The Surface Pro 3 remains one of the best working tablets in the world, thanks to its impressive specifications, excellent connectivity options and a range of powerful accessories. Today, we’re going to take a look at five cases and accessories which allow you to get the most out of your Surface Pro 3.
1. Surface Pro 3 Premium Accessory Pack - Black
This accessory pack contains a range of essential items for the Surface Pro 3. You’ll receive a leather-style case and a screen protector to keep your SP3 in good condition. The case keeps all ports free and accessible, and also includes a stand. Finally, you’ll get a high-quality Bluetooth keyboard that allows you to use the tablet more like a laptop. This is perfect for writing documents, responding to emails and other long-form writing tasks.
It’s also possible to buy the leather-style case or screen protector separately, if you’re not interested in the other accessories.
2. Urban Armor Gear Scout Folio Case - Red, Black
If you’re looking for considerable protection for your Surface Pro 3, you might consider the Urban Armor Gear Scout. This folio case is a class-leader when it comes to keeping your Note 3 safe, offering protection from impacts, scratches and even water. The lightweight honeycomb interior matches well with a protective outer case, forming a significant barrier against potential damage. The case is fully compatible with the Microsoft Type Cover and has an adjustable viewing stand for that convenient laptop-like form factor. The case comes in red and black.
3. Incipio Roosevelt Slim Folio - Cyan, Red, Black
The Incipio Roosevelt is a slim and stylish addition to your Surface Pro 3. It provides a little less protection than the Scout, but has thinner dimensions and comes with a useful holder for the Surface Pen. Like the other cases we’re highlighting today, the Roosevelt comes with a media stand and full access to the Surface Pro 3′s ports and other features. The cases are available in some cool colours too, including the cyan shown above.
4. Maroo Executive Leather Sleeve - Black
This executive sleeve offers a stylish way to keep your Note 3 fully safe and enclosed when it’s not in use. Unlike other cases which are meant to be worn at all times, this pouch allows you to have a completely unencumbered Surface Pro 3 when you need to use it. The sleeve is made from genuine, high-quality leather and a soft microsuede inside, providing lasting protection against scratches and drops. It looks cool too, with a blue lining and a black exterior.
5. Noreve Tradition B Leather Case - Black
Our final case today is another full genuine leather option, but this one is a folio case instead of a pouch. That means you get protection at all times in exchange for a little added bulk. The case is stunning, with a stylish black / grey leather look, feel and smell. The case includes a desk stand and internal pockets for credit cards or notes. This premium case is perfect for businesspeople and others looking to make a statement with their tablet of choice.

If you’ve got a Surface Pro 3, you already know how productive you can be on this tablet / laptop hybrid. But if you want to really maximise its capabilities, then you can turn it into a workstation with this official docking station!
The docking station makes it easy to use the Surface Pro 3 on your desk, by adding easy-to-access ports that allow you to connect many more peripherals and devices. You’ll have more USB ports (6 in total!) than many desktop computers, allowing you to connect hard drives, mice, keyboards, gamepads, CD drives and printers.
Connecting multiple monitors is possible too – you can have three displays in total, including the Surface’s own screen, which is fantastic for having multiple windows open at once. For example, you might have Word open on the built-in display, while you look at a reference webpage on a monitor.
There’s even an ethernet port to provide the fastest possible network access with minimal lag and no risk of poor wireless performance.
As well as adding ports, you’ll also find that the Docking Station is a great home for your Surface. You’ll benefit from a convenient upright viewing angle that’s perfect for work or play. Your Surface will also charge while it’s in the dock, ensuring that your battery will always be topped up when you’re ready to hit the road.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Docking Station is the ultimate upgrade for your Surface. For more information, including live pricing and availability data, please visit the product page linked below. You can also see more accessories in the relevant category, also linked below:

