External battery packs are great, except they're hindered only by how much capacity they come with. Exogear's Exovolt Plus is different — it's stackable — meaning you can pile on as many together and create a battery powerful enough to recharge even the biggest power guzzling gadgets.
With 7 million Galaxy Note smartphones under Samsung's belt, it's clear to the Korean electronics giant that consumers want larger displays. Rumor has it the successor to last year's "phablet" will rear its even larger screen next month.
The world's thinnest smartphone isn't made by Apple or Samsung. No, it's actually made by Chinese company Oppo. With a thickness of 6.65mm, nobody (believe me, nobody) was expecting it to double as a hammer. Watch as one guy pounds some nails into a wooden board with the Oppo Finder without so much as a dent.
Surprising everybody from left field, the Ouya slipped out last week claiming to be a new type of Android-based game console that would be cheap and encourage hacking. What we didn't know was that it would not be bringing next-gen graphics, but rather, mobile gaming to the living room. This post contains new information.
At the moment, you can buy two excellent tablets: the new iPad for $500 or the Nexus 7 for $200. The first has a 9.7-inch and the latter has a 7-inch display. Both are superb devices. Archos wants to disrupt that harmony with a 9.7-inch tablet that'll only cost $250.
Where did this come from? A new game console that's not built by Nintendo, Sony or Microsoft? You read that right. A new game console is entering the ring. Meet the Ouya.
Silicon Valley venture capitalists get a lot of credit for powering some of our greatest innovations, but increasingly the crowdfunding site Kickstarter is responsible for the most exciting new tech. The latest example is the Pocket TV, a dongle that gives your normal TV superpowers.
Google took the wraps off a lot of new hardware this week, but one thing it didn't show off was its Android Accessory Development Kit — an angular box that resembles an alarm clock you'd find in a modern art museum.
Along with the Nexus 7 tablet and the orb-shaped Nexus Q streaming media player, Google spent a huge chunk of its Google I/O conference talking about its next version of Android: 4.1 aka Jellybean.
Samsung's newest Android smartphone — the Galaxy S III — is launching on Verizon and T-Mobile tomorrow, June 21. (Demand has forced AT&T and Sprint to delay a week.) Stacked against last year's GSII, the GSIII has a larger screen, a faster processor, a whopping 2GB of RAM, a larger battery to keep it running all day long, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and 4G LTE on every carrier except T-Mobile. It's a beast. A smartphone with top-of-the-line specs is hardly a big deal. If the combination of hardware and software blow, who will honestly give a hoot about the Galaxy-whatever? It's a good thing Samsung is talking less about specs and more about the experience. And it starts with the GSIII's focal point: sharing.
