High school students, college coeds and young professionals who can’t live without their iPhones and iPods can now keep constant tabs on their technological addiction with the new iHangy. Backed by OnTrion, the manufacturer of premium mobile phone batteries, the iHangy comes in two varieties, a necklace and a keychain, both of which include a touchpen. iHangy is designed to hang securely around the neck or to attach to clothing, bags and purses so that one’s iPhone / iPod is always within easy reach. The product line is compatible with the iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS and 3 models as well as the iPod Touch, Shuffle, Nano and Classic.
According to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, an estimated 12 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds and 14 percent of 25- to 34-year-olds now own an iPhone. Based on 2010 U.S. Census data, those figures add up to approximately eight million iPhone owners in the U.S. alone among those younger age brackets. Moreover, an Apple spokesperson estimates that 300 million iPods have been sold since the product was launched 10 years ago. Of those, 45 million of have been purchased in the last year (July 2010 to June 2011).
All of that adds up to a lot of young adults with an Apple smartphone and/or music / video device attached to their ear on any given day. But with price tags for the newest iPhones in the several-hundred-dollar range and the iPod Touch trailing not far behind, misplacing, stepping on and breaking or outright losing one of these high-tech gadgets can be financially devastating.
A new product by OnTrion, the manufacturer of OEM-quality mobile phone batteries, keeps consumers’ investment safe at all times by securing their Apple device to their body. The iHangy necklace appeals to fashion-conscious young women who want to make a statement with their accessories. It comes in pink, white and black color palettes to coordinate with any outfit. For the young men or non-jewelry female fans who are addicted to their iPhone or iPod, iHangy also comes in a keychain variation that clips to their belt loop, backpack or purse.
