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.

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.

LG Android VMware Horizon Mobile hands-on

LG Android VMware Horizon Mobile hands-on

One of the official CES 2012 awards this year, a Design & Engineering Showcase Award to be exact, was awarded to LG Electronics for their groundbreaking implementation of a bit of software by the name of VMware Horizon Mobile. This VMware invention has been around for a few months now, but has never been shown off in a fully functional manner like this, here with LG on their Verizon Mobile 4G LTE LG Revolution device. What it represents is an ability that you, the business person, has to create a sandboxed version of Android running on your device so that you can have added security and perfect version compatibility - that make sense to you? Have a peek at our hands-on video for more insight.

Toshiba L7200 Cinema Series LED Smart 3D TV hands-on

Toshiba L7200 Cinema Series LED Smart 3D TV hands-on

There were no shortage of Smart TV concepts and final executions this year at CES 2012, and Toshiba came packing one of the most awesome selections to the Pepcom event in the L7200 Cinema Series LED Smart 3D TV, one massive customer. This television includes passive 3D, on-board cable program guide, and all the bells and whistles you'd hope any modern Smart TV would hold. And with such a tiny bezel around this display that'll be offered in two sizes this spring, 47-55 inches never looked so gigantic - or if it did, it looks bigger than ever now!

CES 2012 comes to a close as SlashGear exits Las Vegas

CES 2012 comes to a close as SlashGear exits Las Vegas

We've had one whole heck of a lot of fun this past week at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, but all good things must come to a close, and so too must we exit Las Vegas Nevada. What we've seen has been wrapped up a bit by Chris Davies in a set of posts listed later in this post, but we've got plenty of content left to go - stacks of hands-on video and photos of oddities, hidden treasures, and items that require just a bit more in-depth processing than your average feature from across the show floor for you to peek at throughout the weekend. That said, we'd like to thank everyone at CES for all your hard work and for making such an event of massive size take place for the pleasure of us and our readers.

Intel sticks with Netbooks, touts full package mobile proposition

Intel sticks with Netbooks, touts full package mobile proposition

At our meeting this week with Intel's Mark Miller and John Wallace, we spoke primarily about mobile, and as the conversation moved beyond smartphones and tablets and laptops came up, it was the word Netbook that got our attention. What Miller had to say about the Netbook as it stands today is not that it's time to be done with that classification of device even though more powerful mobile devices are on the rise. Instead the task, he said, was to show consumers what the difference between the types of devices are so that they can make an informed decision.

Intel dedicates itself a more diverse mobile future

Intel dedicates itself a more diverse mobile future

Late in the week on the fourth full day of CES 2012, we got the opportunity to sit down with Intel's Mark Miller to speak about Medfield, Clover Trail, and the future of mobile computing in the Intel environment. What Intel intends on bringing to the market is not just powerful devices such as tablets, but these devices with elements of differentiation in the silicon itself rather than in the device's specifications. With both Medfield and Clover Trail in the works for Android and Windows 8, Intel is aiming to take on the mobile world with a vengeance.
