Beacon personal cloud storage device lets users store and play their media from anywhere using their smartphone, PC, tablet or TV.

Users can access files around the home or on-the-go, and Beacon’s secure access rights make it a great device to share with multiple users.

Lenovo N308

Lenovo’s first Android home computer, the Lenovo N308, presents an affordable AIO desktop for those multimedia users who love apps, entertainment and web browsing.

The 19.5-in 1600X900 touchscreen desktop gives users everything they need to enjoy their favorite content. Running the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, the N308 comes with an NVIDIA Tegra quad core processor, up to 500 GB hard drive storage, a 720p webcam and WiFi.

Horizon 2 Recasts the Table PC Mold

Horizon 2 offers improved performance with smarter features like near field communications (NFC) that interact with a user’s other devices for a truly one of a kind digital content sharing experience.

Users can now access media from their PC or smartphone on their home network directly on Horizon 2’s display when it lays flat in Table Mode with the Aura interface activated. They can either use the new Horizon mobile app to shake their mobile Android device, allowing the content to “fall” onto Horizon 2’s screen. Or they can place the mobile device on the screen, which signals to the Aura dial to open around it and “pull” out content onto Horizon 2’s display. Also, users can edit photos and share directly from Aura to Facebook.
