After all these years, Dell is still capable of surprising not only its fans but also the market. Its cloud-based service called Dell Wyse is currently focusing on user security. On the other hand, it also believes that lugging around a heavy laptop is not very much practical at this day and age. With this, it has taken on the Project Ophelia which is actually a very portable Android stick which is capable of using any monitor or HDTV as a display screen. The official press release even promises that the device will be easily kept inside a user’s pocket.
You may be thinking that other similar products have already been introduced in the market and so what is the difference with this one. Apparently, the Project Ophelia does not pack internal memory but instead, accesses a cloud server where you can save all your files and data, away from physical security risks.
Other features of the Project Ophelia include gaming, typing or note-taking and displaying presentations.
More details about the product is quite scarce as of now. The company is probably still trying to iron out all the kinks. As for availability, Dell is set to release the device during the first or second quarter of 2013. Pricing has yet to be announced.
As the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 is nearing closer as it does, tech companies might have been doing their last minute pre-launch promotional on the product they’re about to introduce in said event to be held in Las Vegas this January. Indeed, Samsung has provided some previews of its new Smart Hub television.
The still elusive Sammy TV is described as a not the ordinary smart television with its design. For one, it has the most unique shape yet. As the photo shows, the said TV looks like a transparent monitor in a portrait mode.
In addition, the South Korea-based company also posted a promo video of the said TV that highlighted its difference from the usual widescreen 16:9 format units. Some say that the layout of the screen looks like that of the Windows Media Center. As a HDTV, it is said to have 1080p panels.
Indeed, Samsung is gearing towards its full commitment to continuous innovation. As last year, the company has launched Smart Evolution that allows upgrading of models. They also introduced HDTV with functions as motion detection for controller-free input and Siri-like voice control .
Other specifications and features of Samsung HDTV are still to be unveiled in the annual CES. Also, price of such TV set is still something to be waited for.
