The Galaxy Tab S is the latest and greatest tablet from Samsung, with a svelte body and high resolution 10.5-inch display. It’s not all fun and games though – with the right accessories, this can be one of the most productive tablets on the market. I’m talking about a top quality keyboard case – and two such cases have been announced for the tablet thus far. Let’s take a look.
The first comes direct from Samsung, the Official Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Keyboard Case. As you’d expect from Samsung, it fits the tablet perfectly, adding a slim chiclet keyboard that pulls double duty as a screen-protecting case.
With the keyboard extended, you’ll have the same comfortable writing position as a laptop, with the screen at a convenient angle and the keyboard laid out below. The keyboard includes a full QWERTY arrangement, letting you type far more quickly and accurately than you ever could by tapping on glass. This includes special Android function keys along the top row, letting you quickly access common functions with a single key press. The case is also one of the most stylish I’ve seen for the Galaxy Tab S, with a glassy gold-coloured metal band around the case.
Our second contender is a third-party option from Logitech, the Type-S Keyboard and Case. This is a hardier option than the Samsung keyboard case, with a water-resistant coating and a more durable construction. Another advantage is that you can adjust the tablet and keyboard to a variety of angles, allowing you to adopt the traditional laptop posture, a more relaxed slant, or a near-flat angle that’s ideal for writing with a stylus. At each point, the SecureLock magnet system ensures that the tablet remains safely inside the case.
Like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 case, the Logitech option includes a full layout keyboard with scissor-switched keys, like those you’d find on a laptop. This gives you an easy way to quickly author documents, reply to emails and even write blogs like this one. With the Galaxy Tab S’s multi-window feature, you’ll be able to write notes on one side while looking at a web-page or another document or another. Combined with the keyboard, you’ll have laptop levels of productivity in a much smaller and longer lasting package.
Both keyboard cases for the Galaxy Tab S are coming soon to Mobile Fun. Please see more information and photos via the product pages linked below:

What’s the perfect portable Bluetooth speaker? According The Verge in their recent This Is My Next article, the title belongs to the Logitech Ultimate Ears Boom. The UE Boom was lauded for its great 360° sound, long battery life and its beautiful water-resistant body. The UE Boom is coming soon to Mobile Fun, so let’s take a closer look.
The UE Boom is a tall cylinder, with speakers embedded around its periphery for 360° sound. That means you can stick the Boom in the centre of a room, and you’ll find everyone gets a nice earful. The UE Boom has a few buttons along one-side, and a pleasant texture that looks good in a range of colours. Black, blue, red and white are all available. The Boom is definitely one of the larger Bluetooth speakers on the market, but it still fits easily enough in a bag or just in your hand. You can take it quite easily to the beach or the boardroom, and it’s water-resistant so it’ll survive the rain.
One of the most important attributes for any Bluetooth speaker is sound quality, and the UE Boom seems well equipped. The Verge report “more bass response and more resonant mids than I’d expect from a speaker this size”, with a clear and powerful sound. It gets loud too, so you can throw a dance party in your living room or the parking lot.
The UE Boom’s larger frame gives it a longer than average battery life, at about sixteen hours of continuous playback. The Boom charges via the same microUSB cable that your phone probably uses, and is able to be almost fully recharged in a few hours.
An award-winning Bluetooth speaker
In a competition of 13 popular Bluetooth speakers, the UE Boom won out with its impressive sound, good battery life and beautiful design. The Boom is coming soon to Mobile Fun, so check out the product pages linked below for more information.

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:

Samsung announced a line of tablets at CES 2014, and two of them have me really excited: the Note Pro and Tab Pro 12.2″. The tablets offer more screen space than the 10″ standard size, and are packed to the gills with productivity features like multi-window modes and a revised desktop UI. These changes make for a tablet that’s closer to a laptop. To further that transition, today we’re unveiling the Logitech Pro Keyboard Case.
As you’d expect, this case adds a wide and comfortable keyboard to the tablets, allowing to type as easily as you would on a laptop or desktop computer. Whether you’re emailing clients, writing memos or preparing a document, you’ll find you can write much more quickly and accurately than you can by tapping on glass. The display is also propped up at a convenient angle, allowing you to use the touch-screen easily.
But of course, there are times that you won’t want to be typing. Thankfully, the Logitech Pro’s slim design allows the keyboard portion to easily be tucked behind the tablet, making for a completely traditional tablet experience. When you’re done using your tablet, you can just fold the cover closed and the vulnerable screen will be protected while your tablet is in your bag.
The protection provided by the Logitech Pro belies this case’s slim size. You’ll get adequate bump protection, excellent scratch protection all-over, and even spill resistance thanks to the unique materials used in the case’s construction.
One possible concern with any Bluetooth accessory – like this keyboard – is battery life. Thanks to the advent of Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, you’ll find that this keyboard will last for ages on a single charge – up to 3 months of use! You can easily charge the keyboard using the included cable if you ever run low, and then you’ll be good for another few months.
The Logitech Pro Keyboard Case is the ideal complement to Samsung’s new Note Pro and Tab Pro 12.2″ tablets for any working professional. The Logitech Pro is available for pre-order now. For more photos and information, check out the product page linked below. You can also find more accessories via the latter two links:

Earlier this week we had a look at the first official iOS 7 gamepad for Lightning devices, the Moga Ace Power. Today, we’re looking at the second such device, this time from master peripheral manufacturers Logitech. It’s called the Logitech Powershell Game Controller, and it looks pretty cool!
So what do you get? Well, the idea here is the same as the Ace Power – you get a gamepad that will wrap around your iPhone 5S or 5, adding controls to the left and right of the landscape-orientation screen. Here we have a 8-way D-Pad on the left, and four face buttons on the right. We’ve also got a pair of bumpers, making this gamepad roughly equivalent to the Super Nintendo controller of old (there’s no Start/Select here, but the D-Pad can do diagonals so we’ll call it about even).
The advantage of getting these analogue console-style controls is that your hands come off the glass touch-screen, so you can see everything that’s going on. Of course, physical controls also are a lot easier to use, with tactile feedback that just isn’t possible on glass.
This isn’t just a controller, either. The Powershell also includes an integrated battery, with a capacity of 1500 mAh. That’s enough to more than double your battery life, so you can game for hours every day and still end up with more battery life out of your iPhone than you had before.
The Gameshell doesn’t make it any harder to access your phone for non-gaming stuff either – you still have easy access for all buttons and features, and taking your phone out of the case is easy too. There’s even a special headphone adapter, with an angled design that keeps the cable from getting in your way.
So there we have it – the Logitech Powershell. Thanks for checking out the article and be sure to look at the product page linked below for the latest pricing and availability information, plus more photographs and features!
