Case-Mate launches $300 iPhone case
We're big fans of Case-mate products, but we were shocked to hear that the brand's latest offering for the iPhone 4 is priced at a rather steep $300! So we decided to find out just what makes it so special...
The case is officially called the iPhone 4 Titanium Premium Metal Case on the company's website, but is also being referred to as the 'Jett' case and in all fairness it's not just the price tag that screams premium.
The case itself is made of a single piece of titanium, which just so happens to be the same kind of material used in aircraft engines, meaning it's incredibly resilient without being too heavy.
The durability of the case itself doesn't mean it's ugly or bulky either, it comes in a brushed silver color and still manages to make the iPhone look sleek and slim. This is partly because the case isn't just squeezed around or pushed onto your device, it needs to be specially attached... with tools! Each case comes with all of the necessary bits and pieces you'll need to attach it and although it may seem a little extreme, it does mean that there's no way the sides of your phone are never going to get damaged.
Although the price tag is very high, the case is certainly on track to being one of the strongest and most premium accessories on the market.
The thought of spending $300 on what is essentially a cell phone case still makes us wince, but if you're looking for something sleek yet durable and don't mind splashing out, then head over to the Case mate website to get your hands on a Jett.
