Antec is prepared to make a splash with their mobile product line, appropriately titled Antec Mobile Products (a.m.p). At CES 2013, Justin from Antec showed us the SP1, a Bluetooth speaker, and Pulse, a Bluetooth headset. The best thing about each of the aforementioned products is they both come with a built in microphone, allowing you to seamlessly switch between music and a phone call. Although Antec hasn’t abandoned their core and enthusiast PC market. On display was Antec’s new GX700 case, a rugged military inspired design with space for 240mm radiator on top, and an 11.5 inch graphics card. Antec has also added a few new models to their True Quiet fan line, and a new power supply. Special thanks to Justin for showing us all of the products.
