Case-Mate's Titanium iPhone 4 Bumper Costs $300, Really?

Just when I thought iPhone 4 cases couldn't get any pricier, Case-Mate has announced a new premium metal version of their aluminum Jett bumper case that's reasonably priced at $49.99, called the Titanium. It should really be called the Titanium Jett. As the name implies, this premium metal bumper case for the iPhone 4 is entirely made out of a solid piece of titanium slab. So what else is new you say? Absolutely nothing. Case-Mate will charge you a whopping $300 for the titanium version of their aluminum Jett bumper case compatible with both the AT&T and Verizon iPhone 4. Why should Case-Mate charge such a premium when there are bumper cases that are also made entirely out of titanium and cost considerably less. Titanium may be more expensive than aluminum, however I don't think you will notice any difference except for more weight added to your iPhone 4. $300 is getting ridiculous for an iPhone 4 bumper.

Those of you who enjoy such expensive metals will be glad to know that the Case-Mate Titanium bumper case will be available to order on June 27. Meanwhile, check out the overview and installation videos on the Titanium after the jump!
