The OneCable Sync and Charge Cable is the answer to all our cable woes. Personally I’m fed up of having different cables for each gadget and constantly having to switch cables. In my car alone I have a cable for my iPhone, cable for my Kindle and cable for my boyfriend’s phone – now I can get rid of all those cables and replace them with one – the OneCable.
What the OneCable offers is the ability to charge a number of different gadgets as the cable has three different connectors: Apple, MicroUSB and MiniUSB. This means that now you don’t have to carry a number of wires, simply choose the connector you need and start charging… simples!
I’ve been using the OneCable for a few days now to get a feel of how useful it is ‘in the real world’. I’ve mainly been using it as my iPhone 4s car charger and switching the connector to charge my boyfriend’s phone too. However where the one cable really shone is when we visited the Safari Park – the cable allowed us to charge up the camera whilst using it to take photos, so the camera never ran out of battery. Plus the long retractable wire meant we had the length to take shots out of both the driver side and passenger windows, with the charger still being connected.
Using the OneCable has banished the need to faff around trying to find a cable, I carry it in my bag (along with the kitchen sink) and it’s there whenever I or my boyfriend, or my mum, or whoever needs to charge their phone.
One really useful thing I’ve found is that the OneCable fits into the bottom of my FM Transmitter so I still get to play music from my iPhone and charge it at the same time. Even better, the length of the cable reaches my mobile holder, so I can dock my phone and charge it too.
An area where the OneCable can really show off is when going on holiday; instead of packing a number of chargers and socket converters, all you need is one socket converter, one plug and the OneCable – all phones are counted for and most of your gadgets too. This means you save crucial suitcase space and don’t have to worry about forgetting one of your many wires when returning home.
Having used it I’m a big fan of the OneCable and have found it to be rather useful but what do you think on it? Let us know through the usual channels!

Angry Birds Space
Angry Birds Space has hit the app stores for a number of handsets today and I’ll admit I’m already a little addicted.
I’m a massive Angry Birds fan anyway having played (and completed) all the games they’ve bought out for iPhone; plus I’ve got an Angry Birds iPhone cover too.
Angry Birds Space creators, Rovio have said that the game’s: ’a completely new game with innovative new gameplay, but with some of the familiar Angry Birds elements that fans already know and love‘.
I’m really liking the impact gravity has in the game and the hidden extra Space Invaders style levels – definitely a great added feature to the game.
To celebrate the release of Angry Birds Space we’ve sourced a brand new Angry Birds iPad 3 cover.
Gear 4 iPad 3 Angry Birds Executive Cover
The Gear4 Angry Birds iPad 3 Executive cover is the latest iPad 3 cover to feature those Angry Angry Birds. Made from a durable and lightweight leather material, the cover is hard-wearing and protects your new iPad from day to day bumps, drops, scrapes and scratches.
Perfect for both business and social thanks to its sleek design, this iPad 3 case allows you to show your allegiance to Angry Birds in a discreet way. This is due to the small Red Bird character features on the bottom corner of the case.
The front cover of this iPad case doubles up as a handy stand for your new iPad so that you can stream media, type and swipe at the most comfortable angle. The interior of the front cover sports a soft microfibre material, so when the cover is closed your screen is fully protected and cushioned from any shocks. This means it remains looking newer for longer.
As expected this case allows you full access to all the ports and features of your iPad so that it remains fully functioning at all times. This is definitely the perfect iPad cover for Angry Birds fans and professionals alike.

Official Playstation Vita Starter Kit
The PS Vita was released in the UK this week and so far we’ve heard nothing but praise for the mighty handheld console. The Vita has a 5″ OLED touchscreen, two analogue sticks, a touch sensitive back and front and rear facing cameras helping to make game play pretty out of this world. The idea is that you have the gameplay of your HDTV in the palm of your hand.
We’ve sourced a great range of PS Vita accessories to help you protect your Vita in every circumstance and keep it going no matter where you are.
One of the best accessories we have is the Official Playstation Vita Starter Kit. It’s got everything you need to get you started from cases, a screen protector and a cleaning cloth to a wrist strap; so your Vita is protected from head to toe and easy to carry around. Let’s take a closer look at it:
The first accessory included in the Starter Kit is a PS Vita case. There’s two cases include; a flip case and a pouch. The flip case is designed to protect and store your Vita to stop it being damaged. It simply flips open and you can use your Vita. The pouch is a softer PS Vita cover which cushions your Vita and is great for storing your Vita when it’s not in use.

