A look at the Logitech Type-S Bluetooth Keyboard case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S

17

For many of us (myself included), for a good tablet to be more than just a content consumption device, an equally good keyboard is mandatory. With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S — especially the larger 10-inch version — we see a tablet that can do just about anything we throw at it, and do it well. It's a perfect content consumption device out-of-the-box. But like any touchscreen device, actually working on the thing leaves a lot to be desired.

The addition of the Logitech Type-S Bluetooth Keyboard case makes all the difference, and turns your Tab S into a little workhorse.

HTC adds themes to its Dot View Case

40
HTC Dot View Case

HTC today updated the app for its Dot View Case for the HTC One M8, adding a handful of new options. The coolest probably is the addition of themes for wallpapers. You can choose one of the 18 included with the app, or add your own from your gallery, or by taking a new picture. Normal pictures probably won't look all that great, though, so you'll need to play around until you find something with the right detail. The stock images HTC has included are pretty cool, though.

You also now have the option to redial the three most recent calls, and you can swipe left or right to get more notifications.

The Dot View case, as you'll recall, adds protection to the front and back of the phone while allowing for functionality thanks to its semi-transparent cover and touchscreen capability. You can get the time and weather, see some notifications, and act on them all by swiping on the cover.

Thanks, brainimpact, for the tip!

More details of Samsung Gear VR headset surface

5

Virtual reality headsets are all the rage these days, and Samsung's long-rumored take on the Oculus Rift is now being projected for later this year at IFA. As far as virtual reality headsets are concerned, the Samsung Gear VR will bridge the gap between the complicated and highly immersive Oculus Rift and the fold-your-own Google Cardboard — this one apparently will dock the phone to your face.

26

Crowd funding sites like Indiegogo have spurred a tons of mobile-focused innovation, and the latest huge campaign looking for more contributors is called GOkey. The basic idea behind GOkey is being a bit of an all-in-one smartphone tool — a large key-sized device that is a battery, a charging and data sync cable, a device locator and a file storage device all in one. It's a pretty neat idea, and it's pulled in nearly $1 million after looking for just $40,000 to start.

Pressy review: The little 3.5mm plug that could

Pressy

The surprisingly handy accessory opens up a new world of hardware actions

Many of us with Android devices have tasks we would like to accomplish without looking at our screens, but which may not have a dedicated or customizable hardware button (and some devices don't have any hardware buttons at all). Many of us also have headphone jacks on our devices we rarely (if ever) use, particularly given the vast number of Bluetooth audio solutions. If you're in both categories, Pressy, a new Android-only accessory originally funded through Kickstarter and now shipping (first to backers and pre-orders), may be exactly what you're looking for.
