Twelve South Introduces BookBook for iPhone

MarsEdit

Twelve South makes some of the nicest accessories around. We reviewed their BookBook iPad case and loved it. (My father-in-law stole it for his iPad and still won’t give it back!) We bought and reviewed their Compass iPad stand and I still use it quite often. Now Twelve South is introducing the BookBook for iPhone and it look awesome.

The BookBook for iPhone 4 is “a beautiful, pocket-sized wallet that holds both iPhone 4 and your driver’s license, debit card, cash and receipts”.

As the company explains,

Made exclusively for iPhone 4, this tiny vintage book replaces the need for a traditional wallet, which means one less item to keep up with, and one less thing in your pocket or purse. Two of your must-have items, iPhone and wallet, become one item. Having iPhone inside BookBook means you will never forget your wallet again.

Personally I tend to prefer a slim iPhone case that is as minimalist as possible. Still, the ability to have your iPhone and wallet in one place is attractive. Add in the fact that I have yet to be disappointed with one of Twelve South’s products and something tells me that I may just have found my next “daily driver”. Fortunately, I have a review sample on the way!

You definitely want to check out this video of the BookBook for iPhone.

The new BookBook for iPhone 4 is available now at Apple Store and twelvesouth.com for $59.99. More images and details can be found here.

Twelve South puts your money where your phone is. Introducing BookBook for iPhone.

Charleston, SC, July 26, 2011 – Twelve South is pleased to announce the arrival of a new must-have accessory for iPhone owners. BookBook for iPhone 4 is a beautiful, pocket-sized wallet that holds both iPhone 4 and your driver’s license, debit card, cash and receipts. The new BookBook for iPhone 4 is available now at Apple Store and twelvesouth.com for $59.99. More info and images can be found here.

Made exclusively for iPhone 4, this tiny vintage book replaces the need for a traditional wallet, which means one less item to keep up with, and one less thing in your pocket or purse. Two of your must-have items, iPhone and wallet, become one item. Having iPhone inside BookBook means you will never forget your wallet again.

The sturdy leather cover provides maximum protection for iPhone. Open BookBook for edge-to-edge access to iPhone. There are no frames getting in the way of your thumbs. All buttons and ports are accessible. You can sync or listen to iTunes while iPhone is in the book. Soft, chocolate brown suede lines the interior of the wallet.

BookBook features a handy ID window, making it easy to flash your license. The window has a convenient thumb slide for quick removal of your ID when needed. There are two slots for credit/debit cards and a vertical pocket for cash, receipts or business cards. BookBook conveniently puts your bank card next to your bank and finance apps.

Andrew Green, Creative Director at Twelve South, said “There are many iPhone cases out there in all shapes and sizes, but we couldn’t find the one we wanted. So we rolled up our sleeves and designed the ultimate case. A cool, pocket-sized book that serves as a wallet and iPhone case. It’s a phone book and checkbook rolled into one.”

Made with genuine leather, each BookBook is hand-distressed so no two are exactly alike. Since it looks just like a pocket-sized book, it’s an easy way to disguise your wallet and phone. The stylish design keeps you and your iPhone from looking like everyone else.

    Thanks for the info regarding this case.

    It looks perfect for what I was looking for in an iPhone 4 case. So perfect, in fact, that I have ordered one already and it should get here tomorrow!

      That’s awesome. I’m looking forward to getting the review unit and our comparing notes.
      If you look at the comments on the hotel lock post from yesterday you’ll see an interesting take on such a degree of convergence. Curious what your thoughts are on it…
