I remember when I was a kid, Walkman players were only accessible by the rich kids in school while the rest of us sat at the sideline envying. Then when my parents finally bought me a Walkman, along came the CD players to put us back at our sad little corners once again; those were the days. These days, kids not only have their parents’ or even their own smartphones to play with, but there are even tech devices specially made for kids like the Aerial7 headphones we have for review today.
Review starts after the break.
The Nike Air Mag or the Back To The Future shoe Marty McFly wore in the 1989 movie was released as a charity auction pair in 2011 with 1,500 being sold on eBay on September the 8th. Even our very own se7en bid on a pair, but didn’t manage to get one. The general consensus was that while it was a great shoe to have in a collection and the LED panel and electroluminescent Nike swoosh was cool and all, this pair lacked a very important feature that was its coolest feature in the movie – Self Tying Laces.
Confused by the headline? We don’t blame you, whenever the word “Android” gets mentioned, Google automatically pops into mind but Android means a lot more than just a mobile operating system by the internet search giant, Android is also a brand that designs and sells watches in the U.S. and the company has recently announced that they will jump into the smartphone bandwagon to make its first smartwatch that runs on Google Android OS.
To be launched in December 2013, Android SmartWatch will be similar to all the smartwatches we’ve been seeing as of late – Pebble, Galaxy Gear or Sony Smartwatch 2, allowing you to have basic control over your smartphone like making/receiving calls, reading notification, toggle music, and while nothing much has been mentioned, it looks like there may be speaker and mic on board as well, according to the screenshot page.

While the Samsung Galaxy Gear may be the trending topic for smartwatches these days, many would also remember that Sony announced its second iteration of the Sony SmartWatch series at the end of June. The Sony SmartWatch 2 was announced globally in Shanghai at the same time as the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and it was rumoured that it will be available in Malaysia at the end of September.
Well, that didn’t happen, but Sony Malaysia’s Online Store now has a listing for the new SmartWatch 2. It will be available in two variants: the black metal strap variant will retail for RM850, while the standard rubber strap version will cost RM780. Both variants will sport the same set of hardware, with a 1.6-inch 220 x 176 LCD display, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC and compatibility for most Android smartphones.
We’ve approached a Sony exec for more information, and will update the post accordingly.
I’m sure by now you’re all aware that there are no electronic products that Samsung can’t make, they have practically all the household electronic appliances out there, televisions, cameras, a lot of phones that caters to every single segment in the market, they recently ventured into the smartwatch segment with the Galaxy Gear, and it looks like they might be making glasses as well and not your average glasses, but a “smart” one that is similar to what Google has.
Tweeted by Eldar Murtazin from Mobile-review, it is said that the glasses will be called “Gear Glass” and will make its debut in early 2014, just in time for Google Glass launch, maybe. Of course, it’s only a rumor so take it with a pinch of salt. It’ll be great to see what Samsung has got to offer, they are very good in their software, and a healthy competition can only mean good for us consumers.
Anyone here looking forward to a pair of smart glasses from Samsung or will you stick to Google Glass instead?
