They promised more info for this week, and they gave us new info. Unfortunately...it's not quite shaping up to what we were hoping for, considering Lumix's awesome reputation. Budget Sony Ericsson with 13MP camera, anyone?
Yamaha's booth at CEATEC featured a few cloth posters with mundane advertisements on them that seem to lack any attention-grabbing oomph—until you step directly in front of them and realize that they're incredibly thin directional speakers. Whoa!

Fujitsu says that their F-Circle concept phone—designed by Yuji Ito and shown at CEATEC in Japan—has a "timeless appearance." Liars. I know your cellphone comes straight from the 60s, and apparently it can detect land mines. [Pink Tentacle]
