Having just splashed out on a new phone – a standard iPhone 4 – I am already wondering if I made a big mistake.
Time magazine recently came out with its list of Top Ten gadgets of the year and the iPhone 5 – which you can get from Carphone Warehouse – came out on top.
Not bad considering it only launched two months earlier, in September 2012.
A different shape to the 4 (but also quite annoyingly, with different leads), it also has new features that would help keep me up to date with work wherever I am.
As well as an improved network speed and a larger screen, the 5 camera can take way better pictures – including panoramic shots of 240 degrees.
All of which is well and good of course, but what about the real deal – the accessories.
Despite the fact the new phone is made from glass and aluminium, you are clearly going to need a case.
I had a look at some great designer cases here last year, but the iPhone 5 is a completely different shape.
And basically in a nutshell, the reason I want an iPhone 5 is because of this – the CalypsoCase by jewellery designer Lara Bohinc.
Handcrafted from Italian leather, the CalypsoCase is available in three colours – red, silver and black. Yum.
And given the current cold snap, I also love the idea of these Mujjo touchscreen gloves which makes it completely unnecessary to get your mitts out when you want to text, email or make a call. I love the black glitter or grey styles.
