Kensington® Accessories for Smartphones and Netbooks Make Happiest Holiday Gifts

Affordable Mobile Devices Make Holiday Giving Easy and Fun

Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart made simple™ computing accessories for the mobile consumer, announced today, a wide variety of products to make holiday gift giving easy and affordable. Kensington's sleek and stylish must-have devices for accessorizing smartphones and netbooks will make ideal gifts for the holiday season and won't leave you sulking over an empty wallet.

The recent October 2009 Consumer Electronics Holiday Purchase Patterns Study* projects that 93% of U.S. adults (an estimated 215 million people) will be purchasing gifts during the upcoming holiday season. Interestingly, though the research indicates that a third of these holiday shoppers are planning to spend less on holiday gifts compared to 2008, the average dollar amount allocated for consumer electronic gift purchases is a respectable $222?an amount that has actually increased by 8% from last year.

"We understand the importance of making smart consumer electronic purchases this holiday season, and Kensington is helping its customers meet that need," says Christine Dumery, Director, Marketing Communications, Kensington. "Demand for products that help enhance usage of mobile devices continues to grow considerably. Our accessories make thoughtful gifts that will keep families connected with the personal technology they depend on in their everyday lifestyle, while still being affordable for their holiday budget."

Smartphone Lovers, Pack Some Power in a Stocking Stuffer
Leave the clutter behind, Kensington offers a compact charger made just for USB-powered devices so that smartphones and other mobile equipment are ready to work at all times. Stuffing stockings this holiday season is now easy and affordable for the mobile moguls on your holiday list.

Don't let the small size and small price fool you, these products go a long way to making a bigger and better experience with any netbook.
