NEW ORLEANS — Musubo will travel to the International CTIA Wireless show, held here this week, to introduce new additions to its line of iPhone 4 and 4S cases. The company can be found at booth 3050.
The Eden case ($34.99) features two layers of protection: a polycarbonate frame and a silicon interior. It provides access to all ports and comes in a choice of seven colors: blue, black, green, orange, purple, Rose Pink and white.
The soft-touch Sexy case ($24.99) has silicon protection and a two-tone pattern meant to mimic a ripped stocking. Six colors are offered: blue, black, magenta, purple, red and white.
The soft-touch Ripple case ($29.99), meanwhile, comes in black, chartreuse, neon magenta, purple and red.
Finally, the Double X case ($34.99) is designed to provide vibration resistance and impact protection in an ultra-durable soft-touch material, the company said. It covers the case while still revealing segments of the iPhone. The Double X comes in blue, black and purple.
All of the cases include folding video stands.
Bracketron will be at booth 1221 showing off its MetalDock, a heavy-duty dock and charging station for the iPhone 4. As its name suggests, the dock has a metal construction, although the company said its light weight makes it an option for travelers or those who use alarm clock apps.
Features include rubberized feet to hold the dock in place and a 3-foot cable that connects to a USB port. It can be used in portrait or landscape mode. Suggested retail is $34.99.
At the neighboring Pepcom event, Jabra will highlight its Supreme UC Bluetooth headset that is geared toward the mobile worker who uses universal communications (UC) technology.
The headset features a nano, pre-paired Bluetooth USB adapter that lets it connect to PCs and use the headset for UC-supported calls or traditional mobile phone calls. Users can reportedly stay connected to both devices and switch between mobile and UC calls with the push of a button.
It has active noise-cancellation via an electronic chipset to generate an “anti-noise” sound, Jabra said, which removes ambient noise heard by the person wearing the headset. Other features include voice controls and a status indicator light. Suggested retail is $149.
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.
