Feast your eyes on this week’s shiny selection of gadgets, including a phone that will make you feel very important…
1. Sony Xperia Tablet S
A ‘family friendly’ tablet, this has a splashproof screen designed to be used by every member of your household – so no more jealously protecting your tablet from your sticky-fingered children. Although they might mess up your innings on Stick Cricket, so it’s probably best to keep them off it anyway, just to be safe.
From £329 | sony.co.uk
2. Swissvoice Bluetooth BH01I
It’s quite hard, we’ve found, to really slam an iPhone down in disgust. We tried, but it led to an expensive trip to the Apple Store, and the forceful point we were trying to make was rather lost. If only we’d had this Bluetooth dock and handset, replete with speaker phone, we could have ended that call with the vitriol unwanted sales pitches deserve.

3. Ion Air Pro WiFi
Let’s face it – extreme sport, or even going outside for that matter, is pointless if you can’t tweet about it afterwards. This waterproof action cam is Wi-Fi enabled – the accompanying iPhone app acts a viewfinder, and can control recording while you’re mountain biking down Niagara Falls, or whatever. Think of all the RTs you’ll get.

4. Phiaton PS 20 BT
Thanks to OmniPair technology (not, sadly, a futuristic dating algorithm) these sleek half in-ear headphones, which provide the perfect balance between the bass response of in-ears and the clarity of open-ears, can store the Bluetooth spec of up to eight devices. So it’s easy to switch between phone and tablet listening without fiddly pairing.
