YouTube video provides modder-friendly phone details
Xtreamer, maker of media streamers and home theater PCs, has teased its first phone with a YouTube video and a sign-up page. The Xtreamer AiKi is a five-inch Android handset which, according to the video, will have Ice Cream Sandwich installed with root access enabled, along with the claim that it will "reinvent smartphone pricing."
Hardware improved with new components
Xtreamer has announced that its Prodigy media streamer has been revamped with a variety of new features. The device is now claimed to be the first media player to support 3D video streaming via HDMI 1.4, while the new UI takes advantage of HTML5 and PHP/SQLite standards for third-party developers. The interface is said to closely resemble the HTPC experience on computers.
Xtreamer Prodigy media streamer has AirPlay, more
Xtreamer has just introduced a new media streaming hub called the Prodigy. The advanced device sports a Realtek 1185 chipset and has USB 3.0 ports. A sharp break, however, is its unique combination of seemingly conflicting technology. It combines an Adobe Flash-based user interface with support for Apple's remote AirPlay streaming as well as Mediafly, Google Talk, Netflix, Last FM, Pandora and Facebook, among others.
