Watch Free TV on Android Devices

We all love to watch TV, whether it is sports, reality TV or high drama and now watching TV on an android device is possible.

iDTV allows free Live TV on Adroid

iDTV allows free Live TV on Adroid

Watching TV on an ipad or iphone has been available for a while and now  support for Android devices is also available.
The iDTV S for Android devices works much the same as for the ipad and iphone version but with the micro USB port connector, and like the iOS version there is no streaming of TV over a mobile network,  no internet connection, no wifi connection required and most importantly no data usage on your mobile plan.
Unlike other mobile TV products, this has a very simple set up.   Download the free Android APP which supports the iDTV S and provides an easy to use interface for watching, scrolling thru channels and recording your favourite shows all whilst on the go.    Once connected users can tune into Standard definition Australian TV channels which is done automatically when the app is first launched.

Of course like any Free to Air TV, users must be in a good DVB-T reception area.   We tested a number of Android Handsets, Samsung S3 and S4 and Note 2 and received great coverage outdoors.   The iDTV S also works on HTC One X , Plus and the Sony Xperia viewing was outstanding.  Some of the Android tablets as are great to use the Idtv S with, of course check the specs to see if your device is compatible.

A couple of key features you must have on your Andriod device to ensure viewing include support for dual-core CPU and Neon support in the device , Android 4.0.3 (“Ice Cream Sandwich”) or later and the android device must also support USB OTB.  Of course you will need DTT / Freeview  / DVB-T coverage

Supertooth HD: Communications on the Move

Supertooth HD Car Speaker Phone

Buy yours today from Mr Mobile and we’ll ship it tomorrow.

Driving down the freeway on a beautiful Spring day, music pumping through the stereo and the phone rings. I fumble for my headset, desperately trying to get to it before the all important caller hangs up. Miss the call and then can’t ring back (because I’d never use my phone in the car!). The all-important caller was Steve from Mr Mobile (a valued client!).

After telling him of my telephone woes in the car he told me all about the brand new Supertooth HD: the most powerful bluetooth car speakerphone on the market. I’m always pretty dubious about these claims, but having had a couple of long car trips in the last week, and a good opportunity to test out this little unit, I am mightly impressed.

Here’s why:

  1. Total voice activation allows me to do multiple tasks, all just using my voice. I can make outgoing calls and answer, reject or ignore an incoming call.
  2. A voice announces who the caller is if they are in my phone book. I can screen calls without ever taking my hands off the steering wheel or eyes off the road. It comes with 6 different languages too!
  3. Up to 8 devices can pair to the unit at a time. This includes 2 phones, GPS and MPS players. Anything that is bluetooth enabled. 
  4. Music streaming through the high powered speakers. This little unit fits nicely in my handbag when I’m not in the car and I can use it as a speaker set for my iPhone or iPad. Very handy and great quality sound!
  5. Multiple charging options allow me to either charge it through the lighter in the car or via USB cord to my computer.
  6. For the very tech savvy – it syncs with all sorts of applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Evernote. I can also compose email and text messages and it will read them out to me too! As a social media specialist, that means I can post, tweet and plan on the road, all through voice activation. Amazing!

This good looking little unit clips to my sun visor with a magnetic metal clip, making it easy to remove if I want to take it with me. This device has changed my life! My car is now my office and I get so much done on the road. But more importantly, it means I’m never tempted to touch my phone in the car, making me safe and sound…….and connected on the move!

Whether you have an iPhone, Blackberry, HTC or other bluetooth enabled device: Buy yours today from Mr Mobile for the special price of $119.95 and we’ll ship it tomorrow. We’ll have you hands free in no time.
