Dan Gillmor’s Favourite Gadgets

Dan Gillmor picks his two gadgets for 2003: the Treo 600 from Handspring and Sony’s CyberShot DSC-T1 digital camera. Here is what he says:

Treo 600: “There have been other blends of mobile phone, personal organizer and online access, but none has achieved such an ideal blend…[It] has cracked the code for multifunction mobile devices.”

Cybershot: “It’s one of the new generation of so-called “credit-card” sized models. Actually it’s more like a small, thin deck of cards…But what a deck: The camera has a 5-megapixel resolution, which is more than good enough for anything I’m likely to do anytime soon. It takes 30-frames-per-second MPEG videos. There’s a 3X optical zoom. The LCD display is large, bright and clear. Battery life isn’t great, but the batteries are removable and can be recharged quickly.”
