Just Mobile launches dual-function stylus, optical-mouse mousepad
Just Mobile, a mobile accessories brand, has announced the global launch of its latest products, the AluPen Twist and Hoverpad. The Just Mobile AluPen Twist is a dual-function stylus for smartphone and tablet usage. One end can be twisted to reveal a rubber nib for controlled screen use, while the other can be twisted to reveal a high-quality ballpoint pen. AluPen Twist's overall body is made of aluminum and ABS construction. The HoverPad is a mouse mat coated to provide a precise surface intended for optical mouse use. Its textured finish and non-slip backing do not prevent it from being readily washable. The AluPen Twist and HoverPad are priced at $40 and $30 respectively, and can be purchased online by the end of November.
