Sony Xperia J €199
The Xperia J shouldn’t be overlooked. It may not be quite as flashy at the T (Bond’s phone), but it has its strong points. It comes with the Sony Walkman app, so you can organise your music. It features 4GB of internal memory, but that can be expanded with a 32GB MicroSD card, so you can even store movies. It’s got a great screen .
If it was a Bond character, it would be the one in the background, quietly plugging away, getting things done, while Bond takes all the attention and explodes things.
Logotech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad €99.95
The Logitech Keyboard Case for the iPad takes its inspiration form the Smart Cover. Instead of forcibly shoving your iPad inside a bulky case that also acts a keyboard, the new version takes its inspiration from the Smart Cover and uses magnets to attach to the tablet. The end result is a slimline case that still protects your iPad from scratches and damage, and can be easily removed. It connects wirelessly to the iPad when it functions as a keyboard, and comes in three colours – black, white and red.
Ferrari Scuderia P200 Headphones €239
Forget about headphones designed by rappers; everyone has them these days. Instead, take a look at the Ferrari Scuderia P200 headphones. Inspired by the racing team, they certainly stand out in the crowd, looking more like something you’d see the pit crew wearing.
Made by Logic3, they’re compatible with the iPhone and other mobile players, with three-button and one-button inline remotes. They’re robust too, made with materials that won’t easily fall apart. Plus they sound good too.
Tech21 Impact Band €25
How to make an iPhone case sound more interesting: give it an interesting name. This isn’t an ordinary case; this is an “impact band”. It protects that nice shiny edge on the iPhone 5 that Apple was so proud of – and that without some sort of protection will doubtless take a few dings over time.
Tech21 uses a lot of jargon to explain exactly why its case is good: impactology, D30 impact material. Really what you need to know is that it will absorb the bumps your phone will inevitably take without making it look like a brick.
