Now you can have your case and eat it. The Lifeproof iPhone 4 case gives you the protection you want without sacrificing the style. Now all you need is an iPhone 4 or 4S to put in it.

The launch of the iPhone 4 generation of smartphone has spawned a huge after-market of accessories worth millions every year. And with phone cases amongst the most popular you would think that the ideal case was easy to find. Not necessarily so – if you want to protect your valuable Apple gadget (who doesn´t?) the choice of chunky cases that can do the job will mean your sleek, stylish iPhone now resembles an iBrick.

Or of course you could go for a sleek and stylish case instead, and get enough protection to cover a gust of wind blowing some dust onto your pride and joy.

But what if you want the protection, but don´t want to turn your phone into an 80s throwback replica?

Well, Lifeproof think they have the answer with the Lifeproof iPhone 4 Case. Tested to military specifications by the same people who were behind black-box flight recorders the case will protect your iPhone from shocks, drops of up to 2m, dirt and splashes. Unbelievably, it´s even waterproof to 2m!

And all this protection will add a mere 1.3mm to your still stylish iPhone. Double coated optical glass protects the camera lens, ensuring protection and yet still retaining the crystal clear photography. The delicate touchscreen is covered with a tough and very thin film to retain the functionality – vital for this type of phone.

But we´re not finished yet, the Lifeproof iPhone 4 Case also includes a miniature subwoofer built into the back cover – great to add depth to your tunes. The case also comes with a screw in waterproof headphone lead, though you´re not going to want to plug in your standard ear-pieces and go swimming…

Available in Black, White, Pink and Purple there is sure to be a colour to suit. And for you outdoor types there´s a bike mount accessory available separately that clips to the handlebars and holds your precious gadget securely on those cross-country treks. Wowsers!

Note for Spanish buyers only – if you wish to purchase both the Lifeproof case and the bike mount it´s actually cheaper on the postage to do them separately as two purchases! Sounds mad I know but two small packages are cheaper than one large in this case by around 10E! (sorry no pun intended…). You´ll find the bike mount under the “Don´t Forget Accessories!” link to the right of the picture on the page displayed after you click either of the Buy buttons on this page. Thanks!
