Hard shell cases based on the speculated design of the iPhone 5 are now for sale
Without any viable confirmation regarding the design of the upcoming iPhone 5, it’s rather strange to find one case manufacturer jumping the gun by forging ahead in selling their hard shell case based on the speculated design of the highly anticipated smartphone.

Available for purchase right now courtesy of True Supplier, you can pick up a hard shell case for the iPhone5 in a variety of colors for the easy to shell out price of $6.99. Looking at them, you can tell that they follow the leaked design because of its accommodation for the handset’s tapered back design. Indeed regarded as a bold move, especially when we’re not greeted with definitive evidence of the smartphone’s design from a reputable source, its availability suggests that those Chinese case manufacturers are undoubtedly confident about the leaked design.

Still, it makes you wonder if they managed to get everything right. Naturally, it’ll be a waste of time (and money), if the actual design of the handset is slightly different from the rumored ones we’ve been hearing and seeing about of late. Nevertheless, they're taking a gamble on this one, but if it pans out that they're dead-on with its design, they'll obviously be one step ahead of the competition. We're sure they're crossing their fingers at this point…

Man either they know something little others know, or they are counting on dumb people to buy them (or they are dumb themselves). Who would buy a case for a phone that is coming out in over a month????

So I want to buy a case for a phone that may not work, sure 7 bucks is cheap, but I mean I'd rather throw 7 bucks away on the lottery.

If this is correct then it seems not much is going to change.

Didn't some employees of a case maker lose thier jobs over the same kind of leak for the iDiotPhone4 last year? When do these little asians learn not to fu*k with Adolph Jobs and the mighty LawApple.

I wonder how many cases have been sold? Just because a photo is up on a website, doesn't mean they are producing. All it takes is a one-off prototype, and voila....

This seems dumb. Rather spend money on something else, than on a phonecase that might not even fit. Only isheep who buys this...
