Proporta

I just finished carving up the last pumpkin here at Gadgetorama headquarters. Soon, it will be time to head out for a little ‘Trick or treat’ fun with the boys. Proporta is also celebrating and is marking the day with a 15 percent discount.

It’s almost that time again, when the undead walk the streets, hand in hand with witches, ghouls and goblins, and no doorstep or pub is safe from the hordes in fancy dress… Yes, Halloween is just around the corner, and whilst you may be feeling a little too old for trick or treating, apple bobbing or dressing up as an unconvincing skeleton, there’s always a time in life for a little rebellious carnival spirit, and sticking two fingers up at the man.

That’s what Proporta thinks Halloween is all about, and whether that carnivalesque tendency expresses itself through Zombie walks or just getting very drunk, you’re going to need something to protect your devices. For that reason, Proporta would like to offer all customers 15% off this Halloween, so that you can get on with the celebrating and not worry about anything else. Even a vampire needs to know his mobile phone is safe, at least when it comes to getting a cab home…

To get your 15 percent discount, use the promocode PUMPKIN in the cart page during checkout. But hurry, the offer is only good for Halloween!

Proporta is looking for some customer feedback on the design of one of their cases. Two main designs of the Alu-Leather Case have dominated the product so far, the case with the Side Grip, and the design using a Pouch. We would like to ask you which case design you prefer so that we fully understand your needs as best we can. So far, people have commented on the fact that they enjoy being able to see the entirety of their device, as well as the keyboard accessibility provided by the case with side grips. They have also said that they enjoy the security of a pouch, and the fact that it adds less bulk to the device than the side grip. But what is your preference?

Head over to Proporta and give them your feedback. Prizes will be awarded to 5 lucky Proporta helpers.

Proporta Advanced Screen Protector

Screen protectors are extremely popular accessories for PDAs. Other devices with displays can also benefit from screen protectors, especially when the screens are exposed to the elements or a fair amount of wear and tear. There can also be other benefits such as UV glare reduction.

When the iPod nano first came out, there were a number of complaints about how easy the display could get scratched up. Fortunately, Proporta Music was among the first to offer a screen protector for the nano. The Advanced Screen Protector is made of a ultra high-clarity plastic that allowed Proporta to increase the thickness (and the protection) without affecting screen clarity.

Does your iPod nano need a screen protector? Does the Proporta Advanced Screen Protector live up to its promise? Read our review and decide for yourself.
