verykool s470 Black Pearl Android smartphone review

The verykool s470 is a full featured 4.7″ no contract/unlocked dual SIM Android phone marketed as an affordable “buy it and use it anywhere” device.

FAVI Bluetooth PC / Tablet Keyboard and Presenter with Laser Pointer Review

The FAVI Bluetooth PC / Tablet Keyboard and Presenter with Laser Pointer (yes, that is the actual product name) is a handy little Bluetooth keyboard with integrated touchpad and laser pointer.

All of this capability is provided in a “flip-up” ear-piece design to allow for more compact transportation, to boot. The tradeoff here is going to be the weight/size of the headset. Since …

The iDuo2Go Charge and Sync Cable for iPod, iPhone, and iPad with USB 3.0 SD Card Reader from Atech Flash Technology is a surprisingly useful if simple bit of mobile gear.
