MoGo Talk case and headset combo tested
Carrying a Bluetooth headset often adds a certain amount of inconvenience, and iPhone owners have been accustomed to this as even fewer truly portable options exist for them. Newton Peripherals hopes to fix that with the MoGo Talk for iPhone that we're reviewing here; it stows the headset into a discreet case that keeps the phone somewhat safe. It's promising, but with an ultra-thin headset, will it be a question of sacrificing space for convenience?

Newton MoGo Mouse for NBs
Newton Peripherals on Wednesday announced the release of its MoGo Mouse for Netbooks. Smaller still than the company's already low-profile mice, the wireless presenter mouse is just 0.2 inches thick and half an ounce light, using Bluetooth 2.0 to communicate with a matching Bluetooth USB adapter. When not in use, the mouse is stored in a similarly thick holster that optionally sticks onto the outside surface of any netbook.
Newton Mogo Talk headset
Newton Peripherals on Tuesday released its MoGo Talk Bluetooth headset for notebooks. The ultra-thin headset comes with a frame that lets it slide into a notebook's ExpressCard slot for storage and charging. The headset itself uses a flexible thin-rubber eartip that conforms to a wearer's ear for comfort, instead of the more common earbud or earloop, while multiple eartip sizes are included for a custom fit.
Mogo Talk iPhone Case
Newton this afternoon rolled out its first peripheral made just for iPhone users. The MoGo Talk case protects the back of an iPhone 3G or 3G S but has a shallow slot to fit a bundled MoGo headset. The in-ear Bluetooth earpiece not only stows away but also charges through the slot to let owners charge both the iPhone and the headset with a single cable. Despite the thin size, it has a talk time of about four hours.
