QUICKVIEW: MHL - the "Missing HD Link" or correctly the "Mobile High-Definition Link"
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:56 CET under 08 - Reviews

Ever thought about connecting your phone to your TV or office monitor to show your family or colleagues some photos or videos? Think no longer but just do it because if you own one of the newer Android smartphones, chances are high that it features "MHL" which is the acronym for "Mobile High Definition Link". Founded as the MHL Consortium in April 2010 by Nokia, Samsung, Silicon Image, Sony and Toshiba, MHL is an industry standard for a mobile audio/video interface which allows to connect mobile phones and tablets to high-definition televisions and audio receivers. The standard supports up to 1080p/60 HD video and 7.1 surround sound audio output while simultaneously charging the connected device and even allowing to remote control it through a single Remote Control unit.

QUICKVIEW: Visit of the Timbuk2 Headquarter and Factory in San Francisco
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:51 CET under 08 - Reviews

It's not a secret anymore that I love bags for a long time and my most favorite bag brand today is Timbuk2; and yes, I have a personal fable for the bags from San Francisco. Somehow, a gadget user, traveler and professional has to carry all the stuff, like during this week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and Timbuk2 gave me from day one what I was looking for. A fashionable, customized looking messenger bag which is different from other bags. Somehow, or better thanks to social media, Timbuk2 recognized, that I'm one of their bigger fans on the other side of the pond and they invited me last year to visit their HQ whenever I'll be in San Francisco. Thanks to Frequencies by HTC, I was in town earlier last month and therefore I took the chance to meet with the folks from Timbuk2, namely with Noel, Timbuk2's community manager.

VIDEOVIEW: Hands-on with the Samsung HomeSync
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:45 CET under 08 - Reviews

While Samsung's latest hero and focus device at the current Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is the company's new Note 8.0, Samsung is also showing its new HomeSync media hub solution which plays - well, as expected - quite nice with Samsung's own Galaxy smartphones. HomeSync, which runs on Android Jelly Bean, comes with a 1 TB drive that allows users to sync with multiple devices (from phones to tablets to PCs) and providing a shared and private storage space for all kind of content. It supports eight separate accounts to cover a whole family, and allows each user to upload and download content from multiple devices and instantly share with other family members.

At today's press event in London, where HTC unveiled its new Android smartphone - the HTC One - I also had some quality time with HTC's latest flagship device. The device features a zero-gap aluminum unibody design and sporting a brilliant 4.7”, Full HD (1080p) screen. The HTC One, which will be available in stunning silver and beautiful black, features a sleek and crafted aluminum unibody sits comfortably in the hand and showcases HTC's unique antenna technology, which helps people achieve a crystal clear signal. The display also resists scratches and reduces glare, whilst offering incredible 468ppi resolution and rich, natural colors.
