv.com)

G-Tech Wireless Smartphone Keyboard

For road warriors whose thumbs are growing weary of typing long messages on tiny, constrictive thumbpads, this Bluetooth-enabled fabric keyboard is a welcome alternative. Compatible with most devices offered by BlackBerry, Nokia, Palm and Microsoft, it’s a laptop-sized Qwerty accessory that you can roll up and stuff in your pocket for easy transport. And it’s waterproof with a wipe-clean finish, so no worries about spills or crumbs. $159. (www.eleksen.com)

Samsung Q1 Ultra Mobile PC

Leave it to the folks at innovation powerhouse Samsung (in conjunction with Microsoft and Intel) to come up with this Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC), which boasts performance comparable to full-sized notebooks.Weighing in at 1.7 pounds, with a seven-inch LCD with touch-screen capability, it’s sleek, chic and uber-portable. Equipped with Bluetooth and wired/wireless LAN for easy Internet access, the Q1’s AVS function lets you enjoy movies, music, still photos and video without booting up Windows. There’s also a cool “inking” function that lets you input data right through the monitor screen — just like you’re scribbling a note. $1,099. (www.samsung.com)
