Sony secretly showed its e-paper smart watch to the world, OnePlus is opening its first store and Mophie is selling everything at a 40% discount.
Recent reports show that Sony is working on a smart watch with a bit of a twist. The idea would be that it is to come with a surface made out of e-paper, completely. With a higher focus on fashion and looks, the device wouldn’t be as full-featured as other smart watches.
It turns out Sony has already unveiled said device, but they did so without attaching Sony’s name to it. The FES Watch was crowdfunded without Sony’s branding because the manufacturer wanted to see the true value and interest on such a product.
Opinion: Hiding a product in plain sight. Not a bad idea. Now that we all know what Sony has been working on, we have to think about our options. Would you get one of these watches?
How can OnePlus beat the monster Xiaomi has become? If you want to compete in China, you need to be strong. OnePlus is getting ready to show its goods in Beijing, where the company will be opening its first store in December 20th.
The store is meant to be more of an experience than a retail location. They want people to test the device and get familiarized with it. Of course, you will also be able to purchase devices and accessories. We can imagine there won’t be too much to look at, though. OnePlus has a limited selection of products.
Opinion: The store is looking great, and I believe it will be an important part of getting more people used to the device. I can say I rarely ever buy a device that I haven’t used in the past. I like to make sure I like something, especially when it’s something pricey like a smartphone.
Mophie is holding a very nice sale over at their website. You can pretty much get anything in there at a 40% discount by using the coupon code “POWER”. Of course, there is a catch, though.
Orders need to be $70 and over in order for the discount to work. This is still a great deal, though, because most Mophie products are worth a pretty penny, anyways. And you get 50% off a few products, like the space pack for iPhone 5/5s, the juice pack for the Galaxy S4 and the powerstand.
This offer is available until December 12th, so get your card ready.
Opinion: I always recommend Mophie cases, simply because they double as an external battery. They offer a bunch of juice, and the size won’t bug you too much if you are already using a case.
