What’s coming next from ShinyPlastic?

Over the next two weeks we are going to be really busy:

We will be attending the DigitalLife and PhotoPlus trade shows along with some fun Press only parties where cool new gadgets will be previewed…. of course we will have our camera and will tell you all about it.

We will keep adding to VGAPocketPC as well as working on some other sites we are currently building. Coming next on VGAPocketPC is a newbies guide to choosing the perfect VGA Pocket PC.

We also have lots more gadgets we are in the process of reviewing including the radioSHARK FM Radio tuner/recorder, the Buffalo Linkstation Wireless Hard Drive, Shure E3c Earphones, The Canon 20D SLR Digital Camera, and an Audia-X Power Supply.

Finally we have a couple of other articles planned: a comparison of a range of high speed compactflash cards that tells you when you need a high speed card and when a basic one is good enough, and some pointers on how to take better photos of your gadgets (for sites like this, selling on ebay etc).
