Moshi for iPad
  • Audojo iPad case gaming


    Love gaming and love your iPad, but don't love gaming on your iPad? A new concept in iPad accessories, launched just this week on Kickstarter, is looking to bring your two great loves together, with a carrying case designed specifically for gaming and gamers.


    Engadget reported yesterday on the latest idea from Audojo, a case that supplies what most gamers find lacking when playing on their tablet – physical controls.


    The case, which is compatible with iPad 2 or higher, closes around the ends of your iPad, giving you two analog joysticks, shoulder buttons, and stereo speakers.Meanwhile, the rest of your tablet is left free, so you can use your camera or any of your tablet's buttons without hassle.


    There are, of course, other gaming controllers for iPad out there. But how Audojo's differs, says Engadget, is that rather than connecting via Bluetooth, it uses a low-latency microphone-based interface.


    hile the case does have a mini-USB connector for charging, it doesn't actually act as a charger for your iPad, which would be cool but would also make the gadget a lot more expensive, so Audojo's decided to keep it simple, for a cheaper, more accessible design.


    This isn't a perfect accessory – yet. Engadget took issue with its prototype, which it said "looks a little clunky since it adds quite a bit of bulk to the iPad's figure," though they also noted that, when you're actually using it, "it's light and well balanced and feels comfortable in hand."


    They also found that the pods for the shoulder buttons, electronics and batteries, housed at the back of the case, are "are currently too wide but Audojo plans to remedy this before production thanks to an improved circuit board layout."


    Audojo's gaming case is far from hitting any store shelves. But if its Kickstarter campaign works out as planned, we should eventually see a slimmer, more refined version of this already pretty cool prototype. And though we're not counting our chickens before they hatch, we have a hunch it could be one of the best iPad accessories yet made for the gaming crowd.

  • hosewear fire hose waterproof iPad case Hosewear recycles old fire hoses into mobile accessories, like iPad sleeves, messenger bags and carrying cases

    It doesn't always take a big brand name to come up with cool new iPad accessories. This week, Pure Mobile came across an ingenious waterproof iPad case designed by two Estonian students using recycled fire-hose as the primary material.


    Working on the idea that "it’s rather silly that perfectly good material is wasted when firehoses reach their standard time of use," Ivar Arulaid and Lee Sakk started Hoswear, a line of accessories, from phone sleeves and iPad or laptop cases to messenger bags, totes and clutches, all made from recycled hoses.


    It's a clever way to go about making a waterproof iPad bag or sleeve, and the look is just as cool.


    Available in yellow, red, or white, and often including bits of text from the up-cycled hoses, Hosewear's iPad sleeves have a modern, industrial look that's just as appealing to women as to men. And of course, they'll keep your iPad dry, all while being friendly to the environment.

    There's really nothing too complicated about Hosewear's product line. Their bags and cases for the most part have a pretty standard shape. But the small company has definitely distinguished itself by cleverly reusing a really effective and unique material that still has quite a lot of life left in it.


    The result is a fairly waterproof and totally cool iPad cover that's sure to stand out from the rest.

    But what makes it really great for the rugged, outdoorsy type or active athlete are additional features, like the built-in loop at the top, which comes with a carbiner, so you can secure your phone when you're on the go or when you've set up camp.


    And, aside from the fairly standard kick-stand, PureGear's ExtremeCase offers cool details rarely found in an iPhone case, like a built-in bottle opener and wrench. So even if you're out of service area, your iPhone may just be able to get you out of a sticky situation.

    OtterBox cases have already been a hit for some time now among the iPhone crowd, thanks to its the popular Commuter and Defender series. But the leading cell phone accessories label isn't playing favorites with Apple. That's because OtterBox has brought the stylish protection of its Commuter and Defender case to Motorola's Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr.


    Launched only this past fall, it's not always easy to find the same selection of accessories for Motorola's latest phone as you can for longer-standing, or crazy popular models like the Galaxy S3 or the older iPhones. But it's nice to know that OtterBox, one of the best in the business, is on point here.

    You'll find the same ultra durable, triple-layer protection in the Defender case for Droid Razr HD that's made it such a popular accessory for other phone models. With a screen protector integrated into the inner layer, a second, shatter ressistant polycarbonate layer, and a shock-absorbing silicone outer layer, it's basically military-grade protection for your favorite Motorola phone.


