Gadget Cases Save You Money
When it comes to shopping, most people prefer gadgets with the latest features. As a matter of fact, people are buying more smartphones and mobile computing devices more than ever in our history. The more powerful these gadgets get, the more valuable they have become. Depending on gadget preference, you are most likely carrying around a mobile phone, camera, diary, alarm clock, music player and a personal mini-computer squashed into one powerful device.
Unfortunately, loose change won’t get you anywhere near these gadgets. You are looking at spending at-least $150.00 on most modern mobile devices. Which is an investment. Most people will also worry about the safety of their gadgets when making a choice on which toy to buy, specifically “what happens if it drops?”.
According to the leaflets available in Vodafone stores, they paid out £100 million in insurance for customers who dropped their phones in the toilet. Another case which demonstrates a level of clumsiness in all of us. You may easily get away with cheap imitation cases on the local high-street. However, they come with no guarantee and the lifetime and quality are usually compromised.
And that’s where companies like Proporta come in handy
London Underground – 1996. A journalist called Guy Monson looses his Filofax on the tube. The Filofax is his life. It has all his regular and secret contacts, it also documents the projects that he has been involved in the past.
He vows never to be caught again and invests in a brand new PDA – Psion, which he promptly drops and breaks.
Being a geek he immediately thinks of how he can protect his mobile device. After some research, he finds that unfortunately most cases on the market are unsuitable, and offer no proper protection at all. So he does what most geeks do when they come across this kind of problem – “innovate and make their own”.
Bill Gates had Paul Allen back in 1975 when they started Microsoft. Guy Monsoon had Mike Coombes and a few pints of beer. The first crazy idea is when they both conclude that the world has enough clumsy people to guarantee them a market. The second crazy idea is when they decide that, “what the world needs is a hard case for the Psion”.
In April 1997 a company called PalmTec producing the first and only hard case for the Psion that was supposed to offer better protection than other cases in the market competition was registered. After a year of taking calls from American customers in the wee hours, a dazed, groggy parent ( Mike’s dad ) had seen enough and moved them to his Coventry based metal plating company in March of 1998. Finally in 2002 they re-branded as Proporta which means PROfessional and PORTAble.
