No more losing your USB flash drive with this iPhone case
Even though everything seems to be moving towards the cloud, there are still some benefits attached with physically holding onto your data. When USB flash drives first hit the scene, they were regarded as the future of data storage – replacing things such as floppy disks, CDs, and ZIP drives. Nowadays, they’re mostly found dangling around our key chains, but if you happen to own an iPhone 4/4S, you now have another option.

Enter the ego Hybrid Series USB case for the iPhone 4/4S, which so happens to incorporate a removable USB flash drive for easy access to your important data. As you can tell from the photo, the USB drive is discretely stored in the slide-in nook found in the rear of the case – so it’s conveniently within reach at a moment’s notice. On top of that, the case offers superior protection, boasts scratch resistant qualities, and allows for easy access to all of the iPhone’s ports.

In terms of pricing, it’ll vary depending on the capacity of the USB flash drive. Specifically, the 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities are priced respectively at $34.95, $39.95, and $49.95 – all of which are available in a variety of pastel colors. Therefore, if you want to securely and safely have your flash drive at all times, you ought to consider checking out the ego Hybrid Series USB case.

Cool concept. I wouldn't mind this for myself. I use my USB flash drive so frequently - especially for work.

Not a bad idea, but I think having the case turn the phone into the actual usb storage would be better

Creative, however, if Apple would let their phones be used as a usb storage device, this wouldnt be needed.

You can still lose your USB flash drive. Only with this case, you'll be losing your phone as well as your flash drive.

For 39.99 you can buy a 32GB. Another reason why i hate apple when they don't support SD CARDS or removable battery
