This month we were sent the tiniest device we’ve seen in a long time. I opened the package that included several cases for our most recent HTC One (M8) case extravaganza, and in the box was the iFrogz Tadpole. What on earth does someone do with the world’s smallest Bluetooth speaker?
While there's no reason to believe that the newest keyboard device from Kanex wouldn't work with any and all Bluetooth 3.0-compatible devices, they've aimed directly at the Apple world here in the week of this accessory's launch. The Kanex Multi-Sync Keyboard works with the iPhone, iPad, iMac, and any other machine (with Bluetooth 3.0 or higher) you think would match up nicely. You've got a full Apple-esque design to the board as well as Bluetooth switching buttons - that means you can press one button for device A, then switch to device B or C with a press of one of your total of three buttons.
Ever find yourself in need of a tiny, wireless speaker? If you listen to media through the speakers on your laptop or smartphone, you probably have at one point or another, and Satechi has a product aimed directly at you. Today it announced that its new Swift Bluetooth Speaker is available, and its got a price that isn't going to break the bank if you're trying to rein in the spending.
The Bluetrek Carbon is the world's first Bluetooth 3.0 headset to be made from real carbon fiber. The choice of material along with an incredibly thin boom mic make the the Bluetrek Carbon feel almost weightless. The headset just passed through the FCC today signaling a launch coming soon.
Acer has outed a pair of notebooks using AMD's Fusion APU processors.

Samsung has just launched a brand new netbook and notebook over in India, after their official unveiling back in September. Samsung says that these new notebooks show their commitment to providing the best portability, performance, and an enhanced battery life, all the while putting it together in a nice package.
Elecom is on a roll with wireless gadgets lately, especially those that take advantage of Bluetooth connectivity. After yesterday's unveiling of their brand new Bluetooth wireless keyboard, featuring integrated left- and right-click mouse buttons and a trackball, this new wireless mouse seems to be the perfect addition. It's part of Elecom's M-BT6BL series, and if you like color options, the new mouse has them.
Samsung's Wave S8500 was a classic case of great hardware let down by mediocre software - in its case bada - and unfortunately we've no reason to assume its successor will be any different. The Samsung Wave II S8530 looks a whole lot like the original Wave but in fact has a bigger 3.7-inch Super LCD touchscreen rather than the S8500's 3.3-inch Super AMOLED panel.
We can't say we were overwhelmingly convinced with Samsung's bada smartphone OS back when we reviewed the Wave S8500, the handset's high-end specs doing most of the wowing, so we'll be interested to see how a more affordable model fares. Samsung has just outed the Wave 723 (GT-S7320E), apparently intended to further "democritize" the smartphone market, with a 3.2-inch WQVGA LCD display, 5-megapixel camera and dualband UMTS/HSPA.
Well, fancy that. Just after showing you a new Eee USB hard drive, we've got Asus showcasing a new, 10-inch netbook with the same branding. If you're looking for a new netbook, this new Eee PC model may be the next best choice, but then again, some of the features you'll find in this new model are pretty commonplace within the netbook market.
