SBN Tech bringing new Android videophone to CES

CES is a magical time of the year for geeks with new gadgets and gizmos hitting the market in force. Some of the gadgets are junk that we just don’t want and others are really cool products that try to forge new markets. A company called SBN Tech has announced that it will be bringing a new video phone to CES 2011 that runs the Android OS that sounds more like a tablet to me.

The phone is called the IP Video Phone and will provide features that are sort of like those of a tablet computer. It will offer Skype, email, Think-Free Office apps, Twitter and Facebook integration, plus access to YouTube and internet radio along with a lot more.
The video phone has a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 and it has a front mounted camera for video calls. The company isn’t specific on which version of Android the machine runs citing Android 2.x as the OS. It has a SD card slot for storage and a kickstand on the back for propping it up. Pricing and availability are unknown at
 this time.

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.
