Samsung Intros HomeSync to Bridge Galaxy Phones and TVs
Samsung today announced the HomeSync, a media center for consumers that runs Android and serves as a companion to the company's mobile devices. The HomeSync includes 1TB of internal storage and connects to HDTVs via HDMI. The user interface looks and acts similar to Samsung's Galaxy smartphones and tablets, which can be used to control the HomeSync. HomeSync supports up to eight separate accounts and can be used to store music, videos, and photos, as well as play that content on an HDTV. The HomeSync also allows Samsung device owners to access their stored content when they are away from home. HomeSync is compatible with any device that uses Samsung Link, including the Galaxy S4 and S III, Note 3 and II, the Galaxy Note 8.0 and 10.1, and the Galaxy Camera. It costs $299 and will be available from Amazon.com, Samsung.com, and Best Buy stores beginning October 6. Customers who register their new HomeSync will receive $50 in credit for content purchases in the Samsung Hub.
