postheadericon ProForm Trailrunner 4.0 treadmill tricks you into exercising with 10-inch Android tablet

Looking for a New Year’s resolution to break? Look elsewhere. If you commit to banging out three solid miles on a Trailrunner 4.0 treadmill each day, there’s a better-than-average chance you’ll actually be able to do just that throughout 2011. In a presumed effort to keep nerds and internet junkies “in shape,” ProForm has slapped a 10-inch Android tablet (non-removable, sadly) up top, offering users the ability to check the news, browse their email and surf the web so long as a WiFi network is within range. Once you’re done with that, you can scroll through workout stats and options including speed, time, distance, calories burned, pulse, incline and pace. Moreover, it’s integrated with iFit Live in order to give users the ability to map their progress, and the inbuilt speaker system and auxiliary input lets you jam to your heart’s content, too. At $2,999, it’s hardly an impulse buy, but considering that you were already budgeting $500 for a new Android device… actually, nah, it’s still no bargain.

[Thanks, Justin]

postheadericon Motorola ‘Stadia’ trademark application hints at device with gaming / fitness features

It’s not exactly a ton to go on, but a trademark application recently filed by Motorola for the word “Stadia” has at least opened up a few interesting possibilities. While the (as yet nonexistent) device in question is seemingly phone-related given the goods and services Motorola is hoping to have covered, the application also specifically mentions a “game device in the nature of handheld units for playing electronic games for use with external display screen or monitor,” along with a number of fitness-related functions like heart rate, speed, and calorie monitoring. That latter bit is further backed up by a separate “Stadia” trademark application filed by Motorola back in November, which specifically covered “fitness monitoring devices.” What does it all mean? If we had to guess we’d say it’s some sort of fitness accessory designed for use with a phone (possibly with some game-like features). Unfortunately, guessing is about all we can do at the moment.

postheadericon Ripxx ski app out now for Android, still has no idea what the street value of this mountain is

The closest we have ever come to a ski race is the worn out VHS copy of Better Off Dead we still have in the back of our closets somewhere, but if you’re an Android-lovin’ ski bunny jealous of all the attention Ripxx has been giving the iPhone, you’re in luck. That’s right, your fave open source smartphone OS has its very own version of the Ripxx Ski and Snowboard app. Version 1.1 features over 200 mapped out resorts, GPS tracking, stats recording (including speed, distance, and vertical drop) and more. Not bad for $5, eh?
