Review: Arkon 22" Heavy Duty Tablet Clamp | C-Clamp Mount for Tablets

image

If you are not sure who Arkon is, they are a leader in the tech industry for providing mounting solutions for our mobile gadgets. I just finished testing out one of their new models, the Heavy Duty Tablet Clamp, Model # TAB802. This is a 22” adjustable mount for your tablet that attaches with a clamp to a table, desk or cart. (Note that Arkon also has a shorter model.)

I’ve always been impressed with their solutions because they work well. My pics will be at the end of this review, so check them out.



couch potato app (Viggle) Rewards you

image

 

I read about this in my morning newspaper today. The link below is actually from Fox News but it has the same information. This app will basically earn you points for watching TV shows and other media related items. It works on your iOS device that has a microphone. This was just released last Wednesday and they will be creating an Android version as well n the future.

The jist of it is that you’re watching a TV show for example and you click the app. Viggle will listen to the show and will then give you so many points per minute of viewing.



FLEX kit for iPad 2

A couple years ago, I reviewed the Ektopad F1 for iPad. Since then they have developed other iPad cases. They are currently working on a Flex Kit. The press release info is below. Check it out.

“For the past year our protective covers have been used by schools and kids around the country.  Feedback from parents and educators lead us to integrate additional features and attachments to prevent the drops and to allow the iPad to be comfortable to hold and maneuver.



Survey Says: People Love Their Tablets!

Here is another thing that came out this week, from Staples. I'm sharing it because I thought it was a neat survey illustration. What do you think?



G-Form Extreme Edge Case Test

This came in one of the press releases last week, but I’m just getting to it now. It’s a test of one of the G-Form cases. I’m a little skeptical of this but you have to check the video out. It is a great HD video.



Review: Verbatim Mobile Wireless Keyboard

image

I was able to take Verbatim's Mobile Wireless Bluetooth keyboard for a spin. This is a revision to an earlier model they have.  In the package, you get their keyboard, batteries, case, and guide.

This keyboard reminds me of the days when I was using a ThinkOutside and Palm Wireless keyboard with my pocket PC's. This keyboard folds in half when not in use and can be placed in the included carrying pouch. It is a little thick when folded in half but none the less, it's still pretty compact and easy to store.



Review: Kensington Virtuoso Metro Stylus and Pen for Tablets

image

The folks at Kensington sent me their Virtuoso Metro Stylus and Pen for Tablets to try out for review. I have a love hate relationship with this pen. It’s the first pen stylus combo I have used for tablets and I absolutely love that concept.

You can see the full feature listing below along with all my pics at the end. The pen itself is very comfortable to use and in my opinion it writes very well. I don’t use ballpoint pens too often as I prefer to use my Sharpie fine point pens. But I have to say, I really like the way this writes.



Review: Scosche clipSYNC

image

Earlier in the year, I got to check out Scoche’s flipSYNC II, which was a keychain charge and sync cable for your iOS device. I will put the link for that review at the end. They expanded that concept and took it up a notch and released the clipSYNC. It essentially performs the same operation of syncing and charging your device. But in this unit, they added in a built-in carabiner clip so you can clip it anywhere for storage or on the go.

Check out my original review for the operation of the sync and charge cable, as that process has not changed at all.

Not too long ago, Zagg came out with the ZAGGkeys Solo. This is a bluetooth keyboard that works with many tablets, some smartphones, iPhones and iPod Touches. It works with both iOS and Android.
