Over the last few weeks, I have come to feel that Apple might have designed the antenna on the iPhone just so they can sell more bumper cases. But with all of the negative media hype about the purported reception issues, I have a feeling that Apple’s press conference today is going to announced everyone is getting a free bumper case anyhow.
Thanks to the smooth, flat edge of the iPhone 4, it’s the perfect surface for applying vinyl decals to protect the metal finish (and help with the phone’s antenna sensitivity issues when touching parts of the metal too).
The guys over at Hypebeast stumbled onto these images of an iPhone 4 paired up with the lens from a dSLR camera.
While details are scarce, and some commenters think the rig is fake, I think it’s real, especially from the Manfrotto pocket tripod mount, which is a legitimate photographers accessory, featured previously here on Technabob.
iPhone haters really like to rag on the fact that the phone has no actually keys, only virtual ones. This somewhat impractical, but clever add-on aims to fix that shortcoming.
By taking a small wireless Bluetooth keyboard, and crafting a hinged mount for it, modder Pachimon managed to do what we once thought was impossible – give the iPhone actual keys!
The latest victim of gadget spare parts seller and repair shop iFixit is none other than the iPhone 4, its naughty bits splayed out on a table for all the world to see – like its *gasp* vibrating motor.
