All in all, the FAVI Boomerang performs and delivers. It absolutely beats out stock speakers in any mobile device. The major selling point is the way it handles and tilts tablet screens for optimal viewing.
Of course, one may argue that a separate speaker and tablet stand can serve the same purpose. But why have two devices when the Boomerang wraps it all in one? It’s convenient, and you can wear it around your neck. What? It’s fun.
Even if an encased tablet is too thick for the grooves, the FAVI Boomerang has muscle enough to hold it up anyway. The design works, and the speaker folds down for easy packing.
The FAVI Boomerang is a dual wireless Bluetooth speaker with NFC connect. It's a portable home theater for your iPad. Honestly, I was shocked at how fabulous the sound quality was when I tested it out...The expansion sleeve design of the crescent shaped speakers allows for easy adjustable sizing for the neck and viewing angle for the iPad.
The Favio Audio+ is a pyramid-shaped wireless speaker that can automatically amplify smartphone sounds. The device uses 'Set to Connect' technology; this means users don't need to plug their phone into the speaker or pair it via Bluetooth. Instead, they just turn the speaker on and set their device on the speaker to get it to work.
About the size of a phablet smartphone, the Pico+ stands barely an inch tall. It’s perhaps a bit large for a pocket, but certainly an easy fit in any carry-on bag.
Along one side you’ll find an impressive array of inputs: HDMI, microSD, and USB, plus a microUSB port for charging the projector’s 5,000mAh battery. This last is good not only for about three hours of runtime (according to Favi), but also for charging a mobile device like a smartphone. Yep: the Pico+ doubles as a portable charger.
The speaker does have an identifying mark on it which is Favi Audio logo on the front as well as the Set to connect icon, on the bottom of the speaker you will find the small speaker the two speaker grills on the side are part of a echo chamber effort followed by 3 lights blue red blue, The magic of this speaker is you don’t have to pair just make sure your bluetooth is indeed on then just place the iPhone charger down on the speaker in the coming weeks I will be testing this on Android phone and will be able to tell if it works by first guessing I am going to say NO since the pictures on the box are of a iPhone Looking to design I have tested something like this at CES this year at a larger scale so I’m glad to see a smaller product with the same concept this speaker indeed lives up to the fresh design in my opinion...
The J6-LED-PICO uses a DLP® chipset paired with an LED light source, meaning it has a long lamp life (30,000 hours to be exact). Resolution of the images are 854x480 (WVGA) at up to 85 lumens of brightness. This is bright enough to generate large images in moderate lighting. A 5000mAh internal battery assures playback time of 3+ hours on a single charge. With the ability to connect to devices via full-HDMI, full-USB, and microSD, the J6-LED-PICO is pretty flexible. However, it is the ability to stream wirelessly via Miracast, Airplay, and DLNA that really has us impressed. With all these features, it's easy to see why we published a video as soon as the package arrived!
We check out the Miracast wireless streaming capability of the Favi Pico+ J6-LED-PICO DLP pico projector. The J6-LED-PICO is perfect for gaming, web surfing, watching movies, and more...All from your Android mobile device!!
The FAVI Swivel Screen Portfolio Case with Bluetooth keyboard (hence forth known as the FAVI case) is my latest find. I know there are several clam shell keyboard type cases on the market for iPads, but this one is unique in the way it is designed. The FAVI case is designed to be three separate sections that all integrate into one to make the case a compact laptop like setup. The FAVI case consists of a Bluetooth keyboard, an iPad Air case and a stand that connects all the sections together.
- Larry Geisz
The Swivel Screen Portfolio for iPad Air will by no means render your laptop irrelevant, but it may help you replace it with your iPad for a few more tasks. FAVI Entertainment’s Swivel Screen Portfolio Case features a built-in Bluetooth keyboard, but that’s no big deal; many cases do these days. What’s different is that keyboard attaches to a rotating stand that makes it easy to position the iPad for the best viewing angle. Whether you’re sitting at your desk, in an airplane or on the floor (don’t do that…it’s bad for your back), and whether you’re typing, watching movies or playing games, the Swivel Screen Portfolio Case will allow you to position the iPad accordingly.
