Kingston, MoGo Talk


One of Kingston's biggest selling points at ShowStoppers was their SSDNow 30GB boot drive. This is a pretty typical 30GB SSD, but is unique because it ships with a Kingston branded copy of Acronis drive cloning software. The idea behind this SSD is to bring fast boot drives to the general user. The bundle (software + hardware) will retail for under $100 at the end of February, making for one dirt cheap SSD.

On the other end of the price spectrum, Kingston was also sure to mention their new super-sized Hyper-X kits. There is a 24GB (6x4GB) kit designed for the Core i7 platform, as well as a 16GB kit (4x4GB) designed for the Core i5 platform. The 24GB kit will currently cost you an exorbitant $1600, while the 16GB kit is closer to $1000.

MoGo Talk

MoGo Talk is a slick Bluetooth headset attachment for iPhones and BlackBerry phones. The headset included is just 5mm thick and attaches to a snap-on case customized for the phone. Also, there is a mini USB port on the case for charging the headset while it is docked on the phone.

Altogether, the product adds a small bit of thickness and weight to the phone, but with the extra heft you get a case and a headset. Right now, for $129.99, you can get the headset, the case, six different ear tips, a screen protector and a charging cable (sadly, no iPhone included). MoGo gave us a sample to take with us but unfortunately I haven't had time to give it a try yet. Be on the lookout for that in the coming weeks.
