iLuv Wins With New Travel Gadgets

iLuv LogoiLuv will be familiar to many with their extensive range of matching accessories for tablets, smartphones and MP3 players. At CES this year, iLuv won no less than 5 CES Innovations Honoree awards to add to their collection of accolades. Todd gets a review of their latest products from Peter of iLuv.

The DreamTraveler is combined iPhone dock, USB charger and mains power strip squared aimed at those unfortunate souls who have to spend time in poorly equipped hotel rooms. It has two USB charging ports, three power outlets and an Apple connector for charging iPhones, iPods and iPads.

For the international traveller, iLuv has the RockWall, a dual USB charger that comes with the right mains plugs for different countries round the world.

Finally, the Mo’Beats is a portable tablet or smartphone cradle with Bluetooth wireless speakers that has a built-in lithium-ion battery which will run for about 4 hours.

All the products will be available in April or May. The Mo’Beats SRP is expected to be $89.99 but the website is currently showing $99.99. I think Peter gets his prices mixed up in the video as the RockWall is priced at $49.99 on the website and the DreamTraveler is $129.99.

Targus Introduces A New Line Of Bags

Targus, the premier computer bag maker, was at CES 2011 showing off their new line of products. To nobody’s surprise they are going heavy on the tablet cases this year – as PC makers scramble to go heavy on the tablets. They have been producing iPad cases for several months, but they give us a look here at the Samsung Galaxy Tab cases as well. But, beyond cases they also have a stylus, which can be used with any touch device, including those running iOS (we know Steve Jobs LOVES the stylus). They are also now producing a bluetooth keyboard as well.

Availability on these products is immediate and price points are mentioned during the interview.

Epocit Dual Sided Apple Accessory Magnetic Case Holder!

One of the biggest problem about carrying the iPod or Nano around, especially if you are a runner or walker is that they are too easy to drop. Which can lead to broken screens and other damage. One solution is being offer by Epocit which is offering a dual magnetic case for the 4th generation iPod and fifth generation Nano.

They expect to have a case for the iPhone sometime in 2011. You slide your iPod or Nano into the one sleeve and then stick the other piece inside your cloths where you want to carry it. Place the iPod or Nano with sleeve on top and it will stay. Since it weighs only 4 oz you hardly notice it. You can run, walk, dance, do what ever you want and it will not come off. Need to change something on the device, just pull it off along with the top sleeve, make the change and slap it back on and you are all set.

If you turn your device around so the front glass is facing the sleeve, this will protect the glass on the device if you happen to drop it when you are switching location.

So if you are a bit of a klutz or are rough on your iPod or Nano the Epocit maybe exactly the case you are looking for. Epocit says they are still working to get distributors for the case but expect it to be available for around $29.00 at multiple stores, and will come along with an optional arm band.
