Putting everything you got into one place sure is convenient, what could possibly go wrong? Be sure to head over past the break for the full rundown!
First up on our list is the BookBook wallet case made by Twelve South. This is one of the more unique iPhone wallet cases around, and we thought it was mostly full of win when we last reviewed it. Twelve South's BookBook is handmade using genuine leather, looks like a vintage book from the outside and is designed to work as a flip folio style case without having to remove the iPhone out of its custom cradle.
The BookBook's velvety soft interior can store up to three cards, includes a convenient clear ID window and a hidden side loading pocket for stashing some of your cash. The BookBook is designed to look like a vintage book as much as possible, so there is no cutout for the back facing camera, unfortunately. Instead, a quick pull tab lets you quickly pull the iPhone half way when you want to take photos. The BookBook offers access to all ports and buttons at all times. Price $59.99.
Hard Graft's wallet cases are perhaps one of the more beautifully, well put together cases for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. But they're also the most expensive out the bunch. The Phone Fold Wallet combines uber premium wool felt and vegetable tanned Italian leather, and is handmade in Germany. Hard Graft's Phone Fold Wallet folds open and can store up to 8 cards and cash with a pouch style slot designed to protect your iPhone with a felt lined interior. Unlike the BookBook wallet case, the Phone Fold Wallet is simply a pouch for your iPhone and does not offer direct access to ports or touchscreen accessibility. The Phone Fold Wallet is available in gray and tan leather. Price $125.
