Tablet PCs stole the show here at CES, but Tegra-powered smartbooks like the Mobbinova Beam offer Tegra's multimedia functionality in a more traditional form-factor. The Beam is built for ultra-portable entertainment: weighing just less than 2 pounds, the device sports an 8.9-inch screen, with a 1024 by 600 pixel resolution. You can also expect about eight hours of battery life.
When you're ready for more screen real estate, just connect the Beam to your television by way of the HDMI cable, and enjoy 1080p content that's surprisingly smooth for such a low-powered machine. The Beam will run Windows CE and Google's Android OS, with a widget-driven UI created by the folks at Mobbinova. It'll be available exclusively from AT&T with access to Wi-Fi and 3G networks, though pricing plans haven't been announced.
