Calling this thing “digital paper” is kinda like calling a memory card “digital film” but it gets the point across. Sony’s Digital Paper device is the world’s thinnest & lightest tablet; one that allows users to read, edit, annotate, save & share files from MS Word, Power Point, PDF, & Excel, effectively eliminating the need for paper. It features wi-fi, a hi-contrast reflective display, SD memory card compatibility & a whopping 3-week battery life. Available May 2014.
Last year’s HTC One was the brand’s best phone ever. Now it’s even better. The new version of their flagship phone is called the One (M8) and it not only looks great, it’s loaded: 5-inch 1080 display, Motion Launch gesture control, Duo Camera, and dozens of other face-melting features that may have you 2nd guessing that new iPhone purchase.
If you’ve been waiting for a smart watch that doesn’t scream “look, I’m an early-adopter” you can thank Motorola for the Moto 360; a normal, good looking “Android Wear“-powered watch that subtly delivers notifications & alerts and also features voice-activated functions like Google searches, scheduling appointments and setting alarms. Available Summer 2014.
A phone that shoots photos and videos. Nothing special. But this one can record in 4K. Sounds crazy but that’s what the new Xperia Z2 does. With a 30% larger optical sensor and a huge 20.3-megapixel image size, this new Android phone is technically superior to most. It’s also waterproof.
Using topo maps on your iPhone will suck the life from the device before you leave the trailhead so it’s only logical that this topo map phone case also provides backup power for your phone. It packs a 1460 mAh Li-Ion battery and holds gigs of pre-loaded state-by-state topo map data.
Wireless smart headphones. They not only connect via bluetooth to the 1-pound phone in your pocket but these little buds also hold up to 100 songs—in case you like to workout without also carrying your stupid smartphone along. That in itself is enough reason to buy them but they also function as a headset, microphone, fitness tracker, HR monitor, and sports watch.
For those few remaining spots on the globe where there’s no wi-fi, ihe Iridium Go is a sat-fi hotspot, linking you & five other devices to the web via satellite. It’s got a rugged build and also features an SOS function to alert emergency services wherever you are.
Doubling the battery life in your iPhone 5 & 5S is a lifesaver by itself but the new Mophie Space Pack also doubles the storage space on your device. Instead of deleting stuff, expand your phone’s capacity by 16 or 32Gigs with one of these.
Instead of toting that brick of a power supply around to power your laptop, try this diet-size device from FINsix; it’s the smallest laptop adapter & it squirts out the necessary 65W of juice you need to keep your laptop running right.
It’s a bad sign but if you’re going to get a controller for playing games on your phone, this is the one. The iMpulse fits on your keyring and gives you a full D-pad, 4 buttons, and 2 triggers. Works with both iOS & Android.
