  • BookBook Case Turns your iPhone into a Vintage Leather Bound Book

    A couple of months ago we covered the BookBook case for the MacBook Air. Well, now Twelve South has come out with something similar, only this time for the iPhone 4. The BookBook for iPhone is a wallet and an iPhone case all in one. With the case closed, your iPhone looks like nothing more than a vintage leather bound book.

    The wallet portion of the case has a convenient ID window and has room for up to four credit cards. The case also has room for a bit of cash and receipts inside the vertical pocket. All of the controls and ports are easily accessible so you won’t have to remove your iPhone in order to charge it.

    Taking a picture is not a problem either with the BookBook case. To snap pictures simply pull the red tab and your iPhone will slide up about a ¼ inch. The lens is then exposed allowing you to take as many pictures as you want.

    The BookBook for iPhone has been designed to work exclusively with the iPhone 4 and will set you back $59.99. By bringing the iPhone and wallet together in one convenient package, you’ll never misplace your wallet again. Just call your iPhone to find it. Of course, you’ll have to remember to leave the ringer volume turned up.

      There is a target audience for this, and it would include folks like me. I already prefer to carry my iPhone in a wallet, along with driver's license and minimal "cardage," so this would just make it look sharp. I am the demographic they are shooting for. And, I would buy one now - except that getting one this close to the release of the next iPhone wouldn't make sense, as I have had every iPhone version and updated each one as the next was released.

      I really hope they'd release this quickly for the iphone 5 when it comes out... i'm not about to invest 60$ into a NEW case for my old iphone 4 when the new ones around the corner ... agree anyone ?

      Just updating this thread... they have now introduced a black version for all Mac items, and have re-done the iPad version. I already owned the first iPad BookBook, but when I saw the improvements they made in it, I immediately purchased the new version. I guess if anyone is looking for a used-but-like-new BookBook for iPad (twelve south's first model) let me know - I have one to sell!
