New device allows you to display PC imaging wirelessly to an HDTV, great for ‘real estate client interaction’ or webinars / RealtyGo blog |
The Altona AT-HDAir ($219) enables you to display content from your PC to an HDTV (HDMI or VGA connections) Completely wirelessly, no cables needed, much like RealtyGo’s Mobile Real Estate Application. The Device uses wireless technology to transmit content you are currently looking at on your PC (laptop or desktop) to an HDTV, within range. (needs to be within 30 feet but can transmit through walls).
Great for Agent-client relations in any real estate office or networking area. Review contracts or properties on RealtyGo/MLS/Realtor.com/Zillow etc not to mention the great value add for your clients, to have a larger display vs. huddling around your laptop or desktop computer in your office. With the prices of HDTV’s continuing to drop you could pick up an HDTV monitor/display for anywhere between $149 and $500 depending on how large of a display you want. Then simply put it on the desk next to you or better yet mount it on your office wall with a bracket that is adjustable and pull it out when you need it.
In the past this was available in lo-res but now it’s available in HD (720p) and it also will broadcast audio along with the video. You simply plug a small USB transmitter into your laptop/desktop PC (Windows only at this time) and then have the receiver located near your larger HDTV.
Great for the office – integrate this with a large HDTV in your near-bye conference room so Potential Buyers/Agents/Brokers can take advantage of a webinar together?
RealtyGo.co – Your Real Estate Listings Best Friend!
Special thanks to Max Pigman for turing us on to this new technology.
QR Code’s are Powerful and allows your Business information to dynamically update, while using the same QR Code in Print or any type of advertising campaign, even after the promotion is over or the real estate listing status has changed; ie- Sold, TOM, AWC, Pending etc.. !
Each time you list a property for sale, often times the next step is advertising. Your Client expects you to advertise their real estate for sale and do so in a reasonable time frame.
With RealtyGo you can list your real estate property and use our advanced software technology to promote and sell real estate while saving you money and repetitive/duplicate work load. If you typically print full color flyers, or even black and white flyers for your listings, it can become expensive, especially if a majority of the people taking the flyers are nosy neighbors or lookie loos that are just curious. There is also the inconvenience of monitoring flyers each day or several times a week to ensure they are fully stocked. If you have multiple listings, this can become quite a chore, much like baby sitting your listings. With RealtyGo we offer the ability for end users like Potential buyers, New Customers, Lookie loos, and other Real Estate Professionals to access your listing while standing right in front of them; or when seeing the listing advertised in a print ad (like the image above) or even from a digital TAG, advertised on the internet (like Criagslist,Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, etc.. ), not to mention all your other real estate listings as well, using Mobile technology. Now end users can use their Mobile phone or iPad, etc.. , and Scan or Text to get all your real estate listings and current listing information; photos, your professional contact info, your professional website and more, via any mobile device.
Lets say a Client wants to change their listing price, or has new professional photos they would like to add to a listing. If you have already run a print ad or sent out mailer/flyers in regards to the property, they may be irrelevant and out of date by the time a potential buyer or new customer contacts you about the listing. This could be detrimental in the sale of the listing and creates drop off or abandonment rate from consumers, even outrage in some cases if the change of information works against the prospective buyers agenda.
With Mobile Real Estate Listings and RealtyGo, you simply update your listing information within an easy to use log in area at RealtyGo.co and anytime a potential buyer, new customer or business professional access your listing(s), they will receive the most current information every time. This will reduce your printing costs and the worry work of potential ads running in magazines or newspapers that may not be up to date or as relevant as they should be, based on a change in the real estate listing information, etc.. . You can continue to use the same Mobile listing TAG even after a listing has sold. Simply reassign the Mobile URL within your login area to one of your “Other” real estate listing, enabling your Mobile real estate listings to always be working and relevant in regards to your professional real estate business, saving you valuable time and keeping operating cost low, maximizing return on investment.
RealtyGo enables you to run print ads and advertise your listings with a dynamic TAG called a Mobile Listing TAG, which can be placed everywhere, and will always bring back the most current and relevant information from all your real estate listings, by scanning the QR Code “Smart Code” or sending a Text Message for listing information. Once a potential buyer accesses any of your listings, any time you edit or make a change to the listing thereafter, an alert automatically goes out to the potential buyer, notifying them that a change has occurred to the real estate listing they requested information from, for instance a price reduction or offering the listing for lease vs for sale or vice versa.
Once the end user has the Mobile real estate listing(s) on their hand held mobile device, they can easily forward the listing(s) by text message or email, which gives your listing the ability to travel and be seen on all Unified Channels giving it the viral effect. A Husband can quickly access a listing, see photos, pricing, your contact information, then send it to his wife or an investor all in a few moments, displaying your listing efficiently and in a well organized professional fashion with all you contact info and professional business information. Potential buyers and other real estate professionals can even auto schedule an appointment to meet with your from within the listing, right from their mobile device, freeing up valuable time that you can use to network, focus on day to day activities and your real estate business.

LAS VEGAS–Remember the days when Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Intel ruled the world? Everyone used desktop or laptop computers running Windows software and powered by Intel chips. While there were alternatives (think Mac), most of the world computed with Wintel whether they wanted to or not.
