Music Industry News - as it happens

Sony has come up with a cool new box which even unseen and un-played-with, and through the sales pitch alone, should set your acquisitive juices flowing ; ) It or, rather they, are the CLIÉ PEG-NR70V and PEG-NR70 - the first rotating color LCD screen hand-helds. "Think about playing color games with sound, taking photos with special effects, listening to your favorite music and keeping your datebook," says Russell Paik, vice president of handheld marketing at Sony Electronics.

The first handhelds to support Dragonball Super VZ (66MHz) processor and 16 MB of DRAM (15 MB available), the CLIÉ PEG-NR70V and NR70 offer three configurations:

OPEN - The devices open in a v-shape configuration for optimal screen viewing and access to the integrated keyboard. "Type quick notes to friends or update Microsoft Word application documents with supplied Documents To Go 4.0 Standard Edition."

TURN - Rotate the screen 180 degrees then fold to cover the keyboard. "This classic configuration is ideal for taking pictures with the built-in camera or jotting down notes using virtual Graffiti, a software-based Graffiti pad."

CLOSED - Rotate the display back 180 degrees and close to protect the screen from accidental taps and scratches, or for listening to the integrated MP3 player with the LCD turned off to extend battery life.

Both models feature the popular Jog Dial navigator with a back button for single-handed operation, which is ideal for scrolling through menus and supported applications. And the CLIÉ PEG-NR70V takes pictures, too, via its integrated digital camera, located on the hinge connecting the screen and keyboard.

Did I mention that I want one? But at $499.99 online, or $599.99 pre-ordered, I won't hold my breath.
