UMID BZ. 1 hour, Live, Unedited Video Review with JKK and Chippy. (Updated)

Posted on 26 January 2010, Last updated on 21 September 2019 by

Update: New, 4-part video’s are included below.

Thanks to everyone that joined the /live session yesterday evening. 600 pairs of feet stepped into the room and we had a lot of interactivity in the chat room which was great!

The first hour of the live session is now available on YouTube for those of you that missed it. Bear in mind that this is the quality that we stream out so it’s not exactly HD but you’ll get everything you need from it.

Specifications and links to more videos and reviews are available in the UMID BZ product page.

    Video seems to be broken. It lasts only four minutes or so, then is followed by fifty minutes of black screen.

  3. anon says:

    Confirmed – after 4:50 the video is blank, with any quality setting. It goes black right after the scrolling banner.

  4. quangDX says:

    yep broke for me as well,

    Is there a way to use the optical mouse for vertical and horizontal scrolling? For example, press and hold the Fn key and then drag your thumb across the mouse. Or was it answered in the video? I can’t seem to access it on my smart phone right now.

  6. Chippy says:

    The video does indeed have an error. Same in the source. I’ll re-edit and upload.
    Sorry and thx for feedback.

    Thanks a lot for this!!
    After a short stint with the Everun Note this is the only other device that really caught my eye.
    I really, really would need 3G on a device like this, knowing the backstory I understand it might have to wait until the Q3 model and possibly not even then.

    Please oh pretty please Chippy! Stay on top on news of possible 3G model!!!

    Gasp! You’re one of those people gadget sites talk about where they say “we couldn’t play with the device because someone stole it.”
