Android Pal

Pantech Wireless introduced the Pocket Android 2.3, a 4G smartphone that’s pre-loaded with Kindle by Amazon and Google Books. Its 4-inch SVGA touchscreen display boasts a 4:3 aspect ratio, which offers about 20 percent more viewing area than most other 4-inch display handsets. The Pocket’s 5.0 megapixel camera features custom photo settings and HD video options.

Desk-Free Mouse 

The Ion Wireless Air Mouse Glove frees users to move all around the room. With a mobile range of more than 35 feet, the ergonomic glove runs on Windows, Mac, Linux and Android systems. It has an adjustable band and plugs in via USB module. It also provides left/right click, a pause button and an on/off switch.

Keyboard on Board

ZAGG’s ZAGGkeys FLEX universal keyboard and stand is designed for smartphones and tablet computers. Compatible with both Apple and Android devices, the keyboard accessory lets users add a keyboard to any smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth technology. The rechargeable built-in battery provides months of use between charges. The stand also doubles as a keyboard cover.

Flipping Smart

SMARTdesks’ iLid is a convertible computer table that allows an LCD monitor to flip open for immediate use and stow back into a flat work surface. Users flip open the monitor panel, mounted on a friction-fitting hinge, and then adjust the screen to the desired angle. The keyboard sits on a storage shelf or optional pull-out tray. Optional locking casters allow mobility and various desk configurations within a workspace. Double and single iLid computer stations are available.
