Who are Just Mobile?

From their website:

Just Mobile started life in 2005 with a simple mission: to create the most stylish mobile accessories in the world.

2007 the iPhone arrived and we fell head-over-heels in love. We put all our old projects aside, and began work on creating the most beautiful possible stand to show off Apple’s little wonder. The result was the Xtand™ – it won a bunch of awards and, more importantly, took pride of place on the desks of thousands of iPhone fans. We’ve never looked back.

These days, we produce a wide range of premium accessories – from innovative stands for laptops to stylish backup batteries for iPods. Stuff people love. Even our mousemat has won a reddot design award.

Everything that we make is guided by our vision to unify form and function – and then sprinkle a little joy on top. Because that’s the best way we can think of to create iconic accessories suitable for iconic products.

What’s in the Box?

The box contains the AluPen, a case for the pen, some stickers and a booklet.

Using the Case

The case was a good idea – the AluPen just slides into the case and is very well protected.

Final Thoughts

The AluPen comes in six different colours – silver, blue, green, yellow, black and red, so there is no shortage of colours to choose from!

I really liked the AluPen, it was really easy to use and was a lot better than continually using my finger, The inclusion of a carry case was a really good idea and proved very useful when transporting the AluPen so as to keep the tip clean.

If you have an iPad or iPhone, or any other sort of tablet or slate, then you should really consider getting an AluPen – you won’t regret it.

Price wise, the AluPen retails for around £19.99 but you can find it for around £15 online.
