Any product that supports mobile phone use presents a great branding opportunity. That’s the message from this year’s PPAI Expo, where mobile phone-related promotional products were plentiful. Here are some of my favorites:

The Galaxy screen cleaning cloth comes with a stylus and carry bag for $2.99 and the Delta Stylus Pen with Cleaner runs $1.49 to $2.99.
