Your new Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) is one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced phones you can buy.  TPU is a sophisticated material known for resisting abrasion, great low temperature performance, good transparency and elasticity and resistant to fingerprints.

Sony's NSZ-GT1 Google TV shipping now from Amazon

15

If you're in the market for a new Google TV, be aware that Sony's obtusely named NSZ-GT1 is now shipping from Amazon for a couple hundred bucks. That's still twice as much as http://www.androidcentral.com/vizio-announces-its-99-co-star-google-tv-set-top-box-onlive-wellVizio's new Google TV, and we're still not entirely sure where, exactly, the fate of Google TV lies with the likes of the Nexus Q nipping at its heels. But, hey, $200 isn't quite going to break the bank. So if you wanna check it out hit the link below.

Samsung Flip Case for Galaxy S3 review

46

If you love the feel of the Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) in your hand and are really only worried about the screen, Samsung’s Flip case might be perfect for you.

 

Most of the cases we see are designed to protect the back and sides of the Galaxy S3 in plastic, TPU, rubber or some material that cushions against impact.  Samsung has taken a very unique position here by designing a case that really isn’t a case at all – it is more of a “cover” attached to a replacement for the back panel of the phone.

HondaLink brings your Android smartphone into the cockpit, starting with the 2013 Accord

9

Honda's getting serious about connecting your smartphone with your car, and it'll be launching its new HondaLink system this fall in the 2013 Honda Accord. 

HondaLink follows in the footsteps of the Chevy MyLink system we demoed at General Motors' test facilities last summer in that the infotainment system uses the data connection from your phone but is controlled through the traditional in-car systems. Android smartphones will connect over Bluetooth, while iPhones can use Bluetooth or the usual iPhone cable.

Honda has teamed up with Aha by Harman to provide music, podcasts, news, Twitter and Facebook feeds, all of which are to be provided safely hands-free use in mind. Also on board are Pandora and voice-to-text SMS services, which Honda's already unveiled on the 2012 CRV.

The 2013 Accord is just the beginning, Honda said today, and that you can expect to see it on upper trim levels going forward. 

Hit the source links below for the full pressers, or check out the promo video after the break.

Motorola knocks $100 off the MOTOACTV price tag, hopes to help you drop some pounds

21

We have heard all about the Motorola MOTOACTV, it has been launched around the world, and updated countless times, but for many the price was what held them back. It appears as though Motorola may have realized that they came in a bit high, and that there was a bunch of competition in the market for a lower price, and they have decided to drop the price by $100. Now ringing in at only $149 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB model, the MOTOACTV is more competetive in the market, and hopes to attract some new users. 

Be sure to check out our full review of this great little activity tracker, and be sure to give it a second consideration at the new price point, your health will thank you.

Smartphone Experts Side Pouch case for the Galaxy S3

4

The Samsung Galaxy SIII (S3) is a beautiful phone. While it feels “sturdy” it still makes me nervous to just put it in my pocket.

Phones scratch, they get dinged and they can break. Having experienced the sticker shock of a new – full price – Galaxy S3, I would like to protect this phone when possible.
