This pseudo-slate is the traveler's best friend.
The iLuv i1166 was originally bound to launch months ago, but delays have kept it off the market until now. Thankfully, it's just as hot today as it was when it won the Best of Innovation Award in CES 2009. (Gearlog) You can buy one right now for $299.99.
The iLuv looks like a slate, but its form is rather deceiving. It has an 8.9" TFT LCD display, but it breaks open to reveal an iPhone/iPod dock connector and a DVD player. It has USB slots and SD card slots on the side, and two stereo headphone jacks for long airplane rides with a friend. There's even a remote control and a rear kickstand, for additional convenience.
This nifty travel gadget can charge via AC or car adapter and also packs a battery for those times when you can't plug in. It supports all these formats; CD / VCD / SVCD / DVD / CD-R / CD-RW / DVD±R / DVD±RW / DivX / MP3 / WMA / JPEG.
