Porsche Design is anything but predictable and with the release of the BOOK ONE they’re exploring new terrain yet again. This time, a 2-in-1 laptop computer with a detachable display that functions as a tablet. The display is deployed using a VarioHinge, inspired by the gearbox of a sports car. Under the hood there’s a 7th Gen 2.70 GHz Intel i7-7500U processor, 16 GB RAM, & 512 GB SSD hard drive. Battery life is 14 hours.
The Playbase from SONOS is a tidy solution for bringing dynamic premium sound to your home viewing & gaming experience. Its low-profile design practically disappears beneath your TV and set-up is simple: 2 cords, one for power & one optical cord connecting the TV. App access allows 1-touch streaming from over 30 services & TruePlay speaker tuning enables you to customize the sound to best fit your space & speaker configuration.
A smart, compact form and Smart IC technology combine to make this one ingenious dual-port USB wall charger.

A clean, minimal design in matte aluminum, the latest wireless speaker cube in the Beoplay lineup is the 240-watt Beolit 17.

It offers one-touch connection to your device and 4 operating modes through the Beoplay App, including an alarm w/snooze function, remote control, & lots of options for audio presets.
Sony went big with the Xperia XZ Premium. Its 5.5” 4K HDR display has 801 ppi resolution—roughly twice that of iPhone 7 Plus and the 19MP camera can shoot at ridiculous frame rates up to 960 fps. IP68 waterproofing and dust resistance ensure that the Snapdragon 835 processor will run smoothly in all environments. No word on the price yet, but with this build sheet, you can guess it’ll be a lot more than that new Nokia 3310.
Sony’s Xperia Touch is an interactive home projector that adapts to any flat surface. On tables, walls or floors, you can watch videos, play games, read, draw pictures, or use it to leave messages & reminders. It has 32GB of onboard storage as well as wi-fi, bluetooth, & NFC capabilities.
Nokia brought back a classic. The iconic 3310 has been reimagined for 2017 but retains much of the original awesomeness, including that 1-month battery life. They’ve added a 2MP camera w/LED flash, 2G connectivity for talk & text, a headphone jack for the onboard FM radio or your tunes—with a MicroSD slot to store up to 32GB.
