I wrote, favorably, about M-Edge's SuperShell protective foam case for the iPad, before, so it is great to see that they've added a version specifically for the iPhone.



Crimson's Pocket EAZL transforms from pocket-size to full-size tablet stand

image
Sometimes iOS product vendors overstate their product's abilities. So it's refreshing to see Crimson's Pocket EAZL which, if anything, underestimates what it can do.

Charging on the go... One of the questions I get most often from folks embarking on summertime adventues with tech toys is: "How do I keep my devices charged while on my travels?"

 

That's a great and crucial question! To address that concern, I'd like to introduce to you two handy, affordable and very useful products: the goBAT II portable USB battery charger by Scosche, and the Mojo Armor external battery case by ibattz.

 

 



Speck iPad 3 Case Mini Review Series: FitFolio for iPad

image

This is the first mini review in this series of the new iPad 3 Speck Cases. If you are not familiar with my last post, Speck sent me several of their new cases for the iPad 3 (compatible with the iPad 2). I gave these away locally to other iPad users to see what they think about them. The first feedback I got was on the FitFolio. The below mini review is unedited. This user has an iPad 2.

 

“This was my first iPad cover. I was skeptical about the cover fitting the iPad along with fearing losing the ability to attach cords etc in the iPad outlets. I am a true believer! The cover attached easily and appears to be very secure.

With the launch of the new iPad (aka iPad 3), comes more cool cases and accessories. Speck (maker of my favorite Candyshell case) just came out with a full line of new iPad 3 (compatible with iPad 2) cases. Below are pictures of them with links to their product pages. Thanks to Speck, I got to send most of these cases into my local wild where other iPad users will be using them. In the coming weeks, I will share some of the mini reviews by these people that used these cases.

SpiderArm keeps your iPad where you need it and your hands free

image
I have a good friend who is a dentist, and he wanted to put an iPad in front of patients so they could be entertained during longer procedures. So when I saw the SpiderArm, I figured it would be just the ticket. Indeed, with all of the options, and the sleek white design, the SpiderArm looks just like a typical dental tool.



Review: Proporta Tablet Cases

image

The fine folks at Proporta sent me over a couple of cases to use with my tablets. I’m not using the latest and greatest tech by today’s standards. I’m still using the Original iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab 7. Don’t shy away from this review just because you may have a different tablet model. There’s a good chance Proporta will have a similar case/style for your exact device. If you are not familiar with Proporta, they have been making great cases since 1996.

Most iPad owners purchase a case to protect their device.

The descriptions not only include the list price but also the price on Amazon, so that you can get a sense for how much they're selling for through other online retailers.


New audio accessories are constantly evolving for all iOS devices, and starting earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), there were some great ones in action. Most prefer something compact, with good quality sound, and affordability. An integrated app is nice, but not crucial. 

The Bose MIE2i wired mobile headset

 are perfect examples of earbuds that are compact, have great sound quailty and are affordable. They are highly rated for both sound quality and comfort. They come with three sizes of StayHear silicon tips and an answer/end button on the inline microphone. The reviews say the quality of sound is tops. Note that these are standard earbuds - no noise-isolating to block unwanted sound.
 A comparison of these earbuds and other great accessories are in the 2011 Best Gear article.
