The Meep! Children’s Android Tablet Is on the Way

Toy manufacturers have played around for a few years already with creating eReader books and other devices that are designed to give children a feel for what it is like to play with the same kinds of devices that their parents own.

Educational toy creator Oregon Scientific has announced the existence and upcoming release of a device that will help bridge the gap between toy and sophisticated device. The one feature on the Meep! that is most likely to excite parents and ultimately interest children is the fact that Meep! will run on the Android operating system.

That’s right, the same operating system that is used to power the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Samsung Galaxy Note, the Motorola Xoom and the Droid 4 – as well as many other sophisticated devices – will now also be used to power your children’s playthings.

The Meep! is built for children who are age 6 and older. It will allow children to access music, movies, e-books and apps from the same kinds of developers who produce content for their parents’ Android devices.

Of course, security concerns are bound to rise up in the minds of many parents, especially considering that the Meep! will have Wi-Fi access. According to Oregon Scientific, parents will be able to monitor the Web usage of their children on the device, but we hope there will also be some ability for parents to block content from appearing on the Meep! children’s tablet in the first place.

The Meep! is being built to be more sturdy than some of the Android devices that you may own. It comes equipped with a rubber silicon sleeve for protection. Certainly the Meep! might provide a way for you to keep your kid from asking you to use your tablet all the time, but we’ll have to wait and see if this is something that we would actually invest in for our own children.

Motorola Droid 4 Reviews

As expected, the Motorola Droid 4 was released on Friday, Feb. 10 to the world. We have not yet gotten our hands on one of these devices, but several people have. We thought it would be useful to let you know some of the positive and negative things that they are saying about the Motorola Droid 4.

First things first, if you want to buy a Motorola Droid 4, you have two choices. The first choice involves buying the device straight from Verizon and paying $199 for it with a two-year contract. The second option involves buying the device from Amazon for $99 with a two-year Verizon contract.

Engadget reports that the Motorola Droid 4 is targeted more toward specific users who have become accustomed to the Droid’s QWERTY keyboard – and may not be the best phone for those who are looking for the smartphone that is the trendiest choice.

Droid-life.com reports that the Motorola Droid 4’s display is likely to disappoint – especially if you were anticipating a screen that was anything like the screen in the Droid Razr. While the Droid Razr includes a Super AMOLED screen with an incredible display, the Droid 4 reverts back to the same screen of less quality that was used in the Droid 3 and Droid Bionic.

The Motorola Droid 4 features a new design that is different from the Motorola Droid 3. This means that you should not expect that your Motorola Droid 3 cases will continue to work. You will need to take a look at Motorola Droid 4 cases to protect your new phone.

The Droid 4 features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor – which is the same that is in Razr. Droid-life.com reports that the phone appears to not be quite as quick as the Razr, although it still is fast.

It’s a Backup Battery – It’s a Charger – It’s Autonome

We’re going to let you in on a little secret. Promise not to tell anyone? OK, here it goes: Your smartphone battery life isn’t very good. Are you shocked? Yeah, we didn’t think you would be.

It is probably the worst-kept secret in the mobile world that as devices get more involved and use more data to do more things, the poor batteries that are being included in these devices have not been able to keep up. Sure, there have been a few bright points – such as the Droid RAZR Maxx’s 21 hours of talk time on one charge – but by and large, the world of mobile batteries has a lot of room for improvement.

Perhaps some of this improvement will come in the form of Autonome. Autonome is a device that is designed to ensure that your phone simply does not run out of juice during the day and it gives you ample opportunity to make sure that you are continually up and running.

Autonome – which is a concept smartphone charger created by Francois Rybarczyk – is a simple, yet sophisticated device. The device includes a unibody frame that attaches to the back of your Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Apple iPhone 4S, Motorola Droid 4 or any other smartphone and includes a power adapter in the case.

So, when your phone is running low on battery power, all you would need to do would be to flip up the adapter and insert the phone into the electrical outlet.

As if this weren’t enough, the Autonome also would include a battery pack that you can charge while using your phone. When you snap it into place on your phone, it serves as an excellent backup battery.

Unfortunately, Autonome is only a concept right now, but look for Autonome and others to build on this clever concept in the future.

Droid 4 to Launch February 9 or 10

If you have been impatiently waiting for the Droid 4 to drop – seeking for every piece of information you can find – there is good news: the Droid 4 is almost here.

Motorola and Verizon first announced the existence of the Droid 4 during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January, but both organizations have been fairly quiet about a possible launch day.

Although there is still no official word from either company, there has been a lot of buzz over the last few hours that the Droid 4 is going to launch sooner rather than later. In fact, the Droid 4 seemingly is scheduled to be released on either Thursday, February 9 or Friday, February 10, depending on who you believe. Some reports estimate that the device will be released on February 10 to coincide with the release of Star Wars Episode One in 3D.

As is expected of most smartphones of this caliber, the Droid 4 looks like it will be sold for $199.9 with a two-year contract with Verizon Wireless. The phone includes a number of features that makes it worth the price.

It seems as if you will be able to use your Motorola Droid 3 cases instead of needing to buy brand new Motorola Droid 4 cases. Both the Droid 3 and the Droid 4 feature 4-inch screens with HD displays.

The Motorola Droid 4 also will include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage. Just as is included in the Droid 3, the Motorola Droid 4 also will include an 8-megapixel camera and a five-row QWERTY keyboard.

Perhaps the most attractive feature included with the Droid 4 is its ability to roam oversees. In fact, the Droid 4 will be the first 4G LTE device on the Verizon network that includes global roaming capability.
