Not everybody will want tech wizardry on their musical instruments, but if you do, the Gibson Firebird X is definitely something to consider. The guitar features automatic tuning, previously seen on the company's Robot guitars, and offers a suite of effects built-in. You've got the standard pickup selector, volume and tone controls, an 11 position rotary knob for selecting effects such as echo, reverb, compression, distortion, modulation and EQ. There are also switches for mixing effects' signal strength and changing between the standard and piezo pickups. The inclusion of Bluetooth for wireless pedal switching also takes it one step closer to gadget Nirvana. Pricing hasn't been mentioned just yet, but it's expected to be available on a limited run from December 11th 2010, so don't expect it to come cheap.

The Motorola Droid 2 Global is inching closer to a release as the Droid 2 has received a price cut over at Verizon. The Droid 2 originally shipped in August priced at $200 on contract but has now been lowered to $150 on contract, possibly indicating that Verizon is clearing off the existing stock in preparation for the global roaming version. On an unrelated note, the HTC Droid Incredible has also seen a price drop to $150, possibly in preparation of the upcoming HTC Merge. With the Droid 2 expected to feature a powerful 1.2GHz processor, Android 2.2 and more, you can bet that it's a phone that many folks are looking forward to.

The folks over at iSuppli have taken the time to inspect Samsung's Galaxy Tab, giving us a Bill of Materials (BOM) of the device. From their analysis, the Galaxy Tab costs slightly less than a similar iPad to manufacturer at $205.22, compared to the $264.27 for a 16GB 3G iPad. While many parties have cited the inclusion of front and back cameras on the Galaxy Tab as the reason for its high selling price, it's interesting to note that the parts cost just $7.95 combined. One of the key differences in pricing between the two devices will be the seven-inch display which costs just $57, compared to the iPad's IPS panel which is said to cost about $95. While checking out the material cost of these devices is already an interesting way to gain perspective, it's always worth noting that they don't include other costs such as marketing, research and other factors that might lead to tighter margins, so make your buying decision based on what's best for you, rather than worrying about which company makes more profit off you.

There are so many iPhone/iPod docks out there that it's hard to differentiate one product from another but Optoma's Neo-i iPhone/iPod speaker dock manages to do this by integrating its own pico projector. The device is capable of projecting an 854 x 480 pixel resolution image as large as 120 inches, turning it into a portable movie system for regular photos and any app that supports TV out, such as Netflix. You'll need a rather dark room as it’s rated at just 50 lumens of brightness and offers 16W of stereo audio. Aside from the iPhone/iPod, the Neo-i is capable of accepting video sources from an HDMI or VGA connection, which means support for an Apple TV or the iPad via a Dock Connector to VGA adapter. The controls on the dock itself and the bundled IR remote give users the ability to control the music to their liking. Such a device won't come cheap though, so you'll need to be prepared to shell out $449 when it ships in mid-December.
Photographers out there will probably delighted at the rumors that Panasonic's powerful compact mirrorless GF2 camera might be launched this week. South Korea's Radio Research Agency has already listed the GF2 for Monday while other sources claim that the device will be unveiled in a matter of days, which is more or less the same time frame that we're talking about. While we haven't seen the device yet, rumors pin the device as being smaller than the GF1, being one of the smallest mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras ever, possibly challenging Sony's NEX line of cameras when it comes to measurements. The camera will still use the 12-megapixel sensor, though it wasn't confirmed if it will continue to offer a pop-up flash. Despite the upcoming unveiling, the GF2 won't be shipping until early 2011, so we've still got a few months to go.
With Verizon gearing up to launch its LTE-based 4G network in several cities, two of the USB modems that will be offered have surfaced on the company's Testman site, which are the LG VL600 and the Pantech UML290. There isn't much information on these modems but both modems are expected to offer backwards compatibility with existing 3G networks. It's also worth noting that the prices and pictures on the site appear to be placeholders, so it wouldn't be a good idea to take them too seriously.
