It can be quite a challenge keeping up-to-date with every new product that’s launched, so to make life a bit easier we’ve gathered up some of this month’s hottest releases.

Gamers will do well this month. Exspect unveiled its new high-tech Drop ‘n’ Charge power modules (pictured), which use radio frequency wireless technology to charge. The user replaces standard batteries with a charge pack, and the Drop ‘n’ Charge pad beams power to it, without having to remove it from the device, perfect for battery-hungry peripherals.

Roccat, meanwhile, has two new products designed specifically for gaming. The Sota mouse pad has a granular surface to reduce the contact between the pad and the mouse, and the Kova gaming mouse uses optical sensor technology which allows users to adjust the resolution from 400 to 3200 dpi.

Acer is tapping into the lucrative smartphone market with its new Liquid series. The device is the first high definition phone to run Google’s Android operating system, and is also the first to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

The latest addition to HANNspree’s ST range of high definition TVs features the firm’s ‘X-Contrast’ and ‘X-Celerate’ technologies, which apparently sharpen images and eliminate motion blur. The 32-inch ST321 joins the 25-inch ST251 and 28-inch ST281, which were launched earlier this year.

Netgear’s new RangeMax Router offers wireless-N connectivity with GB ethernet ports and ReadyShare USB storage access. It has also been designed to serve as a high-performance Linux platform and includes support for a range of open source firmware.

Tablet manufacturer Wacom has brought out the second generation Bamboo, supposedly the first interactive tablet to combine multi-touch functionality with pen tablet technology. Clearly, the product was timed to closely follow the release of Windows 7, which is Microsoft’s first multi-touch capable operating system.

Looking at the Christmas market, EuroTech has started stocking a range of PC peripherals featuring Disney characters. The optical mice, mouse pads, speakers, webcams, keyboards and laptop skins star classic characters such as Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh, as well as more modern kids’ sensations Hannah Montana and High School Musical.
