Ti-Vo slide QWERTY Bluetooth remote hits the FCC

Posted in Remotes by Conner Flynn on June 13th, 2010

A remote with a slide out QWERTY keyboard? This remote recently hit the FCC’s test bench. The Ti-Vo slide Bluetooth remote certainly looks odd, but very useful. But it’s only operational over Bluetooth.

It will be interesting to see how this fares once it hits the market. With no shipping date or price tag, we have no idea if this will be flying off shelves and into your waiting hands or sitting on shelves feeling all QWERTY with no where to go.

Acer Liquid Stream lands at the FCC

Posted in Acer by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2010

Acer’s Liquid Stream Android-powered smartphone has hit the FCC, which means that it will be entering the consumer market in no time at all. Word is that the Liquid Stream will run Android 2.1, but we’re hoping that will be upgraded by the time it’s released.

Some features include a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera with 720p video capture, and 850/1900MHz HSPA connectivity. Looks like we might be seeing it in October. The device is also known as the Acer S110.

Nintendo Wiimote RVL-036 clears the FCC

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on May 20th, 2010

Anyone would look at that image and instantly recognize it as a Wiimote. The Bluetooth device just passed through the FCC with flying colors courtesy of Foxconn. Not much detail, but there’s the new RVL-036 model number.

We don’t know what makes it so special, but we hope they’ve finally integrated the MotionPlus add-on into the controller. It would be nice if they made the design easier on the wrist too, but that’s just wishful thinking on our part.

Nintendo 3DS to be Widescreen?

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on May 17th, 2010

An FCC filing submitted by Nintendo and Mitsumi, appears to be for the new Nintendo 3DS handheld. It seems to suggest widescreen portable gaming. The image is likely a testbed for the Nintendo 3DS. The FCC report it showed up in is for its wi-fi system, but those two screens stand out.

The bottom one looks like the existing bottom screen on the Nintendo DS, but that top screen is widescreen. Keep in mind that this is all bound to change. What you see is used for testing. If that is a widescreen on top, then when the 3DS arrives, it will have a matching one below it.

FCC will let the MPAA disable analog outputs

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on May 8th, 2010

The Motion Picture Association of America has been trying to get a waiver for the FCC Selectable Output Control (SoC) ban since it went into effect — the ability to only allow content to flow from a HDCP protected HDMI port. There has been a lot of debate, but little or no action until now. The MPAA can now use SoC to protect high value content, but the FCC locked down exactly when it can be used.

Any movie that’s never been released on disc can be protected with SoC for 90 days. The FCC granted this because the content affected isn’t currently available to cable and satellite anyway. Consumers who own older HDTVs, without HDMI ports, don’t currently expect access to these movies. So for those with older hardware nothing changes, and for those with the latest, you’ll be able to rent newer movies from home.

Two PS3 Slim models hit the FCC

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2010

Some of you are no doubt still using that bulky, loud and power hungry, original PS3. Maybe the Slim didn’t get your attention. Well, Sony is still hoping that you want something in a slim according to FCC documents.

The two documents don’t go into detail about any of the changes, but it looks like these two models are physically similar to the current Slims that are already available. They sport Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi but that’s about all we know.

Creative readying first touch device

Posted in Creative by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2009

Creative readying first touch deviceAn FCC filing reveals that Creative’s first touchscreen media device will be called the Zii. The name alone implies that it will be powered by the dual-core Zii processor. The filing also shows an “HD camera” logo so it’s likely that this device will have the ability to capture video and playback in High Definition. Whether or not full HD is supported, we have no idea.

There is space on the side for an SD memory card slot as well. There are two versions of the device. The Zii and the Zii Egg. The Zii Egg is for developers.

To refresh your memory, here are some specs: Qualcomm MSM7200A CPU at 528 MHz and a 3.2″ HVGA capacitive OLED display, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and a standard 3.5 mm stereo headset plug. Apparently, the I7500 will support quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dualband UMTS/HSPA, Bluetooth, WIFI and GPS and includes 8 GB internal flash memory which can be expanded by microSD memory cards.

FCC confirms 3G SidekickBeen a long time coming, but Sidekick will be playing with the cool kids in the 3G club soon. The new device is waiting for FCC approval. Apparently the next Sidekick will be compatible with T-Mobile’s 3G network. The actual device is coming from Sharp.

Danger was bought by Microsoft in February 2008 and since then not much has happened. What this next device will look like is anybody’s guess, and how will the software compare to the competition? Neither Sharp nor T-Mobile have announced this device.

Vizio asks FCC to stop Funai from insane patent license fees

Posted in VIZIO by Shane McGlaun on February 23rd, 2009

Vizio HDTVVizio has rapidly become one of the biggest TV makers in America. The company announced recently that in Q4 2008 it was the second largest TV shipper in America beating out many of the largest global TV makers.

Vizio has announced that it is seeking FCC help against Funai Electronics to stop what Vizio calls “extortionate demands” for patent licensing fees being imposed by Funai. Vizio says that when the FCC adopted the digital TV standards in effect for the U.S. it imposed patent license agreements, which Funai isn’t following.
