CES: Geeks' Picks

Portability was the theme of G4's Best of the Best awards Tuesday night. The website, which covers the gadget and games culture, put the spotlight on devices that were slim, small and sleek. With a couple Sd9of exceptions, most of these devices could all fit into a single backpack. Panasonic's new HD camcorder, for example, is about the size of a can of Red Bull. Archos_705_wifi_34_3

Also featured was a combination cell phone and movie projector called Pico by Texas Instruments, as was Sony's 11-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED), which has the width of three credit cards.

Another fave was the Archos 705 WiFi, a set-top box with a detachable 7-inch touchscreen that lets users carry around up to 160 gigabytes worth of movies, music or video. If that's not enough storage, there's the upcoming Iogear Portable Media Storage Center that puts 250 gigabytes -- about 5,200 albums stored as MP3s or about 66 DVD quality movies, in your palm.
