The DEMO Fall conference lineup looks like one of the strongest I have seen in a long time for consumer technology, especially for hardware. Dash Navigation is bringing innovation to the portable navigation device segment while RingCube’s Mojopac is taking the “virtual PC on a flash drive” (they actually favor hard drives) segment beyond what we’ve seen from U3, Ceedo and Migo. I can’t wait to see the Headplay display. Mvox brings the Bluetooth headset even more independence. Presto is looking to do for photo printing what Ceiva has tried for photo display, although the company really needs a smaller 4″ X 6″ printer offering. Even nComputing has a long-term consumer play.
JaJah, Pinger and GrandCentral are debuting some interesting voice applications (ah, so that’s what you can use a cell phone for?), the latter has the potential to be the first mass-market “universal messaging” service. And Scrapblog and Cozi are targeting the memory and appointment keepers.