Today, thanks in large part to the smartphone and tablet cavalcade, the world’s primary computing platform may change. Microsoft and Intel are relatively minor players in both smartphones and tablets, whereas upstarts Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) are leading the game. At the Consumer Electronics Show here, Motorola (NYSE:MOT) and LG took the wraps off tablets powered by Google’s Android 3.0, dubbed Honeycomb, and Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor. Though Honeycomb is not yet complete, vendors are promising to ship devices in the coming months.
Further, Research In Motion (NASDAQ:RIMM) is gearing to release its PlayBook tablet this quarter, while Apple likely will soon introduce an updated version of its iPad. And Hewlett-Packard has scheduled a Feb. 9 event where it may announce a webOS-powered tablet.
If consumer and enterprise users move the bulk of their computer use to tablets and smartphones–as some believe they will–then the relevance of Microsoft and Intel could fall into history.
“The future of computing is mobile. That doesn’t mean that desktops and notebooks go away, just that the growth appears to be in smartphones and other light computing platforms,” wrote Current Analysis analyst Avi Greengart in response to my questions on the topic. “Right now, ARM and phone vendors have a decided advantage over Intel and PC manufacturers. This is not only relevant for tablets, but for smartphones as well–it’s why Apple, Dell, Asus, Acer, HP, et al are all trying to become smartphone vendors.”
Microsoft and Intel are attempting to reinsert themselves in the smartphone game, though their efforts are still in the early stages. As for tablets, Intel is working to supply chips for the gadgets but silicon vendors such as Nvidia have managed to capture the lion’s share of awareness in the space. For its part, Microsoft has said Windows Phone 7 is not intended for tablets and that tablet vendors should instead use its Windows 7 operating system for their devices, despite criticism that the platform is not suited for touch-based tablet computing.
Interestingly, according to a Financial Times article, Microsoft is at work on a “rewrite” of Windows geared toward touchscreen tablets. Microsoft representatives weren’t immediately available to provide details on the reported effort.
“Google’s Honeycomb poses a much bigger threat to Microsoft than it does to Apple,” wrote Forrester Research analyst Sarah Rotman Epps. “Of the 24.1 million tablets we expect U.S. consumers to buy in 2011, the majority will still be iPads, but consumers looking for a cheaper, feature-rich alternative will turn to Google, not Microsoft.”
Asymo’s Horace Dediu took a broader view. In a post titled “This is the most exciting CES ever,” Dediu noted that PC makers have embraced platforms beyond Windows, and Microsoft has moved Windows beyond Intel architecture by embracing ARM Holdings. “These actions confirm the end of the PC era. Although most people would characterize the era as exemplified by a particular form factor or market, for me the definition of that era is the way the value chain was structured and hence how profits were captured.”
So what does this mean for the current crop of tablet and smartphone vendors? Despite evidence of a withering Wintel, it’s not a panacea. CCS Insight analyst Geoff Blaber told me that Android tablet vendors are already caught in a race to the bottom–a trend highlighted by Android tablets nearing the $100 mark–which indicates that vendors will have to innovate on the service layer to effectively compete. And they have a steep hill to climb, considering the work Apple has already done on the service layer (think iTunes and App Store).
Concluded Current Analysis’ Greengart: “One thing is certain: There is a rush to market here, and products that can deliver a clear and differentiated value proposition have a shot at standing out in the crowd. Slapping components together with a stock OS may work if you’ve got a time to market and distribution advantage, but that won’t be sustainable for long. There will be a lot of carnage along the way.”

T-Mobile USA is going to push its smartphone prices down in a bid to attract more first-time smartphone users to postpaid plans, the company’s CEO said.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, T-Mobile CEO Philipp Humm said the carrier plans to sell a number of devices running on Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android platform that retail for $100 or less. “We are working with our vendors on this one to drive the price of smartphones down,” Humm said, adding that not all customers want an expensive, high-end device.
The push by T-Mobile, the nation’s No. 4 carrier, highlights the efforts that all operators have made recently to push smartphone prices down and change their pricing plans to attract more first-time smartphone buyers. Subsidies by carriers have helped bring the price of some Android phones to well below $100. T-Mobile itself offers several such deals, including for phones like the LG Optimus T and the Motorola Mobility (NYSE:MMI) Charm. Sprint (NYSE:S) just announced that it will launch the HTC Evo Shift Jan. 9 for $149.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate on a new, two-year contract. Additionally, flat-rate carriers are offering cheap Android phones even without a subsidy. MetroPCS (NASDAQ:PCS) offers the Huawei Ascend for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and Leap Wireless (NASDAQ:LEAP) offers the phone for $140.
Aside from handset pricing, carriers are also working to lower the cost of smartphone data plans. AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) rolled out tiered, usage-based data pricing last year, charging $15 for 200 MB and $25 for 2 GB of data. Both T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) have followed AT&T’s lead with similar data pricing options.
T-Mobile does not plan to gear its entire lineup toward to the low end of the market though, and will still offer high-end devices. However, the company has struggled to attract postpaid subscribers. T-Mobile lost 60,000 postpaid subscribers in the third quarter, an improvement from 140,000 net postpaid losses in the year-ago period but a sharp drop from 106,000 net postpaid additions in the second quarter.
