Inventive Metals Introduces Solid Aluminum iPhone Cases

With nearly 50 million iPhones sold to date, there are hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of  iPhone cases that have been created. However, we think the latest solid aluminum cases have raised the bar for safety and elegence combined.

Inventive Metals a US company recenntly announced a line of iPhone cases constructed from solid aluminum. These durable cases are being sold in six different powder-coated finishes with styles ranging from elegant to wacky; they are specifically designed to protect the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3G/GS models.

While inside the case, the iPhone is completely functional with easy access provided to the screen, all buttons, speaker, microphone, and headphone jack. Most importantly, the cases do not interfere with mobile phone reception.

Inventive Metal’s  product manager explains that the light aluminum case provide the iPhone with great drop protection; however, enclosing a phone in a metal jacket while maintaining its technical flexibility was  extremely challenging.

“Most of our competitors who have tried this really haven’t put enough engineering into the signal-loss problem. We’ve studied this extensively and have tested and refined many prototypes before we were satisfied that our cases would out-perform our competitors and provide a good user-experience to our customers. Our iPhone cases are unmatched in terms of durability and signal strength.”

Inventive Metal’s iPhone cases can be purchased online at inventive and cost approximately $69 each.
