Just got a quote from them: $140 for carbon fiber...Made By Infinity Carbon
Looks good but is toooooo expensive, at least for me isn't worth it
Post up some pics..... I need to see it.
Wasn't there a guy on here selling cases just like those? If I remember right he had a few different colors as well as being about 80 bucks cheaper.
it may not scratch, but the screen will likely still shatter
Run over it with your car, I want to see if I should buy it.
It can still shatter, but it takes a good deal of pressure to shatter it. And when it does...its tons of tiny pieces...
looks too tacky for my taste :[
naked is the best
Real Carbon fiber is sooooo over-priced in the U.S. It's less than half the price in the U.K.. That's been my experience with motorcycle parts anyway.
Well ... duh! LOL
CF is the shizzz.. I have 5 CF bikes, rings I am a CF junkie. Stuff is strong enough - great strength to weight ratio - you are not going to damage it. They use it on the Shuttle, cars, bikes, planes... no worries on it shattering.
anyone got the details to the cheaper model?
this would be cool if they did a 12k weave
i'm big into tuners...CF is sexy if its done right...
$140 is definitely pricey...I might have to talk to my buddy who forms CF on a daily basis and see if he can't make some that are a little cheaper...
I couldn't agree with you more...
would be TITS to see color CF as well...
here you go.. just $13 shipped
Carbon Fiber Snap-On Protector Case Faceplate for Motorola Droid A855 - WE35292FP2MOTA855-31 - Buy.com
Not to hijack, but can anyone recommend a cover that has a screen protector with it? I hate paying 20 for cover and another 13 for sticky screen covers.
I can get an another phone for that price.
I have to wonder why you would choose Carbon Fiber of all materials for a cell phone case that's supposed to protect the device from falls and other shock:
"Carbon fiber is very strong when stretched or bent, but weak when compressed or exposed to high shock" (Wikipedia)
Why are you planning on stretching or bending your cell phone case?
Though I suspect it's all for the "sexiness" factor of carbon ______. That's all you hear about nowadays. Carbon fiber, carbon nanotubes, it never ends...
because in this usage, it will be just fine. trust me. if you can crash a bike going 30+ MPH and not damage it, dropping your phone with a CF case will be just fine.
your taking those quotes out of proper context.
one of the benefits of CF, in bikes for example, is it dampens shock. So the "high shock" you quote here is not relative to a dropped phone case.. it would be relative to maybe a thrown against the concrete phone case.
Hmm, alright, I see. Thanks for clearing that up to me. There just wasn't any real context in that paragraph I read on Wikipedia. Teaches me to read only the introduction to the Wiki page before I post something about it, I guess.
anyone can post on Wiki.. and post anything they want really
Real carbon fiber is not cheap. I would bet anything this is just a CF print. Not real CF.
no, ya think?
BUT.... if they can crank out in volume, and it comes out of Asia, where most all of the CF bike parts come out of, you would be surprised how cheap they can make them.. way cheaper than the OP's original post price.. way cheaper. the real big cost is often the mold.
Well yeah, but it's generally cleared up so quickly because of changelogs that the chances that you loaded up the page before someone changed whatever vandalism someone else posted is incredibly small. One time I DID come across a page with vandalism on it and I refreshed it five minutes later and it was gone.
I would think so too, but look at the price of the pre-made phone cases. They aren't as comparatively cheap as I would have expected.