    As for our other newest arrival, just like the other cases in the series, the OtterBox Commuter case for Droid Razr HD protects your phone from, bumps, scratches and daily wear and tear. But the especially nice thing here is that the case's signature sleek look is "precisely designed to complement and not just cover" the slim design of your phone.

    Move over Liferpoof, there's a new waterproof iPhone 5 case in town. 9to5Mac reported on a new, seriously rugged case from Incipio, unveiled yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.


    The award-winning cell phone accessories maker's latest is the xGO, a rough-and-tumble iPhone 5 case that's waterproof up to 25 feet, and which the company has branded as an "action sports equipped case solution," ideal for the adventurous type.


    The xGO blends a plextonium frame with a silicone core and sports a tempered glass screen, so that your iPhone isn't just protected underwater, but maintains full functionality as well.


    Meanwhile, the case's mounting system allows you to "effortlessly mount the case to backpacks, bicycles, surfboards," and comes with a bunch of cool screw-in lenses for your phone's camera, like wide angle, fish eye, macro and zoom.

  • Griffin just unveiled its latest accessories, like the PowerDock 5, at CES in Las Vegas

    We're smack in the middle of the Consumer Electronics Show, which is a pretty big deal for us at Pure Mobile. That's because the annual CES event is basically the biggest event around for anyone interested in the newest and best in mobile technologies, like the latest in phones and accessories.


    It's where most of the major names in mobile, like Samsung, Nokia and HTC choose to reveal new smartphones and other gadgets, and where it's we get the scoop on the best new accessories.


    This year's CES is still going on in in Las Vegas, and already we've seen some cool stuff for from one of our favorite accessories makers, Griffin. The company's already well known for its iPhone, iPad and iPod accessories, like tough cases and the like. And CES 2013 has seen the launch of even more Apple accessories from the company.


    Among Griffin's newest offerings is the PowerDock 5, a USB docking station for iPhone, iPad and iPod that works on what Engadget calls a "toast-rack" design and can charge multiple devices at once with a capacity of up to 5 iPads at once. Pretty cool for households with more than a couple of people, or for really geared up techies.


    But Griffin has as just as big of a reputation for audio, and they're living up to it this year with the launch of new audio accessories like an updated Lightning version of their iPad StudioConnect, as well as a new Mic Stand Mount "that works like a traditional microphone performance stand," says 9to5Mac, but for iPad. Oh yeah, and they've also introduced a new studio-quality XLR to 3.5mm recording mic for iPhone and iPad, but it won't be available til June

  • Griffin's statement Moxy cases for iPhone 5 balance cool and quality

     


    We already know mobile accessories maker Griffin for its tough as hell smartphone and tablet cases. Models like the Protector and Survivor are the kind of cases we could actually imagine surviving a zombie apocalypse.


    But for some people, protection doesn't mean much unless it looks good. Sure, some may dig the utilitarian charm of a rugged case. But there are others still who'd prefer a much less macho look, a case that says high-end cool, a case with a little glamour and a fashionable edge, but that does the job nonethless.



    And that's exactly what you get from today's mobile accessory of the week. Versatile as ever, leading mobile accessories label Griffin has come out with a line of ultra cool iPhone 5 cases under the banner of their Moxy collection.


    With an edge and style worthy of a spot in even the best fashionista's wardrobe, Grffin's Moxy cases come in a trendy range of colors, textures and patterns, adding some serious designer appeal to your iPhone 5.


    From their textured snakeskin Moxy Python iPhone case, to the intense black and pink combo of their leopard print Moxy Cat iPhone case, Griffin finds itself leading the competition in terms of both cool and quality.



    That's because Griffin puts the same protective, multilayer design to work in their fashion-forward cases and skins as they would with simpler, more standard designs.


    In the case of the Moxy line, you get a smooth rubber-finish lining that protects your iPhone from scratches and smudges, along with a tough polycarbonate shell around the back and edges for impact resistance.


    So even though Griffin's iPhone 5 Moxy cases stand up to the rest of your wardrobe in terms of cool, they're also hard to beat in terms of functionality, protection and performance.

  • Ah the New Year. Once we've all had our fill of overeating, sleeping late, and maybe drinking a few too many cups of eggnog, it's time to return to reality, and a slightly more austere daily routine.


