Day 2 of the CTIA 2012 convention is wrapped up and overall we are amazed at all the GREAT new products and devices about to hit the market!! While we at Zellatek have several HUGE announcements coming in the next several weeks I personally wanted to share my TOP 5 coolest product lines just hitting or about to hit the accessories market:
Their product line is one of the coolest new lines I have seen in a long time. Instead of trying to reach everything wireless they are currently focusing on chargers and are making a BIG splash doing it!! Their Universal Smartphone Retractable Charger may be one of the coolest chargers on the market, and their colors are great too!! Be looking for them in our store very soon!!
iCat is product line awesome!! While just hitting the consumer market because they have been supplying to the highest levels of governent with their products, iCat is going to revolutionize how we carry our smart devices. Their lanyards are sleek and durable and appeal to hikers, bikers, runners, surfers, and pretty much anyone who wants to make sure their phone is secure. Whether that is aroun your neck, wrist, or clipped to your belt, iCat has got you covered!!
This company is going to give Life Proof a run for their money. While their driSuit Endurance case is a little bulkier then the Life Proof case, it can desend to depths twice that of the Life Proof case!! If your looking for a case that you can count on around water, driSuit is the company that you trust to protect your phone wit hjust such a case.
2. Body Dock
By far the coolest case (their first product in a new company) I have seen the whole show, Body Dock is what every person who wants to protect their phone, but have access to all ports without having to take it off, is going to want!! Made by REAL enginners who took the time to get the right plastics, metals, and magnets (yes I said magnets) for a phone that has the protection of an Otterbox and Ballistic but the accessability of a phone with no case on it!! It's a GREAT new case that is going to make waves in the accessories industry.
The COOLEST thing I saw the whole show was HzO's demonstration!! While they are not going to be reaching out to the consumer market, you WILL be experiencing their product line. HzO is a company that coats the inside of your smart device so it can survive a drop in the water..........for 5 hours!!! You read that right!!! I witnessed, and we will be posting the video soon, HzO put an iPhone 4 in water for several seconds and pull it up with NO damage. The phone worked just like it did before it was in the water. The CRAZY thing was that I watched the water drain from the back of the phone (back of the phone was clear)!!! IT WAS INSANE!!! Like I said HzO will not be reaching out to consumers but instead is reaching out to actual phone makers as to get them to add their technology to new phones so water damage is a thing of the past!!! It's a great idea and one that will change the industry!!
That's all I have for now!! Be looking for more posts, videos, and reviews as well as a HUGE announcement in the coming days concerning our future!!! Until then!!

I have just returned for Day 1 of the CTIA 2012 Convention in New Orleans and all I can say is...........WOW!!! While there we were able to meet TON of new companies and get our hands on TONS of new products. To say that the accessories market is about to really take off is an understatement. While there have been cell/wireless accessoreis for years, the smart technology accessories market is relativly new. With the introducting of the iPod, iPhone, iPad the smart technology industry has exploded and there are not hundreds of companies looking to meet the needs of consumers who want to protect and accessorize their devices!!
The Zellatek team and I were able to meet with several companies while at the show and talk to them about getting their products listed here on Zellatek. All were gracious and kind and we are working with them to expand our inventory so that Zellatek can be you one stop shop for the BEST in cell/wireless/smart technology accessories. We will be announcing new partnerships in the coming days but I wanted to share some thoughts I had coming out of Day 1 of CTIA 2012:
1. There are TONS of new companies that are going to make a HUGE splash in the accessroies market in the coming year!!
2. Old dogs like Otterbox are going to have to up their game if they plan on competeing in this new hot market.
3. The cell/wireless/smart technology market is on FIRE right now and there are hundreds of great products to choose from.
4. It is a great time to be a consuer right now in the cell/wireless/smart technology market as companies are working overtime to get their products noticed and to you!!
5. I fully expect to see the rise of new accessory companies that want to really be an assest to customers, while seeing the fall of accessory companies who are just looking to turn a buck!!
6. New products are coming to the market that are going to revolutionize the cell/wireless/smart technology market in BIG ways!!
We will be working with several of the companies we met today to bring their products to the market in the coming days, as well as announcing a new partnership that will make Zellatek one of, if not the, biggest online retail site there is. We are excited about the days ahead for us and will keep you updated as things develop. Be looking for my thoughts on Day 2 at CTIA 2012 as I list my top new products that are coming to the market in the coming months. Until then.
