Samsung Smart TV live streaming to Galaxy Tab hands-on [Video]

Samsung may have had 3D video-on-demand to announce at IFA 2011 this morning, but the company was also demonstrating its smart TV streaming system that can squirt a live video feed from a D7000 or D8000 series HDTV to one of the company's Android-based devices. We grabbed some hands-on time to see whether this is the setup to retire your SlingBox for; check out the video demo and more after the cut.

TerraTec NOXON iRadio 500 hands-on

TerraTec have plowed away at the internet radio segment, and their new NOXON iRadio 500 is a slick example of the breed.  A €299 ($386) standalone model, with both WiFi and a wired network option, the iRadio 500 has a 2.1 speaker system, large 3.8-inch color display and straightforward controls.  As well as playing internet radio, it can also stream locally-stored music across your network from a computer or NAS.

E-Noa Interpad Tegra 2 tablet hands-on

E-Noa Interpad Tegra 2 tablet hands-on

E-Noa's Tegra 2 based Interpad was one of those tablets we harboured quiet doubts over back in July, uncertain whether the company could beat big-name rivals to the market with their Android 2.2 slate.  Having met the company at IFA 2010 this week, though, it seems they're well on their way to making some sales.  The Interpad isn't quite ready - E-Noa are apparently still working on a custom UI that will suit the 10-inch 1024 x 600 multitouch display - but it was certainly functional enough.

Sleek Audio SA7 and SA6-R “ears-on”

Sleek Audio SA7 and SA6-R “ears-on”

We're big Sleek Audio fans here at SlashGear, and we've known the company has been cooking up something special for the past six months or so.  That project - the new flagship Sleek Audio SA7 in-ear monitors - has come of age just in time for IFA 2010, along with their upcoming refresh of the original SA6's, in the shape of the SA6-R (where the "R" stands for "Reference").  We jammed the carbon-fiber and machined aluminum SA7's into our ears for a preview.

Huawei Ideos U8150, S7 tablet & Hx concept hands-on [Video]

Huawei are another company going in for Android in a big way, already behind several of the operator-branded budget smartphones on the market and hoping to follow up that success with the new Ideos U8150, a Froyo 2.2 smartphone with what's tipped to be a roughly $150 unsubsidized price tag.  As well as playing with the U8150 at IFA 2010 today, we also grabbed a fleeting moment with the Ideos S7 tablet and a (non-functional) Huawei prototype for their idea of a potential gaming MID.

Archos 70 and Archos 101 hands-on [Video]

Archos 70 and Archos 101 hands-on [Video]

Archos weren't short of new internet tablets for IFA 2010, though it's their Archos 70 and Archos 101 which stood out when we stopped by their booth earlier today.  Measuring in at 7- and 10-inches respectively, the two Android slates (running 2.1 right now, but set to launch with 2.2 Froyo) are certainly thin and reasonable feature-packed, each toting a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics accelerator and WiFi b/g/n.

ViewSonic ViewPad 100 dual-boot Android/Win7 slate hands-on

ViewSonic ViewPad 100 dual-boot Android/Win7 slate hands-on

ViewSonic's second tablet is more of a work-in-progress than the ViewPad 7, with the ViewPad 100 being a 10-inch dual-booting Android/Windows 7 tablet that's still undergoing plenty of finessing. With a 1024 x 600 two-point multitouch capacitive touchscreen, Atom N455 processor and 1GB of DDR3 memory, it makes for a reasonable netbook replacement (as long as you don't mind losing the hardware keyboard) but, thanks to the presence of Android, also doubles as a quick-loading multimedia player and general entertainment slate.

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 hands-on [Video]

With a sub-£350 price tag for a 7-inch Android 2.2 Froyo tablet, with 3G voice and data, a capacitive touchscreen and digital camera, we were wondering where the catch was with the ViewSonic ViewPad 7. Having used the compact slate at IFA 2010 this morning, we're still left searching for the compromise: on the face of it, you're getting much of what Samsung is delivering with the Galaxy Tab, only at (perhaps) half the price.

Sound Freaq SFQ01 hands-on

Sound Freaq SFQ01 hands-on

Is there still room for more iPod speaker docks?  New company Sound Freaq reckon so, and their SFQ01 is an attempt to take a slice of the lucrative market.  Designed with - as they themselves said - love-it or hate-it aesthetics, the slab-sided dock system promises above-average sound quality thanks to the company's own UQ DSP system.  Meanwhile, a companion iPad app allows for straightforward remote control, together with streaming from the Apple slate itself.
