When it comes to smart televisions, TCL has carved out a nice chunk of the U.S. market for itself over the past few years. The company's Roku TVs offer a blend of compelling performance, excellent value and of course, Roku integration. Best Buy is currently running a Labor Day promotion on the TCL 55-inch 5-Series 4K HDR TV (55S515).

Earlier this week, we brought you the latest news on Palm's rise from the dead thanks to certifications received from both the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Wi-Fi Alliance. Now, we're getting our first look at the device, which is a tiny little smartphone that clearly bucks the trend of today's ginormous-screen flagships. The phone was developed under the codename "Pepito" by TCL, and is destined to be a Verizon exclusive when it launches later this year. What's interesting is that it has a 3.3-inch display, which is even smaller than what was found on the original Apple iPhone... Read more...
Earlier this year, we heard rumors that a Palm-branded smartphone would making its way to Americans in late 2018.

Now, we're receiving more evidence that a smartphone launch is imminent. The PVG100 smartphone manufactured by the TCL subsidiary Palm Ventures Group has been certified by both the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

When the first 4K TVs hit the market, their high price and dearth of worthwhile content made them a tough sell. But before long, 4K TVs became much more affordable, to the point today where there's little reason not to consider one if you're looking to upgrade. TCL's 55R617 unit is a perfect example of how the incredible value found in today's TVs. At $649.50 (as of the time of writing), this 55-inch television supports both HDR10 and DolbyHDR formats with the DCI-P3 color profile, so that you can enjoy current or remastered HDR-supported content with much richer color than typical sets...

It seems that Verizon Wireless is going to sell a new Android phone made by Palm, a brand you probably have not heard referenced in quite some time. There are not many details to go on, other than the fact that TCL is working with Verizon to bring the Palm-branded handset to market, which could hold some nostalgic appeal. Whether TCL and Verizon play up that angle remains to be seen. While details of the actual handset are pretty much non-existent, Android Police says an unnamed "trusted source" indicated the Palm device will launch on Verizon sometime in the second half of this year. Verizon is... Read more...

Up until now, if you wanted to enjoy Roku on your television, you needed to purchased a dedicated set-top box or HDMI dongle. Now you have two more options -- purchase a Hisense or or TLC smart television with built-in Roku support. This is a vision Roku first shared with the public back at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last January, and it's now come to fruition. "Just like our Roku players, Roku TV offers an exceptional streaming experience filled with endless entertainment choices. But we didn’t just stick a Roku player inside the TV. We enhanced the Roku operating system... Read more...
The revolution won't just be televised, it is a television. Or, more precisely, an emerging television standard. We've known for some time that 4K Ultra HD would be the next frontier in TV land, though high prices and lack of content are two hurdles that have kept the revolution at arm's length, ensuring that your swanky new Full HD 1080p television is still relevant. Eventually the industry will leap over both hurdles, and perhaps sooner than you think. Chinese manufacturer TCL (The Creative Live), supposedly the third largest TV brand in the world, just announced its fall product lineup for the... Read more...
Remember webTV? It's not coming back in the same way that it left, but it's clear that more web browsing is going on on TVs now that "Smart TVs" are finding their way into homes. Hillcrest Labs is announcing today an entirely new level to that paradigm, as it has been selected by TCL in order to bring motion, gesture and cursor control to Android-powered Smart TVs.
