iPhone owners will be rubbing their hands together with glee at the thought of some of the new accessories which are being made available for 2013.
Pebble Smartwatch :
The first of these is the Pebble smartwatch. This has already been launched and is considered to be one of the great successes for this range as it attracted a lot of attention while it was still just in production. The watch has a 1.26 inch screen which boasts an e-paper display. The aim is to produce a screen which works well in bright conditions. There is also a backlight which can be flicked on when the light is not so good. The watch is compatible not only with iPhones but also with Android handsets so will have a very broad appeal. The watch can display notifications from social networking sites as well as emails.
Cellulon Magic Cube :
The Celluon Magic Cube has been designed with the business user in mind. This is a box which is just 7 centimetres tall and just 3 centimetres wide but it still manages to produce a full-size QWERTY keyboard. With the help of lasers and sensors the keyboard is a projection onto a flat surface and the user can then type on it. The Bluetooth technology connects the cube to the device (iPhone or iPad) and then the input appears on the screen. The cube has a battery life of 150 minutes and could be a godsend for business users while they are out and about.
ZeroChroma Theatre-stand 360 iPhone Cases :
In addition to these great gadgets, iPhone users can also opt for the ZeroChroma Theatre-stand 360 cases. These are available for the latest iPhone models and there are several versions. The Vario Clear and VarioProtect 5 have a transparent backing. The cases are made from a thick polymer and have non-slip surfaces and the theatre-stand 360 feature allows the phone to be angled in various different ways on a flat surface. This helps with viewing of content and a full range of these should be widely available in the UK shortly.
Juice Pack Powerstation Duo :
Morphie have also brought out a new range of products which are iPhone compatible. The company has external charging solutions and these have been added to with the Juice Pack Powerstation Duo. This is an external battery which has been given two USB outputs, which means that more than one device can be charged at the same time. The good news is that there is no need for a wall socket and these can be used for the iPad as well as the iPhone – ideal for anyone who has ever lost battery life at an inopportune moment.
iPhone users can expect this to be just a small range of the compatible accessories to appear this year but the products which are appearing on the shelves are innovative and ideal for those who want to make the most of every aspect of their handset. These are not inexpensive items but for those who want to keep up with the latest technologies they do have much to offer.
