So the CES show officially kicked off to the public today. Naturally this is where the coolest gadgets, including phones and tablets, are going to be revealed to the world. And with cool phones often comes an array of cool cell phone accessories to go with them. Of course there are also several head scratchers that make their way onto shelves. We figured we’d have a little fun here on the blog and show you a bit from both worlds. Might as well start out with the ridiculous.
This plastic piece of insanity is called the Vine, and I think the picture speaks for itself. Our question is who exactly would use a cell phone holster like this? Perhaps if you’re Italian like myself and speak with your hands a lot this would make talking on the phone seem more natural. Or maybe you’re just too damn lazy to exert the energy required to lift and hold a 5 oz. phone. Naturally the Vine will probably sell a billiondy units and I’ll eventually get one just to not be the only person on earth not to be wearing one. That’s usually how these things go.
If you are looking for a more practical holder for your phone, this Speck Tough Skin iPhone case might be up your alley.
It’s not exactly top secret information that the iPhone 4 is a bit on the fragile side. It’s also pretty much a given that we all drop our phones a lot more often than we’d like to admit. So wrapping up a $500 phone in something designed to do more than just look cute might not be a bad idea.
