Scratching your head about AT&T’s Home Manager thingee?  In short, it’s a Samsung touchscreen device, that gives you the basics: recipes, weather, scores, movie times and reviews, news, email, and voicemail.  AT&T’s demo video is branding it ideal for the kitchen, which is one room PC makers haven’t heavily pushed.  If it weren’t for the voicemail integration, it’d be just yet another, albeit cheap, tablet device without a complete web browser.  The Home Manager is complimented by a smaller handset, and it’s 7-inch 800×480 screen can double as an LCD photo frame with 256MB of internal storage, expandable via SD card.  Calendar and cell phone address books will sync with the device and AT&T phone and cable service looks to be required.

Available now for $299 in select cities.
