SAN FRANCISCO — It may come as a surprise, but AT&T’s is one of the biggest retailers of Apple accessories. The company has more than 2,200 stores across the country, compared to Apple’s 253 US stores. and they sell a boatload of goodies.
On Thursday night, AT&T showcased some of the hottest iPhone and iPad accessories that will be available this Holiday at it’s retail locations.
Check them out:
Plantronics featured the BackBeat GO 2, a pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds. We are huge fans of their predecessors, the BackBeat 903+, which sounded incredible for Bluetooth earbuds.
The BackBeat GO 2 also sound great. They are well made and sweat-proof. They come with an innovative portable charging case for juicing their batteries on the go. The BackBeats just won an Innovation award from CES 2014.
Yurbuds showcased the Inspire Talk for women, a pair of wired headphones developed specifically for women with smaller ear canals. The twist and lock feature works very well — they absloutely won’t fall out.
They Yurbuds work so well under extreme athletic conditions, this guy is flipping out for them.
Moshi debuted its new VersaKeyboard for iPad Air, a clever keyboard case for iPad Air. The VersaKeyboard mates Moshi’s popular folding Versacover case and stand with a wireless Bluetooth keyboard. The keyboard is well made, with good, smooth travel on the keys. When not in use, the keyboard slides into a slot on the back of the case. It will be available in January for $99.
HMDX had a variety of portable speakers on hand but I especially liked the Jam Party, a mini rechargeable boombox that gives you big sound and total portability. I loved its cute and retro look.
JBL/Harman was showcasing the JBL Pulse, a portable stereo speaker with LED lighting that stands out at a party with several different light combinations to choose from. Sounds good too.
Duracell is really excited about its Duracell Powermat, a wireless charging system that’s compatible with wireless charging spots going in at Starbucks, Macdonald’s and other businesses all round the country. Just plop your phone on a Powermat-compatible charging spot, and it’ll juice your device without wires. The AccessCase for iPhone 5 costs $50 and requires a PowerMat, which range form $40 to $70 depending on the number of devices.
