Oh Leica, what do you take us for? First, you re-branded a Panasonic LX5 and sold it as the “D-Lux 5” with an inflated price tag. Now, you’re releasing the aging ten megapixel, 1/1.63-inch (read: small) CCD shooter yet again, but this time with an anodized titanium coating and an apparently unmentionable rrp. The $26,500 M9 Titanium at least had a full frame sensor, but this latest release proves that your corrosion-resistant dimorphic allotropes are only skin-deep.

Wu and Kong are the latest additions to a pantheon of robot athletes. Sure, their eye-mounted motion-tracking cameras may not make for the most emotive games you’ll ever see, but we can’t help but be impressed by all those precision shots. The robot twins were developed at China’s Zhejiang University and, we’ll admit, compared to getting hustled at pool or being struck out by a baseball robot, there’s something a bit friendlier about a game of table tennis with our future oppressors. You can marvel at the duo’s bionic backspin in action after the break. We’re massive Wu fans.

The Bluetooth 4.0 specification may have been finalized in July of last year, but smartphones supporting the standard are just starting to hit the market. In fact, the first such handset is the iPhone 4S. That the 4S is the first to deliver its 4.0 wares to the American public is something that got lost in all the hubbub surrounding its launch. One of the biggest selling points of the latest version of the PAN standard is its low-power mode, though that wont have much of an impact on Apple’s device. What it will enable the latest iGadget to do however, is act as a hub — collecting data from multiple sensors and accessories simultaneously, such as heart rate monitors and cats. Don’t expect this to be alone on the market for long, other manufacturers will certainly be squeezing support for the specification into their next flagship device.

We’re gathering at the San Diego Convention Center to attend the fall edition of CTIA Wireless, also known as CTIA Wireless Enterprise & Applications 2011. Sure, the name’s a mouthful, but we can’t wait to check out the show floor and get a handful of the latest and greatest gadgets. The biggest news so far is what won’t be shown off at this week’s event, but we’re certain this shindig’s got plenty more to take our attention away from good ol’ Nexus whats-his-face. So be sure to follow Engadget’s CTIA 2011 tag to get all the action!

Attracted by all that Cedar Trail gossip about 10-hour battery life and weeks of standby time? Then you’ll be pleased to see that Asus’s Eee PC 1025C and higher-end 1025CE models have received their nods from the FCC. Both pack the latest 32nm Atom processor under their 10.1-inch hoods, along with an HDMI-out, Kensington lock and flush trackpad. The CE additionally serves up a USB 3.0 port, 4x zoom on its webcam and a metallic finish. NetbookNews got some hands-on time with these babies at Computex and reported prices of $249 and $279 for the C and CE respectively — whet your appetite at the More Coverage link.

It’s easy to shrug off technical achievements like this while real-world data speeds still lag so far behind. Nevertheless, the adrenalin junkies at Nokia Siemens Services insist their latest HSPA+ platform will be commercially available to carriers by the end of next year and, to prove it actually works, they’ve been demoing at PT Expo Comm in Beijing. The technology uses the latest 3GPP standardization to hog eight 42Mbps frequency channels at the same time, delivering a peak throughput of 336Mbps. Sure, it doesn’t come close to the 1Gbps speeds we’ve seen from Ericsson with LTE-Advanced, but if it gets here first we’ll have it.

If online video streams and locally stored media aren’t providing enough functionality for your Boxee Box, now you can watch regular TV on it too. The Digital Lifestyle mentions DVBLogic has released a new version of its DVBLink client for the device that lets you browse the program guide and watch live TV, provided you also have a home server set up with its software and a tuner. If you’re not familiar with the software, it lets you turn most any UPnP-compatible device into an extender capable of caching live streams, with clients available for iPad / iPhone already, plus Android and WP7 on the way. You’ll need the latest release candidate version of DVBLink Connect! server software to make it all go, then point your Boxee Box browser to the company’s repository to download the client software and let us know how it all works out.

What can you get for $300 these days? A bunch of stuff, probably, including the latest soundbar from Yamaha. The YAS-101 Front Surround System offers up 7.1 sound, a built-on 60-watt subwoofer and support for Dolby Digital and DTS. The UniVolume feature, meanwhile, helps maintain a constant level through loud volume increases during commercials. IR codes can also be sent through the speaker bar, so you don’t have to worry about it blocking the set. Check out some press info after the break.
