Griffin Technology Joins Motorola’s M4DE Program Launching New Moto X and Droid Accessories
Nashville, Tenn. – August 28, 2013 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, has been named an official partner of the new Motorola M4DE Program (Made for Motorola). Accessories with the M4DE mark are tested by Motorola to ensure a perfect fit with their new Moto X and 2013 Droid series. Today Griffin introduces their new charging and vehicle docks, as well as a case collection, all of which are certified M4DE for Moto X and Droid Mini, Maxx and Ultra.
"We are honored that Motorola values our continued excellence in the mobile category and selected Griffin among the world's best brands in their M4DE program," said Mark Rowan, President of Griffin Technology. "The new ecosystem of M4DE accessories will no doubt enhance the user experience and we at Griffin are proud to provide key charging, vehicle, and protection solutions to the assortment."
Leading the line-up is Vehicle Dock, $39.99, for Moto X, Droid Mini, Droid Maxx, and Droid Ultra, a window and dash mount that automatically enables the smartphone’s Car Mode when placed in the cradle. Motorola’s text-to-speech feature reads incoming text messages aloud and powerful voice recognition accepts spoken commands. The touch-free experience eliminates the need for users to take their eyes off the road and keeps their hands safely on the wheel.
Vehicle Dock provides a micro-USB connector so users can charge their smartphone when using it. The cradle’s rubber pads grip the phone and hold it securely while conveniently accommodating most cases. A heavy-duty silicone suction cup and locking lever strongly secures the mount to a window or dash and can easily be adjusted using the ball-and-socket joint. Vehicle Dock for Droid Mini, Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx is now available and Vehicle Dock for Moto X will be available in late September.
Griffin’s PowerDock, $39.99, does more than charge Moto X, Droid Mini, Droid Maxx, and Droid Ultra, it activates Android Daydream and provides an easy to read display for any room in the house. When placed in the dock, the phone's info display and Touchless Control voice command features activate, allowing hands-free access to set reminders, the alarm clock, and more. The oversized time and alarm display make PowerDock perfect for the nightstand, counter or desk. Conveniently compatible with most cases, the charging dock also comes with an AC power supply and a detachable micro-USB cable. PowerDock for Droid Mini, Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx is now available and PowerDock for Moto X will be available in late September.
Griffin’s premium leather case series, Midtown, has been tailored for Moto X and ships in mid-September. Midtown Wallet, $44.99, features a bifold wallet design that holds the Moto X, cards and cash, and keeps everything protected, organized and easily accessible. This compact, one-piece folio opens like a book to reveal the Moto X touchscreen then closes for privacy and protection. Similarly, the Midtown Flip, $39.99, conveniently protects Moto X while the pockets inside the flipcover keep cards and cash handy.
Reveal for Moto X, Droid Mini, Droid Maxx, and Droid Ultra shields the smartphones from the indignities of the outside world, adding only a millimeter in thickness. Reveal is a sleek, ultra-thin case design with slim rubber edges that cushion and grip the phone tight, while allowing access to screen, controls and ports. The Reveal case for Moto X, Droid Mini, Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx are now available in a variety of colors for $24.99.
