Vizio was founded eight years ago with the goal of undercutting prices and taking over the television industry. With their strategy of designing TVs in the US and manufacturing them in China, they quickly became the go-to brand for a cheap television. Since then, Vizio has risen from being a bargain basement brand to making [...]Read more
Meet the HP eStation Zeen. It’s a tablet. But not the fabled Windows 7 tablet– that’s a whole nother story.
No, according to early FCC filings, this tablet is supposedly running everybody’s favorite, Google Android–interestingly, not webOS (more on that in a sec).
The Zeen’s “hook” is that can plug into a printer and act as the printer’s controller [...]
Swype, a new technology that has emerged from the ashes that were T9 typing, looks very promising.
Swype makes touch-screen typing rather easy by using a seemingly advanced technology that we won’t get into. But essentially, using Swype allows you to simply drag your finger from one letter to the next without picking it up, removing [...]
If you aren’t familiar with Matias Duarte, that’s fine; he’s not exactly a household name. But, if you’re a Palm fanboy or you had the chance to catch Palm’s announcement of webOS at CES last year, chances are you’ve seen him before. Duarte, who was previously in charge of UI design for webOS, revealed webOS [...]Read more
Remember when Google announced the Nexus One (N1)? Do you recall that it was the fastest, most powerful Android phone available? Google fanboys exclaimed that it was “the first superphone ever!“ And then Google explained to the world that it would sell the phone exclusively online (http://www.google.com/phone)?
Well, in retrospect, it’s safe to say that the plan [...]
I’m a politicaholic, so I may be biased here, but I believe that I’ve found the single greatest app on the Droid: it’s called Congress.
Congress is a database of all the congresspeople working on the hill as well as newly introduced and passed bills. I am inclined to believe that we could all be [...]
It’s finally here! The Motorola Droid, Verizon Wireless’s flagship Android device, got the highly vaunted Android 2.1 update. Well, some phones at least. At noon today (March 30th), 1,000 people received a notification urging “the lucky ones” to download the update; it seems 9,000 more people will receive the notification by midnight tonight.
After those lucky [...]
If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past six months, odds are you’ve heard of the HTC Supersonic. And, if for some reason you have been living under a rock, the Supersonic is Sprint’s first 4G phone. It’s also the world’s first 4G phone. So, when Sprint officially announced the phone today, [...]Read more
We here at TechTrackr try to stay away from all the trivial news about the newest Android shenanigans, but this is a tremendous leap in the world of portable-computing. The wizards over at SK Telecom have been chanting jargon for the past couple of months and have produced this little monstrosity: a prototype SIM card [...]Read more
Although the folks at Opera’s chances of having their software released officially, via legal channels, are slim to none (unless we see some sort of Opera/Apple payoff), the company still announced a Press and Partner Preview for Opera Mini at the Mobile World Congress, with an iPhone debut nonetheless.
It’s pretty safe to say this is [...]
Ah, Google. They’re the tech company that isn’t evil. Of course, Steve Jobs disagrees with that, but that’s another story. However today Google has announced its plans to create a voice-to-voice translation service on their phone, the Nexus One (hint: TechTrackr Review?). To find the full scoop, read on past the breakage point.Read more
