Sony Bloggie camcorder is squarely cool

Shane McGlaun | | Thu, Sep 2 2010 11:02 AM CDT

For a long time camcorders were not designed to be compact and portable. This was mostly because the hardware inside the camcorders was fairly large early on. As technology advanced and components shrunk along with video sharing sites like YouTube becoming crazy popular, camcorders slimmed up and went portable so users could take them everywhere. Sony has unveiled a new thin and portable camcorder for video fans called the Bloggie Touch.

The little camcorder is very nice looking with a brushed silver aluminum look case and shiny chrome trim. The thing looks a lot like your typical bar style smartphone to me. It's not a phone though and can record full HD video and shoot still shots as well. Those still shots can be taken in 12.8MP resolution.

Samsung also out with official press shots of GALAXY Tab 90 | TweakTown.com

The images reveal a rather stylish and sexy looking device in my opinion, albeit maybe a little chubby, but it's a bit tough to tell properly from the photos. The device has a black front and a white back.

If the pictures are anything to go by, the device is targeted to very attractive and handsome 20 something's, so if you are older or younger and not attractive, give this thing a miss. Anyway, you can check out a bunch of the best shots in our gallery below or see the rest at the link above.