- Kirk Hiner
Don't let the shape of the Boomerang fool you. Although the device's crescent shape makes it look like a pair of headphones, it actually functions as a wireless NFC/Bluetooth speaker you can wear around your neck. Or if that's too much "jewelry'' for your tastes, you can set it on a table and use it to prop up your phone, turning the speaker into a micro-sized home theater. Either way, the speaker from FAVI Entertainment can deliver about 10 hours of respectable sound on one charge.
- Deborah Porterfield
The FAVI Wireless Keyboard gives the functionality of a full keyboard in a shrunk-down size. It’s slightly longer than most large smartphones, but narrower, and about as thick as one with a protective case on. It holds comfortably like a remote control, which is especially so when using the laser.
Although lightweight, the keyboard is pretty sturdy for what it is. I wouldn’t sit on it or hide it under something heavy, but it holds up against and resists mighty finger mashing.
- Stanley Goodner
Whenever I play music or podcasts in my kitchen, I use a Bluetooth speaker. This means first getting the speaker to talk to the iPhone, and then it means finding a safe spot in the kitchen where my iPhone won’t get killed by spills. The FAVI solves both these problems, by being a stand which connects wirelessly to your iPhone when you set it down on the cradle. The speaker appears to use inductive tech to pick up the good vibrations of your iPhone’s speaker magnet, and then taking that signal and amplifying it.
- Charlie Sorrel
When it boils down to your choice of wireless speakers, you would have plenty of models to choose from in the market at the moment. FAVI Entertainment has decided to throw their weight into the market by having a say in the form of a simplified wireless speaker thanks to its new audio+ Set to Connect speaker, so that you will be able to wirelessly play music in an instant. All that you need to do is to place your mobile device on the speaker in order to connect, and to disconnect, remove it. Apart from delivering a quick music-listening solution, the audio+ would also function as an inexpensive alternative conferencing solution for both offices and board rooms.
FAVI Entertainment has released a new speaker for smart phones and tablets that allows wireless connection to a device without the hassle of pairing. The Audio+ Set to Connect speaker merely requires the device to be placed on the docking space in order to connect to the speaker via induction. No fiddling with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi is required.
The FAVI audio+ Set to Connect Wireless Speakers uses “induction technology to amplify the sound of your tablet or smartphones’ onboard speakers. The audio+ amplifies your device’s speaker by 6x, while also adding treble and bass-booster technology, giving you powerful sound without the added frustration of cables or pairing through Bluetooth. Simply set it on the dock and enjoy up to 6 hours of enhanced audio.” The speakers have rechargeable batteries that give you up to six hours of sound from a single charge.
- Janet Cloninger
But if you want it to be even easier, you’ll want to check out the new audio+ Set to Connect speaker from FAVI Entertainment. With it, you can play music simply by placing your mobile device on the speaker. That makes it easy to listen to music, of course, but the executive in you probably thinking the same thing I am; with the audio+, your iPhone can instantly become inexpensive and convenient conferencing solution.

Have you ever shown a video at work? It wasn't so long ago that to do so, you'd have to call Ned from the IT department and have him lug a projector into the conference room. Now, whether you want to display a video at work or anywhere else, you can do so from your laptop or mobile device with a little assist from FAVI Entertainment's Wi-Fi-enabled Pico+ Projector with Miracast and Airplay wireless display.
Measuring roughly the size of a cell phone, this particular pico projector would have no qualms about planting itself into the side of a notebook bag, or to reside in a purse or in a backpack side pocket. Not only that, it wants to make sure that it can last the distance, which is why it comes with a best-in-class 5,000mAh battery that is able to run for a good 3 hours of continuous playback in eco-mode, while its power bank feature would also let you juice up your mobile device, both while projecting or when the projector is turned off.
