Avantree Audition Bluetooth Headphones with NFC coming soon

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Avantree Audition Bluetooth Stereo NFC Headphones    Avantree Audition Bluetooth Stereo NFC Headphones

Our Avantree Hive Bluetooth headphones are some of the most popular on Mobile Fun, having garnered over a hundred reviews with an impressive 92% average rating. Today, we’re announcing Avantree’s next tier of Bluetooth headphones, the Avantree Audition. The Audition feature improved sound quality, NFC connectivity and a whopping 40 hours of wireless playback before a recharge is needed.

So the Audition headphones come with both NFC and Bluetooth. That means you can make a Bluetooth connection with your NFC-enabled smartphone in just a touch, then enjoy wireless music and calls at a distance of up to 10 metres. Of course, you can still pair normally over Bluetooth to devices without NFC, including smartphones, tablets, PCs, laptops and more.

The headphones include a microphone and buttons, allowing hands-free calling whether that’s on your phone or via Skype on your PC. Music controls are also fully catered for, so you can play or pause and adjust the volume. Thanks to Multipoint technology, you can also connect to two devices simultaneously, like your phone and your PC.

Music sounds great too, thanks to the headphones’ use of the new aptX Bluetooth codec, which offers higher-quality sound quality than standard Bluetooth. Digital sound enhancement and a good grip around your ears ensures top quality sound.

The headphones last for around 40 hours per charge. Once you run out of juice, you can switch to a 3.5mm audio cable to keep listening, then recharge via mini USB.

The Avantree Audition are a set of headphones with undeniable sound quality, a strong feature set and a good price.

For more information on the Avantree Audition headphones, just visit the product page linked above. We’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of these headphones, and we hope you are too!

ASUS Miracast Dongle

The ASUS Miracast Dongle is the easiest way to mirror what’s happening on your smartphone or tablet onto your HDTV, in real time. You can use it to watch movies, play games and listen to music quickly and easily, without needing a Smart TV or even to connect up wires from your device to your TV.

Setting up the Miracast Dongle is simple. Just plug the dongle’s USB adapter into a power source (either a powered USB port or an AC adapter), then plug the dongle into your TV’s HDMI port. Then, all you need to do is log onto your wireless network with your device, and follow the instructions that will appear on-screen.

Once you’ve set up the Dongle, you just need to turn on mirroring, and anything you see on your smartphone or tablet’s screen will be shown on your connected HDTV. So you can queue up a video on Netflix, play your favourite mobile game or surf the web. Everything will be transmitted to your TV in gorgeous 1080p Full HD, with minimal input lag thanks to the 802.11 N wireless link.

If you’re sick of straining your eyes or holding a tiny screen up to your face,  then this will be absolute heaven. Videos look noticeably better and games are much more immersive as well.

The Dongle is portable too. It weighs just 35 grams, and can easily be slipped into a pocket or bag. That means you can use it with the projector at the office, the TV in your hotel suite or just the monitor at your desk. Wherever you are, it’s easy to kick back and relax with your favourite content on the biggest screen in the room.

The ASUS Miracast Dongle works with a wide range of smartphones and tablets, too. It’s compatible with Android devices running version 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and up, Windows devices running Windows 8.1 (a free upgrade to Windows 8) and BlackBerry devices running system software 10.2 and above.

The Dongle is in stock now, and you can see more details via the product page below:

BlackBerry 9720 sim-free arrives at Mobile Fun

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

You can save a lot of money in the mobile market by staying a bit behind the curve, and that’s exemplified by the BlackBerry 9720. The phone doesn’t include the new BlackBerry 10 OS and comes at a much kinder price tag, offering that classic BlackBerry experience with a full QWERTY keyboard.

The BlackBerry 9720 is far from outdated though. It includes a 2.8″ 480 x 360 pixel touchscreen with that excellent keyboard, allowing you to type or touch as it’s convenient. The phone also includes a 5 megapixel camera with flash, capable of capturing day-to-day moments with ease. The 9720 also includes a micro SD slot to complement its internal storage, allowing 32 GB of additional memory.

One thing that classic BlackBerry phones excelled at was standby battery life, and that remains true for the 9720. The phone comes with a 1450 mAh battery that’s good for a staggering 432 hours – 18 days – of standby time. Talk time is also good at 7 hours, allowing for almost a full work day of talking. Bluetooth 2.1+EDR is supported, allowing for compatibility with the vast majority of headsets and other Bluetooth accessories on the market.

If you’re not convinced by BlackBerry 10 and you want to save some money, the BlackBerry 9720 is an excellent choice. It’s a new sim-free phone with a 24 month manufacturer’s warranty, yet doesn’t cost much more than a used BlackBerry phone from years gone by.

For more information on this old-school BlackBerrry smartphone, check out the sim-free BlackBerry 9720 product page. You can also check out our selection of BlackBerry 9720 accessories, which should grow to include both third-party and first-party accessories.

