Well this case manages to be rediculously giant, ugly, and pointless all at the same time. I know this forum is filled with Apple fanboys but I mean really, why do people like these rediculous cases?

I love my bookbook on my 4S. Just wish they'd ditch the book motif and offer plain styling. But I do love having my phone and wallet together.

I finally saw one of these up close today when in Starbucks. A guy had it out on the table top, I noticed, asked him how he liked it and how old it was.

He said it was one of the originals, it was in amazing condition. Kind of different. Very nice. I may just have to order one for the fun of it. Certainly interesting.

Everyone is saying "WHO WOULD BUY THIS!!??" Well, here is why I bought the BookBook and am buying one for my iPhone 5.

I was in a taxi on my iPhone and set it down on my lap while I was talking to my wife. Didn't realize where my phone was until I had left the cab and I never saw it again. (cue the critics "JUST PUT IT IN YOUR POCKET DUMA$$!")

Well, I'm happy with my BookBook. It looks great, can sit on my desk as an angle a-la-iPad, and I haven't ever misplaced it.

One final thing for the guy who yapping about protection. My BookBook has flopped out of my hands and onto the floor plenty of times and the leather protected it every time. My dad had a case on his 4S and it fell face first on the pavement. Cracked screen. I'm sure my BookBook has paid for itself over the many times I've faceplanted it on the floor!

Had one on my 4S, loved it. Now that I've had my 5 I can see how convenient it is, but with light weight aluminum frame of the iPhone 5 and the reports of "bent" 5's already I wouldn't put my 5 in this case and back pocket it.

I wouldn't put my iPhone, in a case, skin, naked, or otherwise, in my back pocket. That's basically begging for a pickpocket.

Seems like a pretty nice case. Esthetically not my cup of tea but it does look very well made.

Me. This is the ONLY case for me. I've been waiting for this one ever since the iPhone 5 was announced and I won't go for anything else. Great quality, also holds your credit cards and money and looks great. A definite must-buy for me.

Funny how folks are getting worked up over this.

It's simply a matter of personal preference and individual tastes.

I guess that's what forums are for - expressing different opinions.
However, some of you seem to have anger management issues.

Will this fit in a man's shirt pocket? That's where my iphone lives, and if I can keep a wallet out of my pants pocket that give me another option for other things I carry.

Given the popularity of bluetooth headsets, I very much doubt that the majority of users of this are using headsets. I imagine it's the vast minority just as with any other mobile phone/case combination out there.

Because with a case like that, your phone isn't always in the case. It's easy to remove and pull out when you want to hold it in your hand from time to time.

But i like to hold it in my hand without taking it out of anything. I just don't like cases. Tried them many times, not for me.

It does look a little different, besides being taller with an extra card slot and thinner along with a camera hole.

It seems like it won't be as easy to take the phone out now, because there's a different framing around it now. I guess they figured since there's a camera hole, people won't need to take the phone out. I personally wouldn't need to, but that was a topic of debate in this thread.

The brown also looks better this time around, at least in my opinion. I think it looks good, although some are going to complain how the framing around the phone isn't the same.

They are more likely 35-40 yo middle class (white?) professionals, yet they don't show a picture of that.
Congrats, you just figured out marketing.

Kind of crappy that those of us on their mailing list who expressed interest months ago get no special warning or early ordering. Seems like we should have at least had the opportunity to get to the front of the line on ordering.

I'm still ordering one because the quality of their products is amazing, but not happy about the lack of info.

I got an e-mail from them. What did you expect? When you sign up to get updates, all any company is going to do is let you know it's available for order. There is never any special treatment.

It's "ridiculous", not "rediculous". Sorry to be that guy.

I actually talk on my iPhone, I bet it would look pretty silly answering a small leather-bound book all day.

In fact they probably sold your email address, and everyone else who signed up, to help finance their hipster book cover for iPhone business.
