Titanium iPhone 4 case is lightweight, but hampers signal
This titanium case from Snow Peak weighs in at only 0.6 ounces, and offers lightweight, durable protection against dents and dings. But let's pause for a moment: titanium hampers wireless signal. And the website even admits that "This product is made of metal that may degrade performance of [the] radio transceiver".
Not only that, the website warns that the case is "intended to cover and not intended to protect," and using the case "could result in [the] iPhone 4 being scratched". Wow. Then consider that this little status symbol costs US$119.95, and we've got a real marketing challenge on our hands.
We understand that celebrities cover their iPhones in diamonds and such, but even they wouldn't do something that might inhibit cell signal. So we'll pose the question to our readers: Would anyone be interested in buying this case (we won't judge you)?
