Had enough of the summer heat? The folks at Kodak, Sony, and T-Mobile suggest you escape to the cool air conditioning of your local retailer and track down these hot gadgets.

Instant Gratification!

Kodak
Kodak believes it has the cure for impatient picture takers: The portable Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock. Instead of waiting until you get home to enjoy your summer vacation photos, you can now instantly print, send “picture postcards,” or hand out prints to those you’re traveling with. Waterproof pictures can be in your hands in as little as 60 seconds, with or without a computer, using your digital camera or camera phone. With the touch of one button, the whole family gets to laugh at Uncle Al for forgetting his sun block, the whole way home.

If you’re looking for your own personal photo lab operation, consider the Digital Photo Solution. It’s a Kodak EasyShare digital camera and Printer Dock Series 3, conveniently packaged together in one box.

Another way to share all your vacation pictures is with the new Kodak EasyShare Picture Viewer, a portable digital photo album that doesn’t take up any room in your suitcase, let alone your pocket. The size of a credit card, the Picture Viewer boasts a 2.5-inch high-resolution display screen to view up to 150 of your favorite pictures, anytime, anywhere. The unit also accepts memory cards and can easily be hooked up to a printer.



Playtime, 365 Days a Year

Sony
You’ve heard the hype, but now it’s time for you to discover the PSP (PlayStation Portable) for yourself! With 64-bit graphics, a wide-screen LCD, wireless connectivity, and the ability to play games, music and movies when and where you want, it’s a must-have for any media maven.

With a wide range of accessories and connectivity options, including Memory Stick, USB 2.0, IR port and WiFi wireless LAN, PSP is the newest entertainment platform from the PlayStation family, and a revolutionary device.


The Celebrity Craze

T-Mobile
What do Paris Hilton and Owen Wilson have in common? They’re just two of many Hollywood heavyweights who won’t leave home without their T-Mobile Sidekick II. Now you can check e-mail from anywhere on a large color screen. Need to chat? Send an IM* to your best friend or sit back and surf the Web. An integrated camera, upgraded phone, and personalized rings (that sound like real music), round out the deal. Your biggest dilemma will be choosing which interchangeable color bumper best matches your shoes.

*AOL Instant Messenger is built-in and the device also supports Yahoo! Messenger
