Herbert Richter Banana Global 9.1 Tablet Screen Mount

RH Numbers

If you're going to stick a £400 tablet to your windshield - and I’m not suggesting for a moment that this is a good idea - you want something that stays stuck and doesn’t flap about or droop like a prize stallion with severe erectile dysfunction. So my advice is buy German and go for a Herbert Richter mount. It may not be pretty but it’s built to an impressively high Teutonic standard and will hold anything you care to put into its vice-like grip. I’ve used mine to hold an iPad, a Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition and an Asus Transformer Prime for hours on end, and never once had to adjust or re-attach it. I’ve also started using it as a desk stand in the office and wall mount in the kitchen.

Jabra Freeway Bluetooth Speakerphone

RH Numbers
RH Recommended Medal

Simply the best Bluetooth speakerphone I’ve come across. The sound quality is superb and the voice control is faultless. I particularly like that when I say, “battery,” the Freeway tells me how much charge it has left. It will also connect to two Bluetooth devices at a time and can relay its output to your car’s FM radio should you so desire - simply tell it to scan for an open FM frequency and it will reply with the most clutter-free one it can find. Thanks to its three speakers and virtual surround sound system, audio quality is so good you can actually listen to music and still enjoy the experience - and you never have to struggle to hear what callers are saying. It’s a bit big but that’s a small price to pay. The battery life is excellent.
