The week in iOS accessories: Wrapping up CES

Our third and final roundup of CES-discovered accessories for your iOS gear

The Week in iOS Accessories

It's time for our third (and final) roundup of CES-discovered accessories for your iOS gear. This one includes new ways to charge your iOS devices, wirelessly play your music from them, or even adapt them into battle tanks.

Adonit

The $90 Jot Touch is a pressure stylus with Bluetooth connectivity to enable precision in the creation of art, calligraphy, or other fine-brush-work activity on your iPad. Pre-orders are available now, but there's no word on when the product itself will be available.

ClamCase

The new $169 ClamCase Pro bills itself as the world's thinnest Bluetooth-enabled keyboard case for your iPad. It works equally well as a laptop keyboard, a tablet stand, or simply as a case for protecting your tablet.

Digital Innovations

This company claims that when you connect your iPad to your computer's USB port via the ChargeDr USB Charge Booster, the iPad will charge four times as quickly as it would using a normal connection, and an iPhone twice as fast. There is no word, however, on pricing or availability.

Kensington

The $60 app-enabled Proximo Starter KIt lets you attach an electronic fob to your most-valued possessions, and then use your iPhone to track them if they go missing. If you buy the starter kit, you can later buy additional fobs to track up to five items at one time.

Peavey Electronics

This audio company has unveiled its WFS 3.70 Wireless Speakers, which will stream music wirelessly from any iOS device (or Mac) using Apple's AirPlay technology. Peavey hasn't yet offered word on pricing or availability.

Phu

You want these iPhone battle tank chargers, don't you? We get it. But sorry. The designs appear to be concepts worked out by Singaphore-based Phu--we've looked around the web for pricing and availability and found nothing. But we're keeping our fingers crossed.

USBFever

The $40 12X Telescope with Hard Case for iPad Mini offers everything in the name: a telescope that mounts to your iPad mini via a hard case. It magnifies far-off objects up to 12 times what you'd otherwise see. Also new from USBFever is the 3D Telescope for iPhone 4 and later.

XFlex

Here's a Kickstarter project that has met its goals and is going into production: The XFlex Tablet and iPad Stand has a weighted base and a gooseneck arm, letting you adjust your tablet in whichever height, angle, and orientation gives you the best view. The base is supposedly heavy and wide enough to use even on soft surfaces--such as on your bed for evening reading.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

Tom Sellers

MSI P65

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

Lolita Wang

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
