ZAGGbox, ZAGGsparq, App Space -- TiPb @ CES 2010

ZAGGbox, ZAGGsparq, App Space -- TiPb @ CES 2010

ZAGG, the makers of Invisible Shield, have diversified in a big way with their ZAGGbox video recorder, ZAGGsparq battery charger, and AppSpace service.

ZAGGbox pulls in all your analog video (including HD via component), gives you fast switching via a unified remote, and renders iPhone-compatible video you can send right to your device.

ZAGGsparq is a massive battery charger that re-charge an iPhone 4 times before it runs out of juice, and since it has 2 USB ports, it can charge your Bluetooth or any other compatible gadget at the same time.

AppSpace is an application discovery engine where you can go online to try and sort through the App Store's massive catalog and find more of the stuff you like. It also supports Android, with BlackBerry, Palm, and Symbian coming soon.

Video of all three, after the break!

From Safari Pad to iPhone and Back Again

Many of the latest rumors about the Apple iTablet/iSlate involve it being a large iPhone, or as Daring Fireball points out, the iPhone being a smaller version of an older Apple tablet project. Way back in June of 2007, the New York Times mentioned just that, and the tablet project was Safari Pad:

Motorola Portable Bluetooth Car Speakerphone T305 for Hands-free iPhone 3G/3GS Talking

Here in the great state of Illinois we kicked off the new year with a law that prohibits anyone talking on their cell phones (or iPhones!) while driving a vehicle -- unless they use a Bluetooth device. Now I am not not sure about your state laws but if you are in the same boat as I am, why not take a look at the Motorola Bluetooth Car Speakerphone T305? [$44.95 - iMore Store Link</a]

iType Physical Keyboard for iPhone Gets the Ultimate Test -- TiPb @ CES 2010

iType Physical Keyboard for iPhone Gets the Ultimate Test -- TiPb @ CES 2010

Ion's iType is a full sized -- full. sized. -- keyboard for the iPhone or iPod touch that comes bundled with an App Store app for easy text input. Output is another story -- given the iPhone's app sandboxing, you have to email or copy and paste the text into other apps. Ion is open to letting other apps use their hardware, however, so if Apple doesn't get it together and offer standardized keyboard dock and BT protocols, and something like a Finger App to share document content, we're hoping third parties can get at least part of it done themselves.

They also make a piano/synthesizer style iDiscover keyboard as well.

But enough philosophy, let's get physical with the keyboard. And who better to try perform the ultimate typing test than our best frenemy CrackBerry Kevin. He puts it through its paces in the video below. Check it out after the break, and let us know what you think.

BGR: No iPhone OS Updates Recently Because it Would Reveal Tablet Info?

The Boy Genius claims, based on info from a source who's proven reliable before, that we haven't gotten an iPhone OS update recently (oh, hai still missing iPhone 3.2!) because:

there’s too much tablet-related code/references in the OS and Apple obviously didn’t want that to leak.

iPhone App Store Economy Even More Massive Than This Visualization

Think this GigaOm visual representation of the iPhone and iPod touch App Store Economy is massive? Check out that economy itself. (And we're guessing there are far more devices on the market now, given how 50 million was nearly 2 quarters ago).

Microsoft Windows Phone HTC Touch Pro 2, HD2 Hands-on Video -- Smartphone Round Robin

Microsoft Windows Phone HTC Touch Pro 2, HD2 Hands-on Video -- Smartphone Round Robin

Week 4 of the 2009 Smartphone Round Robin brings me face-to-big-glass-face with our most ancient nemesis -- Microsoft's Windows Mobile Phone, this year spawning the killer keyboard of the HTC Touch Pro 2, and the monstrous hardware of the HTC HD2. Yes, that's 2 times HTC version 2 devices and to help me out, I've got the dark lord of WMExperts himself, the one and only WMExperts Phil Nickinson to show me the ropes -- and quite honestly to help me lift that ginormous HD2 onto the table!

Remember, every day you post on my WMExperts Forums thread, you're entered for a chance to win the Windows Phone of your choice. (And there's a total of 6 smartphones up for grabs -- one per SPE site -- so check them all out!)

This week also brings the yin to my yang, the productivity to my play, my best frenemy forever, CrackBerry Kevin back to TiPb and the iPhone he claims never to use. Head on over to the TiPb forums and help him out, would you? (i.e. show him some neat new games). And get a chance to win an iPhone 3GS for your troubles.

Video hands-on with the Touch Pro 2 and HD2 after the break!

Dear Facebook -- Please Fix Facebook 3.1.1 for iPhone and Soon

Facebook 3.1 brought the much-in-demand push notification service to the iPhone's most popular social networking app, but no good deed goes unpunished, and along with broken push, it also brought a host of problems. Now, not everyone is having the same problem, but a lot of you have told us about one or more of the following:

Apple's App Approval Process Getting Speedy

TUAW recently remarked that the App Store approval process seemed to be working much faster lately. TiPb has been in contact with numerous application developers and the general overall feel we are getting is that it's true -- Apple is finally coming around when it comes to the app approval process. Much has been said about Apple and their App Store over the past few years but things have seemingly changed for the better.

Once again, the tech-blog hype has been off the charts, and once again the iPhone 3GS is being used as the great comparison. Fine then, let's compare!

If you're interested in either Apple's iPhone 3GS or Google's Nexus One, here are some points to consider...

The past few days our inbox has been flooded with emails from you, our readers, letting us know that you've experienced significant increases in AT&T 3G data speeds.
