BenQ P50 If this Taiwanese quad-band phone ever hits American soil, it could give the Treo a run for its money. With integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPRS, the P50 is designed to connect to the Net wherever you go. And with a built-in Intel Bulverde processor, it's among the most powerful Windows smartphones on the market. $850 (est.); www.benq.com.tw


Panasonic D-Snap SV-SD100V Worried about which music files will work with your audio player? Panasonic's D-Snap is adaptable, playing MP3, AAC, and WMV files off any SD card, as well as letting you tune in to a built-in FM radio and any voice clips you record on it. Importers like Dynamism.com will ship units from Japan to eager U.S.-based customers. $239; www.panasonic.co.jp/global


Ofro Security Robot Reporting its findings in real time via GSM or Wi-Fi, this Teutonic security unit uses a 360-degree security sensor, GPS navigation, and an integrated thermal camera to detect unwanted visitors. A 12-hour battery and carbon-reinforced plastic shell should make the 143-pound robotic patroller an able addition to your security squad. $66,000; www.robowatch.de


Tulip E-Go Laptop This Dutch-designed portable comes in as many as eight different covers to match the rest of your outfit. While fashionistas may go for its looks, the specs should appeal to anyone: AMD's latest 64-bit Turion processor, a gigabyte of RAM, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Interchangeable faceplates will let style cognoscenti keep up with the latest designs after the Tulip goes on sale in October. $3,000; www.tulip-ego.nl -- MATTHEW MAIER