The International Consumer Electronic Show 2014 is in a buzz with amazing technology unveiled in the event. Favi well known for Tele-products has recently unveiled a new pico projector called the Favi Pico+projector, allowing projection over a large screen using your smartphones, tablets and other devices. Identical to the size of a cell phone, the Favi Pico+projector fits easily in your bag, purse or in your backpack side pocket. - Aseem Girkar
Favi Entertainment has a new Wi-Fi-enabled projector with Miracast, and an Airplay Wireless display that syncs with mobile devices and laptops to project content on projection screens up to 100 inches in size. The company's new Pico+ projector, unveiled this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, is about the size of typical smartphone and packs a 5000mAh battery supplying three hours of continuous playback in eco-mode. - Damon Poeter
The Pico projector supports Miracast and Airplay wireless playback. The little pocket projector is very small, but can throw an image up to 100-inches in size. The projector is about the size of a smartphone. The projector can be used as a WiFi hotspot thanks to the integrated WiFi capability. It can also be connected to most smartphones, tablets, PCs, cable boxes and other gear via a HDMI cable. - Shane McGlaun
My Type: Whether they are playing video games or making a business presentation, the tech geek on your list will find many handy uses for the Favi Entertainment Wireless Keyboard. It features a touchpad mouse and connects via Bluetooth for easy control of smartphones, tablets, computers or even smart TVs. The intuitive key layout allows for fast and accurate typing while reducing hand and finger strain. - examiner.com
One hitch in the (Sceptre Speaker SoundBar SB301523) execution is the built-in Android interface, which moves at a glacial pace. Even worse is trying to navigate the web using the included standard remote. Because you have to enter a lot of text when looking for videos or using apps, you really need a keyboard. I tried it with a Favi SmartStick Keyboard Controller, which was a vast improvement. - Roy Furchgott
FAVI Entertainment has announced a simple yet effective solution for this new breed of “mini home theater.” The company says its FAVI Boomerang Wireless Audio Dock holds tablets and smartphones at the proper viewing angle, while providing stereo sound for music and movies. The FAVI Boomerang seems to answer the question: Why have two accessories for this application when you can combine them into one?
Think of the FAVI Boomerang like a set of headphones for your tablet, but with a built-in stand. The design of this speaker dock accommodates a wide variety of device sizes, making it compatible with practically everything out there. - Stanley Goodner
Favi Entertainment is expanding into personal audio with two AC/DC Bluetooth speakers, both with NFC. The $79 Boomerang and $59 Boomerang Mini, due in stores in mid-December, are single-chassis stereo speakers with a crescent shape that expands and contracts to grip tablets and smartphones. The Mini is meant for phones and adjusts to fit a phone positioned in portrait or landscape mode. The other speaker is designed for tablets positioned in portrait or landscape mode. The speakers also let users adjust the mobile’ device’s viewing angle when the speaker and device are placed on a flat surface. The models feature built-in speakerphone, 10-hour built-in lithium-ion battery and color options. The Boomerang delivers 2x6-watt output, and the Boomerang Mini delivers 2x4-watt output. - Joseph Palenchar
Converting your television to a smart TV, one that incorporates an Internet browser and allows Web navigation, is a bigger, bolder way to browse or watch YouTube, Google TV, Hulu, Nickelodeon and other content. FAVI Entertainment’s thumb-size SmartStick converts televisions that are equipped with a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), without need for cable or a set-top box. Use your tablet as a controller / remote after downloading your preferred apps, or purchase FAVI’s SmartStick Keyboard Controller with touchpad, a mini keyboard / touchpad that also has traditional TV controls. - Michael J. Solender
This really turns your TV into a smart TV. What I like it for is it’s like a USB and you can plug it right in, it’s small and have its own application and streams the media no problem and shares media no problem, have the internet browser as well….This one impresses me for its size and its affordability. Also from the same company is the keyboard controller…it does a great job with connecting to projector screen, television keyboard, and I have to say, for me, what is cool about it is the keys are a little bigger than normal and its backlit so when you’re in the dark you’ll be able to see it still. It gives you quick access to your video collection and all that kind of stuff. It’s great for presentation. That’s one thing I’m looking forward to trying out a little more is its presentation type aspects. - FOX NEWS
