The iPhone 5: thing of beauty, right? It's slim and pocket-friendly and just a marvel of engineering, yes?
Gravity: 24-7, right? Strikes without warning, yes? That's why you'll never catch me carrying a phone without a case, even if it means hiding some of its beauty and lessening its pocket-friendliness.
The question is, which case? You've got a million options, with prices ranging from around five bucks all the way up to 50 -- sometimes even higher.
If you want robust, colorful, popular protection for your phone, there's a deal to be had: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Ice Monkey has the iOttie Sprinkle iPhone 5 case for $14.99 shipped. It would cost you $29.95 if purchased directly from iOttie and $25 at Amazon.
The case features shock-absorbing thermoplastic polyurethane on the inside and a hard plastic shell on the outside. It's available in your choice of six colors, including not only basic white and black, but also mint (green), yellow, light blue, and magenta. They're all pretty snazzy, in my humble opinion.
