The Chumby is one of those gadgets that won't fill any gaps in your tech life but does a great job of delivering a combination of useful information, time-wasting fodder and entertainment in a small, portable leather-clad device. And we've got a hands-on video so you can check it out.

It's not immediately obvious what the Chumby is based on its name alone so we'll fill you in. It's a widget friendly device that clings on to the net via Wifi to pull content to your Chumby in widget form, complete with a built-in speaker for podcasts and internet radio, among other things. So think of it as a touchscreen portal to your favourite bits of the internet.

The only things you can't do is the boring stuff. In our hands-on video we take you through its features and show you what this padded widget-packed gizmo is capable of.

Make sure you let us know what you think below. Is it just a glorified alarm clock or a lot more than that?
