As you ride around in your car chatting on the phone, do you often drive through dead spots and lose the call? Connect your smart phone to this Wilson Electronics cradle booster ($130) that amplifies the available 2G, 3G or 4G cell signal, pulled in by the small dash-mountable antenna. There are two versions coming soon, one (4G-A) for AT&T and one (4G-V) for Verizon, but the company hopes to have a single product later this summer as well as a home version.
