Displaying Your Ancestry Via Your Smartphone

I really enjoy my iPhone.  It rarely leaves my side.  In fact, I guess you could say that it is as much a statement of who I am as my glasses and my sensible shoes.  That’s why I am always on the lookout for fun or unusual cases for my iPhone 4s.

I was trolling around Amazon the other day and found a series of iPhone cases that I think are pretty unique.  They’re made by Speck and are limited edition cases.  This one’s technical name is the Speck SPK-A1391 Limited Edition iPhone 4s Candyshell Case, Germany Flag and you can find it here.  There are also cases with flags from other countries, including Spain, Brazil, Great Britain, China, Canada, Australia, France, Russia,….well, the list goes on.

As the name implies, it is a hard-shell case with a lovely glossy finish.  There is also a rubberized interior which protects your iPhone.  This rubberized finish extends out around the lip of the case to absorb the shock of a fall if you happen to drop your phone.  The slick finish along with the rubbery edges give the entire case a good feel in your hand.  You know that case isn’t going anywhere soon but yet the glossy part in the palm of your hand is a nice, tactile experience.

The cut-outs are exactly lined up so that you can manipulate the switches on your phone and also plug in your charger and your earplugs.  A nice touch is the little border of the coordinating color inside the cut-out.

I found that the buttons that come with the case jut out just the right amount so that you can easily turn on your phone or adjust your volume one-handed with ease.

A special touch is the country name (in German, in this particular case) on the side.  What a neat way to show your pride in your German ancestry, eh?  The cases run between $35 and $40 currently up on Amazon which is probably a little pricey but I’m well-satisfied with mine.  In fact, I think it’s pretty wunderbar!
