Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, June 12, 2012

  Does your tablet have a DVD player?  It can now.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     It’s called the Optical Smart Hub, a neat new gadget from Samsung that is a portable DVD drive and more.  With built in WiFi…it can connect to tablets and smartphones and external hard drives connect via USB.   Samsung Electronics’ Optical Products Senior Marketing Manager Maverick Choi…

“If you just insert your disc or you connect your external HDD to this Optical Smart Hub, than those files will be played on your tablets or smartphone.  If you have iPhone, iPad or and Android tablet or Android phones, then please download the mobile Smart Hub app, it’s free on the market.”

The Smart Hub does need an AC power source, but could be plugged into a car with a converter.  Then up to four kids or grown ups could be watching  streaming content at the same time.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
