Otterbox debuts Agility tablet system

We all want to live the simple life. That used to mean a rural lifestyle with no technology or neighbors for miles. In today’s connected world, handheld technology simplifies life by acting as phone, camera, digital assistant and more. OtterBox® simplifies tablet use even more with the new Agility tablet system.

Agility is made up of five components that come together to simplify the use of tablets in everyday activities. Those components include:

Shell – The Shell is the central component of the Agility tablet system. It snaps onto a tablet and provides trusted OtterBox protection and a built-in magnet system that allows the device to attach to other system elements.

Folio – While the Agility Shell provides drop protection, a lineup of folio options guards against scratches and doubles as a convenient display for hands-free viewing and comfortable typing. There are three different folio options available, each providing varying levels of tablet coverage and additional features.

Wall Mount – There is no need to clear a space on your workbench or counter top for a tablet with the Agility Wall Mount. The Wall Mount attaches to smooth surfaces with two included 3M Command Strips to provide easy tablet accessibility almost anywhere.

Dock – The Dock establishes a home base for tablets. Set it up on a desk, nightstand or kitchen counter. The dock conveniently holds tablets at the best angle for the task at hand.

Power Dock – The Power Dock is not only a home for tablets, it is a technology destination for multiple devices. The stand and charging station provide a charging hub for a tablet, plus two other devices, and a space to neatly tuck cords away.

Change the way you look at your tablet with the OtterBox Agility tablet system.

LIMA Unifies All Your Content Across All Your Devices

132380-0910dd83-8d47-4a2d-a54b-54d47012bec6-different_2520devices-large-1401889609As people continue to use more and more devices, the need for accessing their content grows exponentially, however, different operating systems and devices see that content differently.

Introducing Lima, a “Smart Adapter” that consolidates and unifies all of your content from all of your devices.  Imagine a fascinating little device that is a bit like a smart operating system that sits on top of all others, and makes all operating systems, memory and files look and feel like the same one regardless of the device you’re using.

Lima also expands the size of your devices, allowing all of your devices to be as big as your Lima System at home regardless how much local memory you have on a device. What that means in the real world is that you can access all of your files available wherever you are, regardless of what device you’re on. That also means you don’t need to deal with file transfers anymore since everything is backed up instantly on your Lima system at home.

132382-1572763a-497a-498c-843c-a78b3640a58a-device_2520in_2520context-large-1401889900Unlike other solutions like iCloud Drive, Dropbox, and others, Lima doesn’t create yet another silo for your content: it actually reinvents how your devices store data, changing the paradigm of file storage by solving the problem at its root. Lima actually records the files you create or download wherever you produce them the first time, creating one storage footprint for your files. You can also use Lima offline for more flexibility when you’re using your mobile device and on the road.

Lima is a godsend for anyone who has files across more than one device and wants a safe, easy, seamless and secure way to access and share their data. For more information, visit http://www.meetlima.com, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/meetlima.

Introducing the New Tablo 4-Tuner DVR = More free HDTV to love!

TabloProductAndTablet_FrontLeft_400PXWhat (or who) is Tablo?

Tablo is an Over-the-Air (OTA) DVR for Cord-Cutters using antennas to access free broadcast HDTV content. Tablo lets you browse, record, and stream live and recorded HDTV programs on any device (iOS, or Android, Chromecast and Roku), anytime, anywhere in the world — without the expense or commitment of cable or satellite contracts.

Tablo 4-Tuner OTA DVR is here!

The brand new 4-Tuner Tablo OTA DVR launches at CE Week. It features two additional tuners for maximum live TV and recording flexibility.

The more tuners you have, the more free HDTV programs you can enjoy simultaneously:

• Watch up to 4 live TV streams at once
• Record up to 4 different programs at once
• Stream up to 4 programs at once using Tablo Connect (out-of-home streaming)

Because Tablo connects to your home network instead of your TV, it becomes a Whole-Home DVR that lets you watch your favorite shows on as many connected devices as you can cram onto your local network, limited only by your WiFi bandwidth!

Unlike other OTA DVRs out there, all Tablo units include dual-band WiFi enabling Tablo and the antenna to be placed in an optimal location for signal reception. Also, by storing guide data and recordings locally, Tablo’s gorgeous tablet apps are more responsive and fun to navigate than on-screen TV grid guides or remote-controlled interfaces.

Tablo 4-Tuner DVR Availability

The 4-Tuner Tablo will be available for purchase this month through TabloTV.com and trusted online retailers with an MSRP of $299.99 USD or $329.99 CAD.

For more information about Tablo and to download high-resolution images, visit the Tablo pressroom at: http://www.tablotv.com/press#press-kit
