10 cool gadgets we can't wait to get our hands on

They're not available here... yet

The coolest gadgets almost always debut overseas. But we'll get them eventually, and we can't wait

A tiny, big screen

Panasonic Viera P905i

Think of it as the world's smallest "big-screen" TV. Panasonic's Viera Ketai handset boasts a 3in screen with a contrast ratio of 2000:1 - comparable to that of many full-size LCDs, along with powerful image processing and a tuner for Japan's 1seg ("one seg") mobile broadcasting service.

You can use the Panasonic Viera P905i as a standard vertical flip phone to make calls, or turn it 90 degrees and flip the screen open horizontally to watch TV and play 3D games. High-speed broadband, GPS tracking, and a 5Mp camera complete the package.

Availability: Japan only; distributed by NTT DoCoMo
