Belch launches carbon-fiber iPhone case

updated 10:50 am EST, Fri February 29, 2008

Carbon-fiber iPhone case

Belch Co. has released its first case for the iPhone, what is also its first product for the modern generation of Apple products. The case is said to be the only one for the iPhone made out of aerospace-grade carbon fiber, giving it extra strength, while keeping its weight down to less than a third of an ounce. The inside is lined with neoprene, which prevents scraping and also acts as shock cushion.

The case is handmade to fit 4, 8 and 16GB phones, and offers access to buttons, the touchscreen, the Dock Connector and headphone jack, and finally the camera. Belch is selling its iPhone case for $80; a case for the MacBook Air is said to be coming soon.

    $80????

    Are they f*cking kidding? I'm not paying $80 for a damned case. Agent 18's ecosheild case is much better and way less expensive.

    i like it

    I have ordered a few things from belch before. a couple of money clips and an ipod nano case a while back... it wasn't the greatest customer service. but i pre-ordered an iphone case and it came in yesterday. They have very timely shipping and much better customer service with this last transaction. The iphone case, its freaking sweet. they did a much better job designing their iphone case than they did with their nano cases... hopefully they will make a new case for classic ipods... pretty please :)

    Amazing but over-acted

    I was amazed by the title, a carbon-fiber iPhone case. Are they crazy or overwhelmed by its product promise? A case even much strong and harder than iPhone itself. Judge the experience, i would say its average if not ugly. Probably only iPhone zealot would but it. For those like leather cases,check out http://www.sourcingmap.com/iphone-cases-c-983_1389.html
