Reduce Cord Clutter with the Felix MonkeyOh October 07 2015

With any mobile device, you're probably going to have to deal with charging cables, unless you happen to use a wireless charger.  Whether you charge your device at home or carry around a charger in your bag, having multiple devices can quickly lead to the dreaded cord clutter, especially if you're using outlets are near each other.  We have a fun and multifunctional solution we think you'll enjoy.

The Felix MonkeyOh is designed to reduce the dreaded cord clutter and also functions as a stand.  Conceived in a fun shape that resembles an actual monkey sitting down, you can wrap your charging around the back of the MonkeyOh as its “backpack”, reducing excessive cord clutter and also reducing the odds of accidentally pulling the charging cord itself.  The MonkeyOh provides sturdiness so you can watch a video, chat with your friends through Skype, FaceTime, or Google Hangouts, and its rubberized non-skid bottom means it won't topple over.  The arms are flexible to accommodate and “hug” phones of different sizes or those with cases on them.  Best of all, MonkeyOh works with many different phones regardless of whether you use an iPhone or Android device.  The MonkeyOh is available in four different color combinations: white-red, white-white, black-red, and black-black.

The MonkeyOh is only one of many different accessories sold by Felix.  We also sell iPad stands and covers and accessories as well as universal cell phone stands.  Visit our website www.felixbrand.com for information on our other products or to order your MonkeyOh today.


All About the Camera Phone September 02 2015

Up until 2000, cameras were separate devices from a cell phone.  While there were digital cameras, the first one was sold in Japan in December 1989; the camera phone was not introduced until 2000, called the J-Phone model.  Interestingly this momentous event also happened in Japan.  A camera phone is a mobile phone that is also able to take photos and videos (although not all devices are able to record video).

In the beginning, most camera phones were more simplistic then digital cameras.  Previously, camera phones contained fixed-focus lenses and smaller sensors, which limited their ability to perform well in poor lighting.  Moreover, since the equipment did not contain physical shutters, some of them experienced shutter lag, and the flash, while available, usually underperformed.  However, since then, camera phones have significantly upgraded their features in even the most basic of gadgets.  Additionally, they lack most of the technological disadvantages their predecessor previously experienced and in addition to cost and convenience, having a camera phone allows individuals to possess the best of both worlds.  Users are able to conserve space as well as enjoy certain bonuses like geotagging, Bluetooth capabilities, and image stitching.  Also, a few of the higher end phones can use the touch screen to direct the camera to focus on a specific object.
