  • Griffin Survivor Waterproof new iPhone 5 accessories


    At Pure Mobile, we sure do love new iPhone 5 accessories, especially when they give us something we haven't seen before. So it's only natural that we put the spotlight today on the new arrival at our shop of Griffin's latest, the Survivor Waterproof iPhone 5 Case.


    Not too long ago, a waterproof iPhone 5 case seemed like a novel concept with only one or two big names working on such a design. of course, there's LifeProof, as well as OtterBox's recently released Armor series. But that led us to wonder why Griffin was so long absent from this new accessory category.


    So well known for heavy-duty iPhone 5 accessories made for extreme conditions, Griffin ought to have a waterproof iPhone case of its own. And now, with the Survivor waterproof, a collaboration with accessories maker Catalyst, we've finally got it.


    Griffin Survivor Waterproof iPhone 5 Case in Black


    The Survivor + Catalyst iPhone 5 case is designed and tested to be completely waterproof up to 3 metres (or 9.8 feet). So, water won't get in the way of taking pictures or video, or anything else you use your phone for.


    Meanwhile, the same rugged protection you get from Griffin's standard Survivor model is right there in this waterproof case as well. Having consulted the U.S. Department of Defense's Mil-Std 810-G to design their testing protocols, this waterproof case also keeps your phone protected from drops, shocks and vibrations.


    But as a latecomer to the waterproof iPhone case market, it's a good thing that Griffin has yet another card up its sleeve.


    Unlike LifeProof's Fre case (which, by the way, is actually pretty awesome) the Survivor + Catalyst case doesn't actually need to be screwed or unscrewed to be attached or removed. Instead, it uses compression latches to secure the case, making waterproofing your phone as easy as changing into a swimsuit. In fact, Griffin even claims that it's the most easy-fitting waterproof iPhone 5 case availalble.


    As we said, we love casting the spotlight on new iPhone 5 accessories at Pure Mobile. And with a carrying case as functional, protective and cleverly designed as Griffin's Survivor waterproof iPhone 5 case, the task is even more fun.

  • iSkin Aura iPhone 5 Case Colors: new iPhone 5 accessories


     


    We're starting the week off with a big punch of color at Pure Mobile with the arrival of some new iPhone 5 accessories. The iSkin Aura carrying case has just hit our shop in a lineup of vivid hues, perfect for the summer season ahead. And we're loving the balance of minimalism and vibrance it's bringing to our favorite Apple device.


    With this latest carrying case, it looks like iSkin really worked to design an accessory that could capture the modern elegance of the iPhone 5. Elements of the new iPhone's aesthetic are echoed in the design of the Aura, with a texture and form that complements that of the iPhone 5.


    iSkin Aura iPhone 5 Case Blue ARIPH5BE1 iSkin Aura iPhone 5 Case in Blue

     


    Made of tough Polycarbonate, the thin but strong iSkin Aura sports a luxurious finish of aircraft-grade aluminum, not unlike the backing material on the iPhone 5 itself.


    Easy to snap on and off, this top-notch carrying case attaches to the sides of the phone, extending the color on the back to the length of both sides, The top and bottom of the iPhone, however, are left unobstructed, so you get total access to ports and controls.


    iSkin Aura iPhone 5 Case Green ARIPH5GN3 iSkin Aura iPhone 5 Case in Green

     


    Because the iSkin Aura is so slim (especially considering how tough it is) it's super portable and pretty lightweight. But its sleek, compact design also means you can easily use your iPhone docking station and other iPhone 5 accessories without actually having to remove the case.


    iSkin Aura iPhone 5 Case Black: New iPhone 5 accessories iSkin Aura iPhone Case 5 in Black

     


    But obviously, one of the things we love most about this lineup of new iPhone 5 accessories is the huge color selection. Available in a fresh spring green, teal blue, candy pink, vibrant orange and of course classic black, there's one to suit almost every taste. So if you're looking for a cool iPhone 5 case this summer, the iSkin Aura will keep your phone protected and beautiful for the season ahead.

  • Incipio Atlas Waterproof iPhone 5 Case in White and Pink


     


    Incipio already makes some of the best iPhone accessories out there, with a huge line of protective carrying cases that run the gamut from slim and lightweight to ultra tough. But with today's mobile accessory of the week, the cell phone accessories maker has turned it up a notch. Meet the Atlas, Incipio's new waterproof iPhone 5 case.


