For one, there is an eye-tracking sensor in the phone that follows eyes movement and can pause automatic scrolling of a webpage if the eye looks away. The ‘moving beyond touch' feature will certainly help the Korean company who is making the handset available to 327 mobile operators in 125 countries. Samsung is set to increase their market share from what is currently 16% to Apple's 25%. With an increase in phones, users need more choice of accessories for the device.

Samsung Gets Unpacked for Galaxy S4
Technology fans of the world unite, as the Samsung Galaxy S4 is released in New York. If you have passed Times Square recently you'll have noticed that Samsung has been teasing their S4 with black and white posters. Does this mean the handset will be black and white?
More rumors, whispers, and leaked photographs are being circulated. It is almost certain that the new device will have a 5-inch HD screen with an awesome resolution of 1920x1080.
No one in the industry has advanced information on the launch of the S4, unless you believe the leaks and supposed sneak preview photographs. So how does a case maker like SKECH get cases ready for a new device without knowing the specifications in advance?
Product Manager, Gadi Zuckerman told us:
"It's kind of like a magic trick, sifting through the leaks and the gossip mill, and coming up with our own imaged idea of the next device. Obviously we plan our new products as close to this imaging as we can. Then comes the launch and inevitably, the scramble. There is literal chaos in the SKECH offices, where we amend and adjust our product specifications to match the new device." He went on to say:
"It's like adrenaline city in our offices on launch day; I personally love the launch day buzz".
SKECH will be launching new products for the S4 including; Groove, Custom Jacket and Slim. Then they will also launch their bestselling collections from the iPhone range for the S4, both Hard Rubber and Shine.

Changing The Face of Protection - KAMEO for the iPhone 5
Sometimes a concept case comes along that just works. The buzz created around the KAMEO was overwhelming. The KAMEO which was previously launched for the iPhone 4 is now available for the iPhone 5. It is one of the most protective cases offered by SKECH, the leading innovators of accessories for the iPhone and iPad.
But that's not all; the real concept behind the KAMEO is the changing face. Imagine buying a case and being able to change the look of it - Almost like getting two cases for the price of one. That's the KAMEO; it has a removable back panel which clicks out. SKECH have created a whole line of interchangeable panels for users to be able to build up a collection and customize their case on a whim. They have even incorporated an extra black back panel into the package to get users started.
When users buy a case, they consider visual appearance as much as they do the protective power of the case. The KAMEO is built with a combination of 3 different materials, offering the ultimate in protection. The case incorporates shock absorbency on the sides with a reinforced frame, a raised rim to protect the front screen, and a heavy duty back panel.
KAMEO gives full access to the charging dock, camera, headphone jack, and all controls. The functionality of this case is a key aspect of SKECH's design.
The KAMEO is changing the face of protection.
The Italian Stallion of iPhone 5 cases - Lisso and Lisso Book
The Challenge: To create an elegant, upscale leather case that would appeal to a range of users at an affordable price.
The Result: The Lisso and Lisso Book. There's something special about these designer cases. It could be the feel of the finest quality leather that has gone into their making or even the overall design, which wraps around the iPhone 5 like a second skin. It also could be the slimness of the cases, which enhances the low-profile, streamlined look of the iPhone 5.
The Lisso by SKECH is a case that complements the iPhone 5. It's a sleeve case, so the iPhone 5 slips in smoothly, while the case hugs the sides of the device preventing it from falling out. The Lisso gives full access to the face of the iPhone 5 as well as all ports and controls. The Lisso combines the elegance of Italian leather with its natural protective quality. This case has a slim profile and doesn't add any bulk to the iPhone 5. The Lisso contains a slot for credit cards or business cards.
The Lisso Book is built on the same premise as the Lisso, except with a book style closure to protect the screen of the iPhone 5. It gives the appearance of a mini leather bound book. It's an expertly protective case, adding very little weight to the iPhone 5.
Two designer cases for the iPhone 5 at a realistic price.
Good Workmen Can Now Blame Their Tools with the SkechBook
There's a saying about bad workmen blaming their tools, but there is no such saying about good tools enhancing the user experience. There should be. Think about it for a moment, if you were an artist or an architect, you would require a basic minimum of tools to conduct your work.
Even as an athlete you would require decent sneakers to run in. You may be using your iPad in hundreds of different ways. Research has shown that some people use the mini mainly for internet and email, while others user the iPad to write, read, and create images. The SkechBook for iPad mini is not just a protective case; it's a creative experience for the iPad mini.
