TCL NXTWEAR AIR promises to fix the worst thing about wearable displays

No, the NXTWEAR AIR isn't an AR device.

What you need to know

  • TCL's new NXTWEAR AIR wearable display glasses are designed for comfort and portability.
  • The NXTWEAR AIR features dual 1080p Micro OLED screens with a 47 pixels-per-degree resolution for a "cinema-like level of clarity."
  • The glasses are compatible with over 100 smartphones and can also be used as a second screen when paired with a laptop.

TCL expanded its wearables lineup at CES 2022 with the launch of the new NXTWEAR AIR. The company's second-generation wearable display glasses tout a more comfortable fit and happen to be 30% lighter.

Just like the NXTWEAR G glasses that the company announced last year, the new NXTWEAR AIR is basically an external display that you can connect to your phone or laptop. It is equipped with two Full HD Micro OLED displays, which TCL claims can create a viewing environment "equivalent of watching a 140-inch screen, 4 meters away."

Thanks to a 47 pixels-per-degree resolution, the wearable display glasses promise to deliver a cinema-like level of clarity. The glasses also come with dual speakers that can play back stereo audio for spatial effects. You can also connect any wired or wireless headphones to the NXTWEAR AIR for a more private experience.

The new TCL NXTWEAR AIR weighs just 75g with the standard lens, which means it won't weigh you down when watching movies or gaming for hours. Besides greater comfort, the glasses can also be customized to match users' style with two exchangeable front lenses.

TCL says the wearable display glasses are "perfect for commuters, anyone travelling for work, or on a flight." When paired with a laptop, the glasses can act as a second screen as well. Users can also enjoy a "private arcade experience" by pairing the NXTWEAR AIR's companion device with a Bluetooth controller.

Since it uses a USB Type-C connector, the NXTWEAR AIR is compatible with all the best Android phones on the market. It also works with a wide range of tablets and laptops.

TCL hasn't announced pricing or availability yet, but we expect the wearable display glasses to go on sale in select markets sometime later this year.

Apple Has 'Very Serious' DMA Issues, EU to Enforce Rules 'Soon'

Apple is facing a "number" of "very serious" issues with its Digital Markets Act compliance in Europe, EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an interview with CNBC . The European Commission opened an investigation into Apple in March to determine if Apple's EU app marketplace changes were complying with DMA regulations. The DMA requires Apple to provide developers with an option to distribute apps outside of the App Store and without ‌App Store‌'s fees. Apple implemented support for app marketplaces with iOS 17.4, but it charges an 0.50 euro Core Technology Fee for each download after the initial 1 million annual installs. Vestager does not believe that Apple's changes meet the requirements of the DMA. "We have a number of Apple issues; I find them very serious," she said. "I was very surprised that we would have such suspicions of Apple being non-compliant." She went on to say that this implementation "

U.S. Government Sues Adobe for Hidden Termination Fees When Canceling Subscription

The United States Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission today levied a lawsuit against Adobe [ PDF ] for imposing a hidden termination fee on subscribers who want to cancel their Adobe plans. Adobe is accused of forcing subscribers to "navigate a complex and challenging cancellation process designed to deter them from cancelling subscriptions they no longer wanted." Adobe offers its Creative Cloud products on a subscription basis, with fees that are paid monthly. A monthly payment suggests that it's possible to cancel anytime, but that's not how Adobe works because most customers are actually locked into a hidden annual agreement. Customers who sign up for a free trial and are then charged and signed up to the default Creative Cloud plan, which is actually an annual contract. Canceling the annual contract requires customers to pay a lump sum of 50 percent of the "remaining contractual obligation" to cancel, despite the fact that servic
