The first samples of our new iPhone 5/5s Spike cases arrived yesterday and here are our first thoughts: they are awesome! We’re more than impressed with the quality of these parts and with the engineering abilities of our new manufacturer. We’ve been inspecting every detail of every part down to the 1/1000th of an inch and have found very few dimensions out of tolerance. Work has already begin on the tools to correct the ones that are before the final polishing and texturing is applied.
We received several combinations of different polycarbonate and TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) materials and think we’ve selected a perfect fusion of an extremely tough hard outer shell with an ultra-cushioning soft inner liner that will protect your iPhone from whatever you throw at it – or whatever you throw it at! In addition, the keyboard effortlessly snaps on and off the molded in hinge axle pin not only protecting it from breakage but also allowing for easy ‘hardware updates’ and multilingual support in the near future.
By the end of the month we’ll be receiving 100 sets of Spike in four different colors, Ice White, Pitch Black, InfraRed, and another that we’ll be keeping under wraps for now.
Some technical specifications of the new Spike:
We'll have more news later this month regarding both iPhone 4/4s and 5/5s models of Spike, so stay tuned!'
Best regards and Happy Holidays,
The Spike Team