The SkechBook was based on an artist's journal, in terms of its look and feel. It fully wraps around the iPad mini, yet leaves open access to all ports and controls. It has a textured feel to it and opens and closes just like an artist journal. The device rests inside a rigid frame which holds it firmly in place and safeguards the mini. The iPad mini can be removed in one smooth action from the inside frame.
The cover of the SkechBook folds back into a stable, multi-position stand giving the user perfect viewing and browsing angles. The SkechBook now has been released in a whole range of vibrant new colors including Deep Purple, Sky Blue, and Awesome Pink. The case is minimalistic in terms of look, and it's one of the lightest and slimmest cases available for the iPad mini.
The SkechBook can trigger creativity. Give it a try. Do something different today on your iPad mini.
iPad mini Released and the SKECH Process Gets Underway
If you have just gone and bought yourself the New iPad, you may be kicking yourself just about now. Apple have done it again and delighted the fans with the latest device added to their ever-increasing portfolio - the iPad mini.
The major feature of the iPad mini, that consumers will notice, is the new size and weight. The iPad has shrunk to just 7.2mm thick with a weight of just 308g. What's more is that the screen of the mini has a 7.9-inch, 1,024 x 768 - this is the same exact resolution as the iPad 2. Now although it doesn't feature a retina display as in the new iPad, the good news is that because of the size of the screen, the quality of the picture on the mini will look even better than the iPad2.
The ultimate beauty of the iPad mini is that it's much easier to handle. It can be used and held with one hand, taking photos and videos with the iPad no longer needs to be an embarrassing and clunky act. The mini feels strong and durable to be carried throughout your day without feeling fragile.
As always after the launch of a new Apple product the accessory makers scramble to be the first to market, to offer protective and functional cases for the device, the iPad mini is no different. Teams of designers, engineers and manufacturers race to release their offering. One such market leader is SKECH who have launched the SkechBook for the iPad mini. SKECH worked on this case for nearly half a year to ensure that they were live with an excellent product in time for the iPad being available to consumers. The process is an interesting one and covers three continents across concept, design, prototype, quality assurance, product release and marketing. An incredible amount of manpower goes into the making of the SkechBook.
The case proves to be highly effective at protecting the device inside, while visually the case is stylish and looks exactly like an artist's journal - both the feel and the look. This case has a rigid internal frame which holds the mini tightly yet simply slides out at the whim of the consumer. The case complements the weight and slimness of the mini and the book closure style adds to the functionality and usability of the iPad mini. I was lucky enough to be able to watch part of the process from concept to prototype to release and was even given a SkechBook case at the end of it. Now it just remains for me to get the iPad mini.

Samsung Galaxy SIII- We Review the Device
We were very privileged to be able to preview the Galaxy SIII which was due for launch on the 29th May, with already millions of devices on pre-order.
As long-term fans of the iPhone 4S we were curious as to how the new Galaxy would compare. Our findings were extremely favorable. Samsung have touted their new device as, 'inspired by nature - it sees, listens, responds, and allows you to share the greatest moments'. Perhaps a tall order, and with a claim like this you'll no longer need friends, but let's get back to basics.
A phone should:
The Samsung Galaxy SIII comes in two brushed polycarbonate finishes, Brushed White and Pebble Blue, this is where the nature element comes in. We personally preferred the look of the Pebble Blue and in fact the shape of the new Galaxy has rounded corners giving it a softer pebble-like feel. The battery panel is removable and also comes adorned in the brushed polycarbonate for a great-looking exterior.
The dimensions of the phone are 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm, and yet manage to allocate a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen. The phone is lightweight, weighing in at only 133grams and the frame of the screen has been made narrower to give even more space to the screen. Buttons such as the oval shaped home screen, menu screen and volume are great additions to the Samsung Galaxy and there's a microSD slot, meaning the option to expand the memory by a further 64 GB. Combined with the internal memory of 64 GB this gives you a dazzling memory of 128GB right in the palm of your hand.
The texture and contours of the phone feel great and are comfortable both in your pocket and in your hand.
Well there's a lot we could say about the intuitive functionality of the Android but we'll leave that for another time. We will though focus on the improved front and rear cameras which are respectively 2 pixel and 8 pixels for excellent shots, plus the screen will be brighter and more high-res. to give more accurate and lifelike images while still using less battery power than before.
So for us, the New Samsung Galaxy SIII is a definite boom and we have developed new cases to protect the SIII including the New Groove case, the GripShock, the flexible shock absorbent case that gives a good grip, the Hard Rubber, one of our most popular sellers and the Custom Jacket Flip, for an elegant touch with all-round protection. Those will be coming soon, in the meantime we'll let Samsung do their thing, while we do ours.
