iPhone and iPad Cases

Every morning, you get up and get on your iPhone or iPad to check Shirt.Woot. But doesn't that seem a little unfair? Your poor phone or tablet is stuck there, staring at all those dope shirt designs, and what does it get for its trouble? NOTHING! Until now! Check it: we got iPhone and iPad covers!

Is it bad that I'm contemplating these even though I don't have an iPhone or iPad, and probably won't because I spent all my discretionary income on too many shirts?

Just wondering ...

AND THERE'S EVEN PICTURES WITHOUT OUR ASKING, HOLY CRAP.

Now, if only I had something other than an iPod Classic and Kindle Fire HD. Ah, well.

Potentially the first side sale without an AA/Anvil dissertation?

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

Well instead perhaps we'll get a dissertation on the evils/wonders of istuff/non-istuff. I personally have no ianything so my little non-istuff phone is still feeling left out.

... and on AA! And if not, can I send that 9-shirt pile of "random" baby blue blanks I got last year back to HQ so they can print on them?

I would buy a case, but out of principle I won't. Giving FOUR designs to choose from "made" by one couple isn't very fair to the other more valuable designers on this site.

that was fun while it lasted!

If you haven't realized, they haven't been together for years already - and it's not favoritism to any artists, but rather, favoritism by the customers. These are all best selling designs of shirt.woot.

Also, Woot's most valuable artist has contributed over $4 million in revenue, so by that context, should more of his designs be featured here instead? That won't be fair to the other top sellers, however ...

On the phone cases, the design colors look faded and dull. Is that from the camera or should we expect a not as sharp image from the way the images are printed?

Come on guys, woot finally tries to put designs on cases and everybody is complaining about it! How about before we complain we try to thank them for what they did.

Wooters complaining about everything is like a Woot tradition ... and with everything else changing, seeing at least one thing remaining about "the way Woot was" is kind of comforting.

Not when it involves continuing to give either of those two money. That is something that will ALWAYS leave a bad taste.

Shiny chibi and derivative pop culture rips are still popular around here unfortunately, but at least we've got some more respectable artists profiting from it now.

More ijunk. This would be an awesome sale if it supported more than one crappy company. Any interested wooter has had ample opportunities to get cases for their iProduct, but never any love for the other 60+ percent of smartphone users.

The big reason is that the Android platform is spread out among hundreds and hundred of devices, which makes it much harder to market to any one particular customer base.

As an example, how many variants of Samsung Galaxy phones are out there? A search on GSMArena yielded 134 models that are current - and that's just from one brand.

It's a very fragmented market, which then lends to 3rd party companies to NOT produce products for because there's a lesser user base per model. Thus, whomever Woot is ordering these from most likely will NOT have case blanks for other models.

BTW, @bluetuba, my reference was in regards to Wooters complaining, not to anyone's actions from the past.

That's mostly because every color and internal CPU/memory/radio band configuration is considered a different "model." In reality there are dramatically fewer differences in the form factor.

Sad to see the iPad case designs I like are all in portrait mode. Which means anyone seeing the design while my iPad is propped up for viewing will see it sideways. I can't be the only one whose iPad is usually in landscape mode, can I?

... but there are differences, nonetheless. Divide it in half, divide it in fourths, it doesn't matter - the point is that there are so many different models. Look at the S4 - one model name, but there's the regular, mini, active, and zoom, and they all have different dimensions.

Apple's market share is achieved with just a handful of devices, meaning there's a very large user base of each device.

Android's market share is achieved with many different devices. Together, they're larger, but per device, it's a much smaller market.

So if you're custom making accessories, which market do you target - the very very large one, or the hundreds of smaller ones?

FWIW, my tablet is a BlackBerry PlayBook and my phone runs WP8. Accessories? Feel free to laugh.

Oh, well then I agree, people can complain and argue all they want IMO it's the interwebs way. All the silence is un-wooty

I absolutely love the cases! I'm so excited that there is potential for more. Unfortunately I can't get one because I use an iPad mini/ iPod touch,but I'm definitely excited about this!

I think they should look into making stickers so people who don't have Apple devices can still enjoy the awesome Woot designs.

Came to ask the same question. Music is Life and the unstealthiest ninja cases (both designs) look pretty faded. I'm hoping they're just terrible pictures (the ipad versions look ok), but it is making me hesitate.

Quick, someone check my spelling and grammar for me.

I wish you had them for the iPad mini or regular Kindle. I don't have a smart phone either. Sigh.
