TARGUS Australia has entered the Apple marketplace with the introduction of an iPod accessory line, including new cases and a wireless remote designed to enhance the iPod and iPod mini. The accessory line, including slide, flip cases and RemoteTunes wireless remote, meet the increasing demand in the marketplace for unique iPod accessories with many features, high quality and durability.
Targus' iPod cases are stylish, combining both the durability of a hard shell and a classic design. RemoteTunes is suitable for any mobile user who wants easy and quick access to their iPod, whether it is in their backpack or in another room.
The stylish cases are designed to keep the iPod protected at all times, with the designs of the flip and slide cases providing a snug fit and easy access to both controls and connectors. Both cases are made of premium quality leather.
RemoteTunes wireless remote extends the iPod's versatility. Small and lightweight, it is based on RF (radio frequency) technology and allows users to control the volume and song selection from up to 50m away.
"By offering a wireless remote that features a range twice as far as similar products, we are meeting the needs of the iPod user," said Targus product manager, David Radel. "We will continue to focus on the evolving iPod accessory space and offer innovative solutions to meet the growing needs of our customers."
The slide case, available in two sizes (models - AEB02US and AEB03US), conveniently clips onto a belt or bag, allowing the MP3 player to be carried around during business or leisure.
The case has two pieces - the iPod slides into the top piece, which slips into the piece that contains a belt clip. The case allows the iPod to face in or face out for easy access to controls and connectors.
Made of premium quality leather with a soft, scratch-resistant lining, the case also features a sturdy belt clip and includes a screen protector. It has a classic, elegant, design and includes a limited lifetime warranty.
The flip case for the iPod mini (model AEB04US) is designed for easy access to the iPod’s controls. It can be worn on a belt, with the iPod completely protected and conveniently flips down in the front for easy access to the controls and top and bottom connectors.
Made of premium quality leather with a soft, scratch-resistant lining, it comes with a sturdy belt clip and iPod screen protector. It also includes a limited lifetime warranty.
The RemoteTunes wireless remote for iPod (model AER0101US) is a wireless remote that uses RF technology to allow iPod users freedom to control their music at home, in the office, or while on the go.
With an open-air range of 45.7m, the remote more than doubles the range of competing products. While some competitive remotes require line of sight of function, RemoteTunes can be used through walls.
Working with iPod and iPod minis, the remote functions include volume up/down, fast forward, fast reverse, advance/previous track, play and pause.
The small, water-resistant device can be attached to a belt or key chain for mobile use and comes with a tabletop stand and stereo cable for a complete home solution. It will go into ‘power save’ mode when it doesn't receive a signal for 20mins and once remote buttons are pressed it automatically powers back up.
It can be used with headphones and speakers and is lightweight, compact and durable. The package contains a remote, receiver, belt clip, stereo cable and tabletop stand. It has a full one year warranty.
