This hotly anticipated debut from HTC and Verizon Wireless is designed for those at the forefront of mobile technology. It features the newest version of the HTC Sense experience, a seven-panel home screen with a wide selection of interactive widgets so the most important content is immediately available at a touch. The first Verizon Wireless phone to take advantage of Qualcomm’s 1GHz lightning-fast Snapdragon processor, it’s also the first Verizon phone to include an 8-megapixel camera. Besides quick and easy access to Flickr for sharing and viewing pictures and video as well as to Android Market with more than 30,000 Google applications, it even boasts a tool called Friend Stream for streamlined updates from popular social networking sites — perfect for the ultimate social animal. $199.99 (after $100 mail-in rebate and with two-year customer agreement).
Toshiba Canvio for Mac Portable Hard Drive
Continuing Toshiba’s commitment to make backing up and recovering data simple and easy, the new Canvio for Mac line provides Mac owners 500GB, 750GB, or 1TB (terabyte) of storage space, with pre-loaded Mac-customized backup software. Smaller than a postcard and weighing less than six ounces, it makes data backup simple for everyone from novices to the most tech-savvy. The included NTI Shadow 5 for Mac software allows for fully customized backup and synchronization, including the backup of specific folders and file types, and the frequency of backups can be adjusted to different periods from weekly to continuously for greater convenience. Complete password protection with up to 256-bit data encryption prevents unauthorized access, while a special Drive Space Alert monitor sends an onscreen update when storage space is running low. That’s probably unlikely, though — the 1TB version can hold up to 285,000 digital photos, 263,000 digital music files or 820 digital movies. $119.99–189.99.
White Jabra STONE
Heralded as one of the best headset solutions on the market upon its initial introduction, the White Jabra STONE raises the bar once again with this spanking-new, snow-white hue, making it as chic as it is functional. A nearly invisible touch-controlled volume pad on the outside of the headset lets you simply slide your finger up or down to control the volume while on a call. The Jabra StatusDisplay makes it simple to check battery level and Blue-tooth connectivity, and its multipoint capability effortlessly connects two Bluetooth devices at the same time. It also streams music from A2DP-enabled mobile phones. Available exclusively through AT&T, it’s that truly elusive combination: drop-dead good looks and brains, too. $129.99.
Oregon Scientific ATC9K All-Terrain Video Camera
Do you like to play as hard as you work? Here’s the camcorder for you. Strap this user-friendly, waterproof and shock-resistant camera to a helmet, handlebars, surfboard or snowboard so it can follow you anywhere you wouldn’t dare bring a traditional camera — and shoot in high definition. Scuba-diving or jumping out of a plane at 12,500 feet? The compact ATC9K features a built-in G-sensor that measures the force of gravity during acceleration, deceleration and hang time, allowing you to record and review every detail of your performance. Designed for the rugged adventurer, the ATC9K doesn’t sacrifice function over form — it’s equipped with full 1080p professional-quality HD video, shoots up to 60 frames per second, has a 130-degree field of view, captures 5-megapixel photos and has a built-in color LCD display that lets you preview and play back videos. And unlike the camera itself, the price is far from extreme. $299.99.
