A new range of materials and applications has been announced for egrips technology from Flexible Innovations.
A thin silicone-based product, egrips is used to safeguard mobile phones, PDAs and other handheld electronic devices, keeping these from falling and breaking by giving users a better grip. With egrips, devices don't slip out of a user's hands or off the edges of slippery surfaces.
The latest version of the product offers more grip than ever, resisting peeling under wear and tear, and works with Palm Pilots, pocket PCs, portable CD and DVD players, remote controls, cordless phones, GameBoy units, GPS units, messaging devices, MP3 players, notebook computers, scanners and two-way radios.
Products featuring egrips technology are kept from sliding off the dashboard, around the car or out of a purse or pocket. Phones and other devices feel better with egrips, and egrips don't absorb dirt or oils and are easy to clean with a damp cloth. The removable adhesive allows users to easily change colors and replace worn egrips.
Suggested retails are $9.95 and $10.95.
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.
