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.

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.

Mimobot Mimomicro USB microSD card reader hands-on

There's one whole heck of a lot of devices here at CES 2012 that cost a major amount of cash, but if there's one company that can bring the smallest and least expensive item to the show and still make a splash. This Mimobot's brand new Mimomicro USB microSD card reader, complete with officially licensed Star Wars characters making up the bulk of their design.

Toshiba Thrive 7-inch hands-on

This week we've got the opportunity to take a peek at Toshiba's second Thrive tablet, this one a 7-inch device with many of the same specifications as its 10-inch relative. It's got the same rubbery ridged back and no less than a 5 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel camera to keep you video chatting and snapping pics galore. This device is set to be not necessarily the next generation device for Toshiba but a companion release for the 10-inch version that came out last year.

Dropcam HD hands-on

Dropcam HD hands-on

There's a camera out there today, folks, a camera by the name of Dropcam HD - one that when we got a hands-on look at, we were flabbergasted at the awesomeness and simplicity of as not only is it able to monitor your home environment in a completely non-intrusive way, it's all quite inexpensive. This device is the "easiest way to check in on what you care about" as they say, and is able to work with you to bring the video and images it captures to you need in a rather sleek form factor as well. The whole thing also works in pitch dark and is able to pick up 720p HD video for superior quality viewing.

Canon PowerShot Digital ELPH 520HS crams in 12x zoom

Canon PowerShot Digital ELPH 520HS crams in 12x zoom

Canon's newest ELPH is tiny. Seriously tiny. While not as quite slim as some of its former models, the PowerShot Digital ELPH 520 HS has an overall volume that's impressively tiny for its specs. A 10.1 megapixel sensor should allow most users to get as many pixels as they like, and a 12x-rated optical zoom will let them get in close to capture them. The whole camera is just a little thicker than and deck of cards, and much shorter and more narrow.

Lenovo A7 does touchscreen all-in-one in style

It's hard for an all-in-one computer to catch our eyes these days, but Lenovo's new A7 unit managed that and then some. At first sight it looks just like a rather large all-in one, until you see the unit bend down to imitate a podium. Then you realize that the computer supports ten-point capacitive touch input on Windows 7, not to mention a considerable laundry list of media features.

Motorola Droid 4 Hands-on

Motorola Droid 4 Hands-on

The folks at Motorola have finally come clean with the next in line DROID device for Verizon's 4G LTE network, this a qwerty keyboard slider running Motorola's own user interface over Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and having the same capabilities, to a point, that the RAZR has: this is the Droid 4. What we've got going here is a rather tough (or solid, however you look at it,) slider with a backlit set of keys, a dual-core 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, and they've put it on paper that it'll be running Ice Cream Sandwich in the near future.
