In this job, I get to try out a lot of cases, and they're usually plastic, metal, rubber, or fabric. But the Q Card Case for CM4 is an interesting hybrid, combining a soft leather-like fabric where it counts and rubber for the phone case component. They have even applied for a patent for this combination.
The fabric portion has a slot that can hold up to three credit card or ID cards as well as some cash. There's a nice slot that makes it easy to eject the cards as needed.
I've been playing with the original iCade for a few months (see original article here), and it's been great fun, but it sure ain't portable.
Well, the folks at ION have come through. At CES, they showed off their new iCade Jr., which brings arcade-style joystick and buttons from the larger model to the iPhone and iPod touch.
The iPad was meant to be turned into an Etch-A-Sketch! With the officially licensed Etch-A-Sketch case, from Headcase, combined with the iOS app, you can wow your friends, classmates, and colleagues. Everyone has thought of it, but Headcase went ahead and did it, for both the iPhone and iPad.
You can't help but smile when you see the case. And when you use the app, it all comes back to you. Of course you can shake it to erase it... It wouldn't be legitimate without that feature!
I have had my eye on one of thos cool GoPro waterproof cameras that you mount to your helmet. But at $300 plus various accessories, it was hard to justify. So while wandering around CES, as soon as I saw the Optrix, I knew I had a solution. As John Willenborg, the inventor of the Optrix HD points out, you already have a great 1080p videocamera, so why buy a GoPro when you can make a rugged case for the iPhone 4 or iPod touch.
It seems as if CES is almost 50% iPhone cases so it must be very challenging to stand out! Rokform has found a way with their Rokbed, a rugged case that has several notable features.
First, there is a lanyard option so you can easily keep your phone on your wrist.
Apple does a lot of things right, but an integrated lanyard clip might have helped to prevent dropped (and broken) phones. Then again, AppleCare revenue might be an incentive not to. Enter EK Ekcessories who have been making rugged retention accessories for outdoor, recreation and security since 1985 in Utah. They are addressing the iOS market with a line of rugged leashes that use a 30pin dock connector to attach to the iPhone, iPod touch or even an iPad!
I love the iPhone 4's design, with one exception. I am on record that the glass back is a design flaw that I would like to see go away and it appears that the iPhone 5 may indeed remedy that with a return to aluminum, the favorite material of Apple's recently knighted Sir Jony Ive. Indeed, the glass back is the primary reason I keep my iPhone 4 in a case, where it would harm the aesthetic appeal, per the late Steve Jobs. Fortunately, there are some good-looking cases, including a few with aluminum components. I've shied away from them because they often require special tools to insert or remove the iPhone from the case. Considering that some docks do not accommodate those cases, it can be a pain to carry a special wrench just to remove the case to dock the phone.
How about a beer with your iPhone?
Now here is a gift for the guy who has everything. The Opena is basically a protective skin for the iPhone 4 with a bottle cap opener that slides out. That's about all there is to it.
All you have to do it click your iPhone into it, and you are in business. When you need to open a bottle, there is a metal slider in the back of the unit with a hole in it. Put your finger in the hole and slide upward. Out pops the opener.
