iErnest iPhone wallets

iPhone owners, take note, a new case/wallet has entered the picture. A leather moleskine-like outside plus an aluminium mounting device equals subdued cool protection. The outside flap could be handy in deterring any prying eyes next to you on the train or subway too.

Several nice colors to choose from… some shown below.

Vers Shellcase for iPad

I had an opportunity to play around with an iPad this weekend (nevermind it was at this place looking at this stuff) and besides being generally taken with how it works and looks, I came away with a vague dissatisfaction with the plastic case that it was protected by. Now, a plastic case may suit your iPad just fine, but if yours starts showing its age with cracks along the spine (as did the one I saw), please consider a wooden case as a longer lasting alternative. This Shellcase has a metal foot that gives you a stand or angled keyboard option, and though the wood seems to add a bit more heft and size, it certainly provides a welcome warmth to balance out the technology.

Compass Mobile Stand for iPad

If you’re an iPad owner, take note of this handy folding stand. It can be used either as an upright easel (portrait or landscape) or at a keyboard-friendly angle for typing onscreen. Made from heavy gauge steel, you’ll not need to worry about breakage, and the fact that it folds up to a compact size makes it extremely travel friendly.

(Thanks Matt!)

Grove Bamboo iPhone Cases

We featured wooden iPhone cases previously, but with the release of the new iPhone 4, why not show a few more?

Hu2 Unplugged Laptop Sticker

I’m not usually one for decorating my gadgets, but there’s something appealing about this scrolly script sticker. It certainly would remind you in a pleasant way to unplug your laptop, and if you tire of the message, it’s completely removable.

Lacie Formoa and Coat Netbook Cases

Lacie continues its partnership with reknowned product designer Sam Hecht for a line of simple and stylish netbook cases. The Formoa and Coat both feature neoprene rubber protection, accessory pockets, and suede interior linings. Based on its size, it sounds like it’d be a good fit for an iPad or Kindle DX as well.

Freedom of Creation iPhone Cases

High technology meets high fashion in this new line of iPhone cases. The intricate and stylish surface patterns are formed through the use of 3d printing (selective laser sintering to be exact), which also helps absorb shock and increase grip. Additionally, the air channels enable your iPhone to stay cool. Four models are available: Weave, Double Mesh, Maille, and Plaid Armour.

Designer: Janne Kyttänen 2009
Material: Laser Sintered Polyamide

L5 Remote for iPhone and iPod Touch

Actually, it’s just the little pomegranate-colored thing plugged into the dock connector. And that combined with the free app turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a sleek little universal remote. The system is completely customizable to feature as many or as few buttons as you’d like (up to 100,000) and has the brain power to replace up to 1,000 individual remotes: TV, cable, DVR, etc.

Pong iPhone case

So, if you read all the gadget blogs, you’ll have read about the Pong iPhone case. Apparently it deflects harmful radiation away from your head, which sounds really great, but there are complaints of the price and a little bit of skepticism on how well it works. I’ll not go into all the details, but if you’re interested you can read for yourself how it works (see below for the write-ups).

The first scientifically-proven radiation reduction case. Let the embedded Pong module protect your head while the form-fitting case protects your iPhone 3G and 3GS from the rigors of heavy duty use. Pong’s special silicone formula guarantees that your phone maintains full signal strength and battery life.

A Stand Laptop Stand

For those wanting to add a bit of industrial aesthetic to their desktop, look no further than the A Stand Laptop Stand, which is literally made of PVC pipe. That doesn’t sound so great from the start, but it’s finished in a soft touch rubber so it feels great and doesn’t look like it came straight from the hardware store.

Materials: Rubber-coated PVC tubing
Colors: Black, Yellow, White
Dimensions: 14.2� wide and 6� high

Bonus! The packaging for this product is brilliant.

MacBook Air

While not exactly new, the MacBook Air is still the ultimate travel computer. Light enough and uber-portable yet with all the features of a fully-functioning laptop, it takes some beating. Limitations of no built-in optical drive and only one USB are quickly remedied by wireless solutions and the portable DVD/CD drive that you can buy for $99, but who buys CDs and DVDs these days anyway?

If you can afford it, go for the SSD version which really flies and more than makes up for the comparatively slow 2.13GHz processor. Truly awesome and very pretty to boot!

iWood iPhone Case

What happens to your plastic iPhone 3G and 3G S cover when you upgrade and get a new one? Hopefully it goes off to a recycling plant and gets replaced by a sleeker, chicer, and more eco-friendly wooden version by Miniot, carved from a single piece of wood and customizable with an engraved monogram, logo, or personal message.

Available in: maple, cherry, oak, mahogany, padouk, and walnut.