The Logitech P710e is quite a cool piece of kit; a combined stand and speaker for your smartphone or tablet. Let’s take a closer look at what it’s capable of!
The P710e continues Logitech’s history of acoustic excellent with a big sound for its size, and advanced algorithms used to tune both microphone and speaker to perfection. Wideband audio, acoustic noise cancellation and a noise-cancelling microphone ensure that you’ll be able to hear your friends and colleagues in the best possible quality.
While your phone or tablet is in the speakerphone, it’ll be placed at a perfect position for video calls and keeping an eye on incoming notifications. This works well for phones in landscape or portrait mode, and tablets in landscape mode.
Long battery life is another benefit to the speakerphone; the P710e can survive for up to 15 hours of talktime between charges. That means even for the longest workdays, you’ll be able to reach the end without issue – and if you talk or listen to music less, you’ll be able to easily let that stretch to multiple days.
The P710e includes an array of touch controls, letting you easily adjust the volume, take or reject calls and more. The buttons respond instantly to your touch and onboard LEDs will flash to alert you of incoming calls.
The P710e is optomised for a range of communication services, and is Skype certified, Microsoft Lync compatible and Cicso compatible. You can expect great performance with almost every business-grade Unified Communications platform.
The Logitech P710e is coming soon to Mobile Fun. To place your pre-order and to view additional information, visit the product page below:

Today I’d like to introduce the OTONE VTXsound, a pair of premium headphones for music lovers. The headphones’ stylish, modern design include a pair of dynamic 40mm drivers perfectly tuned for a wide dynamic range and rich bass.
These cans block out outside noise expertly with active noise cancellation too, leaving you with just the music you want to listen to. Active Noise Cancellation can be used for 20 hours at a time, and uses a pair of AAA batteries so that full battery life is just a swap away. Of course, you can also use these headphones without the active noise cancellation turned on, and then no batteries are required.
You can also use the VTXsound headphones for calls, thanks to an integrated microphone and an in-line remote. This remote also allows easy control of music playback, letting you skip tracks, adjust the volume, play and pause without needing to adjust your smartphone or MP3 player.
The VTXsound headphones use a standard 3.5mm connector for music and calls, so you don’t need to worry about pairing over Bluetooth or sapping your phone’s battery. Just plug and play.
For a limited time, we’re also offering a free OTONE Accento portable speaker with each pair of OTONE VTXsound headphones. This Bluetooth speaker offers eight to ten hours of music playback and weighs only 300 grams for great portability. The Accento includes a microSD card too, so you can play your music without using any of your smartphone’s battery life at all. Playback controls on the speaker’s periphery and two 40mm dynamic drivers make for a winning Bluetooth speaker.
The OTONE VTXsound headphones and Accento portable speaker are coming soon to Mobile Fun. For more information or to place your pre-order, please visit the product page linked below:

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is quite a unique specimen; the very first tablet to ever be made by the soon-to-be-acquired handset division of Nokia. The tablet runs Windows RT, making it quite similar to Microsoft’s own Surface 2 tablet. Both devices work quite well as tablets alone, but where they really excel (and where both companies have invested considerable design talent) is as extremely slim, detachable laptops.
That form factor and functionality is provided by these tablets’ keyboard covers; for Microsoft we have the Touch Cover and the Type Cover, and for Nokia we have the object of this very article, the Nokia Power Keyboard.
The Power Keyboard, as the name suggests, provides a full keyboard and trackpad to the Lumia 2520. It also serves as a stand, keeping the 2520 in a convenient angled position. This makes it much easier to be productive; you can write emails, code and even articles like the very one you’re reading now. Windows RT’s unique ability to display two items on-screen at once and the inclusion of Microsoft Office free with every tablet, grants a kind of productivity can’t be matched on iOS and Android. If you’ve chosen a Windows tablet for those reasons, then it makes sense to follow them to their logical conclusion with the Power Keyboard.
Of course, there’s another word in this product’s name besides “keyboard”, which is “power”. This refers to the battery integrated into the cover, which adds 50% more longevity to the Lumia 2520. There’s even a couple of USB ports integrated, allowing you to charge your phone or connect external devices easily. That lets you keep writing, playing and consuming longer, another strength of the Windows platform and one that you should exploit.

Thanks for reading the article and have a good week!