Also included in the Starter Pack is a PS Vita games case. This tough EVA plastic case lets you store a number of your games so they won’t get damaged – you could even store your PS Vita memory cards too. It’s a great way to stop you from losing your games and misplacing them whilst stopping them getting broken.
Another really useful accessory in the pack is the PS Vita screen protector which will help to keep your touchscreen looking newer for longer, as the last thing you want is a damaged screen. It doesn’t make you screen lose any sensitivity and doesn’t detract from the vivid visuals, but does stop your screen from being damaged by dust, dirt and scratches.
The last two accessories in this pack are a wrist strap and cleaning cloth. The cloth helps to keep your Vita looking shiny and new, so you can’t see any fingerprints on it and the wrist strap just gives you another way to carry your Vita around safely as dropping it is the last thing you want to do.
When it’s all put together it shows just how good value for money PS Vita bundles are, as when teamed with your PS Vita charger you have everything you need to keep you going.

Sony’s Playstation Vita is out later this month and it’s specs have got us a bit excited.
Boasting a 5-inch OLED touchscreen, you can expect vivid colours and an extremely high resolution from the Vita, as Playstation want you to enjoy the same experience with the Vita as you would on your big HD TV.
It’s also got a pair of analogue sticks, like your old school PS3 pad, but what sounds really cool about the Vita is the touch sensitive area on the back of the handheld console. It’s like a laptop trackpad in that you can control aspects of the Vita all from a comfortable angle. Throw in the front and rear cameras and internal sensors and the Vita really is shaping up to be a huge competitor on the market.
We’ve started to source a range of Playstation Vita accessories to help protect your console and it’s accessories, plus a PS Vita charger range so that you can keep playing for longer.

Here at Mobile Fun we have a number of online shops, which have some great Christmas presents lined up this year. Here’s a quick run down of some of our best ideas!
This year there has been an explosion of new “compact system cameras” which have all of the benefits of the smaller compact cameras, with the quality of lenses and picture quality which you only used to be able to get with an SLR. With their interchangeable lenses, and numerous accessories, cameras are going to be big gifts this Christmas. LoveCases has a huge range of camera cases
to choose from, and they’ve gone to the trouble of measuring every case they have to get the perfect fit for your model. Some of the most popular at the moment are the Panasonic Lumix Cases
, Nikon Coopix Cases
with the Nikon L120 Cases
and Sony NEX 5n cases
being the most popular models. Why not take a look at their full range?
Another popular gift is a men’s wash bag
. LoveCases have some fantastic designs, including a retro beano wash bag
which you can see above. There’s also a MG wash bag
and an atlas design
, by Wild and Wolf, who have a reputation for making some lovely gifts.
GearZap are another of MobileFun’s sites, and they also have some great gift ideas. There are some seriously funky laptop sleeves
to choose from, including this also 13” black satchel by high fashion brand Fabrix. With it’s stunning felt finish and unique design, this is a perfect present to leave lying under your Christmas tree for someone.
The Kindle is of course a massive success this year, as it was in 2010 with Amazon launching yet another model, the awesome Kindle 4. Now keyboard-less, the Kindle is more compact, and a different shape meaning that lots of people have been buying a Kindle Cover as a gift. There are lots of great designs around, book style, flip covers, ones with built in stands, and also kindle cases with lights have proved extremely popular.
Gaming is massive this year, with some huge game launches having taken place in the last few months. Modern Warfare 3 is far an away the biggest game of 2011, smashing sales records that it set last year with the prequel. Our sister site GamingZap have some amazing PS3 accessories, including the ever dependable Sony PS3 controller, and the brand new wireless PS3 headset which is in hot demand. These would be perfect to give to that special gamer in your life!
