The iPhone is the craze of the year, creating a brand new meaning to the word Smartphone. Steve Jobs is hailed like a God. Those with iPhone flaunt it, those without certainly wish that they could. Soon, another craze hits the public, accessorizing their iPhone’s. One can ponder incessantly for ways to best accessorize their iPhone’s.
But a new wave has come, and just in time for Halloween too. Even the iPhone’s can play dress-up. A new case that realizes the phrase “the best of both worlds”. Remember in the 80s when people carried handsets that were the size of a brick? Horrendous as it seems now, the style is making a comeback.
This new 80s style iPhone case allows users to camouflage their iPhone for the brick-sized phone from the 80s. You just need to slide your iPhone into the casing and voila! If you are feeling nostalgic, or are a fan of Gordon Gekko, or are a self-proclaimed trendsetter, then this is for you!
Coming at an extremely affordable price of $20, it measures at 7.5 inches height and 2.5 inches deep. In short, your iPhone is better protected. It also works as a stand for your phone, both vertically and horizontally. Now, here is the bad news; staying true to its retro image, you cannot fit your phone in your pocket with this! But then, everything comes with a price. This case is now in stock, and is compatible with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.
