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!

CalypsoCase Fashions New Leather & Titanium iPhone 4 Cases

It's been a while since we've stumbled upon some really awesome cases for the iPhone 4. I'm glad CalypsoCase has created new unique looking sleeve cases that are carefully crafted using multiple materials such as fine Italian leather and a strong U shaped titanium inner closure band for ultimate protection, and optional silver, black silver, gold or platinum metals. Each CalypsoCase sleeve case is lined with a specially designed fabric that prevents your phone from accidentally sliding out. CalypsoCase is currently seeking backing pledges to get things started. $70 will get you a special backer's only edition of a CalypsoCase which will later retail for $129.

CalypsoCase took a refreshing approach in starting up their new brand by creating their unique cases for various phones like the iPhone 4 - 3G/S, BlackBerry (Torch, Curve, Bold, Tour), HTC (Sensation, Incredible S, Desire HD, Desire S), Samsung (Nexus S, Galaxy S, Omnia II).
