    Default Belkin iPhone Armband
    In July, Belkin will release an armband for iPhone. Priced at $30, the armband is made with a breathable material and has a very attractive industrial look.

    An interesting aspect the iPhone will bring to the portable device accessory market is innovation. The iPhone has been adding a lot of pressure on portable device manufacturers to bring new types technologies and user interfaces to the market but accessory manufacturers also feels the need for innovation with the iPhone. Consumers will greatly benefit from these innovations with better adapted products that reflects Apple's ingenious design.

    There’s even a side pocket to hold a key. The screen is fully accessible through a clear protective layer. The armband is machine washable.

    Ya, does look cool. There's a sport model (comes in blue) too but I really wonder sometimes just how many people, other than joggers and those at the gym, actually use these things? I prefer something that is clipped or fastened to my belt.

    There's a nice Red Flyer wagon that is to be released around mid-July that would come in real handy. It even has extra liner pouches that can carry up to 12 old cell phones...very cool.

    i sold my nano (and im a runner, wewt) yesterday so im without some tunes for a little while...

    although i rarely run with music because the sound is a lot different after i start running (sounds like the music is going slower than normal, very odd) so i dont run with it anymore

    The Belkin Sport Armband for the Iphone is a great way for joggers and runners to have a way of securing their iphone. I also use this armband at work, and tuck the armband under the sleeve of my shirt away from view and run the earbuds through my shirt. This is a great way to listen to music and not worrie about sitting on or smashing the iphone. I also use this when I go walking and the same thing, it fits sung around the arm with good grip and has a stretchy material so it does not cut off circulation.

    pros: nice looking, wears easy, durable, can wear at work or sport, fits on and stays on without cutting off circulation

    cons: (due to the touch screen) you will have a difficult time getting the phone out because the plastic screen which gives you access and protects your iphone while using also sticks to the screen and prevents you from pulling it out quickly, does not rotate, cannot dock without taking it out

    overall, this is an excellent product if you are a runner or just need somewhere to put it during work, but dont expect to whip it out and show it off because it can take some time. Due to the constant use of the iphone at work, i tend not to use it at work any more because of this, but i still use this when Iam only going to listen to my ipod/podcasts like while running/walking. Its very comfortable and sleek and stylish.

    I bought it a week ago and i like it a lot. The only problem I have with it is that the armband is a little too small for me. Need to do some modding to it to fight right.

    Did you ever complete the modding process? I heard it was only for an 11 inch bicep... and mine is bigger than that. Your thoughts? I actually purchased mine and i will be picking it up tomorrow.

    The armband is really snug on me as well, plus if you are doing chest or any type of bicep/tricep workout it gets in the way. What I do, and did it with my belkin armband for my mini is i actually wear it on the top of my forearm. It fits perfectly and I can access the touchscreen with no problems

    I like the fact that it is snug. I had an arm band I bought from the apple store (inCase brand) that always seemed to slide down my arm as I was running.
