Published 06/19/2012

(Portland, Oregon) – Now that it's summer, numerous companies have released some new items useful to those indulging in the travel season. Going abroad or just wandering the U.S. means more than sunscreen and beachwear. (Above: Portland)

Here's a sampling:

Sony Bloggie Live™ HD camera ($249.99) – From a beautiful day at the beach to the backyard barbeque, make sure to capture your vacation memories with this Wi-Fi enabled camera. And with Qik video from Skype embedded in the device, users can seamlessly create, share and store videos with friends and family on their social networks, through email or text, or on blogs and web sites.

PlayStation® Vita ($239.99 - $286.62) – In preparation for beach traffic, pack the PlayStation Vita to keep the kids engaged during the long car ride. Even more, with Skype for PS Vita, your family can now use the gaming device to stay in touch with loved ones with free Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls.

Skype mobile (free) – Skype for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone and more allow travelers to stay in touch with free Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls while on-the-go. By downloading Skype mobile for free, there is no excuse not to share your summer kickoff experiences in real-time with others.