Nowadays all smart TV can connect to the web and run apps, but if you have an older TV you’re out of luck. But why shower hundreds of dollar on new TVs when you can get a Google TV set top box or just plug the FAVI SmartStick to your TV HDMI jack? Inside this small shell is a Wi-Fi transmitter, a micro SD card slot and USB jack so you can plug in this wireless keyboard mouse. The whole thing is running off a 1GHz processor. This little gadget is running a well skin version of the Android Ice Cream Sandwich. - The Loop
Pair this tiny, backlit keyboard with a touchpad mouse with your Kindle Fire HD, iPad, Samsung Galaxy, ASUS and other Bluetooth devices. Got a presentation? It has a built-in laser pointer, PowerPoint slide buttons and a wireless range of 50ft. - Chikka
The award-winning SmartStick turns virtually any high-definition TV into a giant Android tablet. Download apps for Flixster, Netflix, and Pandora, for instance, and you can stream your movie and music collections while traveling. Also access your photos, e-mail accounts, and favorite games, or surf the Web. Plug the SmartStick into the HDMI port of any HDTV, whether at a friend's house or in a hotel room, get online, and then use the wireless SmartStick Keyboard Controller to easily navigate around the TV screen. The silm and portable controller has four Android hot keys, a standard keyboard, and a tiny but easy-to-use touchpad. It connects to the SmartStick using a mini USB receiver. - Boston Globe
It may look like a fat thumb drive, but there’s plenty of Android OS smarts inside for streaming videos in 1080p HD or for accessing websites like Pinterest or FaceBook through a full-featured browser. The 4GB of internal memory can store games and other apps, but you can also wirelessly transfer content from your computer for viewing “on the fly.” - Tell Magazine
If you missed out on any Father's Day gifts this year and are still looking to scratch your geek itch, then I give a firm recommendation to get a Boa squeeze, the FAVI Bluetooth keyboard, or both! The backpack has sufficient space for all your gear (including the FAVI), is lightweight and tough, and the BT keyboard is perfect for any situation where a full-sized keyboard and mouse are impractical. - Nate Adcock
I don’t know how many Bluetooth keyboards I’ve got that I don’t use anymore. I don’t know how many HTPC wireless keyboard/mice/track pad things I’ve tried and ended up adding to the island of misfit toys where gadgets go to die because they were too bulky to use or have around the living room. I don’t even want to think about all the times I’ve tried to peck out emails on small phone screens. Fortunately my current job doesn’t require much time making presentations, but I do remember endlessly walking over to the laptop to press a key for the next slide. The FAVI Bluetooth PC / Tablet Keyboard and Presenter with Laser Pointer could step into all those roles with ease, and it’s small and light enough to toss into your gadget bag so you’ve always got it handy. - John Schettino
The SmartStick was very easy to set up, mainly because our TV had a USB port which we used to power the SmartStick. All you need to set it up is a power source, HDMI-enabled TV, a place to stick the IR receiver (to use the accompanying remote), and around 5 minutes of your time. Once it’s turned on you go through the typical custom Android welcome screens and you’re ready to roll. - GeekBeat.tv
#2. SmartStick: The SmartStick is "the smallest TV Internet device ever released," instantly turning any HDTV into Smart TV. An HDMI connector is built in, and the power supply comes through a mini-USB port. - Mashable
Theoretically, the Favi SmartStick should have unlimited streaming video options directly from the Internet. The included web browser or Google Chrome can be used to stream videos directly from online video websites including Amazon Instant Video. The Plex, PlayOn and PlayTo apps connect to online video streaming websites and stream the content to the SmartStick. Many network TV websites, free Hulu, and more can be streamed using these apps. - Barb Gonzalez
Dream Big Company of the Year: "Sterling Heights' Favi Entertainment, a local manufacturer and distributor of consumer electronics, is an exciting early-stage company that is on track to do big things," Oehmke said.

