It’s a pair of Nevos!
Finally for today, how about a quick look at a pair of new Nevo remote controls from Universal Electronics?

First up is the Nevo S70, which sports a large 3.5” 240x320 color touchscreen display. The S70 is similar in design to the current NevoSL model, however sports two additional hard buttons above the volume and channel toggles, bringing the total to 19 keys. Other features include WiFi 802.11b/g support, computer-based programming with the new NevoStudio Pro software via USB or WiFi, rechargeable lithium ion battery and docking station, NevoMedia software for PC media management, as well as an optional Nevo Connect NC50 WiFi-based extender.

The second new model is the Nevo Q50, which is a complete departure from previous Nevo models. The Q50 sports a smaller – but still touchscreen – color LCD display, along with a much larger complement of 30 hard buttons. The less expensive Q50 otherwise comes with a similar selection of features and capabilities to the S70, including a rechargeable lithium ion battery and NevoStudio Pro programming software.

This model in particular looks like it will give the now common “hard buttoned remote with LCD labeled buttons” concept a run for its money, by finally offering users a remote control with plenty of hard buttons for commonly used functions, along with the versatility and customizability of a touchscreen for everything else (such as system navigation and favorite channels).
