Recently, there are reports of a genius phone by Will.i.am. It is supposedly to be casing for iPhone which transform it into a 14-MegaPixel camera with changeable lens. It was also featured in Will.i.am and Britney Spears latest music video, “Scream & Shout” recently. What a great way to promote a up-and-coming product.
In the MV, there are several seconds where these phone covers appear. Notice the image sensor in the picture below. Super large sensor, IMO, and if you notice, there are electronic points for the lens. That means it might have some optical zoom function.
Here is the back view. Notice that it is an iPhone 5. This might be the V.5 model.
That is not all. Here is another one with different color.
And here is the best part. In this big casing, it also houses a keyboard. This might be the C.5 model.
In the MV, there is a split second where it shows another casing. Not sure if it will materialize, it looks like a waterproof casing with a iPhone 4 or 4s in it.
Based on the report, the casings are not cheap. From Ubergizmo,
The minimum price is 199$ for the C.4 version but there is also a “vintage” version that will go for 299$, both are for the iPhone 4/4S. The other two are said to be called C.5 and the V.5 and their name suggest that they will be iPhone 5 accessories…
Will you buy them? BTW, here is the Music Video of “Scream & Shout”.
