CES 2015 brought us two pretty cool things in webOS for LG TVs and Sling TV. Sling TV is a cord cutter’s dream come true. Rather than having to sign up for a cable subscription, Sling TV users can sign up for packages of TV content that streams to them via the Internet. If you’re taking a hard look at an LG TV with webOS (or maybe already have one), we’ve got good news.
In October 2014, word surfaced that LG would be making a smartwatch running webOS, something that came to light when a developer page referencing a "webOS SmartWatch" and "webOS Wear" briefly appeared online.
Audi showed off a lot of smart automotive plans at CES 2015 , but the subset of Audi fans and Android users were probably more enchanted by the car maker's smartwatch venture . Unfortunately, there has been some confusion on whether the company is planning to bank on Android Wear as initially presumed or on LG 's webOS smartwatch venture, which was rumored a few months back .
CES day four (technically day 3, but we’re counting Monday’s pre-event as a day anyway) brought a lot of fun little gadgets and toys. There was more VR, some point-and-shoot cameras, and even a printer that’s not a printer. More Internet of Things stuff was announced, and in case you weren’t sure, SD cards are NFC-capable, now.
Audi briefly,ever so briefly, brandished a not-before-seen smartwatch at its CES event, showcasing some wearable-car connectivity that it's working on. And while that's pretty cool in itself, the watch used to show it off looked pretty darn classy, with stainless steel construction, a substantial crown and another pair of buttons flanking it.
After making a big entrance last year with TVs, LG is back at it this year at CES, too. While introducing seven new OLED TVs, LG is also announcing some new content partnerships for their WebOS TV software.
Palm was the company behind some of the original PDAs that some fans of the iPhone and Android devices today cut their teeth on. Palm was unable to compete when the smartphone boom started in earnest and eventually went out of business with the name and patents belonging to several companies before winding up with HP.
Prepare to be transported back to 2005. Chinese electronics maker TCL (which sells smartphones around the world as Alcatel OneTouch) announced earlier today that it's reviving the venerated Palm brand in the form of a new US subsidiary. That's right, folks: It might not be long until you've got a shiny new Palm smartphone in your pocket.
While we await Samsung 's first Tizen -powered smartphone, perhaps more out of curiosity than excitement, the Korean OEM is pushing with its Tizen thrust on another, less risky product line. The company has announced that its whole roster of Smart TVs for 2015 will be running the open source platform that was designed from the ground up for mobile and embedded devices.
