calling out all Angry Birds fans. not sure if you’re a fan? here’s an indicative tell-tale sign: if you are crazy enough to get the Angry Birds costume for Halloween, then you’re a fan. nah… in any case, Gear4 rolls out the Angry Birds themed cases for both iPhone 4 and iPod Touch (4th Gen).
there are three designs for you to chose from, namely, the red bird, yellow bird and pig king. perhaps, Gear4 figured that the Angry Birds fan base is huge enough to justify for its own ‘brand’ of cover, and even if there wasn’t, these cute looking, brightly hued cases might even attract general non-fans.
the cases, made out of hard plastic, are touted to be “super slim design” and snaps on to your iPhone 4 and iPod Touch and as usual, you will have access to all the iPhone’s (and iPod Touch) ports and buttons. strange that an angry bird can be so adorable. angrily cute or cute anger?
