No Strings Attached

Clockwise from top: Lubix UBHS-NC1, iSkin Cerulean F1 earphones, iSkin Cerulean TX Bluetooth transmitter (sold separately), and Lubix UBHS-LC1. Thanks to Bluetooth wireless technology, you no longer have to be tethered to your iPod or iPhone. Lubix’s UBHS-LC1 and UBHS-NC1 are Bluetooth headsets you can use with the iPhone, while iSkin’s Cerulean F1 works as either a Bluetooth iPhone phone headset or as Bluetooth headphones for an iPod equipped with a Bluetooth transmitter.

  You paid a whole lotta money for your iPhone, so why not invest $25 to $35 in a solid protective case for it? We’ve rounded up some of the first iPhone cases to hit the market.

For example, holsters such as the Elan Holster, Slim-Fit Case, and the HipCase won’t let you use the iPhone while it’s encased, but they do offer a means of protection. More iPhone cases are being released as you read this, so you can bet we’ll be taking a look at those too.
