Sony BRAVIA X and A series bring 4K HDR, Android TV together

Android TV, just like Android Wear, isn’t dead yet. At least not if you judge it based on the devices and announcements made at CES 2017. First there was DISH’s AirTV box, powered by Android TV.

Yes, Google Assistant is coming to TVs, but only if you have a recent Android TV box or TV. Good thing, then, that there are lots of those to go around at CES 2017.

ODG AR smart glasses hands-on: Snapdragon 835 gets real

The first Snapdragon 835 device isn't a phone, and it isn't a tablet: it's a set of augmented reality glasses. Two sets of glasses, to be precise, the handiwork of ODG - or Osterhout Design Group - flush with a recent $58m cash injection from 21st Century Fox who have been pushing augmented reality and smart glasses for a decade now. While you might associate Snapdragon with phones, there are plenty of good reasons you might want the new 835 in a computer for your face.

Sony Walkman NW-A35 looks like a thick, tiny Xperia XZ

Some have declared the Walkman dead in the advent of iPods and then smartphones, but Sony refuses to give up on such an iconic brand. It has revived the name, given it a digital focus, and reshaped it with sometimes odd designs. The new Walkman NW-A35 that it just revealed at CES 2017 is such an example. You wouldn’t be blamed if you mistook it for one of Sony’s smartphones because it pretty much looks like a smaller but thicker version of the its Xperia XZ flagship. Without Android inside as well.

The same goes for gloves, imitation rifles for shooting games, and even, HTC says, a fire hose that may pair well with a simulator.

Samsung Chromebook Plus, Pro flaunt stylus, Android apps

While Samsung may have been one of the earliest adopters of Google’s Chromebook vision, it has languished in recent times compared to other more enthusiastic Chromebook makers. At CES 2017, however, it has returned with a vengeance. Chromebooks that can fold into tablets are nothing new. But one that also has a stylus to boot? Practically unheard of. And that is exactly what Samsung is bringing to the table. And even better, it is coming with Android apps as well, before other existing Chromebooks can get their hands on them (officially, that is).
