CES 2012: XPAND Shows the Ultimate Industry Changing Shutter Glasses

Adam Shear

viagra sales>While 3D shutter glasses provide the only way to experience full 1080p HD 3D in the market, there is a huge problem between the manufacturers of shutter glasses. If you buy a 3D TV which uses shutter glasses, you usually are stuck buying glasses specific to the brand of your TV. If you have a Samsung TV and want to watch something on your friend’s Panasonic TV, you would need a different pair of glasses. Thankfully, the major players in the industry realized that this is not ok. During the Summer of 2011, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, and XPAND announced a collaboration called the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative. The goal of this collaboration was to create a standard for 3D shutter glasses so that eventually every pair would work with every TV. The glasses you see above are the XPAND YOUniversal 3D shutter glasses. They are the result of this collaboration and thanks to XPAND, I got to try out a pair.

CES 2012: Samsung Smart Interaction Proves to be the Television of the Future

Adam Shear

lowscriptaccess” value=”always” />

One thing that was expected this year at CES was a natural interface for televisions.  A natural interface simply means a way of control that is natural to everyone.  Using the body and voice are of course the most natural inputs we have.  Samsung showed off Smart Interaction which will make its debut later this year on two of Samsung’s LED TVs and one plasma TV as well.  Smart Interaction allows a person to interact with Samsung’s TVs through gesture, voice control, and facial recognition.  This technology may seem familiar for those who own Kinect for Xbox 360, but this is the first time is it being natively added to a TV set.  The video above explains and shows off the concept much better than I can.  LG also showed a TV at CES with similar functions.  Comment below if you think this natural way of control is the way of the future or if you have spotted me in the video (I’m in it for maybe two seconds).  And of course if you have any questions, feel free to also comment below and I will personally answer you (same goes for all our posts).

Review: Samsung Galaxy Nexus: Welcome to the Future of Android

Adam Shear

buy cheap cialis=”" width=”466″ height=”414″ />Over the last few years, Android, Google’s first attempt into the smartphone market, has become an incredibly huge success. Many people love it, however, I have had a few complaints about the OS over the last few years. Android, like Windows 98 or Windows XP, does not at all feel elegant. Its interface needed a bit of work in my opinion to catch up my personal favorite smartphone, the iPhone. Even Windows Phone 7 has a better interface in terms of flow and elegance. Google and Samsung are hoping the Galaxy Nexus, featuring the debut of Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich as its referred to, proves to introduce the future of Android inside a state of the art smartphone. Is it enough to make it the best Android phone on the market? Find out in my review.

Tarndeep

We heard about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0+ just a little while ago, in fact, our own Adam is writing the review on it, so stay tuned for that, but now, this baby comes packing with T-Mobile’s 4G (HSPA+) network! In case you don’t remember, the Galaxy Tab 7.0+  is one of the thinnest and lightest 7-inch tablets on the market, weighing at a mere 0.77 pounds! For $250 on a two-year contract, you can pick it up November 16th!

Move Outta The Way, Samsung. HTC Wants The King Of Android Phones Title Back, With The HTC Edge

Tarndeep

Thanks to Pocketnow.com, we’ve got some nice details on a new phone by HTC, HTC Edge. Apparently HTC Edge will be one of the first quad-core powered Android smartphones, with Nvidia’s AP30 Tegra 3 CPU, along with other internals making it a top of the line headset and a likely upgrade from HTC Rezound. The other supposed sepcs are, a 4.7-inch screen, with a 720p resolution, like Rezound, 1 GB of RAM,an internal storage increase to 32 GB, bluetooth 4.0, a backlit eight-megapixel camera with 28-millimeter f/2.2 lens, and all this allegedly slightly under 11 millimeters thick. What’s great about the AP30 Tegra 3 CPU, it’s clocked at 1.5 GHz – that’s 4 cores at 1.5 GHz each! Aside from the specs, I love how wide this phone is, as well as the recently announced Rezound. As a former Sensation user, as much as I loved the phone, I absolutely hate how narrow the phone was; it didn’t do my fatty fingers justice…

On the software end, we should see Beats audio, not to mention HTC’s latest version of HTC Sense UI, on top of Android 4.o, Ice Cream Sandwich. If for whatever reason this phone comes with Gingerbread, Android 2.3, we should see a quick upgrade to Android 4.0. According to pocketnow, “Edge may also see the rollout of new or improved HTC content services, such as the previously tipped HTC Listen music store, HTC Read bookstore, and HTC Play gaming hub; the HTC Watch movie portal will reportedly begin to offer HD fare.” Continue reading

Reminder: You Can Pick Up The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0+ Today!

Tarndeep

In case you don’t remember, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0+ is available today from Amazon! In case you don’t remember, Google had another 7 inch Tab that launched with Android 2.2 some time ago, but now, this 7-incher’s got it good! Running Android 3.2, honeycomb with Samsung’s TouchWiz UX user interface built on top, the Galaxy Tab 7.0+ has got an extra bit of polish than other tablets in its range. Some of the other notable specs include:

  • A 7-inch display with a great resolution of 1024 x 600
  • Dual cameras – 2 megapixel front facing camera and a 3 megapixel rear facing camera with LED flash, capable of 720p HD video capture!
  • A 1.2 GHZ dual-core Samsung Exynos processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Your choice of built in storage of 16 GB or 32 GB, expandable with a microSD card slot!
  • Peel Smart Remote – You have the built in infrared capabilities to turn your 7-inch tab into an overpriced, awesome, useful, universal remote!
It’s really not your run of the mill Android tablet, and the fact that it’s 7 inches and packing such power makes it attractive. Personally, I prefer something a little bigger, but there are many people that prefer tablets smaller than 9-10 inches, and I think this is something they can appreciate. Also, our very own Adam Shear will be reviewing this tablet, as well as the 7-inch HTC Flyer, so we should be able to see a greatly detailed comparison! Stay tuned!

AT&T’s Getting Some LTE Love With Headsets From Samsung And HTC – The Skyrocket & HTC Vivid

Tarndeep

Happy Monday! It looks like the day started with Samsung and HTC introducing two new devices for AT&T with LTE, and it’s about time AT&T got some LTE action. These aren’t just your average smartphones for AT&T, by the way. They actually have some pretty beastly offerings!

From Samsung we’ve got the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket – this struck me as strange on AT&T’s part. Why did they bother releasing a Samasung Galaxy S II with a screen a couple of inches smaller and no LTE, followed by this phone? I guess more options for customers is good, and I’m sure Samsung doesn’t mind, considering it means more sales for them!

The specs include:

  • 4.5-inch Super AMOLED+ display (800×480 pixels)
  • Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread)
  • A 1.5 GHZ dual-core Processor
  • An 8 – megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, as well as a 2-MP front-facing camera. 1080p video recording is possible with the rear-facing camera
  •  16 GB of on-board memory, microSD expandable to an additional 32 GB

You can pick up the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket in retail stores and online Nov. 6 for $249.99, with a two-year commitment.  

The HTC offering is also a behemoth:

  • 4.5-inch qHD display (540×960 pixels)
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core processor
  • Enhanced 8-megapixel camera with f2.2 28mm wide angle lens for low light photos
  • 1080p HD video recording at 60 frames per second, slow motion playback and on-device trimmer to optimize social media uploads and memory space
  • 16 GB of on-board memory, microSD expandable to an additional 32 GB

This will also be available Nov. 6, for $199.99 with a two-year commitment, at company owned AT&T retail stores and online!

I guess options are awesome. Continue reading
