QUICKVIEW: HTC Mini+ Bluetooth Telephone Receiver and Remote Control for HTC One and Desire Smartphones
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:38 CET under 08 - Reviews

Ever, since I saw the first HTC Mini, I was fascinated by the idea to have a Bluetooth telephone receiver which can do even more and I was even more fascinated, when I learned more about the HTC Mini+ earlier this summer. The HTC Mini+ is described to be a multi-tasking solution for HTC Android phone users which allows to take calls while using the phone to surf online, watch videos or play games. Furthermore it provides instant notifications of text messages, events and E-Mails and comes with handy features like hands-free remote camera control, doubles as a TV remote control for HTC phones without an infrared transmitter and pairs with selected HTC devices to operate multimedia streaming through the HTC Media Link HD.

REVIEW: HTC One max Android 4.3 Phablet with HTC Sense 5.5
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:09 CET under 08 - Reviews

With this week's launch of the HTC One max, HTC has completed its 2013 lineup of the One family and like the One mini before, the One max is targeting a different kind of One clientele which nevertheless is looking for a stylish smartphone. However, the One max isn't just another smartphone but it's - more or less - HTC's first phablet, a segment HTC hasn't addressed so far and where it also has no alternatives in the tablet segment since HTC discontinued the HTC Flyer. So now HTC has its first Android phablet, which shares the DNA of the original One and runs, straight from launch, on Android 4.3 as well as the brand new and updated HTC Sense 5.5.

REVIEW: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX10 WiFi Lens-Camera for Android and iOS Smartphones
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:46 CET under 08 - Reviews

If you have read my recent column - "Instagram, EyeEm an Co. - or how your Smartphone Photos can become your own Art" - you already know that I'm a big fan of smartphone photography since my smartphone is always with me. Therefore I was absolutely thrilled when the first Sony Cyber-shot lens camera leaks hit the web because the idea to put a complete camera on your phone sounds pretty appealing. The concept behind the Cyber-shot lens camera is that it is a complete camera, with lens, image sensor, etc. but without the camera body and display. And indeed, at last last week's press conference at the IFA in Berlin, Sony officially announced the Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 WiFi lens cameras.

QUICKVIEW: Google Chromecast Media Streamer - a European Perspective
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:36 CET under 08 - Reviews

Two weeks ago, during its Press Breakfast, Google announced its - until then totally unknown - Google Chromecast. A so called "media streamer" which plugs into the HDMI port of a HDTV (or monitor) and allows to stream content from the Internet to the big screen. While a PC, Mac, Android smartphone/tablet or iPhone/iPad is used to control the Chromecast, in general the content itself is then directly received from the respective Internet services like YouTube, Netflix or Google Play. The only exception is the screen mirroring option of Google's Chrome browser on Windows PCs or Mac OS computers. When the Chromecast was announced, I ordered it the same night from the U.S. but delivery took a little bit longer - unfortunately.
