Geemarc Launches NFC Smartphone Holder for Safe, Convenient and Hands Free Communication

Staying in touch on-the-go is made safe, easy and hands free with an innovative new product from specialist telecommunications equipment group, Geemarc. Engineered to offer drivers a clear view of their device from behind the wheel, the OCTOPUS Smartphone Holder can be placed on the dashboard, air vents, windscreen or stereo system for easy access that’s completely customisable. When combined with next generation Near Field Communication (NFC) technology the holder is ideal for using mobile apps without risking on-road safety.

Smartphones are incredibly useful devices and have now infiltrated every aspect of our daily lives. It can be difficult for users to tear themselves away and while most of the time this can be harmless, distraction on the road can be deadly.  In fact, the latest statistics from the National Safety Council found that an alarming 26% of all car accidents were caused by a driver using a mobile phone.  Whether it’s sending a text, receiving a call, following directions on Google Maps or checking Facebook messages, the use of smartphones while behind the wheel is now banned in most Western countries. The OCTOPUS Smartphone Holder offers an intelligent solution to the problem, with its ultra-strong suction cup holding devices in place so drivers can keep both hands on the wheel. 

Andrew Grossman, Managing Director of Geemarc said, “Our products are designed to enhance the lives of everyday people and the OCTOPUS Smartphone Holder does just this. Smart devices are incredibly convenient yet using them while driving is also a major cause of road accidents. Thanks to a high power suction cup and intelligent NFC compatibility drivers can enjoy safe, convenient and hands free access to their smartphone.”

Using a high power suction cup drivers can stick the OCTOPUS Smartphone Holder to any part of their vehicle’s interior.  This means no more stretching over to the windscreen or balancing it on the knees! It’s quick, easy and designed to cater to the individual preferences of the driver.

For users wanting to experience the ultimate in on-road convenience the OCTOPUS Smartphone Holder is also available with Near Field Communication (NFC) functionality.  This allows NFC compatible phones to automatically open applications that are often used in the car. From navigation and music to phone calls and texts, NFC is the safest, easiest and fastest way to use a smartphone device while driving.

The accessory has been designed to cater for a wide range of smartphone sizes, from 3.5 to 5.8 inch screens when not in a case. Using the OCTOPUS Smartphone Holder is easy. Users simply clip their device into place, then enjoy hands free access, on-the-road.
