We saw a lot of these features go by in fast-forward when that Honeycomb video leaked the other day, and you could get a sense of Android 3.0 through the screenshots there. But if you really want to know what it’s like, you’d better take a gander at this series of videos T-Mobile has put out. They’ve been around for a while but we thought we’d just put them in one place for your convenience.
I’ll let them speak for themselves. No sense duplicating their content with a tedious explanation of each one.
We’ve been excited about the Orbitix Sphero for a while now and we just got a little time to roll this odd little ball around CES. It’s quite cute and the iPhone UI is amazing. Check out our take, below.
Remember that video we posted earlier that was quickly taken down — but not before we took screenshots and put them on display. Turns out that was supposed to air just a few minutes ago as part of T-Mobile’s “G-Slate” promotion. Yes, it’s a T-Mobile tablet running Honeycomb.
Literally all that was shared is that it’s from T-Mobile, it’s 4G (though some may disagree with that term), and it runs Honeycomb. Yet they can make a 1000-word press release out of that. Talk about spinning straw into gold!
Last night we were streaming live from the CES Unveiled press pre-show event, but of course, not everyone can be watching a live stream during the rush hour on a workday, so we’ve collected a bunch of the videos we took there and put them in one big post for you — to whet your appetite for our live coverage tonight of Pepcom, another big press event, starting at 7.
There was some interesting tech at Unveiled, but it’s really about experiencing the lunacy that is every CES press event. Tortellini, drinks, booth jostling, and crowd noise are all I remember. Caution: lots of video windows inside. RAM use may skyrocket.
We had a few minutes to talk with YouMail about their voicemail app for Blackberry, Android, and iOS. Youmail essentially replaces your voicemail service with one click and gives you rich graphical representations of your calls and stores them in the cloud. Take a gander at our brief interview.
Yap.tv, covered previously by our own Jason Kinkaid adds a social layer to your TV watching by grabbing the current TV listings and adding comments, social feeds, and news. It allows you to watch programming with a “third screen,” most notably the iPad.
We are winging our way to Las Vegas as we speak so check back here early and often for great news, views, and reviews from the show floor. We’ll be livestreaming most of the show this week, so get your headphones out!
We’ll publish a full schedule of events this evening. Thanks for tuning in!
