Tech Report: Our 3 Favorite Products Debuted at CES


I have so much to report back to you guys from CES! There were so many new and innovative products that I can’t possibly talk about them all in one post.  So, we will break them down category by category. After seeing  a ton of new products we have finally picked our top 3 favorite products from CES: The Sony Xperia Z1S Cellphone, Samsung TabPRO and Mophie Space Pack. We loved these products for various reason but most importantly the products ability to not only keep us efficient but connected as well.

Sony Xperia

Sony Xperia Z1S

The Sony Xperia Z1S really does it all, I was literally blown away by this phone! After talking with the head of Sony Mobile Stephen Sneeden, I’m now even more in love with the Xperia Z1S. Not only is it waterproof but it has more memory. The phone has 32GB (T-Mobile) of memory with the option of expanding to 64GB, that’s a whopping 96GB! Gone are the days where you have to delete items to conserve memory on your phone. The Xperia boasts a pretty impressive 20.7 MP camera as well.

Now lets discuss the camera apps: Timeshift burst was my favorite, the camera captures 61 frames in 2 seconds allowing you to get the perfect shot. The AR effect allows you to add scenes and characters to your pictures, something your kids would love. Info-eye takes images from your pictures and provides you with relevant info regarding that subject. Say you take a picture of the Golden Gate bridge, it will pull up relevant info about the bridge. They’ve also included Social live that allows you to stream video, live to your Facebook profile page while incorporating live commenting and likes from Facebook friends. The Sony Xperia Z1S really is a pretty cool phone, they have even incorporated the new PlayStation app, allowing you to take your PS4 to new levels. The Sony Xperia Z1S was released January 13 on T-Mobiles network. I can’t wait until this phone becomes available on other networks, I will let you know the minute I hear something.

Mophie Space Pack

Mophie Space Pack

What if you had the option to not only expand your storage capability but extend you battery life? Life would be great right? Well, that’s what Mophie has done with the brand new Space Pack. If you are an iPhone user than you already know the frustration of not being able to add additional storage to your phone so you are forced to delete items if you reach your storage capacity, the Mophie Space Pack has answered all of our prayers. The Space Pack for iPhone 5/5S is available in 16GB or 32GB which is accessed via the Space app. This product retails for $149.99 for 16G and $179.99 for 32G. I have a regular Juice Pack and I love it so the Mophie Space Pack is well worth the price if you use your phone as much as I do. This product will be available in March 2014.

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO

I love Samsung Products, always have, always will! Recently, Samsung introduced the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO at CES. These 12.2 inch tablet allow users to view items in Full HD Mode and is set to change the game as far as tablets go. The NotePRO and TabPRO boasts a resolution of 2560×1600 and has more than 4 million pixels, making it the perfect tablet for every type of content creation and consumption. Get more work done with the Multi Window, it enables users to split the screen up into four different windows.  Cisco WebEx Meetings platform comes pre-loaded on both the NotePRO and TabPRO, it provides users with an easy way to meet with anyone, anywhere, anytime. These tablets take being efficient and getting work done to a whole new level. The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO will be available starting from Q1, 2014.