We'd be glad to hear your feedback on the Samsung Galaxy SIII, either through:

SKECH are pleased to announce the release of new products for the New iPad
The California based designer of premium products for the iPad and iPhone have gone-to-market with a variety of their bestselling cases, specially adapted for the new iPad, as well as a launch of completely new products.
According to the Product Manager of SKECH, Gadi Zuckerman, "once a SKECH customer always a SKECH customer". He says,
"A lot of our business is returning customers. Our emphasis is on lifetime customer value; this is manifested by making our customers fall in love with the SKECH brand as well as the high quality and varied products we offer."
Statistics show that fans of Apple products often update to the latest device model, people can stand in line at the launch of a new product for hours, and that's also true of the iPad fans. These fans expect the same quality and dedication offered by the manufacturers of the protective cases, as these have the ability to prolong the life of the device.
SKECH have launched the following products for the new iPad: The Blueboard - the case with a detachable wireless keyboard, the bestselling Porter and the Flipper - the case with a back shell and smart front flip in one, as well as the Custom Jacket for the more professional user. These are fully compatible with the new iPad, including features such as the smart on/off function which turns the device on automatically by opening the flip and turns it off by closing it.
The Marketing Director, Kfir Ben Shushan conducted a lot of research on the adaptability of new iPad cases to the smart features within the device. He said,
"I tested a lot of new cases on the market and found that a great percentage were not offering features such as the automatic wake/sleep function. It seems Apple changed the polarity of the magnets in the device which affected this function. For us it was an absolute necessity to offer this, it's something our users have come to expect".
SKECH also launched a brand new product called the Fabric Flipper, currently only available to the iPad 3 users. It a smart front flip attached to a protective backshell in one, coated with a soft, easy clean fabric - a product that puts emphasis on a partnership between design and protection.
SKECH assure us, there are even more unique products coming soon.
Why Everyone’s Talking about SKECH in 2012
This year SKECH debuted some of their newest products, including the TRAX which is made from recycled tire tubing, KAMEO, the heavy duty case with a removable back and Glow for iPhone 4.
In addition SKECH altered the camera lens cutout on all their two-piece cases to work with the new iPhone 4S camera released by Apple.
That's not to mention the eye-catching exhibition booth, which was made to look like a graphic equalizer. The equalizer bars were created by cases with lights flashing behind them; a touch of drama to an already eventful show.
SKECH who design and create their own iPhone, Smartphone and Tablet cases are also re-launching their website over the coming weeks. The site has undergone some dramatic changes. It has been designed to be more innovative, user friendly and eventually offer an online e-commerce solution for all SKECH products.
The Unveiling of the iPad 3
Apple takes a step and the rest of the world runs to catch up. Rumors are abounding as to the possible appearance and new features of the next generation of iPad. Talk is cheap and often the new release is beyond expectations. This time, talk is of a better screen resolution for gaming and photos, better cameras, faster processing time...perhaps the device size will change too, although with Apple keeping this information close to their chests until the very last moment how can one be prepared?
What is true though, is that as a manufacturer and designer of iPad protective cases, SKECH is always ready whatever the outcome. Speed of time-to-market time after a new apple release is of utmost importance. This explains why SKECH have become experts at quick product turnaround while maintaining the integrity and innovation of the product.
You can be sure that however the iPad looks and functions SKECH will deliver the best cases for it, in the entire marketplace with the quickest turnaround
SKECH Reinvents the Wheel with the TRAX for iPhone 4s
TRAX which is already creating a buzz in the industry is not available on the shelves until the end of the month. According to the Marketing Director of SKECH, Kfir Ben Shushan the delay was intentional.
"When our design team showed us their new prototype we all immediately knew we had something big on our hands. We wanted to show the product at CES, the industry event in Las Vegas although it was not yet ready to market. Frankly, we couldn't wait to debut it. We did the right thing and we're delighted with the positive reaction we have had from clients and reviewers alike. Clients have already started preordering TRAX. "
The process that goes into the making of the flip-top TRAX involves a number of steps to prepare what was once a simple tire tube to be reincarnated into a phone case. The beauty of using such a material, as well as all the environmental benefits is that no two cases are alike. Each one looks different from the other, which means the holder has the benefit of a completely unique product.
TRAX also contains an inner lining of felt to protect the screen and credit card slots which can replace the need for a wallet. The case is very protective to the device and the material which is rugged gives the device an urban feel and a longer life.
