HP TouchPad reduced to only $99

As word hit the streets, sales of the tablet sky rocketed with some stores in New York and other major cities completely selling out of these items due to the very low price and high demand.

LCF and Proporta featured on Metro Online

A few months ago we announced that we had worked with London College of Fashion asking  students there to design some cases that could be used in day to day life.

Metro was part of the judging panel to choose three winners, who may see their creations included in Proporta’s future product range.