    Incipio Atlas Waterproof iPhone 5 Case in White and Pink Incipio Atlas Waterproof iPhone 5 Case in White and Pink

     


    This newly released accessory is perfectly timed for summer, when you'll probably need a waterproof iPhone case. Meanwhile, the Atlas is well-geared to take on any other wear and tear your phone might see during your summer adventures.


    The tempered glass front on this iPhone 5 case is the secret to its waterproofing, while its high-density silicone skin provides shock absorption and proetcts from drops, even on hard surfaces.


    Incipio Atlas Waterproof iPhone 5 Case in White and Pink Incipio Atlas Waterproof iPhone 5 Case in White and Pink

     


    Probably one of the most protective cases Incipio's ever made, the Atlas not only offers top-notch protection from water, but is otherwise perfect for a day at the beach, since it also protects your phone from dust and dirt.


    A quick look at Incipio's campaign video for the Atlas will show you the kind of abuse this carrying case is designed to handle. We see a skier drop his iPhone into a pile of snow, and a beach-goer kick sand all over hers.


    If you're an active type who likes to get out and bout, it's nice not to have to worry about whether or not your phone is safe all the time. And with the Incipio Atlas, you'll be able to just go about your day and know your phone is well protected. Not to mention the case is really compact and is easy to snap on and off


    Because it provides so much protection from so many different dangers, we'd even venture to say that the Atlas is the best iPhone 5 case Incipio has ever made. And with the company's already impressive lineup of iPhone accessories, that's saying something.

  • Otterbox Pursuits Series 40 Dry Box Case Black


    OtterBox already has a reputation for rugged protection. With ultra-tough, super-engineered accessories like their Defender case for Galaxy S4, iPhone 5 and more, it's a reputation that's more than earned. But today's Pure Mobile accessory of the week, the OtterBox Pursuits 40 Dry Box, takes things even further than everyday protection.


    A hardcore carrying case for real adventures, the Pursuits 40 is a modern reinvention of the classic outdoorsman's dry box. And of course, being the 21st Century, that means it's designed to hold your smartphone, as well as other survival gear. It's even got a mesh panel that can accomodate a slew of phone models, from the iPhone 4S and 5, to Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4, BlackBerry handsets and way more.


    OtterBox Pursuit/40 Dry Box in Blue OtterBox Pursuits 40 Dry Box in Blue

     


    With an internal volume of about 30 cubic inches, this totally waterproof case can take on a Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5 that's already in a case, with lots of room left over for  other things you'll need to keep safe and dry – valuables, bandages, ID, and small electronics.


    Rubber mats on the interior cushion the contents from shocks and impact, while the rubber mesh panel keeps your phone snugly in place.


    OtterBox Pursuits 40 Dry Box in Black OtterBox Pursuits 40 Dry Box in Black

     


    And since this is after all an OtterBox case, the Pursuits 40 Dry Box is built like a fortress. This carrying case is not only completely waterproof up to 100 ft., it's also drop proof, dust proof and crush proof, tested to withstand up to 1,000 lbs. of force.


    But just in case you're still worried about dropping it, the Pursuits 40 comes with carabiner loops that make it super easy to secure to a backpack or to otherwise keep close at hand.


    We've already seen the level of protection OtterBox can offer when it comes to accessories for single devices, like iPhone and Galaxy Carrying cases. SO we can only assume that they've applied the same thoughtful design and rigorous testing to this larger, more robust case.


    Perfect for adventurers, outdoorsy types and every kind of traveler imaginable, the Pursuits 40 Dry Box is a one-of-a-kind accessory that not only protects your smartphone the way only OtterBox could, but lets you go new places with total confidence in the safety of your valuables, electronics and survival gear. And that makes it our accessory of the week.

  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Flip Cover Cases colors collection Samsung Flip Cover Galaxy S4 Cases in a Rainbow of Color

     


    Something fun and colorful is headed our way at Pure Mobile, with a punchy new collection of Flip Cover Galaxy S4 cases. The ever-popular Flip Cover has been one of the cornerstones of Samsung accessories, and is among the most popular carrying cases for the Galaxy S3.


