Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Debuts


Hoping to capture some of that holiday tablet share of the pie spirit, Samsung released its Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus with a pre-loaded Media Hub. That provides access to films and TV episodes, while Social Hub connects to and updates social sites and flash games. In addition, the Peel Smart Remote TV app turns your device into a controller without additional hardware. A screen tap lets you find and watch your fave TV shows, then looks for new ones based on your preferences.

Ford SYNC Safer Driving Text By Voice


Kudos to Ford for using Bluetooth Message Access Profile in their SYNC systems. The latest version G1 V3.2.2 allows drivers to receive text messages by voice. The system recently added live operator assistance to its on-screen navigation, hands free calling, driving statistics and mobile entertainment. Chevy may get all the props for its commercial blitzes for OnStar, but some should go to Ford too since RIM has embraced MAP and companies like Samsung, HTC and LG will soon be utilizing it as well.
