Typo Keyboard, $169

Made famous by co-founder Ryan Seacrest, this keyboard and case for the Apple iPhone 5 and 5s is slim and lightweight, keeping your iPhone svelte.

Users who are converts from BlackBerry will enjoy the physical keyboard, which has tactile buttons and is fully backlit for night typing.

The keyboard uses Bluetooth to connect. It should last for about a week of active use and has a battery indicator to display battery life.


Linksys WRT1900AC Wi-Fi Router, $399, available next month

Linksys says this is the first consumer router to feature four adjustable external antennae, providing more range and coverage than conventional three-antenna devices.

The dual-band device uses the new 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, offering speeds of up to 1,300Mbps. Powering it is a dual-core, 1.2GHz processor and 128MB flash memory. It can also extend the range of an existing wireless network, or function as a wireless bridge between two wired networks.

It comes pre-configured with the Virtual LAN IDs of all major fibre Internet service providers here, making set-up quick and simple.


Nakamichi NBS2N NFC Bluetooth Speaker, $79

It looks like a small jar but it is actually a portable speaker which uses Bluetooth 3.0 for better transmission and Near Field Communication for hassle-free pairing with an audio device.

Playlists and audiobooks can also be played through a MicroSD slot (up to 64GB).

If you receive an incoming call, you can use the speaker's built-in microphone. A built-in FM tuner gives access to FM radio channels.

The speaker has a battery life of four hours and is available in six colours.
