Mophie intros the Space Pack iPhone case: double your battery life... and storage!
"We wanted to create a product that enables iPhone users to truly enhance their experience by solving some of the core limitations of smartphones," clarified Daniel Huang, the Mophie CEO. "With an iPhone case that provides the charging solution and low-profile protective design expected from Mophie, we've taken the next step and developed an entirely new category, pushing the increasing trend toward mobile computing even further."
The 16 GB Mophie Space Pack version will go for $149.95 when it launches about two months from now, while the 32 GB will run you $179.95. Not cheap, but considering the Mophie build quality, and the fact that each storage upgrade costs at least a Benjamin with Apple, and a decent battery case will run you at least $80, the convenience of a Space Pack might seem like a bargain... or not. What do you think?

It turns out that companies can think if they worked on it

Finally expandable storage on iPhones along with damage protection and extra battery life.
Mophie really deserves the credit..

Such a simple idea, yet no one ever thought of it.
Great work by Morphie

Interesting, how does the storage connect to iPhone, wireless or through the lightening connector port or something ?

far far far too expensive..I'd expect 128GB of storage for that price
a $20 case a $20 battery and about $25 worth of storage..and thats overshooting it at that.

I hate myself. I thought of this a few years ago. Should have drawn it on a damn napkin and ran down to the patent office. Bastards. Oh, well. Good for them, this WILL sell. The price is steep, though.

The non memory version goes for 99.99 so its not steep in that perspective. Its like buying a spare battery, a case, and a memory card.

It strikes me as a little silly that people buy this phone with battery life that isn't sufficient for their needs, and to deal with that, they buy an 80 to 120 dollar case in addition to this 200 dollar phone. If they need more storage, then they finally have another option, but they have to pay an extra 150 bucks for it. There are better solutions that are cheaper. With all that said, at least there is one option now.

Taking this one step further, how about creating a similar case but with an SD card slot?
I doubt it will add to the thickness of the case.

How does iTunes know to access the storage on this case during the sync process once you've run out of memory on the phone itself?
