Google Nexus 7 Tablet has now arrived at Proporta HQ

The brand new Google Nexus 7 Tablet has now landed at Proporta’s office to some very excited people. We prized it away from a gaggle of Proportians to unbox it officially in our traditional way.

Keep your eyes peeled for some great new Google Nexus 7 cases on the way from us too. Find out more about Google Nexus 7 in our recent blog post.

Texting is more popular than calling in the UK

According to Ofcom, we in the UK love to tap away on our phones to communicate rather than have a good old-fashioned chin-wag as texting has overtaken traditional phone calls.

Their research has shown that last year 58% of people contacted others by SMS each day, compared with just 47% making a call daily.

Texting

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the age group responsible for this shift is 16-24 whose members can’t get enough of of text time.

Other revealing facts to come out of the study included:
– The average UK mobile user sends about 50 texts each week
– Less calls are being made than ever on mobiles and landlines
– For a first, the volume of mobile calls fell last year
– 39% of us own smartphones
– We spend an hour and a half on social networks and email through our mobile devices each week
– 11% of us now own a tablet like the iPad

All this got us thinking, it’s a good thing that Proporta makes some exquisite smartphone and tablet cases so that texting can be done with style and protection too!

Proporta has made it onto the Apple Store homepage

There’s a buzz of excitement here at Proporta HQ as we have made it onto the Apple Store homepage with a range of patriotic flag cases.

iPhone 4S case - flagiPhone case - USA

With our lovely choice of vintage style flag iPhone cases, you can show your support and protect your iPhone 4 / 4S at the same time. The great thing about the Apple Store feature is that no matter which country you are in, the flag at the front represented will change accordingly (try it out, we’ve spent a bit of time saying “ooh” and “aah” at this).

Apple will also be providing US athletes with the USA flag iPhone case in the next few weeks too! So keep your eyes peeled for them when you’re showing your support.
