The Want | Royal RepubliQ Vintage Phone Pocket

The Want | Royal RepubliQ Vintage Phone Pocket

Royal RepubliQ urges us to ditch the phone cases and opt for a phone pocket instead. Their version’s pretty legit as it comes in a cognac finish leather shell that’s been really broken in and also features a leather neck strap. The Copenhagen brand’s known for their leather product and we think this is a great item to pick up if you want to see what they’re all about at a pretty affordable cost.

I’m always looking for creative ways to carry my iPhone and this leather case is as good as it gets. It’s made in a rugged calf leather and padded on the inside for protection. No iPhone? Well, it’s good for other things as well like loose change or your wallet and keys.

If you’re not down with the dozens of iPhone cases out on the market right now, check out the iPhone pocket from Sandqvist. It’s meant to be tossed over your neck and looks strikingly like those iconic Leica cases, no? No? Oh. Well, either way, it looks cool and the thick, brown leather helps make this case stand out. Though it’s marketed for iPhone users, it can fit any mobile phone up to 120 x 63 x 14 mm.

Leaked: The 4th Gen iPhone

Gizmodo: 4th Generation iPhone Leaked [Video]

We’re not big on speculation but when it comes to the iPhone, we’re all ears. Seriously. So some crazy events have taken place in the past few weeks, all of which have begun to surface. An Apple engineer left a 4th generation iPhone prototype at a bar, which was picked up by some guy that gave Gawker media (owners of Gizmodo) the opportunity to give it an examination, for monetary fee of course. If this really is the next gen iPhone, then I’m sold. It’s bringing a new front-facing camera as well as a beefed-up back camera and a larger battery. The screen’s a bit smaller but the resolution’s been hiked up.

There’s probably much more that we haven’t seen yet, but rest assured, when the time is right, Steve will give us the full details. Until then, peep the video from Gizmodo after the jump. 

iPhone OS 4.0 Delivers Multitasking, iBooks and App-Switching

Apple iPhone OS 4.0 [Multitasking, Unified Inbox, iBooks]

For anyone that missed today’s major unveiling of the Apple iPhone’s 4.0 OS, we’ve got a quick breakdown. Some key enhancements to look forward to include the highly anticipated multitasking feature. The masses have been asking for it and now Steven Jobs and Co. will deliver. You’ll be able to run multiple apps at the same time, like using Skype to make a call and getting directions from TomTom’s GPS navigation app. You can run other apps like Pandora and check your email, without having to worry about the song going on pause. This feature will only be limited to the iPhone 3GS, while the 3G and Edge versions will be left out in the cold. Sucks for those guys. 

Curated by Arkitip: Evan Hecox for Incase

Curated by Arkitip: Evan Hecox for Incase [iPhone + MacBook Cases]

With the continuation of Curated by Arkitip, artist and designer Evan Hecox displays his fascination with the urban landscape on Incase products, presented as the sixth installment of the well-received collaborative effort. “Available today, the Evan Hecox series has been issued in three limited editions: London, New York and Tokyo. As the project’s first artist to present a series of products, Hecox brings to life nontraditional depictions of the famed cities and their associated national emblems on our signature MacBook Sleeve and iPhone Slider Case. Hecox filters the mundane into captivating illustrations of London, New York and Tokyo seemingly filled with narratives beyond the images themselves, and applies them to MacBook Sleeves. The Hecox Slider Cases complement the three Sleeves, bearing instantly recognizable national symbols of the three cities. Hecox re-imagined the symbols through his stylistic approach, resulting in artistic interpretations that are both familiar and new.”

All products from Hecox for Curated by Arkitip are available now at Arkitip, Incase, better boutiques and Apple Store locations worldwide.
