If you're a big fan of Amazon's Dash buttons, prepare to be floored: the company has just added 50 new buttons to its portfolio. For some, most of their shopping list could be ordered through these buttons - unless of course those orders include Mrs. Dash spices, which ironically don't have their own button. It's impossible to say that Amazon has catered to a certain audience with its 50 new Dash buttons, because really, they're all over the place. Want soup? No problem! Eat too much garlic and need to freshen up the place? Might as well pick up some air freshener, and not to mention some... Read more...
Earlier this year, BLU Products introduced a pair of unlocked smartphones that cost $199 off-contract, and the company is back with three more handsets at even lower price points; the least expensive of the group, the Dash Jr, costs just $49 unlocked. BLU CEO Samuel Ohev-Zion put the company’s goal succinctly in a press release by saying, “Almost 1 billion feature phones are going to be shipped this year. Our job is to facilitate the transition from feature phones by bringing affordable internet and smartphone connectivity to consumers without compromise on quality, user experience... Read more...
Remember the Sony Dash? We wouldn't blame you if it has slipped your mind, but Sony's keeping it alive and kicking, and it's giving people a reason for taking a second look if you've overlooked it in the past. The company has introduced two new models (the HID-B7 and HID-B70), which offers enhanced real-time, customizable, information delivery, and the addition of a basic Internet browser. For portability, the HID-B70 Dash model now features a built-in lithium ion battery, so the device can be easily transported from room to room. It is also available in three colors: Brown, slate blue and orange.... Read more...
Ah, the Sony Dash. It was an interesting device from the start, but the main complaint we heard with it was the inability to take it anywhere. It's a widget-centric device that displays lots of useful information on the screen that you can digest at a glance. But it requires an AC power connection, so it's only as good as your tether. If it's in your bedroom, you can't use it in your den, or vice-versa. It's a great concept, but too limited by a lack of a battery. Sony has clearly realized that, and it now making things right. The company has just introduced two new Dash products, with one being... Read more...
And now, there's finally another reason to buy Sony's Dash. Previously, the Dash was a really niche device. It was a sophisticated bedside clock, and while the Chumby widgets provided a nice amount of information at a glance, the trouble is that few people stay by their bedside (awake) for very long. They're either hopping up and checking stats on their smartphone or heading to a real computer. But now, the Dash is your perfect bedside companion for dozing off to sleep. Hulu Plus is now supported on the device, and as long as you have a Hulu Plus subscription, you can now surf through shows and... Read more...

Do you know who is currently the world's most "admired" company? According to recent reports, that would be Apple. Even though the company has less than 10% of the global PC operating system market share, Steve Jobs has managed to create a force that has permeated throughout the consumer electronics realm, and the mindshare battle is clearly being won by those at 1 Infinite Loop. But one of the biggest (if not the biggest) company in all of CE doesn't exactly like that, and they're finally fighting back. Sony has been lagging behind in many respects for years now. They have forced people to use... Read more...
It may seem an odd way to write news about a product, but before we talk about the Sony Dash, we're going to talk about the Chumby. A Chumby is a bit of consumer electronics designed to run a variety of widgets that can do...well...just about anything. The entire project has been open-source from the beginning, and the touchscreen device is capable of functioning as an alarm clock, digital picture frame, streaming Internet radio, displaying RSS feeds, and any number of other options. An entire development effort has sprung up around the device; there are currently more than 1500 widgets/applications... Read more...
With Apple's iPhone OS 3.0 hitting the Web today and the new iPhone 3G S landing in stores this Friday, we can't think of a worse possible week to launch a smartphone. That said, T-Mobile USA has defied logic by introducing the newest Dash handset. If you'll recall, the original Dash was launched way back in 2006, making this one seriously ripe for an upgrade. After finally flipping the switch on its 3G network not too long ago, the HTC-designed T-Mobile Dash 3G obviously takes advantage of those faster data speeds and clearer voice channels. There's also 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi for when Internet hotspots... Read more...
