[CES 2013] Hands-On With The RCA 8" Mobile TV Tablet (Video)

Aren't you jealous that South Korea and Japan get all the cool over-the-air TV gadgets, while we in America are stuck in the stone age with things like "YouTube" and "Hulu"? Well, RCA's got you covered. The company's 8" mobile TV tablet - in TV-optimized 4:3 aspect ratio - is coming to the US in April for just $249, and does both over the air broadcast television as well as Dyle TV, which is also broadcast over the air and provides special content based on your location.

[CES 2013] The First Thing At CES I Actually Want: The TYLT Vu, A Wireless Qi Charger That Doesn't Suck

Wireless charging is awesome, but wireless chargers blow. They are so finicky. I have a Nexus 4 and an LG wireless charger, so I know all about this first hand: Take your wireless charging phone, put it on your wireless charger, and it charges, right? Well, only sometimes. The charging coil in the phone and in the charger need to be lined up just right for the power flow to happen.

[CES 2013] Sony Shows Off The Xperia Z And ZL In A Whole Slew Of New Videos

As you probably already know, Sony made the Xperia Z and ZL official yesterday at CES. David got to spend some hands-on time with both handsets, and shared his initial thoughts on the duo right here. If that wasn't good enough for you, though, then perhaps the metric ton of videos Sony just uploaded will get the job done.

Without further ado, I present to you: slews and slews and slews of videos about the Xperia Z and ZL.

[CES 2013] ZTE Reveals The 5-inch, 1080p, 6.9mm-thin Grand S: When Skinny Isn't Good Enough

It seems like every month we get a new world's thinnest smartphone, but Chinese manufacturer ZTE knows that's a mug's game. They've decided to go for broke with the Grand S, which sports a 5-inch 1080p screen (like all the cool kids do) and still manages to fit into a case that's just 6.9mm thin at the thickest point. For what it's worth, that makes the Grand S the thinnest 5-inch, 1080p phone out there.

ShaqDown Arrives On The Play Store - All The Mutant Zombies You Can Throw A Basketball At For $0.99

Well, that didn't take that long at all. Less than a month after we first heard about Shaquille O'Neal starring in a post-apocalyptic game that features mutant zombies (yes, you read that right), it's already released! The not-quite-sequel to Shaq Fu, a game so bad that people devote actual time and money to liberating it from existence, brandishes an entirely different gameplay style. Whereas the original was a fighting game along the lines of Mortal Kombat, this game is closer to the second week of Dikembe Mutombo's 4 1/2 Weeks To Save The World.

[CES 2013] ScotteVest Shows Off The Jacket Of The Future, But We Want It Right Now

We have long speculated what the future will actually be like: flying cars, livable space stations, intergalactic travel will be the norm – you know, all that stuff. Alas, none of those things have quite come to fruition yet, and I doubt they will in my lifetime. What may actually become a thing that we can have, though, is wearable tech. And I'm not talking about smartwatches and the like. I'm talking about intelligent, sophisticated clothing.

Don't Adjust Your Monitors: Google Just Updated The Web Play Store With Its Roboto Font Everywhere

If you fired up the web version of the Play Store today and everything felt a little off, don't panic. Google just decided to apply its Roboto font to all text on the site. Stock Android users will already be familiar with the typeface as the default setting for all written words on their Nexus devices. Outside of that family, though, it may be relatively unknown. Which is a shame, because it's beautiful.

[CES 2013] Hands-On With The Ginormous Huawei Ascend Mate (Video)

Do you think phones should be even bigger? Good news: so does Huawei. You've probably already heard about the Mate, but we got a little hands-on time before the show floor opened last night at CES Digital Experience, and, well, it's big. Really big. And yes, we put it next to a Note II to show you just how mind-bogglingly large it is.

Note: there's some artifacting near the end of the video.

[CES 2013] Toshiba Introduces First Android TransferJet Adapter For The Fastest Close Range Data Transfer You Might Never Use

Have you heard of TransferJet? We won't begrudge you if you haven't. It's a fairly obscure bit of technology that hasn't managed to work its way into many consumer products, despite first launching to the public back in 2008. So, consider this whole article a bit of indulgent dreaming when we tell you about Toshiba's newly-announced micro-USB adapter that can add TransferJet capabilities to Android phones. What does that mean?
