iPhone 5 and so what? Accessorize it!

Yep, I finally place my iPhone 5 order this morning, I am just about to ditch my beloved Android to the hype of the iPhone after they are about to release their 7th Apple phone.
I hope it will help me in my day to day real estate in Carlsbad, Encinitas, Del Mar and other neighborhood in our greater San Diego market.
I was only 2 sd inline thinking I would be way on the back of the line showing up late to take a pick at the line at Best Buy this morning in Oceanside, I was just in luck!
The best part of this story is that speaking to the people in line with me (you know me, I love chatting with people), I just met a new home buyer client!
Why not having fun and working at the same time, this is what I call multitasking and super efficient use of my time!

So now let's have some fun and drool over some new cases about to be released while we are all waiting for the launch of our new digital companion on September 21st...


The Week in iPhone Cases: Take 5, take 2




Thanks to Wednesday’s reveal of the new iPhone 5, the onslaught of iPhone 5 case announcements continues. Which means that this week, we’ve got twodoses of our weekly roundup of the latest and greatest protective accessories. (You can see the first here.) Yes, this means you can shop for a new case before your new phone even arrives! And if you're not quite ready to upgrade, we've also got some new cases for your your trusty iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.

Acase: Even though the company's website hasn't yet been updated to reflect the new products, Acase has announced two new cases for Apple's latest handset. The Citta (iPhone 5; $17) is an ultra-thin, snap-on case that features a unique interlocking-diamond-textured back for visual depth and added grip; and the SuperLeggera Pro (iPhone 5; $20), which combines a tough polycarbonate exterior with a soft silicone interior to protect your brand-new handset from bumps and scratches, and even includes flexible covers that help protect the headphone jack and Lighting-connector ports from dust and humidity.

Dynaflo's Liquid-Armor
Dynaflo's Liquid-Armor

Dynaflo: If you, like me, think that the iPhone's oleophobic screen coating seems to be completely unafraid of your skin oils, you have probably tried to apply a screen protector, and had to contend with bubbles, dust particles, and all sorts of little annoyances that make these convenient accessories somewhat impractical. Dynaflo's Liquid-Armor (all iPhone models; $25) promises to make all these problems go away for good by reducing the process of applying a screen protector to nothing more than… rubbing it on. The Liquid-Armor comes in a bottle and can be sprayed directly onto a special cloth that is then simply rubbed against your screen, providing protection from fingerprints, scratches, and dust from up to six months.
Hex's Supra Core

It comes in black or white, and features all the appropriate cutouts to make sure you that you maintain unhindered access to your iPhone's ports and cameras at all time.
