American manufacturer ego & company, which specialises in Apple product accessories, has launched a special case for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S called the ego Hybrid series. Apart from protecting the phone, it serves another purpose: the casing features a removable USB flashdrive. This should be the ideal solution for iPhone users that want to take their photos, videos, music and documents with them, without having to sacrifice all of the phone's storage capacity.
The case will be available in seven colours: gray, blue, pink, yellow, green, red and black. The matching memory sticks are available in the same colours, apart from gray. Unfortunately, the 4 GB sticks are only available in blue or pink, the 8 GB models in yellow or green and the 16 GB sticks in black or red. If a user for instance wishes to create a completely blue case, he'd be limited to the 4 GB model, and so on. Naturally, the USB-sticks are compatible with all cases, meaning a blue casing can be combined with a red 16 GB drive.
The chassis are available through ego & company's website and have recommended pricetags of $34.95 (£22), $39.95 (£26) and $49.95 (£32) for respectively the 4, 8 and 16 GB versions.
