New products on display at the American International Toy Fair, held in N
ITASCA, ILL. -New from Fellowes at the 2001 International CES is a wheeled computer briefcase, with a luggage-style roller and a computer carrying case.
Made of waterproof faux leather material, complemented by heavy-duty brushed-silver hardware, the case offers a zippered interior compartment for a notebook computer.
A padded pocket between the retractable handle offers extra protection for a cellular phone or PDA, and an easy-access front pocket provides convenient storage space for business cards, pens, highlighters and media. An additional zippered compartment offers storage for file folders and binders.
Suggested retail is $79.99 for the 15 x 15 x 9-inch case.
Also new from Fellows is its Seven Outlet Metal Surge Protector, which has soft plastic end-caps that shield both ends from wear and tear. The unit provides up to seven surge-protect outlets, with spacing for AC adapters, and comes with a 6-foot cord and phone-line protection, making it ideal for the SOHO environment, Fellowes said.
The surge protector has a $50,000 connected-equipment warranty and a suggested $29.99 retail.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
