FOR THE GADGET GUY: an iPhone Case {or any phone case}

iphnmusicI remember when the iPhone came out in June 2007 (I laughed a lot when I watched the iPhone musical for the first time).

My husband and I were in awe, but we weren't about to shell out over $500 for a phone.

So we waited.

The prices dropped.

And then we bought them.

And the iPhone IS incredible. I think all of the talk is called for, actually. It's a feature-laden product that is truly innovative.

Want to...

  • get directions?
  • take a picture of your baby asleep in her carseat?
  • look up movie times?
  • send an e-mail to a friend?
  • play a game?
  • watch a movie?
  • listen to music?
  • schedule a meeting?
  • read a book?
  • update your Facebook status?

NO PROBLEM! With an iPhone, you can do it all.

If your guy has an iPhone, he probably wants to protect it because it's a pricey phone with a lot of important data on it. Why not surprise him with a case for Father's Day?

NOTE: The following cases are specifically designed for the iPhone 3G.

Stylish and sleek, this fully leather case is the height of professionalism. The grey stitching around the edges is subtle and the solid black leather matches with everything. He'll be able to toss his iPhone in his pocket or messenger back without worrying about scratches or smudges. ***Enter to win an iPod or iPhone case of your choice from Belkin - see below.

The Folio is snazzy and sturdy. Available in red or black leather, this a a great classic case with a little extra pizazz. The slim profile will please dad because it will slip in his pocket with ease. This is actually my husband's favorite case of these three options because it is so lean. The only bummer about this case is that the designer apparently forgot to add in a hole for the camera (oops!).

  1. Viva Creation has released a series of Genuine cell phone leather Flip cases for the iPhone 3GS. Riding on the popularity of their Snakeskin and Carbono cases, it is no surprising that they will release these series of real premium calfskin leather cases for the iPhone 3GS.

  2. My hubby likes things to be streamlined, so most cases aren't for him. I think the leather laminate case from Belkin might work for him because it is sleek but subtle.
