The Android 2.1-based, HTC-produced widget has a 3.7-inch touchscreen, 512MB of RAM, a 4GB SD card expandable to 32GB and a five-megapixel camera.

CES 2013 Panel: Privacy and Security in the Cloud

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 is starting next week and cloud computing is on the agenda. You can be sure that a technology has moved out of the hype cycle and into everyday use when it shows up at a show like CES, known more for the latest TVs and phones than computing infrastructure.
