Holiday Gift Accessories for iPhones
Nov. 27, 2007 11:00 AM
Scott Bourne announced the top ten accessories that will
make every iPhone owner happy this Holiday.7) AppleCare for the iPhone -- Long-time Apple users know that AppleCare is a
must-have feature with any new Apple product. While most Apple products come
with good warranty support, extending that warranty is often very affordable
given the fact that almost ANY repair outside of warranty will cost more than
AppleCare protection. In the case of the iPhone, it extends hardware
coverage to two years from the date of iPhone purchase. $69.
With 1.4 million iPhones out there in the wild, chances are you know someone
who owns an iPhone. If that someone is on your holiday gift list, look at this
compilation of great gift ideas ranging from $2.95 to $349.95.
1) Vibe Duo HDST -- Replace the standard iPhone headphones with the Vibe
Duo HDST w/switcher. These headphones sound better than the original iPhone
headphones, have the same features and stay in your ears better. $99.95.
2) Screen Puff -- The Screen Puff is a lint-free cloth that you can use to
clean your iPhone screen. It won't scratch or harm the screen and is very handy
to carry. $2.95 each or $15.95 for the Happy Pack (all seven colors).
3) The Invisible Shield from Zagg, Inc. - The Invisible Sield is the best choice
for basic iPhone protection. The product comes in two versions: screen only or
full body. The $24.95 version provides full body protection. It's easier than
you think to apply the shield and Zagg has a series of videos on their site to
help walk you through the installation process.
4) Bang & Olufsen Earset 2 -- It's the most expensive bluetooth
headset for the iPhone. This headset is
as elegant as any headset can be. B&O is one of the few companies that can
match Apple in terms of design and delivery of cool products. $349.95.
5) Jawbone Bluetooth Headset - It comes with a voice activity sensor that
identifies and isolates speech and subtracts the unwanted background noise,
boosts the frequencies that increase voice intelligibility, offers up to 6
hours talk time and 200 hours standby time. It's very stylish, sounds great and
adds functionality to the phone. $119.99. http://www.jawbone.com/colors.php
6) Jabra EarGels -- The EarGel's design is such that it funnels sound into your
ear canal, and causes the "increase" in the audio output level. It
comes in a package of 6 gels (S, M, L - 1 each for your left and right ears).
$4.95 per package.
8) Monster iCableLink for iPhone - The Monster iCableLink is a headphone
adapter that allows iPhone users to enjoy iPhone music and listen to calls with
any set of headphones featuring a 1/8 ( 3.5mm) mini-jack headphone connector.
There are similar adapters on the market, but this one is flexible and thereby
reduces stress on the headphone jack. $9.95. Mfr. Part # 123893
9) Speck Toughskin iPhone Case - There are approximately 100 different cases
available for the iPhone. The Speck Toughskin offers very tough rubberized
protection that still allows the use of all the features of the iPhone without
removing the case. It also comes with a belt clip that acts like a stand.
10) Kensington Car Mount for iPod - Although made for iPods and MP3 players,
this is the device to get if you take your iPhone with you in the car. It is a
safe and effective way to mount the iPhone without blocking key dashboard
controls. Using a simple suction cup with lever, you can position and
re-position the car mount in one or more cars, offering complete flexibility.
The mount won't scratch the phone and offers a hands-free way to enjoy the
iPhone on the road. $29.99. http://us.kensington.com/html/12630.html
