September 2008's best new products revealed

8 innovative gadgets and tech toys to enjoy

September 2008 has proven to be a bumper month for exciting new gadgets, with new cameras, TVs, NAS drives, and a laptop from Samsung that has critics drooling.

Toshiba Cell TV

We got a chance this month to see Toshiba's latest prototype TV based on the powerful Cell processor and it had a new feature over the version shown at CES back in January. It can automatically analyze and display multiple chapters of a TV show stored on a hard disk drive. The set decoded 5 high-def streams simultaneously and played them back on-screen. One was the main picture and the other four were for navigation to different chapters. We also got a clue to a launch date: autumn 2009 in Japan. That puts is about a year away from launch so you'd better get saving.
