HTC One mini 2
HTC is launching a 4.5″ variant of its flagship One (m8) handset, the One mini 2. As with the m8, this model features the distinctive brushed metal finish and BoomSound stereo speakers, 326ppi screen and amplified front stereo speakers. A high-resolution 13MP camera replaces it’s big brother’s DuoCamera.
Most of the differences between the mini 2 and m8 take place under the hood. Inside is a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1Gb of RAM and 16Gb of internal storage, which can be expanded to 128Gb by accommodating a microSD memory card.
The Android 4.4 smartphone will run HTC’s Sense 6 user interface complete with its BlinkFeed news aggregating software.
Connectivity remains solid with 4G, dual-band Wi-Fi (802.11n), Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and support for NFC.
This year’s slate of HP Office Jet printers puts an emphasis on wireless printing from tablets and smartphones. The Envy 5640 sits in the mid-range with print speeds up to 12 pages per minute.
As people forego standalone media players in favour of having everything on their smartphone the problem arises as to how one plays DJ at a party where decks have been quickly replaced with docks or varying shapes and sizes. Openmix solves this problem by acting as a central point between two devices. It connects any two audio sources via a 3.5mm jack to connect to your amplifier/stereo. The gizmo lets you mix and match from the two sources.
Currently raising funds on Kickstarter.
