The 12-in-1 uber-gadget

It does it all, but how well?

Calibryze

While the converging technologies of phones and music players continue to command attention, we should all be reminded that these aren't the only forms of consumer electronics that are morphing together. In fact, there's one new handheld that puts them all to shame in the all-in-one category.

How so, you ask? The "Brica ViewArt 1000" is an uber-device with a 2.5-inch display that "combines a still camera, camcorder, MP3 player, FM radio, voice recorder, e-book viewer, Webcam and a DVR," according to Technabob. So there.

But only 512MB internal memory for something that's billed as a "12-in-1" gadget? That's like building a Ferrari with a 2-gallon tank. Call us cynical, but for some reason we wouldn't expect stellar performance on its many fronts for a price of $265.