What do you make of the BlackBerry 9720? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for reading the article and be sure to have a great day.

Top 5 BlackBerry Q5 accessories

Friday, August 9th, 2013

Earlier today we looked at five of the best BlackBerry Q5 cases on the market, and now we’re going to have a look at the rest of this phone’s accessory ecosystem. Because we’ve already covered the cases, we’ll leave this out – if you want case recommendations, check out that earlier article! Without further ado, let’s get rolling.

5. Samsung 32 GB MicroSD HC Card – Class 6

OK, so first things first. You only get 8 GB of internal space on the Q5, so if you want to listen to music or watch some videos then more storage space is a must. The phone supports up to 32 GB of micro SD HC storage, so that’s exactly what I’m recommending. Samsung are a dependable maker of SD cards, so we’ll go with their Class 6 card, a good mix of speed, capacity and cost.

4. KitSound BoomBar Portable Bluetooth Speaker

The speakers on the Q5 are like those on most phones – not exactly stellar. If you want to listen to some music on your phone at home or at the beach, then what you need is a portable Bluetooth speaker. One of the best is the KitSound BoomBar, which is rechargeable and comes with a three year warranty. Sound quality is surprisingly good and it’s more than loud enough to fill a medium-sized room.

3. Clip and Talk Bluetooth Car Kit V3+

The Clip and Talk is perhaps the most popular thing we sell on Mobile Fun, with over 1,100 reviews averaging a 92% score. If you want to take calls in your car, then it’s ideal, combining a low price with an easy to use button scheme and good sound quality. You get a massive 1080 hours of standby time too, ensuring that the Clip and Talk is always there when you need it!

2. Genuine BlackBerry Q5 Screen Protect Twin Pack

Our first first-party accessory on the list is this official Q5 screen protector pack. There’s not too much to say here, just that this is a solid screen protector cut to precisely the right size. If you’re worried about scratching your Q5′s screen, then this is what you need.

1. STK BTH12 Mini Bluetooth Headset

Bluetooth headsets are the perfect complement to BlackBerry phones, and one of the most popular is the STK BTH12. This a low-cost, minute Bluetooth headset that still offers good sound quality and decent standby time. An easy choice!

I hope you’ve found these selections useful. As always, your thoughts would be appreciated via the comments below. Thanks for reading the article and have a good one!

Top 5 BlackBerry Q5 cases

Friday, August 9th, 2013

BlackBerry phones have historically been popular with two groups – business folk and youths. We’ve seen the former served with the Z10 and Q10, and now BlackBerry’s addressing that latter group with the release of the more affordable BlackBerry Q5. Today we’re going to look at some of the best cases available right now for the Q5 that should satisfy all branches of the BlackBerry fan base.

5. BlackBerry Q5 Leather Pocket – Black

We begin with a case that’s definitely tailored more towards the business crowd – the leather pocket. As the name implies, this is a case that covers the front, rear and sides of the Q5, so you’ll need to take the phone out of the case to use it. While it’s a bit more effort to use it, once released from its leather material prison the phone is completely unencumbered. The case is ideal for mounting on a belt, and uses the Q5′s proximity sensor to lock the phone when it enters the case, saving battery life.

4. FlexiShield Wave for BlackBerry Q5 – White

Next up is the first of our third-party cases, the FlexiShield Wave. This case is inexpensive but adds the minimum amount of protection that you need to avoid scratches and damages from small falls or knocks. The case adds very little bulk to the phone and can be worn at all times, ensuring a good level of baseline protection. The case also includes a stylish wave design on the rear that looks pretty great in the white version, while the black colour scheme is a little more muted. Both cases are solid examples of cheap and cheerful.

3. BlackBerry Q5 Flip Shell Leather – Black

We return to a first-party BlackBerry case now, with the Flip Shell Leather. This flip case is made out of genuine leather, granting that luxurious look and feel. The case is embossed with a nice BlackBerry logo that will definitely stand out in a crowd, too. The flip action works well to ensure that you can always access your phone rapidly.

2. Case-Mate Barely There – White

Our penultimate case is the Case-Mate Barely There, a perennial favourite of mine. This Q5 cover looks excellent, with a super slim figure and a nice matte white or black colour scheme. The impact resistant plastic shell grants a moderate amount of protection too. Best of all, this case is quite affordable too.

1. BlackBerry Q5 Premium Shell – Black/Granite

Our final case is the Premium Shell, again made by BlackBerry themselves. This ensures a perfect fit every time, including cutouts in all of the right places to allow for the phone’s ports and buttons to be accessible while the case is on. The hard shell is both protective and handsome, with a lip protecting the screen from being shattered in a drop. The rear BlackBerry logo looks great too. An all-around great case that has few weaknesses!

OK, well that’s all the time we have for now! I hope you’ve found these selections useful. If you have your own recommendations to make or you’d like to receive a personalised recommendation, please let me know in the comments below. Thanks for reading the article and have a great weekend!
