Its amazing that most of people like Type 01 silver. I personally like 02 red and purple.. maybe people will say I have bad taste..:-)
From http://apple-iphone-accessories.blogspot.com/2010/10/abee-aluminium-jacker-for-iphone-4.html When we first spotted Abee's aluminium jacket for iPhone 4, it's was a half love it and half hate it experience. We love it because of the material used to manufacture the aluminium cool iPhone 4 case. We hate it because it is over design - from our perspective of appreciating product design! Abee, the Yokohama based company is very best to accommodate customer's demands with their strength on product development. We have to study the design concept behind their aluminium jacket in order to appreciate it properly! If you haven’t noticed, an increasing number of cool iPhone 4 cases that made by aluminium have been entering the market lately. Abee Corporation entry the iPhone accessories market by introducing the alumimium jacket is sure an eagerly desirous to achieve a strong stand in the competitive market place. Abee's product development team has come out with the ultra thin Type 01 - their very first all aluminium cool iphone 4 case. With this jacket on, you are surely provide a stunning outer wear to the mighty iPhone 4. By that time, someone next to you is giving you a second look so that he/her can see your aluminium cool iPhone 4 case clearly. However, don't you agree that the volume control section can be a talking point over the internet? (Images source: abee.co.jp) Abee's Type 01 aluminium iPhone case is available in 6 different colors. We're expecting positive response to the metal colours range because metal lovers should prefer them over blue, red and purple (Image source: abee.co.jp) Following is Abee's Type 02 aluminium jacket for iPhone 4. Be patient if you you're like all metal cool iPhone 4 cases. We're liking to Type 02 design because of it clean design but we are put it to reserve due to the 4 rounded corner. Any comment? (Images source: abee.co.jp) Colour: 6 design for Type 01 Available: iPhone 4 How much: ￥7980 - ￥8180 (about US$100) for Type 01. Type 02 N/A. Our score: 9/10 Final say: Like it or hate it. What you say? This cool iPhone 4 case or jacket is not easily well accept by some iPhone 4 users. To us, Type 02 is look cool but we're saying no to the 4 protruding round corners. Not really pocket friendly!
This case is a real killer. I didn't expect that it is actually more cool than it looks in the picture!
Today, I made a facebook page for POCOMARU http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Pocomaru/113093098767080 and I am collecting fans for it.
I am glad that there are people outside who like Aluminum Jacket Type case as I do. Today I receive a couple of emails asking for this product. Yes, they are pricy, but definitely much lower than their price in Japan already.(around 85$ in Japan): http://en.item.rakuten.com/keitai/306-395796/ Besides, It is free shipping here. I believe in high quality and fashion. Everything I am going to sell will be genuine and of course with high quality. So what else can I say, you may still not like Aluminum Jacket type, but POCOMARU is the first supplier of this case in USA. btw, I keep using "I" instead of "us"in my blogs just for writing convenience. We are actually a small group of people, supporting each other, and commited to share our unique collections.
