Smartphone cases

It doesn't seem that long ago that phones weren't that smart. Now people seem disappointed if a new phone doesn't come with Internet, email and turn-by-turn directions.

According to Boy Genius Report, smartphones now account for 39 percent of U.S. marketshare. As that number grows each year, so do their physical size.

For a long time, my standard cell phone case (which measures 4.5" tall x 3" wide) fit most phones on the market, including the BlackBerry Curve (although snugly).

To adapt to changing times, I am now designing a larger cell phone case to accommodate the iPhone 3G and 3GS (4.5" x 2.4" x 0.48" inches), the Motorola Droid (4.55" x 2.35" x 0.55") and all BlackBerrys. My redesigned case measures 5.25" tall x 3.5" wide and may include additional features, such as a velcro flap, a pocket and/or a zipper.

No, there is not an app(lique) for that. But I take custom orders.
