MiniSuit BluBoard Bluetooth keyboard review

MiniSuit BluBoard Android Review EVGA Tegra Note 7

Last year we reviewed the MiniSuit Keyboard Case for Nexus 7, a well-designed tablet-specific Bluetooth keyboard. As it turns out, MiniSuit has more keyboard offerings for Android users. The cream of the crop is the MiniSuit BluBoard, a universal Bluetooth keyboard that works with Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

The BluBoard is designed for tablets up to 10-inches in size, making it quite a practical way to get typing work done on larger tablets. But it can also hold smaller tablets like my Tegra Note 7, as pictured. If you’re looking for a full-sized keyboard for your Android and other mobile devices, this might be the one for you. Head past the break for a closer look at the BluBoard.

Google Glass online orders are still apparently open

12

Update: Aaaaaaand it's gone. Google's store is now marked as out of stock. TechCrunch got details.

Last week Google Glass ditched the invites and went on sale to anyone and everyone for just one day. That meant that whoever wanted to snag Glass could do so without any caveats, like having to sign up for the Explorer program or wait on an invite. While the Glass page is currently showing the program as closed once again, it appears that Glass may still be available for purchase directly from Google.

Body Glove ShockSuit Case for the HTC One (M8)

Body Glove ShockSuit for M8

If you work hard or play hard, you need a case that allows your HTC One M8 take an extra bump or two. Whether you are working out in the field with mother nature, in the shop with the dust and equipment everywhere, in a squad vehicle looking out for the public or anywhere where your phone is going to take some extra abuse, the Body Gloce ShockSuit case is going to keep your M8 safer. The case isn't waterproof (though it is MIL-STD-810G rated), but when facing the mud, or sparks from a welder, or the door frame on your service vehicle the ShockSuit case will save your M8 from a world of hate.

Like most other rugged cases, the ShockSuit is a two-piece design. You put your M8 into the front polycarbonate outer shell — be sure to read the supplied instructions to make this easier — which also has a thick plastic screen protector that fared well against my keys. Once the front is on, you slip the assembly into the thick rubber outer housing. Then, your M8 is ready when things get a little tough. The trade off is that it's not the easiest case in the world to put on or take off — but you knew that going in when you bought a rugged case. The screen is still responsive even with the protective cover, but you will lose that incredible sensitivity that the M8 seems to posses in it's touch sensor. But it's not bad. Again, a tradeoff for ruggedness.

Trident Aegis Case for the Samsung Galaxy S5

Trident Aegis Case for Samsung Galaxy S5

Next up in our parade of Galaxy S5 cases is the Trident Aegis Case. This is one of those two-for-one deals (three, really) that provides a lot of protection for your phone.

Start with the layer of shock-absorbing silicone — rubber, really — that fits around your phone. Presumably it'll help against dust and moisture, too, though the Galaxy S5 is already pretty good at that on its own thanks to its IP68 rating. On top of that rubber skin goes a hard plastic shell — let's just call it an exoskeleton, 'cause it sounds cooler — that not provides even more protection. Some of the rubber skin is exposed, giving you some nice grip points.

Motorola Solutions makes investment in Recon Instruments

0

Motorola Solutions invests in heads-up glasses start up Recon Instruments Motorola Solutions (no, not that Motorola — the other one) has given a bag of cash to heads-up glasses maker Recon Instruments. Recon, whose Recon Jet HUD glasses we've been looking forward to for some time, didn't disclose the amount of the investment, but that it was enough to warrant a press release tells us it was at least marginally substantial to their bottom line. The investment will be "used to accelerate product development and to ramp up global marketing and distribution."

The Zens Qi USB wireless charging pad

37

OK, OK. Wireless charging isn't really wireless charging. At some point you have to actually plug it into something. We get that. And the Zens Qi USB wireless charger — as you might have guessed — does things just a little differently. It's powered by a USB port.

Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case for Samsung Galaxy S5

How can you not love the Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case for the Samsung Galaxy S5? Take one part simple TPU case — great for taking the brunt of the occasional bump and fall, as well as standing between your phone and anything that's trying to scratch it — and one part awesome Bugdroid graphics, and that's what you've got here. Just simple, easy protection for your Galaxy S5.

There's not much more to it than that. There are cutouts for all the places you need access to — the camera and heart-rate sensor, speaker, buttons, microphones and the like. You get a little bit of extra grip thanks to the fit and finish of the case. It's easy to put on, but not so easy that you have to worry about it falling off or anything.
