Now that the iPhone 5 is finally a reality. Accessory makers are announcing cases for the handset. Seidio is the first. You can preorder iPhone 5 cases with them.
Looks like they are ready to go. We’re sure they are thrilled as the cases this time match up to the iPhone. (If anyone remembers last year, there were several cases put on the market for an iPhone design that never happened)
Here’s the press release:
HOUSTON- September 12, 2012- Seidio, a leading manufacturer of premium mobile technology accessories, announces its line of signature cases and a screen guard for the newly released Apple iPhone 5. These items are available for preorder now.
“The iPhone 5 is sure to shake up the mobile industry as this phone’s predecessors have been best-sellers since its 2007 debut. So, we [Seidio] realize the importance of the perfect accessory to complement such an iconic phone,” says David Chang, CEO of Seidio. “We’re thrilled to release our accessories, and we even have a lot more exciting iPhone 5 products in the pipeline.”
Seidio’s SURFACE and ACTIVE cases are available with or without a kickstand. The metal kickstand is designed to prop up the iPhone 5 in an easy, comfortable multimedia viewing position. Leaving your hands-free, the user can multi-task while watching videos or slideshows. This feature truly separates Seidio cases from other cases currently on the market. The CONVERT Combo is also available for the iPhone 5 for top-notch protection and convertible 2-in-1 case design.
Protecting the screen of the new iPhone 5 is critical, and Seidio is offering its Ultimate Screen Guard to consumers. It’s designed from the highest quality materials to specifically fit the device, and safeguard the screen in most conditions. It will retail for $9.95
