iPhone gets wrapped in mahogany

Wooden case is latest accessory.


OK, just one more iPhone case (for now). We have an excuse for posting yet another one of these items--it's made of wood. And as we've admitted many times, we have a thing for stuff made of lumber.

The latest entry in Miniot's line of "iWood" accessories is a luxury case for the telephonic idol. This particular example scores double points because it's made of mahogany, not some cheap plywood.

The phone can be used while still in the case, according to Sybarites, because its screen is exposed but protected with a polycarbonate sheet while strategically placed holes allow access for earphones and a dock connector. The case is scheduled to come out this month, but Miniot had better hurry--the competition will be flooding the market any minute.
