InfoSonics Introduces the verykool® s758 Smartphone/Tablet Crossover

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- InfoSonics Corporation (NASDAQ: IFON) today announced the launch of its new verykool® s758 Smartphone/Tablet crossover device.

"Customer feedback to our predecessor verykool® s757 inspired us to design our next generation crossover: the verykool® s758," said Joseph Ram, the company's president and chief executive officer.  "We made a number of important improvements. The s758 is powered by a 1 GHz dual core processor and the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system with its refined and evolved user interface to facilitate a personalized mobile experience. We improved its ergonomic feel and design with more gentle curves and enlarged the capacitive touch screen to 5.15 inches. We still believe there are many consumers in emerging markets who do not have personal computers and can benefit from a crossover product like the s758 to bridge the technology divide. It enables users to connect to the internet via their service provider and browse the web, while still having all the capabilities of a wireless phone, including tethering. It also has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera for video conferencing, expandable external storage of up to 32GB and a multitude of connectivity and media features."

The Company noted the following additional details of the s758:

  • 3G HSPA (7.2/5.76) tri band (850/1900/2100 or 850/1700/2100) and 2G GSM quad band (850/900/1800/1900)
  • Connectivity includes Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, WAP, JAVA, GPS and USB port
  • SMS and MMS messaging plus push e-mail
  • Predictive text input
  • Built-in FM radio and MP3 music player
  • 2350 mAh Li-Ion battery
  • Speakerphone, proximity/light/gravity sensors, digital compass, torch and 3.5mm audio jack and stereo headset included
  • Hearing aid compatible (M3/T3 rating)

The verykool® s758 is available now and comes in two versions: a single SIM version for operator customers and a dual SIM version for the open market. It will be available in the United States for a suggested retail price of $249 (US). To learn more about the device, visit our verykool® website at http://www.verykool.net/Products/s758.

IoT is rapidly changing the way enterprises are using data to improve business decision-making. In order to derive business value, organizations must unlock insights from the data gathered and then act on these. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, and Peter Shashkin, Head of Development Department at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how one organization leveraged IoT, cloud technology and data analysis to improve customer experiences and effi...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
"My role is working with customers, helping them go through this digital transformation.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
