Antares Lamborghini
Published

Luxury Calling
Few luxury sports cars turn heads like the Lamborghini, so why shouldn’t the company’s phones do the same? Its all-new Antares Lamborghini touch smartphone runs Android 4.2 Jellybean and looks pretty darn sleek. Made from handcrafted leather and stainless steel, the smartphone is a lightweight design at only 13.5 mm thick and 136 mm tall. Though the 4-inch high-resolution display is smaller than most phones these days, it is protected by damage-resistant Gorilla glass, which is an area Apple has been failing in miserably. Inside it’s running a 1.5 GHz high-performance quad-core processor, with 2 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of memory (and a slot for additional micro SD cards), as well as a built-in Yamaha audio amplifier. It comes in a variety of colors including blue, red, gold, black, and more. $4,000. lamborghinimobile.com

Time to Play
If you’re the type of person who keeps your radio and iTunes library on your phone, you might consider picking up Sonos’ new Play:1 wireless hi-fi speakers, a classy addition to any room in the house. Unlike most common wireless speakers that kick out your smartphone’s jams over a Bluetooth connection, the Play:1 runs off a bridge that connects to your wireless router, with additional speakers you buy that sync to each other to create a network around your house. Meaning you don’t have to be near the speakers, you just need to be in your house on your Wi-Fi. Each speaker is comprised of two tuned class D amplifiers, a 3.5-inch midwoofer, and a tweeter. The controller app for your phone controls how and where you hear your music, and also centralizes access to your favorite programs, such as Spotify or Pandora, into a list. A single speaker and bridge will run you $199, with other sizes and colors available to add on. sonos.com

What You See is What You Get
The Sony DEV-50 Digital Recording Binocular takes video of what you’re watching, which is a great gadget for birdwatchers, sports fans, or adventurers on the Serengeti. Zoom in on your subject and choose between full HD 1920 x 1080 2D or 3D video (for use with 3D televisions). The DEV-50 features two Sony G-lenses, two BIONZ image processors and dual 1/3.91 inch back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensors. The DEV-50 also supports magnification up to 25 times. Several other features are included to help with stabilization, auto focus, a microphone and headphone jack for audio recording, and even night vision capabilities (calm down, paparazzi). Your videos can be saved onto a memory stick, or simply connect the DEV-50 to your smart TV via HDMI cable and enjoy your videos. $1,999. sony.com   Ryan Thomas
