G-Tech Bluetooth bags
Launching later this month is the G-Tech Bluetooth Messenger Bag, which lets users control an iPod or cellphone without removing it from its compartment. Like the company's existing iPod Backpack, smart fabric located in the strap takes the place of conventional buttons. Speakers are also built in, connecting to a device through a 3.5mm input jack. The Bluetooth bag is of course wireless, and has extra controls, namely for muting music to take a call. A third-party receiver/transmitter is needed to control iPods. The price of the Messenger has not been finalized, but it should be comparable to that of the Techno and Psycho backpacks, which range between $80-100.
