Recently Consumer Electronics (CE) market is flooded with many MHL enabled devices. But what exactly is MHL and why do we need it??
Basically MHL stands for Mobile High-definition Link and is developed by MHL Consortium – which includes Nokia, Samsung, Silicon Image, Sony, and Toshiba. They have defined a standard through which users can connect their Smartphones, Tablets, and other devices to an HDTV.
Using MHL, users can stream the content of their Smartphone or other MHL-enabled devices to an MHL- supported TV. This can be achieved by connecting your Smartphones to the TV using a MHL cable. The MHL cable comes with a MicroUSB connector at one end and an HDMI connector at the other. Users need to connect the MicroUSB connector to their Smartphone and the HDMI connector to the TV’s HDMI input for streaming the contents.
As information fills tech news portals with the benefits of smartwatches, the demand for these wearable devices heightens as various top mobile manufacturers are entering the launch stage with their own piece of smart technology. Based on a report by Transparency Market Research last year, there will be a huge growth in the adoption of wearables worldwide this year which will continue to rise until 2018. Its market value will reach $5.8 billion in the next three years. Although the forecast said that there would be a steady growth in the adoption of these devices, the main issue of most consumers was regarding which brand to choose. In this article, we’ll cite the top brands that are dominating the wearable arena this year and their devices that are set to revolutionize the smart tech market in 2015.
For most people, the most essential device that they have with them 24/7 is their mobile. It makes a lot of sense – with this pocket-sized device you can do pretty much everything to run your life – pay bills, send emails, surf the internet, manage your diary. You might even use it to make a call now and then!
But for many mobile phone owners, there’s one activity that is really beginning to dominate – and that’s gaming. With the developments of better screens and more powerful processors, mobile gaming really has taken off in recent years. It’s logical that we’ll begin to use the phone as our main gaming device – most people only have time to do gaming on an incidental basis, and it’s much easier to pull your phone out of your coat or bag than to turn on the PC, or start up the console to play.
