Military Looking to further Secure On-Field Smartphones

Monday, June 25th, 2012

What do you use your smartphone for?  Checking your e-mail, ordering movie tickets, updating your Facebook?  Well, the brave men and women in our armed forces use their smartphones just as much, but for different reasons.  They are loaded with contacts, location information and all kinds of military-grade applications, so it can be disastrous for a soldier to lose a mobile device or have its data leak out unwittingly.  What if one was lost or stolen?

Charge It All with Idapt

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Idapt has a cool line of products, available at Abt. If you are anything like me, you have multiple handheld devices in your home that all need charging, and you have a limited number of free outlets to plug everything into.

Idapt chargers are a great solution for anyone who has multiple devices to charge. The Idapt accessories charger will give you the freedom to charge up to three handheld devices or accessories at the same time. It can charge mobile phones, smartphones, headsets or Bluetooth headphones, GPS units, cameras, game consoles, and batteries. It has interchangeable tips so you can configure the charger for the devices that you want to charge.

Rob, an Apple sales specialist at Abt, thinks this is a great charging station for a nightstand. Your phone is close by and both you and a significant other can charge phones at the same time.

Look for Idapt in the Apple store at Abt.

Do You Skype?

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Do you have Verizon Wireless? Do you Skype? Well, if Verizon is you wireless provider, you may be able to take advantage of free mobile to mobile Skype-ing. Sometime in March, Verizon is launching unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls on nine of their smartphones with accompanying 3G plans. One drawback, you can’t “Skype call” regular lines to save money.

Will you switch to Verizon to Skype at a reduced rate?

Abt sells Verizon wireless phones and smartphones. For more information on Skype or Verizon wireless, call or stop in today.

CES 2010 Is Now Over

Monday, January 11th, 2010

The 2010 Consumer Electronics Show is over; all the booths are down and the attendees are returning to their respective companies, heads dizzy from all of the new technology they’ve just seen.

The hottest categories this year were definitely Green Tech, 3D, and Smartphones. The tablet computer has been the talk of Vegas all weekend. CES saw different manufacturer’s versions of the tablet, but Apple’s long awaited announcement, January 27, has overshadowed the models we’ve seen. Apple will not confirm that the announcement is going to be the release of the Apple tablet, but it is intensely speculated.

Stay up to date about all the latest technology right here on the Abt Blog. For more information on the products seen at CES, talk with an Abt sales specialist.
