Samsung Interactive Smart TV

Samsung’s Interactive Smart TV series was recently launched in India. Users can control the TV through voice or motion commands. Users can also switch the TV on or off without touching the remote. How? The new smart TV series features a built-in camera and motion sensors that recognise movement in the foreground. However,the motion control has its iffy moments,as your palm must face the TV for the controls to work. The new TV range has built-in WiFi,browser and app store,giving it a savvy edge over other idiot boxes.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 310

This one in Samsung’s Galaxy tablet series comes with a seven-inch screen and Android 4.0. The tablet has both 3G and WiFi. The company claims the new tablet has improved web browsing,faster response times and a more intuitive UI with upgraded swipe control applications. The tablet comes with a Samsung Readers Hub,which gives users access to several e-publications. The tablet is pretty light at 345 grams and comes with a powerful 4,000 mAh battery. Available in 16 GB and 32 GB storage sizes.

Envent Slider Keyboard

It is rather hard to imagine why anyone would need a slider keyboard for an iPhone 4. Envent’s Bluetooth slider keyboard case is built for that rare person who needs physical keys to type. Its keypad reminds you of Nokia’s N97 but this one also doubles up as a plastic case for your iPhone. A button on the side helps pair the keypad to the iPhone. The small QWERTY keys are made of plastic,so typing becomes a little tedious. It would have been much better had Envent used rubber. But this should be good for those with small fingers.

WD MyBook Live Duo 4TB

Last week,WD launched My Book Live Duo,a personal cloud storage device. My Book Live Duo continuously maintains a second copy of all your files. So,in a 4TB device,only 2TB will be available. The rest will be a backup of your files. For automatic backup,Windows users can use the included WD SmartWare software and Mac users can utilise all the features of Apple Time Machine backup software. Users can access their data from anywhere in the world from and with WD mobile apps for iPad,iPhone or Android phones and tablets.