    But it's also a good time to look back on the past twelve months and consider what we could change for the better in the coming year. At pure mobile, we're doing just that, but with a tech spin.


    We're calling out five common bad tech habits to work on in the New Year. But don't worry, we've also got some simple solutions to help you keep your mobile resolutions in 2013.


    1. Exercise more


    Let's face it, you've probably eaten enough turkey and sweets in the past two weeks to make the prospect of non-elasticized waistbands seem like cruel and unnecessary punishment. And, if you're like most of us, even if you return to your normal diet, you'll still find a couple of extra pounds you'd like to lose after all that feasting.


    Getting out there and doing a bit of exercise can be a lot more fun if you can listen to your favorite music and stay connected while you break a sweat. And a handy armband for your Mp3 player or smartphone, like Griffin's Adidas MiCoach Armband for iPhone 5, will keep your device securely in place, for hands-free entertainment throughout your whole workout.

    2. Be more discreet about checking your phone


    The funny thing is, no one bats an eye when someone they're talking to checks their watch, but whipping out your smartphone mid-conversation is still considered pretty rude. So, if you can't completely break the bad habit of checking your phone constantly (whether someone is talking to you or not), you can at least try an be a little less obvious about it.


    Stay updated while still being discreet with a Bluetooth-enabled smartwatch, like Sony's Smart Watch, which syncs with your phone and allows you to check updates from your email and social media accounts with the flip of your wrist.

    3. Take better care of your valuables


    Already made your way through a few phones in 2012? Busted your new tablet just a few weeks in? Try to be safe, rather than sorry in 2013, and invest in a heavy-duty case for your most prized devices. Otterbox's Defender line comprises some of the most protective, durable cases on the market.


    And with cases for iPhone and iPad, as well as for BlackBerry and Samsung phones, you'll be able to make sure your phone or tablet makes it through the coming year without a scratch.

    4. Drive more safely


    If you have the bad habit of consistently texting and talking on the phone while you drive, your resolution this year should probably be to drive more safely. Lucky for you, keeping that resolution should be easy with a good car kit, like Blue Ant's S4 Bluetooth Car Kit.


    It's totally voice-controlled so you never have to take your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road. And it comes loaded with features, like a 2,000 phone number capacity, text to speech for caller ID, background noise reduction, and multipoint capabilities so you can connect 2 phones at a time.

    5. Return to long-form communication


    Don't get us wrong. Text messages are great, succinct, to the point. But there are just some things that are best left to the long form of letters and email. If you find yourself texting things like "luv u" and "srry yur grandma died," make an effort this year to say more, even if you're sending a message from your touchscreen phone.


    With HipStreet's Keyboard Case for iPhone, you'll have the typing ease of a full keyboard wherever you go. The case's Bluetooth keyboard slides out whenever you feel the need to send a message that doesn't fit within Twitter's character limit. So you can say more when it really matters.

  • Having a valuable stolen is already bad enough; You feel violated, and now you'll have to foot the cost of replacing it too.


    Getting a mobile device, like a phone, laptop or tablet stolen is even worse, because, aside from loosing a costly device, you lose content like music and personal pictures and video, and personal information.


    But there's at least one way to safeguard against this type of personal and financial loss. And it's so genius that we've named it our Mobile Accessory of the Week.


    Mobile accessories maker Kensington has developed a line of secure cases and accessories for tablets and other devices, that lock to protect them from thieves as well as from every day wear and tear.


     


    Kensington's Patented SecureBack cases attach to the rear of you iPad while their ClickSafe lock anchors are made from aircraft grade steel and secure to the ports on your iPad with a single click. These tamper-resistant lock anchors have thousands of possible key combinations, and are chrome-plated to resist corrosion and wear.


    The security that Kensington cases offer is in itself a strong selling point, but the company has by no means neglected other areas of design.


     


    Their iPad cases come in a variety that ranges from minimalist to all the bells and whistles; Their Security Case & Lock for iPad 2 protects the back and sides of your tablet, while the more heavy-duty Protective Case & Lock for iPad 2 features a folio design that also covers the screen.


    For the full deal, you can get the Case, Keyboard & Lock for iPad 2, which includes a removable bluetooth keyboard and an integrated folio that does double duty as carrying case and multi-postion stand.


     


    But, be it a slim skin-style case or full-blown work-station, all Kensington cases promise protection from theft, so you and your content can rest easy.
