There's a brand new little ultra-simple fabulously powerful speaker on the block, and it comes in one whole heck of a lot of different colors: SuperTooth's Disco 2, our hands-on experience with it right here before your eyes! This device is the next generation after the awesome original Disco we've already reviewed over a year ago, and the time is ripe for the second round to be a-launching!

Outdoor Technologies Turtle Shell bluetooth speaker hands-on

Outdoor Technologies Turtle Shell bluetooth speaker hands-on

There was a trailer full of goodies in the middle of a hall at CES 2012 with one gigantic gorilla man logo on the side, this being Outdoor Technologies, a group that's about to explode onto the scene with such gems as their waterproof cases for iPhone and this, their wireless boombox "Turtle Shell." This device is made for your hardcore activities such as biking, hiking, and camping as its both waterproof and fully mountable. Attach it to your bike, your rucksack, or even yourself!

CES 2012 Tablet Round-Up

CES 2012 Tablet Round-Up

This year's Consumer Electronics Show revealed itself to be the real Ice Cream Sandwich treat for tablets in the Android sector, with one whole load of crap tablets attempting to burst the bubble of the very few high-class units that were or will be soon certified by Google. On the Windows 8 side of things, there were certainly some tablets to be seen, but certainly not to be touched - Windows 8 will be ready later this year, but Microsoft wasn't having it when it came to showing it off fully here at the convention. Then there's oddities galore like the Samsung Galaxy Note, a device we'd seen late 2011, but until now had never had a chance to peek at it on a USA carrier - it's time!

Lenovo S2 hands-on

Lenovo S2 hands-on

A surprising amount of fabulous devices were shown this past week by Lenovo to the hordes of press looking to snap shots and take video of the latest and the greatest from the manufacturer as they ran Android for mobile and Windows for both mobile and laptop stations - what the Lenovo S2 represents is the Android world. What Lenovo's got here is another chance for you to take advantage of their unique user interface not unlike what we've also just seen on the world's first Android running an Intel Medfield chip, the Racer-A, aka the K800. This device here, the L2, represents a budget smartphone running that same Android user interface.

Acer Iconia Tab W500 hands-on shows the laptop tablet that wasn’t

Acer Iconia Tab W500 hands-on shows the laptop tablet that wasn’t

We've seen this device before, it having been on display early last year at Mobile World Congress 2011, but it being here at Pepcom during CES 2012 is more than a little telling for a device that was supposed to be a hit with Windows users throughout most of last year. When it comes to convertible tablets, your humble narrator's favorite device is the Transformer Prime, not least of all because it's able to fold down and be a laptop whenever you decide you want to transport it in such a way, not to mention the fact that it's got a fully functional trackpad to make it a high-class convertible in every aspect of the word - so why is it selling off the shelves while the Iconia Tab W500 remains one of the loneliest tablets in Acer's line of otherwise amazing hardware?

Telenav Scout GPS in-car display integration hands-on

Telenav Scout GPS in-car display integration hands-on

At Pepcom during CES 2012 we got the opportunity to hop into a vehicle containing a 7-inch display that would, when connected with Telenav's technology, be able to run all the navigation and service-finding awesomeness we've come to expect from the GPS navigation group. What we got to see what just that, an Android device not only mirroring itself to the display, but displaying a whole different interface made specifically for the 7-inch form factor, it showing maps, favorite places, traffic information, information about the current status of your car, and more. Have a peek as the demonstration speeds its way through downtown Las Vegas.

Toshiba MediaGuide hands-on

Toshiba MediaGuide hands-on

The big guns at Toshiba have decided to tie their mobile sector and their brand new smart TVs together with a push for full integration via an app by the name of Toshiba MediaGuide. This application allows you to control your cable box or satellite receiver of one of either of the Toshiba L6200 or L7200 Cinema Series Smart TVs, and can be run on essentially any Android device, including the one we're seeing here - the Toshiba Excite X10 10-inch tablet. We also got a slightly closer look at the Toshiba L7200 Cinema Series LES Smart 3D TV if you'd like to take a peek at that, this post concentrating on the application itself.

The Best of CES 2012

The Best of CES 2012

Welcome to our massive "best-of" wrap-up for CES 2012, complete with everything from smartphones to PCs and headphones and back, topped off with our own "most used gear" section for the curious. What you'll find is that though there were more exhibitors, attendees, and media attention payed to the show than ever before, the overall result was a lot of the same gear re-hashed with a few new specifications. Pay special close attention to the conclusion of this post for a bit of a whopper if you're a big fan of the largest show of the year here in the United States.

Skype for Windows Phone coming soon says Microsoft

Skype for Windows Phone coming soon says Microsoft

There's been a bit of a tip from no less that Microsoft's own VP of products, Rick Osterloh, on what may very well be coming soon for their Windows Phone mobile platform: Skype! There are a select few applications out there that are so important that the very fact that they're being released on a new system is newsworthy, and Skype is certainly one of them. Microsoft recently acquired Skype (this past October) and has not been vocal about if or when they'd be creating their own version for Windows Phone made to run like a whip for your video chats galore.

Skullcandy Mix Master over-ear headphones hands-on

Skullcandy Mix Master over-ear headphones hands-on

We decided to go on a bit of a headphones and tiny speakers spree in the last couple of days at CES 2012, ending up all over the place for sound quality and notoriety in the industry, finding such odd gems as this: The Mix Master over-ear headphones by Skullcandy. While you can pick these up in a shiny black version, we went straight for the wildest color scheme we could find, the specs the same no matter which colorway you decide on. These phones hold the special distinction of having Propriety Mylar Drivers approved by none other than Mix Master Mike himself.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note LTE in white hands-on

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note LTE in white hands-on

There's certainly no big amount of difference on the inside of this device when you compare it to the black version of the Galaxy Note, also coming to AT&T soon, but the obsession with the white chassis continues, and the white note looks so good, your humble narrator says, that it deserves its own separate hands-on. I say separate because we did get a hands-on earlier this week with the other color for this device, that being a lovely charcoal black front and back, but now it's time to get pearly with a white that accents not only the monster scale of this device, but it's USA-only set of four capacitive buttons below the display.
