Sharp Systems of America, a division of Sharp Electronics, announced two new LCD monitors: 17" LL-T17D3 and 18.1" LL-T18A1. We’ve actually mentioned both of them at the moment they debuted in Japan in August and December last year, so posting most of it again.
17" LL-T17D3 feature 1280x1024 (SXGA) LCD panels, 250cd/m² brightness, 500:1 contrast, 0.264mm dot pitch, 135° vertical and 160° horizontal viewing angle, 17ms response time. Monitors also feature analog and DVI sockets, mode selectors (standard, vivid, sRGB), stereo speakers (2x1W) and multilanguage OSDs. Measured 398x188x376 mm, they weigh about 6.5kg and consume 47W (3W in standby). MSRP is $499.
Ultrathin LL-T18A1 supports 1280x1024 resolution, features 160° viewing angle, 350:1 contrast, 250cd/m² brightness, <15ms response time. Supporting portrait mode and automatic color/brightness correction, the monitor has two DVI-D and one D-Sub input. The dimensions are 422x217x420 mm, weight – 5.4 kg (display itself) and 7kg total, MSRP $699.
68-pin ATA flash cards require 3.3V or 5V and feature 32Mb to 4Gb (PCMCIA 2.1; 32Mb to 3.6Gb Type II; 4Gb Type III).
CompactFlash units (Type I/II) are represented by 32Mb to 1Gb capacities, support PCMCIA 2.1, 3.3V and 5V voltage.
New 2.5" Simple Tech flash memory hard disks feature usual IDE interface and 32Mb to 8Gb capacities.
Another interesting solution, released under Simple Tech brands: FlaschDiskModule industrial modules with 44-pin IDE interface and 32Mb to 512Mb capacities.
About pricing: 4Gb ATA flash cards will cost about $6150, 1Gb devices $1380. 1Gb Simple Tech CF Type II products are offered for $1700 each, 2.5" 4Gb IDE hard drives – for $6150, 512Mb FlaschDiskModules – for $840.

CPU architecture has remained the same: the actual clock is still 2.133GHz and FSB is still 266MHz. Similar to previous models, the novelty has 128Kb L1 cache, 256Kb L2 cache. Core voltage is 1.65V, max energy consumption – 60W, core size 80 mm², process technology – 0.13 micron.
About 49 system builders are expected to release systems on AMD Athlon MP 2600+ worldwide. In over 1000-unit quantities AMD Athlon MP 2600+ will cost $273. this has naturally shifted wholesale prices for other processors in this line: Athlon MP 2400+ (2.0GHz) will now cost $228 each, Athlon MP 2200+ (1.8GHz) $208, Athlon MP 2000+ (1.67GHz) – $153.Archos is expected to showcase two new products: AV340 and ArcDisk.
Archos AV340 AV player with 40Gb HDD and LCD screen will support MPEG4 video (from 352x288 to 640x368) as well as MP3 audio. PC connectivity will be provided via USB 2.0.
ArcDisk is a portable USB 2.0 storage device, sized for a t-shirt pockets, according to makers. ArcDisk bases on 1.8" hard disk. We shall see two ArcDisk models in the market: 20Gb and 40Gb in capacity. Pricing and shipping information is unavailable at the moment.
PictBridge defines an interface for full-duplex camera-printer interaction, that provides full compatibility with products of various makers.
As planned, USB 2.0 was chosen as the first interface for PictBridge, at that a digital camera operates as a "USB device" and a printer – as a "USB host". In the future PictBridge specs are to be moved to other interface types, USB On-The-Go (USB OTG), in particular. In the future new versions of PictBridge will be updated in printers and cameras via firmware upgrade.
OCZ Technology added new PC-3200 memory modules with 2-2-2 timings to its EL DDR line.
OCZ PC-3200 EL DDR specifications feature the proprietary promoted ULN (Ultra Low Noise shielded PCB) technology for lower noise pickups, the best selected DDR400 chips, and copper heat-sinks. New 184-pin Unbuffered 256Mb and 512Mb OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 modules with CL 2-2-2 operate at 2.7V and 200 (400) MHz.
