There is another Hydrogen phone on the horizon, though if your enthusiasm for one of the most hyped smartphone brands is tempered at this point, it is completely understandable. The Hydrogen One did not exactly enjoy a smooth launch. In a blog post confirming plans to launch a Hydrogen Two model, RED founder Jim Jannard explained why the Hydrogen One stumbled out of the gate. According to Jannard, an ODM (original design manufacturer) in China dropped the ball and did come through on its side of the bargain. That ODM was supposed to prepare the Hydrogen One for manufacturing at Foxconn, which assembles a wide range of electronics, including Apple's iPhone handsets. "While Foxconn has been fantastic,...

If you've been patiently waiting with anticipation for RED's upcoming Hydrogen One smartphone, we've got some disappointing news for you. The company announced this week that the titanium version of the smartphone has been delayed yet again.  According to RED founder Jim Jannard, the first production run of the titanium phones has been a disaster mixed with "all fail". He claims that it is extremely difficult to product the titanium version of the smartphone, and unfortunately, there haven’t been enough blemish-free product coming from its ODM to fulfill all of the preorders that RED has racked up at this point. "Our pre-order Ti customers are the highest order," Jannard added.... Read more...
Facebook and RED Digital Cinema have been collaborating on what the duo calls the world's first end-to-end solution for 3D and 360 video capture. Facebook and RED are offering a first look at the Manifold camera, which is a studio-ready camera system for immersive six degrees of freedom storytelling, and Facebook notes that the camera will allow creative pros to connect with audiences in a "bold new way." This tech could allow moviegoers to watch the action from inside the film in a much more immersive way than was possible before. However, Facebook and RED note that there is "plenty more work on the horizon." Facebook believes that this camera represents a paradigm shift in the ability... Read more...
The Red Hydrogen One Android smartphone has been something of an enigma in the mobile industry. Red has a huge name and stands for high-end quality in the video and camera business, but the company is unknown in the smartphone realm. Its smartphone has started to seem more like vaporware than a real device with continued delays, and here we are with another delay. The smartphone was previously expected to launch this summer, and with summer coming to an end the launch was expected this month. The only folks who will get hands on the Red Hydrogen One smartphone this summer will be pre-approved beta testers. Those folks will get their smartphone, codenamed Houdini, August 31 through September 11.... Read more...
What at one timed seemed to many like vaporware to many is finally coming closer to release. RED's Hydrogen One holographic smartphone just gained approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which paves the way for it to be sold in the United States. Some additional details about the phone were gleaned from the FCC's report including the fact that the device supports all current U.S. wireless carrier LTE bands (with the exception of T-Mobile's Band 71) and that it has a relatively large 4,510 mAh battery. It also has dual SIM slots, which are popular with international travelers. Powering the smartphone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which was all the rage with... Read more...
It’s been nearly a year since RED announced its Hydrogen One Android smartphone, which sets itself apart from a crowded smartphone field with a holographic display. The smartphone was originally supposed to ship during the first quarter of 2018, but we’re now learning that it will actually arrive this summer. Both Verizon Wireless and AT&T, the #1 and #2 wireless carriers in the United States, today announced that they will carry the RED Hydrogen One. “This revolutionary smartphone will provide you with significant advancements in the way you create and view content on the leading network for entertainment,” said Kevin Petersen, AT&T SVP for...

RED, a company known for super high-end Hollywood movie cameras, announced last month that it would be building a smartphone. The biggest claim to fame for the device, called the Hydrogen One, was the glasses-free holographic display. The smartphone would also be able to be used as a remote control for the RED camera systems. What bothered a lot of folks is that other than talking up that holographic display and the ability to control RED cameras, not much else was known. That RED Hydrogen One prototype smartphone has now turned up on a video by Marques Brownlee, who is among the first to see the device in person. The video also shows more images of the smartphone that were reportedly of prototype... Read more...
“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.” To be honest, this is the first thing that sprung to mind upon hearing about RED’s new Hydrogen One smartphone. The way RED talks about the Hydrogen One, you would think that the smartphone could cure cancer, but its claim to fame will no doubt be its 5.7-inch holographic display. According to RED, the Hydrogen One’s display is capable of “seamlessly [switching] between traditional 2D content, holographic multi-view content, 3D content, and interactive games”. All of these interactions can be achieved with the use of 3D glasses or virtual reality headsets like the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. If that wasn’t enough, RED claims that this Android-based...

Red Digital Cinema is a big name in the professional camera market, and the company’s cameras have been used in films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, and the upcoming Matt Damon-helmed flick, The Martian. But not every producer can afford Red’s mega-expensive cameras to shoot films that will end up grossing hundred of millions of dollars at the box office. So the company has announced the Raven, which is a much more affordable camera that while still out of reach for most consumers, is within reason for indie filmmakers. The 3.5-pound Raven uses an 8.8 MP Red Dragon image sensor, which is based on the same sensor that you’ll find in the $29,000 Epic camera. The Raven is capable... Read more...

