HP Pocket Playlist #BacktoSchool #Giveaway

by Lesley

5M4M contributor Lesley Peck is here to share this giveaway with you. She was compensated to write this post, and we were provided with an item to giveaway from HP. All her opinions remain her own.

I have found the best thing in the world. No, seriously, I have. I know we say that about everything but I am in awe of this little device right here. I want one. I want one badly.

I’m big into using mobile devices, I’m always on my Kindle Fire. It sticks by me all during the day. And now I’ve found something that could make it even better! The HP Pocket Playlist.

It is one of the smallest and neatest things I’ve seen in a long time. It streams different kinds of content – movies, music, TV shows, photos – to 5 individual mobile devices at the same time — get this — without needing an internet connection. 

The HP Pocket Playlist could be a life saver for a busy family. Have a little kid but lots of errands to run? Or maybe you need to take one child to practice and your other child gets bored waiting? Well, no more!

With the click of a few buttons they can be entertained by watching a tv show/movie or listening to music. Family trips just got stress free also. This little device would be epic for all those after school activities where your little ones get super bored.

Features

  • 32GB of storage power. What does that equal? 16 full-length movies, 7,600 songs or 10,000 photos. That’s massive amount of entertainment.
  • Got USB port? Then, you can charge it or load it from your PC. USB compatibility works with any Windows-based PC.
  • No cords to fight with or trip over. Far-reaching 30ft (10m) wireless range gives you the freedom to move around (802.11b/g/n).
  • 3 buttons control it all. Obvious on/off button. Easily switch between USB & wireless. Instantly activate secure connection (WPS).
  • Compatible with HP Slate 7, HP Elitepad, iPad, iPod touch & iPhone; Windows-based PCs, Android phones & tablets and Kindle Fire. (Requires iOS 4.3 and above; Windows® XP/Vista™/7/8; Android® 2.2 and above, Kindle™ Fire and above.)

I imagine my kids would enjoy it and honestly so would I! This is THE perfect Back to School technology you need to add to your smart electronics.

Between my kids’ projects, my senior’s AP and dual enrollment classes, my 8th graders AVID/AP and band classes and their love for music that would be a wonderful device to have. Especially for my 8th grader who is in marching band. She plays the trumpet, but she can play almost any instrument if she knows the music for it. She can listen to a song and play it without music sheets. Both of my girls have an amazing voice too.
