    Oh, man.  An iPhone in Apple’s old “Snow White” design language?  I’ll take three, please.

    I’m terribly sorry, but $45 dollars for a piece of plastic/rubber molded to the shape of my iPhone, regardless of cool graphics, is absurd.  One of the very things I loathe about my iPhone.  Accessory envy, and the premium attached to anything that connects to it.  The “phone” is pretty cool though.

      You can pretty much buy cases all day long on eBay/amazon for $10.

         But not ones with cool design. You’re paying for the design work, not the cost of manufacturing and materials (which is all you’re paying for when you buy a case on ebay).

        That said, I think these are cool idea-wise but are kind of lacking in execution (looks cheap and slapped together).

    Make an Apple II one and I’m there.

    At their prices, one would assume they have a license from Apple. Otherwise how can these things be $45?!?

       > Otherwise how can these things be $45?!?

      Because, market analysis reports indicate that people who buy Apple, overpay?

    How soon we forget the programmers button.

  6. Ethan says:

    Now all I need is someone to design a case for my Samsung Droid Charge that makes it look like a Commodore 64.

  7. LinkMan says:

    Looks more Mac SE than Mac Classic, no?

  8. YamaraTheGod says:

    Is the Classic case signed by all the designers on the inside?

    the blue part isn’t even transparent, it’s some cheap sticker.

    I just got a 4S, and I’m interested in some case options besides the plain Belkin that I got to go with it, but at nearly a quarter of what I paid for the phone itself? Yee-heekers! 

  11. kmoser says:

    I want a case that makes it look like a DynaTAC.

  12. leidentech says:

    It’s only worth it if that’s a working SCSI port.

  13. AC Missias says:

    I want these options for my iPod Touch!!!!
    sigh…

  14. Kenneth Hall says:

    How about one that looks like a NeXTCube?

    And they’re gone.
