The Moto Hint, Motorola’s discreet little Bluetooth nub, has finally arrived for us to take for a full spin. After getting to check out the Bluetooth earbud during the press festivities for the Moto X (2nd gen) launch, we have been dying to get a real unit in house for real testing on our own. That time has come. (more…)
For a limited time, folks who have been itching for a more portable data solution can pre-order the upcoming Karma Go LTE hotspot. Set to be priced at $150, but available for $99 through a pre-order promotion, Karma Go allows users to pay for the data they use, sort of like a pay-as-you-go hotspot plan.
Users pay a set price per GB of data they consume, with the hotspot itself feeding off an available LTE connection in the area. Should LTE not be available at the moment, the system falls back to a 3G CDMA connection. For a more detailed look at where connectivity is offered, please see here. (more…)
Next week, at a press event in NYC, HTC is going to announce the REcamera, a GoPro like camera companion for your smartphone that is waterproof and will probably be sold as the ultimate selfie machine, because companies are still clinging to the selfie craze. Don’t believe me? Just look at the official images pulled from the REcamera’s official launch website.
The device, as is typically the case before any product gets announced, stopped by the FCC this week. As you can see in the image above, we have a tube-shaped device with FCC labeling on the bottom. The tube-shaped design matches up exactly to the official images we have already seen that show off a camera built from submarine parts (OK, I made that last part up). (more…)
LG smartwatch! With Verizon 3G! At the FCC! Unannounced! What does LG have up their sleeves?! G Watch R variant with connectivity?! Something we have never seen before!? Oh. My. God. That’s been the reaction this morning across the interwebs as an unannounced LG smartwatch (LG-VC100) with Verizon 3G connectivity popped up at the FCC. Thing is, it’s just the KizON kid tracker that LG unveiled back in July. (more…)
Within the last year, I switched to wireless Bluetooth earbuds for workouts and can tell you that I will never go back to wired. There is a freedom you get when no wires are attached to your phone and you need to move, whether that be in a workout capacity or just traveling from one place to another. The problem with wireless Bluetooth earbuds is that most aren’t cheap. I currently use Jaybird Bluebuds X, which carry a price well over $100. They are great, but if you don’t feel like forking out that kind of cash for a set of buds that you may only use in certain situations, but still want to test the Bluetooth earbuds water, think about the current deal we have running in the DL Deals shop.
You can pick-up the Feather Buds for $24.99. They have a “noise canceling outer shell,” are tangle-free, and feature “crystal clear” sound at a range of up to 30 feet. They also have a built-in microphone, so you can take calls at any time.
Again, if you want to see if Bluetooth earbuds are for you, this isn’t a bad option to consider at that price.
Miracast never really caught on; the standard seems to have lost what little ground it had to simpler solutions, like Chromecast mirroring, but it has its niche in environments with flaky Wi-Fi connections and programs which require low latency. The only problem? Finding an inexpensive, reliable receiver. Luckily for those in the market, Microsoft unveiled an option today. (more…)
Battery life is not exactly a strong suit of smartwatches currently on the market. Their limited power capacity can be especially problematic if you find yourself away from a charger for more than a day or longer. While devices with longer-lasting battery tech will take a bit more R&D, Samsung has developed a solution in the interim – the Power Sharing cable. (more…)
