Sony HDR-GW77V Waterproof Camcorder
Sony has just announced the Sony HDR-GW77V, also nicknamed Sony 77V, a camcorder that is built for “life on the go” as Sony would define it.

Bitrate defines how much information is stored per second to encode the video. Typically, the higher the bitrate, […]

Sony Handycam HDR-GW77V takes the waterproof route
Just like how oil and water do not mix, so too, water and consumer electronics devices loathe one another. It makes sense, really, but there are exceptions to the rule as usual, with some manufacturers preferring to beef up their products to be able to withstand being submerged and working perfectly fine – at least for a while. Sony continues this trend with their Handycam HDR-GW77V that is waterproof, allowing […]

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX200V Stylish 18.2 MP Glass Design Camera
Sony launched the stylish new Cyber-shot DSC-TX200V featuring a beautiful reinforced glass design, a look that will go well with your iPhone. With fierce competition coming from the high-end smartphones that now deliver high megapixel cameras with good lenses and sensors (Xperia Ion with 12 MP Exmor R sensor and Nokia Lumia 900 with Carl Zeiss lens), it is hard for point-and-shoot to remain attractive to highly demanding consumers.Beside the […]

At the recently concluded CES 2012, Toshiba paraded a fair number of new gadgets in addition to prototypes – and one of them is this waterproof tablet which can also be powered sans wires.

[CES 2012] I can predict that there will be a fair share of puns associated with the Pantech Element, especially when you consider this waterproof tablet to be in its, er, element against the competition.

However, such problems might not be an issue in the future, as the folks over at HzO have managed to come up with a solution.

Fujitsu Arrows Tab F-01D Android tablet put to the test
The Fujitsu Arrows Tab F-01D Android tablet was introduced earlier this year and was touted to be a waterproof device. Though we may never have the need to use the tablet underwater, I’m sure you must be curious about how well it holds up its end of the bargain when it comes to being submerged in liquid. Well, it looks like we weren’t the only ones thinking about it as […]

Meopad Aqua takes the waterproof route
[CEATEC 2011] Going waterproof is a big deal for gadgets, especially when it concerns smaller models like smartphones and portable media players since those tend to slip out of the hands of butterfingers like me and into the most unusual places such as a swimming pool or even worse, down the toilet bowl. I guess there is marketing and sales appeal in “waterproofing” a device – case in point the […]
