Lenovo's mystery handheld

A small handheld computer from Lenovo that's available only in China right now surfaces at CES 2008.

LAS VEGAS--At Lenovo's press dinner the other night there was an unidentified handheld on display, sitting casually next to the three new consumer-friendly IdeaPad laptops the company had come to Las Vegas to push.

No one--not even the PR people for Lenovo--could give me specific details. All they could say was that it is only available in China, the company's home market. This video gives a bit more detail, including that it runs Linux and uses a new 45-nanometer chip from Intel.

From what I saw, it had a lot of nice features, even if it was a bit hefty: GPS, music, Web browsing, a camera, plus several-layer-deep menus I didn't have time to delve into.

No word on whether it's something planned for the North American market any time soon.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
