Accessories for my gadgets

I've always been a mobile phone freak. I would buy and sell, then buy again whenever there's a new handset out in the market. Some would last 2 weeks, some 3 months, but 3 years ago, I managed to tame myself for a bit and stick to one new phone for at least a year. To date, I have a Samsung S3 in pebble blue, which is smart locked, and my new shiny iPhone 5 which is globe locked. I love them both, although my original plan was to resell the iPhone 5 in a couple of months then buy the Samsung Note II LTE version when it arrives in the Philippines. Right now, I'm loving my Iphone 5, it's a breath of fresh air after years of having BIG SCREEN phones. Every year, mobile phones seem to get bigger and heavier, that is the current trend, as when a few years ago, the trend was the smaller the better.

Anyway, as a Christmas present to myself this 2012, I went ahead and got myself an iPhone 5 (had my eyes on Samsung Note II, but the latter does not support LTE yet while the Iphone 5 does). It wouldn't be complete without a protective case, a car charger, a car mount & a bluetooth handsfree headset, at least in my opinion.

Check out what's in my cart:

1.) iOttie One-Touch Windshield Dashboard Car Mount Holder for iPhone 5 4S 4 3GS Samsung Galaxy S3 S2 Epic Touch 4G HTC OneX EVO 4G Rhyme DROID RAZR BIONIC INCREDIBLE 2 CHARGE Google Nexus BlackBerry Torch LG Revolution GPS Compact Size 360 degree Rotatable

Personal favorite-This gadget will be able to hold either my Iphone 5 or my samsung S3. I need a car mount for my mobile phones as I am quite dependent on my phone's GPS, and it's quite annoying (and not safe) to have the phone sitting by my side and having to hold and look at it while driving.
