iOTT_1TCH_QI_BLK_O_IMG04_750__11267.1440677509.1000.1000As consumer behaviour changes, so too do manufacturers’ products as they attempt to keep up with an evolving technological landscape. Today’s customers value simplicity and convenience which has resulted in many manufacturers ditching complex, cable-loaded designs in favour of basic, cordless functionality.

One such product that perfectly illustrates this concept is iOttie’s Easy One Touch Wireless car mount, aimed specifically at people who are always on the go and always in need of a charge!

With the Easy One Touch Wireless, gone are the days where you have to go trawling through your car to locate various cords and cables. Just as vehicle manufacturers have evolved to create more streamlined and minimalistic vehicle interiors, so too has iOttie and their car mounts.

With built-in Qi Standard Wireless Charging, the Easy One Touch Wireless is an extremely convenient and versatile mounting solution as it is compatible with Qi standard wireless charging smartphones.

Not only that, but it also incorporates one of the best features of the iOttie car mount brand, the One Touch Lock & Release function, which is specifically designed to allow for safe mounting and unmounting of the user’s smartphone device.

Viewing angles are also improved thanks to a telescopic arm used to bring the device closer and a 17mm ball joint that allows the mount to alternate between landscape and portrait mode, all while charging your device!

The iOttie Easy One Touch Wireless fits devices between 2.2-3.3 inches wide and also includes a  micro usb charging cable to provide power to the mount, as well as a dashboard pad for mounting on all types of surfaces.

Priced at €99.99, the Easy One Touch Wireless is available now from our website!

Turn Back Time: 5 Of Our Favourite Flip Phones

Standard

While the evolution of smartphones and touchscreens marked the start of something new, it also signaled the end of something else: flip-phones. Gone were the days when you could terminate a call by slamming your phone shut whenever you became exasperated by the person on the other end. Though some were sad for a while, just like any new technology, people learned to adapt. And so, very quickly, flip phones became a thing of the past.

Fast forward to 2015 and it looks like they could be about to make a comeback. Asian telecommunications company LG, has just announced plans to release a new flip-phone model entitled the Gentle, which will run on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop software.

In honour of this news, we’ve taken a trip down memory lane to revisit 5 of our favourite flip-phones:

Motorola V550

This sturdy little flip-phone came packed with a camera, mp3 player, downloadable screensavers and more! We loved the clamshell design and vibrant blue finish, and the battery lasted way longer than our iPhone!. Sigh.

Nokia 7373nokia 7373

The 7373 from Nokia wasn’t so much a phone as it was a fashion statement. Seriously, what girl could resist that gorgeous pink and cream floral design? Aesthetics aside, the phone also came with a camera, a built in stereo radio, 8mb of internal memory, and an SD card with an additional 2mb of storage.

Sony Ericsson W300i

Before Androids and iPhones, Sony Ericsson was viewed by many as the go-to phone manufacturer. Known for their high quality music players and impressive battery life, any self-respecting “cool kid” owned a Sony Ericsson phone.The company’s popular W300i flip-phone featured bluetooth, a phone book that could store up to 1,000 contacts, as well as a camera, and best of all, an mp3 player that could read songs in MP3 and MP4 formats.

Motorola  V3 Razr

While this flip phone came in a variety of colours, the hot pink version was another favourite among girls. When it was initially released in 2004, this slick and stylish model had been exclusively marketed as a fashion phone. However, within a year, the price was lowered and by July 2006, the phone had sold over 50 million units. To this day, the Motorola V3 remains the best selling clamshell phone, selling more than 130 million units during its four year run.

LG VX8100

This sleek little phone from LG had bluetooth, a megapixel camera, loud stereo speakers, and an mp3 player. While it may not have been the best selling flip phone of all time, we loved its bold turquoise colour and the fact that the volume controls were on the front!

Nokia celebrates 150 years

Standard

Nokia evolucion Finnish telecommunications company Nokia celebrated its 150th birthday this week. The company, which was founded by mining engineer Fredrick Idestam and his friend Leo Mechelin in 1865, originally began as a ground wood pulp mill before eventually switching to telecommunications in the 1960’s. In 2000, Nokia launched the 3310 mobile phone which proved to be very popular, selling 126 million units worldwide. This success was quickly followed up with the Nokia 1110 launched in 2003, which shipped over 200 million units, becoming the best selling mobile phone of all time. Prior to being overshadowed by Apple, Nokia was once recognised as the world’s largest mobile phones vendor. In September 2013, Microsoft announced that it would acquire Nokia’s mobile phone business as part of a deal worth €5.44 billion. Microsoft subsequently decided to drop the Nokia name, stating that all future mobile phones would be produced under the name “Microsoft Lumia”. In 2014, Nokia began licensing product designs and technologies to third part manufacturers in an attempt to maintain a continued presence for the Nokia brand in the consumer electronics market. On the 15th of April 2015, Nokia announced that it would acquire French telecommunications equipment company Alcatel-Lucent for €15.6 billion. Nowadays, Nokia specialises in navigation, mapping, and network technologies. Take at look at some of Nokia’s most notable mobile phones below. Happy Birthday Nokia!
