Sony's recently released two new handhelds. These show a new commitment from the company to offer wireless networking at lower prices. The company has also built cameras into these models.
The TH55 is the first Sony handheld with a hi-res+ screen that uses the traditional tablet design. Previous Sony models with 320-by-480-pixel screens have all been clamshells.
It comes with a new app called the Clie Organizer. This one application displays the contents of the Calendar, Address Book, To-Do list, and Memo Pad, and allows handwritten notes to be added to all these (see picture at left).
In tests performed by Brighthand, this model was able to last for about eight hours of typical use on a single charge, which is well above the performance of its competition.

The Clie TJ37 is just $300, making it significantly less expensive than other recently released Wi-Fi enabled handhelds.
Ed Hardy, Brighthand's Editor-in-Chief, said "this model offers a good mix of other features, including a built-in camera, making it a well-rounded device for its price range."
