One of the slightly amusing things to me about the invention of the "smartphone" is the rapid obsolescence of accessories built for phones. A phone will come out, a whole slew of accessories are produced . . . and then a new model of phone is released that is a different size, requires a different adapter, different battery, etc. The "smart" part of the smartphone is that companies can keep making money off of new accessories.
I have never been an iPhone devotee, however if you have an iPhone 5 or 5S and want to review product, here is your chance. The makers of the Allo write:
The Allo is the world’s first all-in-one bike mount and speaker that gives riders a safe and convenient way to access all the features of their smartphones while biking. It’s a smarter and safer alternative to using ear buds or holding the phone with in your hand. Whether you want to listen to music, talk on the phone, use navigation features or any apps, the Allo puts everything at your fingertips by fully integrating your bike with your phone.
The makers of the Allo have agreed to ship one to a bikehacks.com reader to review. They will ship to any country in the world so the contest is open to all. Those interested can indicate interest by filling in this form. We will take entries until midnight EST on Friday, April 17. A winner will be randomly selected and will take receipt of the Allo and write up a review to be posted on bikehacks.com.