    That probably has something to do with the sweet simplicity of this Galaxy accessory. With a sleek folio design that protects your screen, it actually snaps on to replace your phone's back panel, so it doesn't add any extra bulk. And with a smooth leather cover, it's got more than a touch of sophistication.

    Of course, even with the flip cover, this case still leaves you total and easy access to all of your phone's ports and controls. And you don't have to remove the case to talk.


    But now, as it launches for the S4, it's making its way to Pure Mobile in a fresh and lively lineup of bright, solid colors. From vibrant orange, to cool blue and sweet pink, we're loving the fun factor of this official Samsung Galaxy S4 case.


    Samsung Flip Cover Galaxy S4 Case in Orange Samsung Flip Cover Galaxy S4 Case in Orange

     


    Of course, if you're more of a traditionalist, you can still get the Samsung Flip Cover Galaxy S4 case in a more standard black or white, always a neat and professional option. But we'd still recommend adding a little color with one of the more cheerful models for a fresh springtime statement.

  • PureGear retro Game cases iPhone 5 Galaxy S4 PureGear's line of funky retro cases is available for iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S4

     


    After their latest collection of carrying cases for iPhone 5 and the new Samsung Galaxy S4, mobile accessories maker PureGear should really change its name to Pure Fun. Pure Cool or Pure Awesome would work too, since that pretty much describes their new line of retro game-inspired cases, arriving any day now at Pure Mobile.


    Probably some of the coolest iPhone accessories or Galaxy S4 cases available, these carrying cases are modeled after old-school games, like the portable, pocket-sized plastic ball mazes most of us remember from childhood.


    Puregear Amazing Gamer Case Samsung Galaxy S4 Red Blue Puregear Amazing Gamer Case for Samsung Galaxy S4 in Red and Blue

     


    Bright colors and funky design add to the retro effect of models like the Amazing Gamer Case and Groovy Gamer case. And all the models in this latest PureGear collection are available as either iPhone 5 cases or Galaxy S4 cases. It's a perfectly practical and sensible excuse for some 80s and 90s nostalgia.


    PureGear Groovy Gamer Case for iPhone 5 Blue Green PureGear Groovy Gamer Case for iPhone 5 in Blue and Green

     


    Aside from protecting your phone from scratches, dirt and everyday wear, PureGear's Retro Gamer cases will transport you back to a simpler time, when the height of pocket gaming consisted of getting a little metal ball to go in the direction you want.


    When we first posted about PureGear's Retro Gamer Cases on our Canadian blog back at the beginning of March, we said they were bound to be some of the coolest iPhone accessories of the year. And now that they're also making these cases for Galaxy S4, they're going to be some of the coolest accessories, period. And, now that they're starting to arrive at Pure Mobile, we feel pretty cool by association.

  • iOgrapher iPad mini video camera carrying case


    Whether you're the next great director or just an avid home videographer, a new iPad accessory will make your movie making a lot easier without the need for pro equipment. With a recently launched Kickstarter campaign, iOgrapher is a combination iPad carrying case and mount that turns your iPad mini into a sort of pro video camera.


    Branded as the "first all purpose film making case for the iPad Mini," the iOgrapher is a tough, high-grade plastic case for iPad mini equipped with side handles for smooth video recording.


    Like most good inventions, this ingenious iPad accessory was designed as a rel-world solution to an everyday problem faced by the inventor. As a high school media-arts teacher, iOgrapher creator Dave Basulto found there was room for improvement in the shaky videos his students shot on iPad.


    The problem wasn't really about the device itself. As Mashable notes, with its 1080p video recording quality th iPad mini is a pretty good video tool and could "serve students well as a shooting, editing and even a distribution device."


    But getting a stable hand is tricky with the iPad mini, so Basulto went to work on a mount-style case that could capitalize on the iPad's video capabilities.


    The iOgrapher is designed so that you can mount it on a tripod, monopod, or portable dolly for even more professional looking video. It can be fitted with different, separately sold lenses, like fisheye, wide angle, macro, and close-up.


    And, if you want cinematic sound quality, this iPad carrying case with handles also sports three accessories "shoes" at the top for attaching lightning audio gear.


