It's only been hours since the little black box maker introduced Roku-loaded TVs and now we're getting our first look at a few sample sets from Hisense and TCL. The sets we saw were of the 48 to 55-inch variety and were all accompanied by standard Roku remotes. The company's representative pointed

For the past few months most of the tablets we've seen have been running Windows 8, but at CES this week Android tablets have seen a resurgence of sorts, starting with two from Vizio and now the Iconia B1-A71 from Acer. It's hardly a flagship tablet. Quite the opposite actually: it has a dual-core

Metro PCS' first American LTE phone may be fast when it comes to download speeds, but not so much when it comes to basic functionality. The ZTE-built Anthem arrives next week at MetroPCS providers for $249.99 ($219.99 after a mail-in rebate), and it comes with an aging OS -- Gingerbread. Yes, when

Plantronics has launched two headsets at this year's CTIA: the M55 and M25. Sure, we'd bet dollars to donuts that piles of companies offer more bells and whistles but the M55's $49 and the M25's $39 price tag will likely garner some fans. The M55 features voice activated answering, 11 hour talk ti

Mattel's booth had all sorts of goodies for the children and the childish, including their Kid-Tough FP3 Player, Hyper Scan console, Pixel Chix doodads, and Kid-Tough digital camera. The Hyper Scan console is an unabashed bid for the Pokemon set, mixing cheap 32-bit gaming CD-ROMs with RFID-based

We had a disappointing first turn at the Archos 604 WiFi, since the exhibition hall -- for a consumer tech gathering, mind you -- didn't have any WiFi internets to latch onto. So we didn't get to mess around in Opera or anything fun like that, but the player is still a plenty solid device, and th
