Amiigo Fitness Bracelet (1)

There are so many fitness bracelets in the market such as the Nike FuelBand, MotoACTV, and Jawbone UP. It certainly won't hurt if another one is added to the mix, especially if it works more intelligently than the rest. The Amiigo fitness bracelet also comes with a compatible fitness app. The lightweight plastic bracelet comes with a detachable shoe-clip and can identify what kind of exercise you are doing. In fact, the Amiigo bracelet is so intelligent it can even tell you if you are doing the exercise right with the help of its bevvy of sensors that analyzes how your body is responding to your every move. And those exercises you are doing gets identified through Amiigo's gesture-based software algorithms, which improve over time as the software learns more about how you move. Although you do not have to wear both the bracelet and the shoe-clip, it certainly helps in distinguishing between a run and a bicep curl. It also generates real-time fitness data by sensor-tracking different variables such as your heart rate, skin temperature, and even blood oxygen levels. Meanwhile, the Amiigo app is available for both iOS and Android devices. The software allows you to view the data, set fitness goals, customize challenges, share workouts in real time, and accumulate fitness points for a chance to redeem them for discounts on fitness gear. The Amiigo is not yet available in stores, as it kicks off its fund raising on Indiegogo on October 29th with an aim of raising $90,000 and hopes to be ready to ship in April next year. Backers would be able to snag the bracelet for $89, while the rest of us can get it for $119. Source: TechCrunch Read More

BlackBerry 10 to Integrate Social Networking into Contacts (0)

One of the several features expected to appear in the BlackBerry 10 platform is the ability to display social networking and other data about your contacts and put them all together in a single location. This means that not only it will show your friend's phone number and email address, but also his latest tweets, Facebook status updates, and other nitty-gritty details about his online life. The upcoming mobile OS will also have enterprise-specific features, such as displaying future meetings scheduled with a particular contact. If these features seem familiar to you, it is because these have already been utilized on the Motorola Droid, and Android 2.0-powered smartphone debuted back in 2009. You have heard it right: expect the BB10 to integrate some of Android's goodness into their upcoming platform. It is very clear that RIM is setting its sights on the competition for some inspiration. With some of the Android-esque capabilities expected to appear on the BlackBerry 10, we wonder whether the platform will also borrow functions from iOS and Windows Phone. The new BlackBerry 10 platform, along with its flagship handsets, are set to debut in early 2013. Source: Reuters, via Information Week Read More

GoBiz i-Microphone Review (2)

CrunchGear put up a comprehensive review on the GoBiz i-Microphone, which works as a microphone attachment to improve audio recording quality of smartphones. With podcasters and audiobook authors choosing smartphones over other types of recording device because of its convenience and portability, there is a need for a low-cost microphone attachment that would provide a clearer, more audible recorded sound. The GoBiz i-Microphone costs only US$25 and can instantly turn most smartphones into a professional recording device. CrunchGear tested the device on iPhone 3G and Motorola Droid and based on its trials, the GoBiz i-Microphone shows a marked improvement in volume, although the overall sound quality may suffer because of its omnidirectional orientation. The review recommends tweaking the recorded files with audio software like Audacity, but do not dare record with this device while in a crowded area because even the best software could not produce a better result.

Google Introduces Nexus One to Public (1)

After weeks of anticipation from techies the world over, Google has unveiled to members of the press the Nexus One, its first consumer electronics device previously known as the Google Phone.  Set to compete with Apple's iPhone and Research in Motion's BlackBerry, the HTC-made Nexus One runs an updated tweak of the Google Android OS.Apart from what are expected from smartphones developed post-iPhone-touchscreen display, 5-megapixel camera, and stereo Bluetooth for headphones-the Nexus One pulls off features that impress us.  The phone includes a Global Positioning System, two microphones (one for noise cancellation), and a speech dictation technology, which transcribes what you speak on the Nexus One as you compose e-mails, tweets, and Facebook status updates.Reactions, however, were not as mind-blowing as Google might have expected.  "The Nexus One has attractive features, but many of them were already available on other phones that use Google's Android operating system," wrote Jessica Guynn of Los Angeles Times.Michael Gartenberg, an analyst from Interpret research firm, says that the new phone provides a perception that not all Android phones are created equal.  "If I was a (Motorola Droid) customer who just bought the phone a month ago, I might not feel so good."The Nexus One is now available on Google's online store for US$529 if you want it unlocked or $179 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile.  Similar offers will be available from Verizon Wireless and United Kingdom's Vodafone within this year.  It is also expected to be shipped in Singapore and Hong Kong.Image source:  Google Read More
