Case in point April 18, 2007

I think it’s an indication of the level of heat being generated by Apple‘s forthcoming iPhone that accessories are coming out this early even if the product is still essentially vaporware. Engadget and Akihabara News are reporting that phone cases are already appearing in Hong Kong, Singapore and other outlets in the region, third party accessories created based on published specs from the Apple site. It’s mind boggling that anyone would buy one even without actually owning a unit, other than with the express intention of getting an obvious conversation piece (as if the iPhone itself isn’t one on its own). I don’t think even the most dedicated fanboy can justify this purchase. Tech lunacy, if you ask me.