    The concept is so well thought out and has such useful application that Basulto's already started working on prototypes for other Apple devices as well. He's also got video-centric accessories for iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPad 2 in the works.


    But, with the iPad mini's easy portability and ideal preview-sized screen, we're hedging our bets that the original model of this nifty new iPad carrying case will be most would-be directors' top choice.

  • iEqualizer-case_iPhone_5 The iEqualizer case for iPhone 5: a kind of silly and pretty useless accessory

    Here on the Pure Mobile blog, we like to bring you news about the best gadgets, including the coolest iPhone accessories we can find. We've seen all kinds of iPhone cases and skins in our day, from typical protective gear to more out there designs. Many are good in their own right. But hey, they can't all be winners.


    Case in point: the iEqualizer case for iPhone 5 from Strapya World. To be honest, we aren't really sure why Mashable thought this silly and impractical case was worth writing up at all.


    In fact, we don't even know why we're talking about it right now, except maybe to prove the point that we've perhaps gone a little too far with our mobile accessories.


    The idea behind the iEqualizer iPhone 5 case is that it slaps a sound "equalizer" on the back that does a little light show in response to noise. Ok, sort of cool, I guess. But, as it turns out, the thing's not even a true equalizer.


    As Mashable points out, "each of the bars isn't reacting to specific frequencies. Nay, it's just the whole array of blinkenlights reacting to any sound nearby." So, like, whatever.


    That on its own isn't enough to really kill this case as a conceptual accessory. Yes, a light-up case could look pretty cool in a dark night club. But if it's just for show, we'd at least expect this iPhone case to look cool over all. But it doesn't.


    This total disaster of an accessory actually adds a ton of bulk to your phone, making its thickness almost double. And, to make matters worse, it's got an idiotic-looking plastic appendage at the top, which Mashable says works as on on/off switch.


    Seriously? They couldn't think of a way to integrate a button that performs the same function?


    Why anyone would dream this up when there are so many great and great-looking iPhone 5 accessories already on the market is beyond us. Except the obvious attempt at a cash-grab, we can't even explain why this piece of garbage exists.

  • Otterbox Defender Case Samsung Galaxy S3 Black OtterBox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black

     


    In a head-to-head competition to find the best, we're starting a new feature on the Pure Mobile blog. In our accessories battles, we'll be pitting two similar accessories against one another and crowing a victor. This time, it's Samsung accessories in the ring, and two heavyweight Galaxy S3 carrying cases will be slugging it out


    Both of our challengers this week are designed to be heavy-duty, ultra durable and protective Galaxy S3 phone cases. Built to take a fair amount of abuse, only one will emerge victorious. Let's get started!


    Up first is  a contender that hardly needs an introduction – the OtterBox Defender Case for Galaxy S3. But will it defend its title? Well, things are looking good, as this multilayered, well-engineered accessory is certainly a heavy-hitter.


    Otterbox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 Black Layers OtterBox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black

     


    WIth three protective layers, including high-impact polycarbonate and durable, shock-resisting silicone, as well as a screen protector, the Defender will keep your phone safe from bumps, shocks, drops, dust and scratches. But it's unlikely you'll ever drop it anyhow, since it comes with a convenient holster to keep it in place.


    That's a lot of protection in an all-around solid carrying case, so it's no surprise the Defender is one of the leading accessories of its kind for the Galaxy S3. And it's going to be a hard one to beat.


    Now onto the challenger, the PureGear Dualtek Case for Galaxy S3. Like the OtterBox Defender, the Dualtek is designed to withstand rough abuse, witha  durable, layered construction that combines strength, toughness and flex.


    Puregear Dualtek Extreme Shock Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black PureGear Dualtek Extreme Shock Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 in Black

     


    Its 3M E.A.R. Corner Impact Protection controls shock by isolating vibrations, and its screen shield will keep your display safe from dings and scratches. This Galaxy S3 case is also quite slim and sleek, less bulky than the Defender, and provides superior grip that's comfortable in hand.


    So who won?


    As much as we like to root for the underdog, we'd have to give the champion's title to OtterBox in this case. Sometimes, the leader's just the leader for a reason, and though PureGear's Dulatek case provides a really great level of protection, the ultra-tough and durable thing is just OtterBox's forté. Well done, Defender case, well done!