FAVI SmartStick: With networked Blu-ray players and other set-top options, it’s getting easier to turn your regular TV into a “smart” TV for access to content providers such as Netfilx, Hulu, HBO GO and so on. But perhaps there is no easier way to transplant a brain into your “dumb” set than with the Android-powered Favi SmartStick. It quickly plugs into any free HDMI port and powers on automatically. Favi FE02BT-BL: This remote is a perfect accessory for meetings where you need full access to a laptop or computer running a presentation or Powerpoint. It sets up in seconds and gives you a mouse trackpad and QWERTY keyboard control along with a laser pointer, all in the palm of your hand. - Rob Sabin

The FAVI Entertainment Smart Stick changes any HDTV into a device capable of using Google apps and multiple entertainment streaming services. As you can see up there, it looks like a flash drive, but that's an HDMI connector, not a USB. It allows the stick compatibility with your HDTV and opens a world of "HBO Go, Facebook, Pandora, YouTube, Crackle, Pinterest, Spotify, Twitter, Skype, Angry Birds, Words with Friends," etc. The device also allows the HDTV to access Netflix for its full streaming service. - John Scott Lewinski
FAVI developed a brand new device called that SmartStick that essentially can turn any HDTV with an HDMI port into a Smart TV.

If you are one of the cord-cutting, apps-loving, stream-swimming new breed that is disrupting the old order of expensive packaged programming bundles spoon-fed by bloated TV networks, then the SmartStick from FAVI allows you to bring Internet connectivity - and all the Google apps - to your streaming-deprived, non-Smart TV. - Dick De Jong
The SmartStick by FAVI is a neat little device that turns any HDTV into a smart TV. Plug it into an HDMI port on your television, run through the setup, and suddenly, you have full access to the Internet through your home or office network. The onscreen interface is similar to an Android phone or tablet with apps. It’s fully customizable, which means you can install games, listen to music, view photos and much more. Use it to watch Netflix (subscription required) or browse the web. There are a few apps that won’t run with the operating system, but for the most part, you have your pick. - Margaret Kavanagh
This is certainly the slimmest option on our list, since it packs all of those streaming features into a device that’s about the size of a USB flash drive. It also has flash-style storage, with 4GB and 8GB versions available. However, instead of plugging into a USB port, this device connects to the TV via HDMI. - Electronic House
If you were looking to upgrade your old flat screen TV with a new smart TV you might want to check out the SmartStick first. If your TV is still in great shape why not just spend $50 instead of $1500. A company called FAVI Entertainment can upgrade your TV for 50 bucks as long as your TV has an HDMI input. - MANjr
Top pick: Favi SmartStick Keyboard. Anyone who's owned a slide-out QWERTY keyboard will immediately find comfort in the FAVI handheld keyboard. Smaller than a remote, the keyboard includes a touchpad for an all-in-one typing and mousing experience. - Cnet
The way the SmartStick converts a normal TV into an Internet enabled Smart TV is great. Although the device has a special remote control friendly UI, underneath it is full Android and access to the Google Play Store is testament to the device’s heritage. When used with the wireless keyboard and touchpad, browsing the Internet, reading your emails and playing games is easy. The built-in media and music player work well with the remote and only a few taps of the buttons are needed to get access to your media. - Android Authority
Where I found the SmartStick to be convenient was in notifications and quick text replies (Google Voice). I like being able to tap out a message, reply to emails, clean up the inbox, and other things of the sort. The entire Google Play Store is available but your results with vary depending on the type of apps you want to use. - Chicago Tribune
This smartphone adaptation is a streaming device, a set-top box on a stick...The SmartStick requires an HDTV with an available HDMI port and a home network. It's designed for older HDTVs lacking Internet access, streaming movie services and other apps. - Chicago Tribune
