June is always a busy month for new gadgets. The E3 video games show, Taiwan's Computex IT show and Singapore's CommunicAsia all provide a launching pad for new products and other companies are busy preparing new gizmos for the upcoming mid-year holidays.
Sanyo waterproof Xacti with Wi-Fi: The ability to transmit photos and videos via the Internet as soon as they are taken has been added to Sanyo's Waterproof Xacti WH1 camera. A new model of the camera, originally launched in March, was unveiled in late May with support for the Eye-Fi card. Eye-Fi is an SD card-size Wi-Fi adapter. It fits in any SD card slot, but the gadget that it's connected to must support the card. That's what Sanyo has added with the new camera. The waterproofing will keep the camera safe in up to about 3 meters of water. It has a 30-times optical zoom lens and can shoot 720p high-def movies.
