Twelvesouth introduces the SurfacePad, a luxury leather cover for your iPhone

Twelvesouth introduces the SurfacePad, a luxury leather cover for your iPhoneWell known high end Apple accessory manufacturer Twelvesouth has announced its latest accessory for the iPhone and it is something just that little bit different. Say hello to the “SurfacePad” which Twelvesouth is calling an ultra-slimluxury leather cover for the iPhone. Yep, it is not a case according to Twelvesouth, it’s a cover for those that like to keep their iPhone safe from life’s daily dangers while still allowing its beautiful design to shine through.

Made from luxury Napa leather, SurfacePad dresses up iPhone unlike any other cover. At less than 1/10th an inch thick and weighing less than one ounce, this thin leather jacket does not interfere with the buttons, ports or camera on iPhone. Since the cover wraps around and protects the front and back surfaces, the tell-tale profile of the iPhone remains on display. At a glance there’s never any doubt what phone you’ve chosen to run your world.

SurfacePad is thin, light and shows off your iPhone - but it also makes a design statement all its own. It adds a pop of color to your iPhone. It makes your phone distinctive and sophisticated in a sea of silly plastic. With its razor thin profile and supple touch, SurfacePad is the first cover worthy of your iPhone, and shares the same design sensibilities as well. Sleek, modern, minimal - both device and cover are cut from the same cloth

The SurfacePad for iPhone is available for the iPhone 4, 4s and 5 and comes in three different colors too. You can have it in Jet Black, Modern White or Red Pop. The SurfacePad also has a built in stand sewn into the back cover which lets you watch videos or even set your iPhone down in a position suitable for use as a bedside clock radio. If you fancy getting your hands on one of these rather innovative covers for your iPhone they are available right now from Twelvesouth and will cost you $34.99.

Twelvesouth introduces the SurfacePad, a luxury leather cover for your iPhone


That commercial was simply horrible and contained no type of substance towards the product.

All I kept asking while watching is show the got damn product. Show me the case. Fast moving video frames full of none sense.

I understand the "HIP" effect but damn. Go back to the drawing board that video is horrible

From the fine print on thr site,
Securely adheres to back of iPhone, leaving no residue when removed

I bought their stick-on cover for my Kindle Paperwhite. I like Twelvesouth but these adhesive type products are for the birds.

I actually have a Dodo case for my Nexus 7 that uses adhesive to hold the device and I'm quite impressed with it.

This forces you to flip the front cover to the back which means you immediately have to use both hands just to start using your phone. It takes away the ease of just picking up your phone and using it with one hand.

1) Worst commercial ever. I know nothing about the product after watching the commercial other than with their case on I can still pick my iphone up off a bookcase, slip it in my pocket, and hold it in my hand. 2) I had their BookBook cover and it was annoying as heck to keep the cover out of my way while texting.

Reading the description on their site, one gathers this product is for people with self-esteem issues, being in need to show off with their phone. No thanks.
