This morning, Kenwood announced a new premium multimedia receiver for cars that is one of the first to support both Android Auto and Apple’s CarPlay. Kenwood noted in its press release for the DDX9902S that it understands that its customers have brand loyalty, so they wanted to make a product that works for both Android and Apple fans, rather than one that forced users to choose one over the other.

AT&T announced this morning that it plans to carry ZTE’s new SPro2, a product that has a handful of uses, but is classified as a smart projector with a touch screen that is powered by Android. No pricing or launch info was announced, but ZTE told us that it expects the device to hit store shelves of a “tier 1” carrier this quarter – that could be AT&T. (more…)
ZTE, the China-based manufacturer known for its budget phablets more than anything else, debuted an upgraded version of the Grand X Max it released last October. Appropriately dubbed the Grand X Max+, it’s a 6-inch, 1080p handset that will be exclusively available to new and existing Cricket Wireless customers. (more…)
Press day at CES is quickly coming to a close, but before we start shutting it down for the night, Sony needs to do their song and dance. They host an event up at the Las Vegas Convention Center, rather than at Mandalay Bay with the rest of the crowd, so Tim is on site, ready to see what’s up.
Earlier reports were suggesting that we may see a new Xperia phone or two, but Xperia Blog tried to warn everyone this morning to not expect much in terms of new phones.

Moving on from ASUS and I am here live at Qualcomm’s CES 2015 press event. I do not believe there is a live stream, nor do I know what is on the agenda, but it should be worth tuning in to. Qualcomm is the king right now, so when they speak about products or technology in general, we tend to listen.
Snapdragon 810 partners? A recap of 2014 and a look to 2015? Maybe something surprising? I guess we will find out.
I have a live blog below, which I will attempt to fill with commentary and images while riding solo.
The event starts at 12PM Pacific (3PM Eastern). Let’s do it! (more…)
ASUS is up next at the official press day of the 2015 CES. Well, they host their own satellite event, so it may not be an official event, yet it’s somehow included. Anyways, we will be there on hand, but it looks like they are planning to live stream the happenings, just like they did last year.
Will we get new Zenfones? What kind of camera tricks does ASUS have up their sleeves? Will any of it arrive in the US? I guess we will find out soon enough.
The event kicks off at 11AM Pacific (2PM Eastern). Once they post a live stream, we will add it below. (more…)
