Smart Phones – Global Tech Talk

Smart Phones – Global Tech Talk


Your Passport To New Smartphones and Accessories – Global TV TechTalk March 4, 2015 Mobile World Congress just finished this weekend in Barcelona where Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy phone, the S6, but Lindsay has some smartphones that have been overlooked.

Motorola Moto E


The Moto E is a smart phone that’s very low on the cost spectrum retailing at only $150. The phone features a 4.5 inch display, and boasts a battery life that will actually last you all day with a 1980 mAh battery. This phone is perfect for those who tend to keep breaking their phones, as it’s very durable with a water-resistant splash guard &Corning® Gorilla®Glass. The drawbacks is the camera is the best at 5MP and it isn’t NFC enabled for the mobile payment revolution brewing. For the price though, it definitely packs a punch.

Price: $150

Blackberry Passport


Blackberry knows what it does best- enterprise! The new Blackberry Passport is fully designed for productivity. It’s lauded feature is the touch-enabled keyboard, that quickly predicts words and increases your typing speed. The BlackBerry Hub also polls all your coversations into one place – email, text, BBM, phone calls, social media, the like- and then of course makes the whole thing smart. The Hub through data will learn which communications are most relevant to you and curate them. Blackberry took a risk on the large square shape, which is intended to improve readability which it does, but sacrifices user experience. The phone is a little more awkward to hold. Overall, Blackberry does bring a strong option for the busy professional.

Price: $700




With summer around the corner (or so we all like to dream), portable bluetooth speakers are always a must have. The Qube2 is a mere 3.1×1.4×1.4 inches and fits perfectly in your pocket. It is available in 5 different colours. The battery lasts for up to 8 hours of playtime, so either a party or at the beach all day this is definitely a great feature. It terms of using it- there’s just one button for all of your speaker needs – power, play pause, and pairing.

Price: $70

Bee Smart Diabetes Tracker


There are many innovations around smartphones and health, and Bee Smart Diabetes Tracker aims to help the 347 people worldwide who live with diabetes. Insulin injections and tracking blood sugar levels is a cumbersome part of every diabetic’s day. Bee Smart Diabetes Tracker logs the amount of insulin injected and blood sugar level. With a twist of the Bee Smart the information is stored, and with a press it is transmitted to your mobile device right away or later when you have time. It is all stored in a logbook from which you can share it with your family, friends, or healthcare provider.

Price: $80
