Casio’s Bluetooth 4.0 smartwatch plans are nearing fruition, with the first pairing of a low-power wireless watch and Android smartphone headed to Japan’s NTT DoCoMo in the next few days. The NEXT MEDIA PP N-01D offers the usual Japanese niceties, like a 4-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, wireless charging, 8.1-megapixel camera, along with water and dust resilience, but [...]
There is no official announcement yet from Samsung and yet images of the supposedly upcoming Gear IconX Bluetooth earbuds and Gear Fit 2 have been floating around some of the usual suspects. But what was surprising (or maybe not really) is that Samsung’s own website, specifically the S Health site, actually had the images up there as well.
As it was with the original Samsung Galaxy Note and every Galaxy Note thereafter, the Galaxy S7 will inform the next big-time S Pen-toting device. The smaller device will inform the looks and the feel of the larger device, and many features will be brought over to the future model as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is the most hotly-anticipated Android smartphone of 2016, so the good news is that it's pretty damn good. Announced today at Samsung's latest Unpacked event in Barcelona, Spain, the S7 - and its Galaxy S7 edge sibling, with a bigger screen and curved edges - pick up the torch from earlier Galaxy flagships and gives them a shove in the direction of the South Korean firm's.
It would appear that Samsung's schedule for releasing Galaxy phones will once again match up - sort of - with Apple's iPhone. Not just because both devices generally appear ready for the market at around the same time of the year - Autumn. Also because Apple is said to be seeking out OLED panels this time around - at least for a phone with a 5.
Summer is my favorite season of the year. Days are the longest and nights are the shortest. It’s the time we get to spend outdoors under the sun with friends at BBQ’s, camping trips, backpacking adventures, road trips and international excursions.
Vaio has made its intention to unveil a new Windows 10 powered smartphone in the next few days official. The announcement will come on February 4, only two days from now. The new smartphone will be unveiled at an event hosted by Vaio president Ota Yoshimi and Microsoft's Japanese president. NTT DoCoMo managing director Takagi Kazuhiro will also be on hand at the event.
Back in 2011, I reviewed the then new Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Speaker/Dock . It was—and still is—an incredible speaker that blows away most wireless speakers. After the review, my wife “helped herself” to it, so it now sits on top of her piano facing the kitchen where she can use Apple Airplay to stream her favorite music.
It's just a few months now before the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 ends up being revealed by the company, just in time to battle the next iPhone. Just as it was the past several years with release timing, it shall be again - we have no indication at this time to the contrary. But what has been and was stopped may end up being brought back - more than one Samsung Galaxy Note in a year. Blasphemous? Maybe.
As the years have passed the demand for wireless headphones have increased. People are sick of having a cord attached to their headphones. Either they are too long or too short. They also get tangled up, not only when you put them away, but also when you’re doing different activities. Whether you’re working out or just sitting around, not having the wire is what people really want.
Father’s Day is just two weeks away, which means it is time to get a gift for your dad. My dad has just about everything he needs, and Father’s Day is a great way for me to thank him for raising me to be the best person I can be. He worked M-F?from 8-5pm, and was home every night to help me with homework, play catch, coach me in Little League and soccer, and to ask me how I was doing.
The folks at HP responsible for reinventing computing have created a device by the name of HP Elite x3. This device is a Windows 10 mobile device - a smartphone - that works with Continuum. That means it's able to plug in to a dock and act as a desktop machine.
How many remotes do you use for your TV and other home theater devices? I am currently using three. I have a remote for my DirecTV, one for my A/V receiver and one for my Roku. In the early days of PDAs and smartphones, most devices included a built-in IR transmitter so the device could double as a universal remote to control your TV and other IR enabled equipment.

What is it with strange looking bluetooth speakers? Earlier this year I had a chance to listen to the hole-in-the-middle Fluance Fi70 . This time, we’re going to look at the distinctively angular Nyne Rebel splashproof portable Bluetooth speaker. If you’re not familiar with Nyne, we’ve had a chance to review other speakers, such as the Aqua , the Bass , and the NB-200 .
Just last week, Google released version 1.4 of Android Wear , which brought in support for speakers as well as new wrist gestures. That, however, was a feature set already pre-figured and even pre-announced. Now that that's out of the way, the next step in the Android Wear evolution would be to bring Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the table.
