    Quite a bunch of people. What's your problem with it?

    This is good news. I knew this was getting close to release. I've been going back and forth on getting an iPhone 5, but I honestly would want this case to be available before I bought one.

    Me. It's very classy and helps consolidate my personal belongings. It sucked carrying a phone, wallet and keys leaving me with bulky pockets and accessories spilling out. This combines all of it, and looks very classy at the same time. Plus it's easier to hide and protect the phone in plain sight.

    Side note: I had my home broken into a year ago, and my SO and I have a lot of books (we're avid readers). While they took some of the typical stuff (PS3, games, etc.), they didn't even bother with the books, which both her Macbook Pro and my MacBook Air were sitting on the bookshelf in their BookBook cases. As far as we were concerned, they proved their worth there alone.

    Got to laugh at the young attractive model on the web site. I'm sure she would be keen to be seen with one of these in public. :rolleyes:

    Once you try a BookBook for iPhone it is REALLY hard to go back. I got an iPhone 5 at launch and have been waiting for baited breath. I can't wait.

    God i hate iPhone cases. I think it's hard to argue that the phone looks better without them 100% of the time. I understand why some people need them, but they're very aesthetically unappealing. My iPhone is a working device, i don't care if it gets a few scratches here and there. It's not a museum piece!

    Yeah.. and Speck, Incipio, Otterbox, iFrogz, Belkin, Michael Korz, Morphie, Kate Spade, and Incase make such real classy cases and wallets that everyone could also use. :rolleyes:

    You do know that this is genuine distressed leather that looks and feels like a classic book, right? Judging by your only looking at the pictures, I would assume not.

    So before passing judgment on it, you could do yourself a favour and at least get to your closest Apple Store and have a look and feel of the case yourself, as they do sell them there.

    It is. I had a nearly $10,000 claim on my homeowner's insurance, after bringing in the damage to my house (some of it I'm still recouping). It would have been worse because my SO's Mac had all of the pictures of our children's births on it and mine had all of our business data on it (yes, we have backups).

    But still, their cases proved their worth to us that I'd recommend them to anyone.

    So you're arguing you hate covers because they're not aesthetically appealing, yet you don't care about getting scratches on your phone because you don't care about your phone being aesthetically appealing. :confused:

    Hey, let's not get so heated up.

    My point was I doubt that the main market of this cases are 17-18 yo young woman.

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


    As for genuine leather, looks like a real book, if that's what you like, fine!

    I was commenting on the marketing on the web page. There are aprox 20 pics trying to show this has a young, hip and sexy product, which was rather nausea provoking.

    Do the new models have a hole for the camera / flash?

    So in your eyes, this is a product for old people? I would think young people would get this just as much.

    I'm exactly the same. Determined not to buy anymore cases because after a few hours I take them off never to be used again. Prefer using the phone naked.
