Philips LX1000 micro Media Center

Philips LX1000

Once I already wrote about LITTLE LLUON – compact Media Center PC based on AMD Turion and nVidia. Here is a similar one from Philips – LX1000. Featuring a 1.8GHz AMD Turion 64, 1GB of RAM, a 120GB drive, integrated analog/digital TV tuner, WiFi, a dual-layer DVD burner, and NVIDIA GeForce 6600 graphics in a 195 x 58 x 212mm form factor, it can be a competitor of Mac Mini (in spite of its price), especially for Linux users.

However, the price of LX1000 is not so pleasant for a purse – £999 (about $1500).

Yet another Skype phone

VoIP841 phone

Philips drops a cordless VoIP841 phone. As usual, the phone is accompanied by a remote DECT base station that plugs into both the broadband connection and the traditional phone line. So, it handles both Skype and ordinary calls in one phone. The VoIP841 has a color screen and stylish design. But, unlike many others Skype-phones, the VoIP841 doesn’t need a PC. It needs just an Internet connection. It’s possible becuase the phone uses Linux as its embedded OS.
The phone will be available this Autumn. The price is not listed yet.

Philips Pronto Professional

Pronto Professional

Philips is going to announce its new IR controller Pronto Professional TSU9600 on CEDIA 2006. The TSU9600 has “ultra-reliable wireless extenders, and more functionality for multi-room solutions”. The unit will be programmed with a new software called ProntoEdit Professional which will make programming procedure easily.

The 3.7-inch touchscreen has an amazing 640 x 480 (full VGA) display, giving it a higher pixel density than any current touchscreen home control unit. The display has a virtually unbreakable protective screen cover that eliminates a potential cause of failure in touchscreen devices.
