New Samsung ST80 Wifi P&S (and HMX-E10 slim camcorder stick)

Samsung has announced two new items today, the ST80 wifi point and shoot digital camera, and a slim-shady camcorder stick that is inspired by smartphones.

Samsung ST80 point and shoot camera
This is your typical 14mp 1/2.3" digital camera with a 3X (35-105mm eq) optical zoom lens but with a twist - it has built-in WiFi support and includes free access to Boingo hotspots. Other features include a 3-inch (230K) touchscreen, 720p video, LiIon battery and things like that. It should come out in August for 300 euro (Europe) and September for around $250 (US).

We yell at companies when they give a single camera different names around the world, so it is only fair to applaud them when they return to their senses and give a camera the same name around the world. So kudos to Samsung for naming this ST80 everywhere (as far as we can tell) and preventing global confusion.

Samsung HMX-E10 slim camcorder stick
Yesterday Panasonic announced a new camcorder-stick, today, Samsung takes the camcorder sticks to a whole 'nother level by making their new model look slicker and more like a smartphone. If people love smartphones, why not give them what they already love? :)

It has a 1/3.2" CMOS sensor, 2.7" touchscreen display, a lens that swivels 270-degrees, and an opening price of $200.
