Skype has received a sizable update. Meanwhile, HTC is offering an awesome Black Friday deal and Google has launched the Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio.
A new Skype update has hit the Google Play Store, making for what could be the very best improvement we have seen in a while. This is becuase the new update brings forth some very cool multi-tasking features.
During a video call, users can now choose picture-in-picture mode and continue doing other things on their devices while they are on a video chat. In addition, I like that I am able to screen-share what I am doing.
The Android app now also supports receiving photos from Skype for iOS and “other new clients”. Skype also claims chats load faster, more formatting support has been added and native support for Hindi has been included.
Opinion: Not bad, right? Mobile video chats are finally being taken to the next stage, and Skype is leading the way.
The HTC RE Camera is a great little gadget, but its $199.99 price point happens to be a big turn off for many of you. Would you say $99 is a better price point? That is exactly how much HTC will be selling the RE for during Black Friday.
This makes for a 50% off deal! The offer runs from November 27th at 9 PM Pacific to December 1st at 9 PM Pacific. You can get it from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Best Buy.
Opinion: I do believe $199 is a bit high for HTC’s camera. Spend a little more and you can get a decent GoPro camera! At $99, it’s a very sweet deal, though. Who is going to get one?
Have you been hoping to get your hands on a Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio? After all, there is nothing like a physical keyboard to get your work done. The Google Play Store has finally put the accessory in stock and you can now order it.
It will ship in 1-2 days, so you won’t have to wait very long for it. It does cost $129, though, which is not the most accessible price around.
Opinion: While expensive, the Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio is a great tool, and sometimes going with the official accessories is a much better bet. I think it looks like a very solid options.
