Recently, we wrote up that Element Case had announced a new, improved version of its swanky Vapor Case called the Vapor Pro iPhone 4 case. It's a slick case with a "unique" titanium alloy finish and a special, aerospace polymer section built over the antenna contact points that the company says eliminates "death-grip" issues and improves Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3G reception. Sweet.
Now, some of you balked when you heard the limited-edition "first run" case costs $150 (yes, you heard right: $150). But we've got some good news: Element has offered to give one away to a very lucky person (sorry, no iPhone 4 included).
