Kensington® iPhone 4 Accessories Take Power and Protection to Next Level

In the Car and On-the-Go

Updated: January 05, 2011

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart made simple™ computing and smartphone accessories, today introduced three new products to its collection of iPhone (News - Alert) 4 accessories for continuous power on-the-go. An impressive handsfree car device designed with wireless connectivity, voice command control, sound amplification, securing and charging abilities for iPhone 4 makes the ultimate driving companion to make handsfree interaction while driving smarter and easier than ever before. Two additional juice boosting accessories include: a battery charging case for iPhone 4 with a card stand and a three port charge and sync hub. Kensington's new additions have taken productivity, safety and multi-tasking with iPhone 4 to the next level.

With Kensington accessories, iPhone 4 users now have enough power to complete their day while enjoying new or favorite applications, participating in FaceTime (News - Alert) calls, creating HD video recordings, and more. The all-in-one Kensington AssistOne™ Handsfree Car Device with Voice Activation allows handsfree interaction with your iPhone so you can take full advantage of your phone -- even in the car. Built-in Bluetooth® connectivity allows wireless calling and media playback, while voice controls answer, decline, place a call, and even launch music -- all handsfree. Kensington's PowerGuard™ Battery Case with Card Stand powers and protects iPhone 4 simultaneously and even includes a handy card stand that props up the iPhone during FaceTime chats for maximum comfort. And the Kensington PocketHub™ 3-Port USB and Sync offers a reliable standalone charge and sync ability for any iPhone or iPod, plus three additional USB ports for additional devices.

"The beauty of the iPhone 4 is that it's so much more than just a mobile phone, so its accessories must hold up to the same rigorous, multi-purpose use," said Jim Murakami, Global Product Manager, Kensington. "Whether it is voice activation, more talk time or an extra USB port, we have designed all of our iPhone accessories to do more of what you want, when you want and where you want it. These accessories offer ultimate convenience, power, and protection and should become a 'must have' for today's iPhone 4 user."

As the iPhone has transcended industry standards of multifunctional technology, so must the accessories that support it. The constantly interactive device demands accessories providing extended power, productivity and protection. Whether you are a business executive, road warrior or gadget junkie, time is important, sometimes critical. Kensington products keep pace with the 'always on' experience that an iPhone offers by matching the device's attributes of being grab and go, easy to use and just the right feature set.
