IMO Unveils Mobile Handset Line-Up for 2H 2017

handset-imo-s2-1IMO, the UK-based mobile manufacturer specialising in devices to keep users “Connected & Entertained Everywhere”, today announced its product line-up for the second half of 2017. Forthcoming devices include the IMO S2 and Q+ smartphones, successors to the popular IMO S and Q launched last year, and the IMO Dash – a new best-in-class 3G feature phone. As with previous IMO releases, the company’s emphasis is on providing the best value devices at prices accessible to everyone.

 

The IMO S2 promises to provide users with a full 4G smartphone experience at a fraction of the cost of those offered by other brands. At just 8.2mm thick and with a machined metal body, the S2 will feature a 5” HD display, finger print sensor and will launch on Android 7.0. The S2 will also feature a 13MP camera, with 16GB ROM and 2GB RAM. Sim-free pricing is expected to be around £130.

 

Building on the huge success of its predecessor, the IMO Q+ will be available in either a 3G or 4G variant. With a bigger 5” FWVGA display, 1.25GHz quad-core processor and 2200mAh battery, the IMO Q+ offers a lot of phone for budget conscious buyers.

 

Finally, the IMO Dash represents the company’s first foray into the feature phones market. The 12-button device will include 3G, a 2MP camera and a battery standby time of over 8 days. Sim free pricing is expected to be below £30.

 

“Our phones continue to deliver a combination of quality, strong feature set and affordability that raise the bar for entry level handsets,” said Nigel Whitehead, IMO’s Head of Sales and Propositions. “Following on from the success of our launch devices in 2016 with the MVNOs Virgin and Talk Mobile, and retailers including Argos, Dixons-Carphone and Amazon, we are very excited to be unveiling our range of products for 2017 that enhance our strategy of giving consumers the best value for their money.”

Protect is a flexible, hassle-free way to monitor your property and ensure your family feels safe and secure. Protect has been designed to deliver peace of mind 24/7 and help you look after what matters most.

Protect features include:

The complete solution – Over 94% of all burglar alarms are estimated to be false, i.e. not caused by a break-in. Y-cam Protect gives Front Line Protection against break-ins and together with Y-cam cameras allows visual verification of alarms remotely from your device

To bring graphics and images to life, the display features a CrystalClear 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) and wide viewing angles. Integrated speakers complement the visuals with superb sound.

Display with popup webcam: a great way to improve in-office security, the 27-inch 272B7QPTKEB Quad HD display makes life tough for camera hackers. It features a webcam that pops up when needed, and is otherwise hidden in the display frame – blocking off a potential spyhole for intrusion. To minimise power consumption (up to 80% savings are possible), the display has Philips PowerSensor technology, which senses whether anyone is present at the desk, and automatically reduces screen brightness if the user steps away.

One-cable connectivity: for professional-grade connectivity, MMD showcases the 25-inch 258B6QUEB display with the latest generation USB Type C docking functionality. The easy one-cable connectivity of this display enables users to use their monitor as a docking station for any USB Type C-enabled laptop. With one single cable, the monitor receives video and audio input, and simultaneously charges the connected laptop. All peripherals can be connected to the monitor and used by the laptop, courtesy of the same USB Type C cable connection.

GEAR4 puts military grade protection into the iPad case

GEAR4, the UK’s number one trusted impact protection case brand, today launches its new Buckingham iPad TPU flip case range, featuring D3O – the most advanced shock absorbing technology for enhanced impact protection. The Buckingham case, linked to GEAR4’s British roots, combines modern forms and materials to deliver the ultimate combination of sleek protection. The case is available for iPad mini 4, Air2/Pro 9.7 inch and Pro 12.9 inch.

The D3O® impact technology used in the Buckingham case is in fact so trusted worldwide that it is the same material found in the U.S military combat uniforms, American football helmets and protective gear worn by pro athletes (including Usain Bolt) and extreme sportsmen, such as Olympic ski teams. With these kinds of endorsements, iPad owners can rest assured that they have the most technologically advanced casing available on the market.

D3O® has a unique molecular structure; in standard conditions, the molecules flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible, but on impact lock together to absorb and dissipate the impact energy, which means your device stays safe when dropped. GEAR4 are the first to use an injection moulded grade of D3O® technology to deliver more impact protection per cubic millimetre than other leading materials.

GEAR4 designers combined this unique technology with a functional design featuring a standing option to work in landscape at a desk, table or on a lap and four slots for business or payment cards. There are also two larger slots for important documents and its unique clip closure ensures the device, as well as valuable items, are kept safe whilst not in use.

The Buckingham is available in black with orange, blue and grey trim from www.gear4.com and Carphone Warehouse
