We took on the enviable task of reviewing the coolest clobber for your smartdevices

01: Bookbook for iPHONE 4/4S

Description: Bookbook for iPHONE 4/4S

In the battle of style versus practicality the BookBook case for iPhone takes about as many hits as it delivers. On the plus side you’re unlikely to find a cuter looking covering for your phone than this. It’s beautifully made and a joy to hold. U fortunately it’s not so practical for taking calls thanks to its bulk, or for taking photos because of its solid back. But since when was practicality cool?

02: Crossfade M-80 white pearl

Description: Crossfade M-80 white pearl

We’ve mentioned previously how much we love these headphones, although that time it was in their ‘Shadow’ phase. The new Crossfades from V-Moda now come in white to match your similarly finished iPhone or iPad, and strangely they seem almost more menacing than before. Design aside you’re not going to find many headphones with better sound quality for the price, and the build quality is top-notch.

03: Tuff-Luv slim-stand

Description: Tuff-luv slim-stand

This soft case not only provides good coverage for your iPad; the lining has four clear spaces that give you a range of landscape viewing angles to play with. The case also uses Smart Cover technology to wake your iPad up and put it to sleep, and has a microfibre lined interior to help protect your screen. There’s no unnecessary bulk, and it retains the quality finish we’re come to expect from Tuff-Luv.

04: Taylor smart stand sleeve

Description: Taylor smart stand sleeve

An iPad case that has managed to strike a near-perfect balance between stylish and practicality, the Smart Stand Sleeve not only provides a cool carrying case for your device, but also cleverly folds to create viewing angles for the iPad. The case is lined with magnets that not only closes the opening and protects your device, but also allow for folding and sturdy viewing angle creation.

05: Wacom bamboo stylus duo

Description:  Wacom bamboo stylus duo

Combing a stylus and a ballpoint pen to make it doubly useful to have around, the Bamboo Stylus duo has an authoritative weight to it, making it feel instantly comfortable in your hand. Unlike many styluses that come with an ink pen built-in, the pen lid has been designed to fit over the stylus end when not in use. The stylus itself is smooth and precise and works with s great client app – Bamboo Paper.

06: Interactive bluetooth R/C Enzo Ferrari

Description: Interactive bluetooth R/C enzo Ferrari

We’ve played with a fair few remote control vehicles and this excellent little Enzo is one of the best. The Bluetooth setup couldn’t be simpler (just switch on the car and look for the connection on your phone), open the control app and away you go. The tilt control setup is a little twitchy, but the touch controls are some of the most precise we’ve used for this kind of R/C toy. The sound effects and flashing lights are nice touches too.
