Genuine launches new accessories lines


Chessington-based accessories distributor Genuine Solutions has added two product lines.

‘Berry Buddy’ is a line in handset cradles for the BlackBerry Curve and the Pearl, pitched as an alternative to a bulky desktop charging station.

It will also stock the ‘TalkTool’ handsfree visor kit, which has 10 hours talk time, caller display and “superior audio quality”.

Genuine UK sales manager Lee Edwards said: “New product lines are not easy to come by, as investing money in products outside of the major manufacturers can be hit or miss at the best times.

“Nokia batteries are an easy sale, and everyone will always need Samsung chargers. But when the big players produce a speaker kit or a stereo headset they come at a price, and with everyone selling them it’s difficult for dealers to make margins.

“The products we’re sourcing compliment our range and give our customers an alternative.”
