A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone maker, and headlong into the world of accessories. Is the Re, which draws comparisons to devices like a GoPro, worthy of your attention, or is it another strange device we’ll soon forget? A review should answer that question nicely.
If you've had your fill of that sumptuous Thanksgiving dinner, it's probably time to kick back and relax with your favorite digital partner. But even your smartphone or your tablet deserves a bit of thanks this season, and what better way to do that than by splurging on some accessories for your faithful companion. To help you pick them out, here are some appetizing Black Friday deals at highly discounted prices. And to send you off with a bang, Android Community is offering a 10 percent off coupon on top of it all!
Smartwatches have become the accessory du jour for gadget fans the past few years or so. But one criticism (well, if you're the fashionable type at least) about the wearable is that the variant designs are limited and you get stuck with the same watch strap once you buy your smartwatch. Moto 360 is now offering separate watch bands that will give you a bit of limited variety for your smartwatch.
Smartphones have so many functions and features, but at times, it can be a bit too complicated, especially if you're in a hurry. Don't you just wish you had just one button to make your gadget do whatever you want? Well now there's a new product trying to get crowd-funded which will help you do just that. The Flic wireless smart button lets you program several tasks that it can do with just the push of a button, without holding your smartphone.
Especially if you live in a big, bustling city, silence nowadays is a luxury that we seldom get to enjoy. Yes, you can plug in to your earphones or headphones, but after a while, it gets uncomfortable on your ears or you may miss something important. A new device called Hush may just be the very first smart earplug that is easy on the ears and also useful other than keeping the noise out.
If you're the type of person who doesn't want to constantly check your mobile phone and yet you're expecting important phone calls, you would need a device that will let you know if that call is coming through, even with your phone a little farther away. Or if you're someone who always seems to forget his/her mobile device, you would need something to remind you when you've done so. A Kickcstarter project is aiming to bring that product to you in one tiny package with Ditto.
While headphones serve their purpose when you want to drown out the annoying people around you or you just want to go off into your own musical world alone, there are some things lost by plugging into one and plugging out of your environment. One of these things lost is sharing music with friends and loved ones. A new headset trying to get crowdfunded wants to bring that social aspect back to music listening, even as you will have your own device on your head and in your ears.
It's already been established that if you're a serious mobile device user, it is necessary for you to have a power pack with you always. But out of all the brands out there, why should you choose to buy or invest in Reeljuice? If you keep losing or forgetting your cords and adapters, then this is the one for you.
Back in the day (well, just a few years ago actually), in order to make a decent recording of you playing your instrument or singing, you needed to go to a recording studio or have high-tech (and expensive) recording equipment at your house. But of course, now there are apps and gadgets for that and all you would need is an instrument, a plug, an Android device and of course there's also an app for that.
Aside from the sound quality and the design, what else do you want from speakers that can be connected to your mobile devices? Probably two of the top answers would be portability and battery life. A crowd-funded portable Bluetooth speaker is trying to be the answer to your mobile needs. The Hydrogen speaker may not have the longest battery life among its competitors right now, but it may be the only one that can recharge itself quicker than you can heat up your pasta in your microwave.
