Twelve South SurfacePad for iPhone is their latest offerings of “covers” for Apple Products. The company always has quite innovative products for Apple stuff.. and I am glad to land my hands on the Twelve South SurfacePad for iPhone for a quick look at the unboxing process.. :)
Nice name.. but it is nothing but a iPhone 5 cover (Cause Twelve South said, “dont call it a case” :p)
iPhone cases have gotten so thick and bulky, many users have chosen to let their iPhones go with no case at all. SurfacePad for iPhone is designed to guard against the more typical dangers of daily life….. Made from luxury Napa leather, SurfacePad dresses up iPhone unlike any other cover. At less than 1/10th an inch thick and weighing less than one ounce, this thin leather jacket does not interfere with the buttons, ports or camera on iPhone.
Free (paper) iPhone….nice ! :)
Dont know what this is for.. as “useful” as the Apple Stickers that are given with each Apple product..
With my iPhone 5 (already so many scratches from just a few months of usage :p)… and the case/cover/pad is stuck on the back of your iPhone 5 by a layer of very sticky stuff which does not make the back of your iPhone sticky when removed.. trust me on that, it took me more than 10 times to try to adjust the fit and hence remove/stick/remove/stick many times :)
Also the cover has a built-in stand sewn into the back cover. Flex the back of SurfacePad for iPhone and set iPhone on a flat surface to watch your movies, do a conference call or even make it a bedside clock :)
For Singaporean readers, don’t bother ordering online with Twelve South.. the shipping cost is crazy.. order from Amazon and the shipping cost is cheaper..
