Polaroid Snap Touch: Your Next Generation Instant Print Digital Camera

polaroid snap touch20170111_094806

Polaroid, the mother of instant print cameras is back with the next generation digital camera Snap Touch.

While the market celebrated the analog instant print cameras these past few years – its novelty didn’t really stick, with me, at least. I received at least a couple of those analog instant print cameras. They were exciting for at least two minutes, but that’s it. I quit snapping as soon as I realized – what’s the point of capturing moments, when I can’t store them digitally, in this digital age! It was stone age fun, to be honest. We have long bid adieu to jurassic technology, as far as I know.

I super love that I recently got my hands on a spanking new Polaroid Snap Touch! Before I get ahead of myself, allow me to share the specifications of my new toy. (more…)

Award-winning Sleek Design

The Acer Liquid Jade Primo features Acer’s award-winning Liquid Jade design language with a sleek and slim profile, curved back cover that fits comfortably in the hand and ergonomic 2.5D Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen. The rear and front covers feature a fine hairline-brushed finish, while a sharp diamond-cut band wraps the chassis and gives the smartphone an even more polished look. The cohesive circular-shaped receiver, rear camera, and speaker inherited from the Jade family add a touch of elegance.

Multitasking Multiplied

With a USB Type-C monitor, wireless display accessories or the Display Dock, the Liquid Jade Primo can provide a PC-like experience on an external display with Windows 10 universal apps. It can be used as a touchpad and virtual keyboard or a keyboard and mouse can be connected for multitasking on both the screen and on the external display. With these, simply connect the Liquid Jade Primo to any TV or monitor at hotels or anywhere. This is perfect for on-the-go executives so they can just simply leave their heavier laptops at home. You can also project presentation decks to a projector or large screen while displaying the “Presenter View” on the Acer Liquid Jade Primo, or play videos on the TV while using other apps simultaneously.

The Acer Liquid Jade Primo Desktop Kit includes: Jade Primo Uit, Display Dock, Wireless KB and Mouse and Free Flip Cover

The Liquid Jade Primo features a stunning 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display that supports 100 percent of the NTSC color gamut, with 10000:1 contrast, and 176-degree wide-viewing angles. A hexa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 808 processor, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory provides powerful performance needed for multitasking, while LTE Cat. 6 and 802.11ac MIMO connectivity options make downloads a snap. The 21MP f/2.2 auto-focus rear camera has dual LED flash and supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160) video recording and the 8MP f/2.2 front-facing camera boasts a wide-angle of up to 84-degrees, while supporting up to Full HD 1080p video recording.

Engineering Excellence

To reduce the heat that resource-intensive multitasking brings, the Liquid Jade Primo features an advanced cooling system that efficiently dissipates the heat from the processor, while also reducing the overall rear surface temperature.

For a slimmer chassis, the Liquid Jade Primo’s antenna is formed by laser direct structuring (LDS) technology, allowing integration of the antenna and back cover. Also contributing to the slimmer profile is on-cell touch technology, which moves the touch layer onto the outer glass surface of the screen, eliminating the touch substrate layer.

Gadget Feature: EnGenius N900 Cloud Router and EnShare

Ever since I started blogging and working from home in 2007, aside from the many issues we’ve had with unreliable internet providers, there’s also this challenge of access to my files, since I was plenty limited by the capacity of my flash drive when I’m mobile. My 1TB hard drive isn’t exactly too handy to lug around with. While Dropbox might have been around since 2007, it wasn’t until late 2009 when I signed up and even then the 10GB cap on files transferred via the website is just not enough.

Fast forward to 7 years, our local internet providers haven’t really changed a great deal. It has become so frustrating that as I come to think of it, we have actually shifted to 5 different internet provider since. Of course, that’s always with the hope that the recent one is better than the former. ISPs have become so unreliable that we actually have to subscribe to 2 providers until now for back up reason.

Both issues that are prevalent for a blogging family like ours were pretty much addressed in the EnGenius launch I attended last week. The Taiwanese nationals introduced EnGenius Intelligent Platform for Extending Home Network Resources. True to their name, the innovations that they have come up with are very impressive.
