Most of the times broadband has been used as a brand name to lure customers but nobody actually cared about the way it was being heavily used by companies. Now, with latest data from FCC out into the public, it looks like the situation might just be going out of hand for United States of America.
This might be a bit late considering we are talking about the place where technology takes birth. In a recent press release Senator Snowe has introduced to the legislation the ideas to enhance the wireless coverage within Federal structures to fight the spectrum crunch.
CES 2010 was a great festival that covered tons of new releases by numerous companies. Wireless devices have always been a center of attraction. At the festival, RCA showcased the world’s very first realistic Wireless Charger. RCA’s Airnergy is here to answer all questions pertaining to wireless charging technology.
The device features neo-technological circuitry that converts WiFi energy into electricity using air as the medium! The Airnergy utilizes a mini-USB port for connecting to other devices. During a test at the CES, Airnergy successfully charged a Blackberry from 30% to full in about 90 minutes harnessing the power from WiFi signals.
Earlier last month Spring Design launched a cool new ebook reader gadget known as Alex. What’s special about this latest ebook reader is that it runs Google’s Android and has two displays. The top one as you can see is a conventional monochromic electronic paper display that’s six-inch in size while the bottom one is a colour touchscreen which allows you to use Android to browse the internet and blogs.
What’s unique about having dual display, is when you’re browsing the internet either via its built-in 3G modem or Wi-Fi, the Alex will let you visit a web site, select a story, and the device will reflow it to the EPD screen. This makes it feel like whatever it is you’re reading has been published as a newspaper article. Though one issue I think I would have with it is that it appears to be a very long device, this may make it less portable.
The colour screen can be switched off to save power. This makes browsing blogs and news sites much more feasible, since you don’t have to wait for the ebook to render individual pages before you get to your target content.
The capacitive LCD touchscreen running Android also supports UI customization, photo galleries, and full-color video playback. When you read an ebook, the interface lets you quickly skip around to any page, using an on-screen slide bar. An on-screen keyboard also makes text entry practical. With so many multimedia features, I would say the Alex is probably one of the best boredom fight gadgets to be launched in recent months 🙂
There was a rumor about the possbility of launching a next gen BlackBerry Storm 2 with WiFi on Verizon Wireless some time ago, but this was thought by most as a joke at first. However, sources have now confirmed that the rumor was in fact true. The BlackBerry Storm 2 will launch on Verizon with WiFi, obviously for far more greater connectivity and faster web browsing. I personally believe WiFi has been the single most importantly let down for the Storm, otherwise it would have been a far greater device with much more popularity. Sources also confirm that the next Storm, Storm 2 has a new screen technology, which aims to make typing easier. It is believed that the Storm 2 will be launching around September time, which makes you think – BlackBerry has reduced the cycle time of its first full touchscreen device to less than a year, they must be in a hurry!
