Verizon offers basic handset with Samsung Gusto 2

Posted: 22 Apr 2012 05:30 AM PDT

It still amazes me that not everyone has moved on entirely to the smartphone platform just yet, there are still certain quarters out there who feel that a regular featurephone is good enough for them. This just goes to show the kind of diversity that we humans are made out of, and it makes sense, too, as the per capita income for folks living in developing countries is not enough to purchase a smartphone unless someone does not spend a single penny of their salary for a few months.

Having said that, folks living in the US are not exactly going through an easy time economically either, and for those who want to save money in terms of a new phone, it is a good thing there are plenty of choices to choose from. Case in point, Verizon Wireless has just announced the introduction of the affordable and reliable Samsung Gusto 2.

The Samsung Gusto 2 is said to be an easy-to-use handset, allowing you to keep in touch with family as well as friends in a simple manner courtesy of its smooth and compact design. Come to think of it, we are so used with a candybar form factor these days so much so that clamshell devices are so out of vogue – so the Samsung Gusto 2 would most probably be a curiosity to your friends who lay their eyes on it. You are able to dial numbers and type text messages with its large contoured keypad, while it will also come with enhanced social networking capabilities that enable one to perform status updates on Facebook and Twitter in a jiffy.

Not only that, the Samsung Gusto 2 will come with DyVE (Dynamic Voice Enhancement) with noise suppression technology which will do its bit to reduce background noise levels and enhance speech quality. Other accessibility features comprise of a voice-enabled menu and sub menus which can verbalize basic features and functions such as incoming texts, contacts list, battery level, signal strength and more out loud to the user. Your eyes will also be happy with the large adjustable display font for easy reading, regardless of texts messages or menu options.

Other hardware specifications include a 1.3-megapixel camera with timer, brightness control and shooting modes (single and continuous); effects (black and white, antique and negative), one-touch shortcut keys for, a Sound Alert Mode, customizable directional keys, a 2″ primary display, Bluetooth connectivity, VZ Navigator and a Fake Call for you to get out of potentially sticky social situations.

Verizon has priced the Samsung Gusto 2 at $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new 2-year customer agreement if you are interested.

Andru the Android Robot USB Device Charger

Posted: 22 Apr 2012 05:00 AM PDT

The world of smartphones is largely divided into two camps – those who use Apple’s iPhone, while the other group relies on the Android operating system from Google. Microsoft’s Windows Phone, however, is gaining traction, although you can roughly say that it is not exactly as popular as the executives over at would like it to be. For the Android camp, here is the $24.99 Andru the Android Robot USB Device Charger which will definitely rock your boat, not to mention making a statement of intent to all and sundry who drop by your place, letting everyone know just which side you are on.

Andru will prefer to play only with Android smartphones, but he is also open to the idea of having other USB devices plugged into his noggin’, where his feet will then be connected to the nearest power strip or outlet. Andru’s eyes will also indicate whether the connected device is fully juiced up or not – his eyes will light up in blue if said device is still charging, or end up as white when it is in standby.