Microsoft's Corporate VP of Surface, Panos Panay had his work cut out for him at the company's Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 launch event on Monday. Microsoft needed compelling product demos to showcase their new hardware against the current backdrop of stiff competition of alternative platforms and products from Google and Apple.  So, obviously, the first thing they did was call upon their old friend Intel way back at the design stage, empowering their Surface Pro 2 slate with a dual-core Haswell 4th generation Core i5-4200U processor. The Surface 2 Pro is essentially a hybrid tablet-notebook device, weighing in at 2 lbs. with a 10.6-inch full HD display and starting at $899 with 64GB of... Read more...
Ever heard of RED? That's the company making those crazy high-resolution 4K EPIC cameras that all the fancy filmmakers seem to be using these days. But it's the 4K part here that we want to point out; while RED's 4K cameras are wildly small for capturing that much detail, what about this guy? A Canadian company by the name of Point Grey just launched what it's calling the "world's smallest 4K USB 3.0 camera." It's absolutely tiny, and is designed to capture 4096x2160 color images at 21 frames per second. The package is "ice-cube sized," and it can connect to PCs via SuperSpeed USB 3.0. The FL3-U3-88S2C features Sony's new IMX121 sensor with "Exmor R" back-illuminated CMOS architecture, and the... Read more...
3D may be all the rage these days, but let's not forget about that "other" next big thing in the camcorder world: 4K. That's a buzzword that's short for 4K x 2K, a resolution that's four times 1080p and can only be captured by a select few rigs used mainly in high-budget productions and feature films. RED is a company that has been into the 4K recording game since the very beginning, and a slew of movies have been (and are being) produced with the help of their high-res cameras. But this year at the NAB expo, the company came out swinging with something a little different, and it's something that may actually strike you as useful (even coming from a company that sells camcorders worth more than...

Alienware's M17x didn't need much help on the outside to be impressive when it launched in June. After all, any notebook with three NVIDIA GPUs is fine by us, design be darned. That said, the machine is still rather handsome, if not a touch bulky, and it just got even hotter when the addition of a new Nebula Red color scheme. Starting today, the All Powerful M17x can be ordered with the "Special Edition" hue, which is actually a tinted coat of anodized aluminum. The cost for the upgrade? $99. Yeah, that's pretty steep for a paint job, but it sure does look good. Dell's full take on the new color is below.Is it any surprise that Alienware, the company that brought you the All Powerful M17x is... Read more...

Many are familiar with Google's "don't be evil" philosophy of serving the best interests of it users and maintaining a moral-guided internal code of conduct. But not as many might be aware that Google often tries to go beyond just not doing evil, by activey trying to do good deeds. This is evident with Google's philanthropic endeavors and its recent Project10100 worldwide call to arms for the betterment of humanity in areas such as energy, the environment, and health. Google's latest effort to make a difference is not quite as big as the aforementioned projects, but as they say, every little bit counts.  Click the above image to see a larger-sized image.And it is exactly the little...

We have explained in numerous articles in the past that the bulk of GPU sales are made in the form of ether IGPs (Integrated Graphics Processors) or affordable, mainstream graphics cards.  As powerful and exciting as the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 or GeForce  GTX 280 cards may be, AMD and NVIDIA simply don't sell as many flagship products as they do mainstream cards.It is because of this fact that both companies consistently refresh their mainstream offerings every few months or so, and continually push new features and performance down their respective product lines.  As many of you may have expected, since AMD recently released the RV770 GPU,...

On Thursday Comcast announced a 250 GB cap for their broadband service.  We applauded the fact that they finally gave some transparency to their "hidden" cap, which had always snagged a few users, without telling them exactly how much their use should be, but then we realized: where's the meter? Time-Warner Cable is currently trying out metered service in Beaumont, TX. Their caps are lower, but they do provide one thing: a page you can go to in order to check your usage. And what's interesting is the response you get if you ask Comcast about any plans for a meter: Charlie Douglas, who is Director of Corporate Communications for Comcast's Online & Voice Services, and who wrote us back...

According to retailer reports, an almost certain iPod line revamp is coming in September. That seems pretty likely, as Apple seems to favor September for iPod launches. At the same time, reports of actual iPod nano details have arisen. Mid-week reports arose of retailers such as Target showing current models of iPods as discontinued when scanned through their PDAs. Finally Lehman Brothers analyst Ben Reitzes restated his claim that the iPod Touch needs a repositioning (it clearly does, with the new subsidized iPhone 3G pricing): "We continue to believe Apple will need to reposition the iPod touch line in conjunction with its anticipated new product announcement in early to mid-September now that...

File-sharing, that's widely discussed.  But game sharing, not so much.  Basically the focus until now has been on music and movies, but now it seems industry has decided games being shared via P2P also deserve to be addressed. As many as 100 people suspected of illegally sharing computer game files over the internet are to be sued for copyright infringement, it emerged today. A London-based law firm said it would launch legal proceedings on behalf of the computer game publisher Topware Interactive after a woman was fined £16,000 for illegally sharing a pinball-themed game over the web. The woman, who has not been named, was forced to pay £6,000 of damages and £10,000... Read more...
