ZAGG’s biggest selling product is the Invisible Shield with well over 60 million units sold and distribution in 200+ countries. “it’s made from a porous material that was developed to protect the rotor blades of Apache helicopters operating in the desert,” Lancaster said. “It’s a self-healing nano memory technology which means that if you scratch it, it heals itself. Plus it’s porous, so when you put it on the screen the bubbles disappear.” ZAGG’s latest hit product is the Folio iPad case and keyboard. “It was launched last month and the reviews have been amazing,” Lancaster said. “And the iFrogz range of products is also going very well. The reason behind the acquisition was that we make products for professionals, whereas “it’s clear that having a bigger stand has worked” iFrogz’ broad range is aimed firmly at the youth market. The Toxix headphones come in a wide range of colours and retail at a mere €20, and despite the very reasonable price, offer excellent sound quality. On top of that, the company makes a really comprehensive range of different kinds of cases and ear-buds in vibrant colours.” Hall 15.1 Stand 134 Paul Lancaster and Nadia Touhami of ZAGG IFA International Special Features Tomorrow's issue 6 will take a look at the dynamic and highly competitive digital camera market, the latest video recorders and what is new in digital photo frames. Consumer comfort and the latest products in the health and well-being segment are also featured, alongside My Beautiful Laundry looking at the latest washing machines. Finally, mounting solutions move out of the shadows to centre stage in our exhaustive look at new TV accessories and every kind of wallmounting solution.
