Twelve South has today unveiled a new classic black version of its hugely popular BookBook case for iPhone and iPhone 4S. The BookBook case was first made available back in 2011 and was a superb case that was also a fully functioning wallet. If you were looking for a converged case and wallet then you couldn’t do much better than this.
One of the biggest criticisms aimed at the BookBook case was the lack of camera hole in the back of the case; Twelve South has taken these comments into account. Unfortunately, instead of giving us a cutout for the camera we find a tab that you need to pull to raise the iPhone 4 or 4S a quarter inch out of the case. This is still a clumsy way of taking pictures and one that will irritate a lot of buyers. The BookBook case is available for the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S in Classic Black or the previously available vintage brown color too. If you fancy picking one of these up, Twelve South has them available for immediate shipping for $59.99.
Could you see yourself using a case like this? I personally like the look of it and think it looks extremely well made too but I am not sure how practical it would be in daily use. The strange pull tab to raise the iPhone out of the case to take a picture would drive me mad; what about you?
