Cloud Media – Open Hour Chameleon 4K

Box of Wonders

Box of Wonders

Cloud Media may have their heads in the Heavens but their noses are firmly to the grind-stones as they produce yet another fantastic offering in the shape of the divine Open Hour Chameleon 4K.

Not content with simply offering media streaming solutions à la the Popcorn Hour range, Cloud Media are adding a few more cherubim to the choir, as it were.

Not only does the Open Hour Chameleon support 4K output for those of us with ultra hi-def TVs, but also features the ability to be used as a media player, a desktop computer and a games console.

The Open Hour Chameleon 4K comes with Android KitKat 4.4.2 installed out of the box, but Cloud Media plan to allow the user to be able to use up to 32GB SD cards from which to boot the OS of their choice, giving consumers huge flexibility.

This ‘box for everything’ looks to be the upcoming hot product for tech-savvy media consumers. Check out the Cloud Media website for details, and keep an eye out for release dates here on the blog and on our Facebook page.

sWaP Rebel Watch: A Cool Gadget for the Summer!

sWaP Rebel Sim Free Unlocked Mobile Phone Watch & Media Player with Camera

The sWaP Rebel Mobile Phone Watch & Media Player was in Sunday Express!

Listed as a “must have” this summer, the sWaP Rebel is a fantastic watch and mobile phone for all gadgets and tech lovers!

The sWaP is a rather unique addition to the mobile phone market and has lots of hidden features that will leave you startled, like the hidden camera, bluetooth compatibility, the FM radio and WAP! It is also open to most networks (other than 3). Thankfully sWaP included the Micro SD expansion as their on-board storage isn’t up to scratch with other devices, but this can be forgiven for it’s tiny size and spy-like design. No more bulging pockets with your mobile phone, mp3 player, wallet and keys, you will have a watch, a phone and an MP3 player round your wrist.

sWaP Rebel Sim Free Unlocked Mobile Phone Watch & Media Player with Camera – £189

AMP3 Sleepover: The Arnova 10…The Extinction of the ‘Shanpad’

I bet you are sitting there wondering what a ‘product sleep over’ is!? Well not to fear you are about to find out!

Here at AMP3 we value giving our customers an informed, open and honest opinion. How can we give you the whole picture if our staff members haven’t had first-hand experience with the products we are offering you? Well now we can! We are encouraging our staff members to take home and trial products for themselves, and every day we will post up our results right here on our blog

Elliot, our Sales Supervisor managed to grab one of the few Arnovas available on the market and give us a brief on the product.

Archos Arnova 10 Sleepover Review


  • A solid choice if you want an Internet Tablet on a tight budget.
  • Quick enough to run most applications without a lag.
  • Features a large touch screen for easy typing and navigation (less eye-strain too we’d say).


  • The built quality is not quite as strong as the Archos 101 as the body is largely plastic rather than metal.
  • The lack of a stand at the back means you’d have to hold the player while watching movies so you can see the screen (or pick up a case with a stand to remedy this).


The Arnova 10 is highly recommended for people interested in the emerging tablet market without spending upwards of £300. Feature wise you can expect quite a full packet with lots of room to expand with downloadable apps from Android.
Full review follows…

Hi there – how are you doing? If you don’t mind I’d like to borrow a few moments of your time to talk a little bit about the Arnova 10 Internet Tablet.

So what is the Arnova 10? Well it’s a new tablet device from Archos and by all accounts we’re pretty lucky to have them in at the moment as Archos are still considering whether to mass produce them or not. Hopefully they see sense and get these out into circulation.

Now, many of you will already be pretty familiar with the current range of Archos Internet Tablets which are out at the moment as they’ve been very popular with both customers and reviewers. But what if you can’t justify spending that sort of money on a tablet player? Until now you were basically left with the iPad knock-offs and all of their little quirks (I’m half-seriously hoping the term ‘Shanpad’ takes off to describe these…). Wait…there’s a knock at the door…oh hello Arnova 10 – nice to meet you…

I’ve been tinkering with this player for several days now and really quite like what I’ve seen so far. The screen is large enough for my clumsy-fingered brethren at 10” and while it may not be a fancy capacitive touch screen, like its cousin the Archos 101, the resistive screens really is good. However, I would say that if you were watching a movie you might want to consider using ones of decent quality to stop them looking a bit stretched.

Internet browsing is very simple and pretty quick over WIFI and those extra screen inches really help when it comes to typing so you can easily take the office with you while out and about (there’s a myriad of apps available for most work needs). You’re also given 4GB of flash storage for your music and films with a handy slot for a memory card when you run out of space. Plus if you get bored of working, watching films or surfing the interwebs then there’s always the forward facing camera to play around with…and of course downloadable games such as Angry Birds et al.

I suppose the moral of this story is: Want a large screen tablet without having to stroll down the scary woods-at-midnight road of the Shanpad? Then seriously consider picking up an Arnova 10 (there is a 8” version) – it’s pretty swish.
