No, that’s not a QWERTY feature phone you’re looking at — it’s Google’s earliest Android development device, the Sooner. While the HTC-sourced phone itself hasn’t been a secret, the build of Android on this particular specimen, obtained by Steven Troughton-Smith, is something few eyes outside of Mountain View have seen. As Mr. Smith notes, this isn’t the first public build of Android that was detailed in November 2007 (M3), but rather an earlier version from May of that same year. The non-touch UI is almost totally unlike what eventually shipped with the touch-friendly HTC Dream, aside from obviously housing Android’s basic framework and apps including G Talk and the like. We won’t spoil it for you, though, so hit up the source link below to see Smith’s full walkthrough and analysis of the device that once served as the initial development vehicle for Android.
Talk about broadening one’s horizon. Samsung took a break from pushing its connected HDTVs and Galaxy S line here at CES to introduce something just a wee bit different: a baby video monitor line. Yeah, seriously. The BabyView range is said to be engineered to fit into the wild and crazy lifestyles of “tech-savvy parents,” enabling proud mamas and papas to share audio and video of their youngster with friends and family via Twitter and Facebook. How so? It’ll log video onto a built-in SD card, which can then be offloaded and transferred — not exactly the most seamless process in the world, but hey, there it is. The whole line will offer night vision, two-way talking, sound / vibration alerts, a remote nightlight, SD card slot and networked support for up to four cameras. Hop on past the break if you need specifics, and look for the whole lot to land this spring for between $ 199 and $ 299.
