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 small, light, XP PC

Raon Everun UMPC

The diminutive Raon - 128mm long and less than 500g in weight - is for travellers who want their laptop to feel not much heavier than a densely woven doily. This Windows XP-based handheld sports a full qwerty keyboard, a 4.8in touchscreen that can shift between portrait and landscape modes, and your choice of either a standard 60GB hard drive or 6GB of energy-saving solid-state storage.

Integrated Wi-Fi lets you log on to the internet; a docking station, a car mount, and an external keyboard are optional. This ultramobile PC (UMPC) earns its name with a battery life rated by the maker at 7 hours for the standard battery and 12 hours for a larger, enhanced unit.

Availability: Korea (but at least the enhanced battery should last through the long flight back)
