HP is going all out with an upcoming laptop, Noke is revolutionizing the lock and Motorola has a new Droid in the works.
Every market has those affordable devices that are also amazing devices, but the Windows laptop market hasn’t quite identified that one device for the masses. The latest leak shows an HP Stream, a 14-inch laptop that is said to cost as little as $199!
The 720p display would be powered by an AMD A4 Micro-6400T 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, Windows 8.1 and 32 Wh battery. Storage will be available in 32 and 64 GB options.
Opinion: The HP Stream’s release date is unknown, but I already know I want one of these. It would be a great laptop to carry around for light work and browsing. And for $200, you really can’t go wrong.
We know nearly anything that shows up on Kickstarter will surprise us. At least the idea will, because some products don’t end up being as amazing as they seem on those fancy videos. Regardless, this is one of the coolest Kickstarter campaigns I have seen in a while.
Enter the Noke, a lock that works via bluetooth. It’s a simple concept, you can press the device and it will try to connect to your smartphone. After a few seconds, it will be unlocked and you are ready to go. No more worrying about losing keys or forgetting combinations.
You can get one by pledging as little as $59. Go get it!
Opinion: Traditional locks haven’t evolved much, making the Noke a neat invention that may be a relief. Especially for forgetful people like me.
The Motorola DROID Turbo is a device we have never heard of before. It is said to be a new Verizon-bound smartphone with powerful specs. It will have a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, a 4.59-inch 2560x1440p display and 20MP/2MP cameras. It will also run Android 4.4.4, but no extra details are available.
Opinion: This same device was recently filed under Bluetooth Sig, making it a bit believable. The sources are still not the most solid, though, so take it all with a grain of salt.
