Shelly Palmer Radio Report – August 30, 2012

The IFA consumer electronics conference is in full swing and Samsung and Sony have made some huge product announcements. Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note II, which has a 5.5-inch screen, making it the largest smartphone ever released and one of the most powerful. It also announced the first ever Samsung Galaxy Camera, a point and shoot camera with a touchscreen on the back that runs on Android.  Not to be outdone, Sony announced so many new products, I barely have time to tell you about them. It announced three new Android smart phones, a new tablet, a small durable camera, and a new personal 3D viewer. One product took the cake as far as I’m concerned: an 84-inch 4K TV. 4K is considered to be the next trend in HD TV and Sony is only the second company to make a 4k TV available to consumers. Maybe something will stick for the struggling electronics maker.
