First Android-Powered Headsets Coming from NOX

Headquartered in California, NOX Audio is a startup, which debuted its first products NOX Specialist, NOX Negotiator and NOX Scout, in 2010. The company has recently announced the two innovative products, Admiral and Admiral Touch, the first TruWireless headsets, which are expected to be launched in late 2011.
Both headsets feature 7.1-channel surround sound with mobile Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and enable full wireless audio and communication on game consoles.
In addition, the Admiral Touch also includes a 2.4-inch LCD touch screen with gesture control, powered by Google’s Android mobile platform.
“When NOX was developing the Admiral, we considered all available technology to create a truly revolutionary – yet easy-to-use – product that pushes the limits and takes headset listening to a new level, for an attainable price,” said Julie Ma, president of NOX Audio.
“In addition to giving the Admiral high-quality audio reproduction and 7.1-channel surround sound, we included a ‘Touch’ version with the functionality of the Android OS to make the headset truly versatile. The Admiral is a product like no other, and CES is the perfect venue for us to introduce it to the public,” added Julie Ma.
Thanks to the included Android operating system, the Admiral Touch headset is capable of streaming music through Pandora. Unfortunately, due to licensing constraints, Pandora Internet Radio cannot be accessed by listeners located outside of the U.S. anymore.
Furthermore, the Admiral Touch headset is fully compatible with VoIP applications such as MSN chat and Skype, thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
According to the manufacturer, the removable and rechargeable Li-Ion battery included in the sales package, provides more than five hours of battery life for optimal usage with any compatible product.
A functional prototype of the Admiral Touch has been showcased at CES 2011, in Las Vegas.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
