I’m always looking for creative ways to carry my iPhone and this leather case is as good as it gets. It’s made in a rugged calf leather and padded on the inside for protection. No iPhone? Well, it’s good for other things as well like loose change or your wallet and keys.

If you’re not down with the dozens of iPhone cases out on the market right now, check out the iPhone pocket from Sandqvist. It’s meant to be tossed over your neck and looks strikingly like those iconic Leica cases, no? No? Oh. Well, either way, it looks cool and the thick, brown leather helps make this case stand out. Though it’s marketed for iPhone users, it can fit any mobile phone up to 120 x 63 x 14 mm.

Earlier today, Steve Jobs took the covers off what many fanboys may have already seen. The iPhone 4 is the thinnest iPhone we’ve ever seen and Steve compared the overall aesthetics to a beautiful old Leica camera. The shell’s fitted with a glass front and back and the stainless steel band that goes around the phone doubles as an antenna system. Plus, there are two cameras, one with an LED flash and a 5 megapixel sensor, both enabled for video conferencing via the FaceTime app.
Under the hood is where the real funs begins, with Apple‘s A4 chip securely fastened alongside a bigger battery which gives for 7 hours of 3G talk, 6 hours of 3G browsing, 10 hours of WiFi browsing, 10 hours of video, and 40 hours of music. The WiFi is 802.11n now and the display’s extremely crispy with a 960 x 640 resolution that should be perfect for viewing that HD video you record at 720p / 30fps.
The iPhone 4 will be available in white or black, retailing at $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for 32GB. They go on sale June 24th, and AT&T will be giving some extra grace upgrade timing — up to six months early. Look for preorders to begin next week.
Comprised of an accessory and free app, the L5 Remote transforms the iPhone and iPod touch, and now even the iPad, into a personal universal remote that controls televisions, DVD players, DVRs, cable boxes, audio equipment, and most other products that come with an infrared remote. Setting up the device to mimic your other remotes is pretty seamless and you can actually manage which “buttons” show up via a simple drag-and-drop technique.
Many of us have dreamt of turning Apple’s greatest creation into a powerful touchscreen entertainment management system, and this may prove to be the first step in the right direction.

We’re not big on speculation but when it comes to the iPhone, we’re all ears. Seriously. So some crazy events have taken place in the past few weeks, all of which have begun to surface. An Apple engineer left a 4th generation iPhone prototype at a bar, which was picked up by some guy that gave Gawker media (owners of Gizmodo) the opportunity to give it an examination, for monetary fee of course. If this really is the next gen iPhone, then I’m sold. It’s bringing a new front-facing camera as well as a beefed-up back camera and a larger battery. The screen’s a bit smaller but the resolution’s been hiked up.
For anyone that missed today’s major unveiling of the Apple iPhone’s 4.0 OS, we’ve got a quick breakdown. Some key enhancements to look forward to include the highly anticipated multitasking feature. The masses have been asking for it and now Steven Jobs and Co. will deliver. You’ll be able to run multiple apps at the same time, like using Skype to make a call and getting directions from TomTom’s GPS navigation app. You can run other apps like Pandora and check your email, without having to worry about the song going on pause. This feature will only be limited to the iPhone 3GS, while the 3G and Edge versions will be left out in the cold. Sucks for those guys. (more…)
With the continuation of Curated by Arkitip, artist and designer Evan Hecox displays his fascination with the urban landscape on Incase products, presented as the sixth installment of the well-received collaborative effort. “Available today, the Evan Hecox series has been issued in three limited editions: London, New York and Tokyo. As the project’s first artist to present a series of products, Hecox brings to life nontraditional depictions of the famed cities and their associated national emblems on our signature MacBook Sleeve and iPhone Slider Case. Hecox filters the mundane into captivating illustrations of London, New York and Tokyo seemingly filled with narratives beyond the images themselves, and applies them to MacBook Sleeves. The Hecox Slider Cases complement the three Sleeves, bearing instantly recognizable national symbols of the three cities. Hecox re-imagined the symbols through his stylistic approach, resulting in artistic interpretations that are both familiar and new.”

You can really do a lot with the tool, from picking a background color, adding an array of drawing elements and then finally by apply a special effect, such as kaleidoscope or mirroring. The more layers you add, the more in depth your design becomes. For a $40 pricetag, you can create a truly unique case. Plus, the design can be downloaded or uploaded to Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. They also save it online for two weeks, allowing a creator to go back and preview or edit the design at any time.
A few months back, FLO TV showed a prototype for bringing its mobile tv service to the iPhone, but it required a hideous attachment. Now that Mophie, the make of the popular Juice Pack, has joined hands with the FLO TV, that attachment is gone and the hardware is integrated right into the Juice Pack. What could be a better marriage, the receiver for watching TV and the extra battery life to keep it going all wrapped into one attachment. (via engadget)
