INTO THE AGE OF THE SMARTPHONE
Ok, I'm not into Facebook and Twitter and the social media scene, but recently, as they say. my lifestyle requirements changed. A long story and boring, but I had
to ditch my venerable (my daughter would say 'vintage') and trusty mobile for a "smartphone". Not by choice, but people insisted on sending me emails and
demanding answers when I was miles away from the environs of my PC (XP of course). Grandson gave me a crash course in Android after which I was none the
wiser, but he seemed to assess my new toy as "cool", while I was still trying to puzzle out how to answer phone calls. This was bad enough, but then I was
introduced to the world of the screen protector and an even cooler toy, viz, the protective case.. (very smart!) time to dust off the Mobile Fun account, thought I,
and I was right, both articles whizzed through the watches of the night to my abode - perfect!
So far, so good - but no - a new program (sorry "App") came my way to improve my navigating skills. Another long and boring saga again, which had the potential to
transform my new, shiny, screen-protected smartphone into a state-of-the-art sat nav. A serious hitch when the Google signal suddenly vanishes behind a tunnel or
some other obstruction clearly placed strategically to disrupt my carefully planned journey. Time to leave Google in the lurch and bless the Open Systems fraternity -
now I was complete... or so I thought. But how was I to place my new, shiny, screen-protected smartphone in a position which offered me a clear and unfettered
view of my planned path? Again, one enlisted the aid of the gurus of Mobile Fun. Could I obtain a gizmo which would hold my device solidy, without vibration or
wobble, and remain firmly attached to my grained pvc dashboard? The runes were favourable, the technology existed, the device was available and simply awaited
the application of my credit card details. Joy unconfined!
Now, the only situation to address was in-car charging, preferably eliminating the regular arguments between daughter and grandson as to who had forgotten to
charge the tablet and/or pack the charger. In this, too, Mobile Fun came up smiling - an in-car charger with usb outlets for both phone and tablet, together with a
digital readout of car battery voltage. How cool is that? Last on the shopping list was the 1.5 metre charging lead for the smartphone. Now, technology complete
and in-car peace and quiet, except for the intrusive woman in the sat nav App (yes, I'm learning).
It's normal to read extravagant claims for items and devices, but after a few test journeys, I have established that in my case, the claims are correct. The in-car
mounting is solid and superb, the charger perfect and the Mobile Fun service excellent. The customer, folks, is supremely satisfied and the defence rests...
PS: The shopping list:
Leather style wallet (S3 mini)
Exogear ExoMount Touch Universal Car Holder
Capdase Dual USB Charger and Monitor
Capdase Micro USB lead
