CES 2013: Boys like lines, girls like foliage, we all like iPhone cases

For the life of me, I don’t get why companies choose to show their iDevice cases at CES instead of at Macworld | iWorld where the, you know, iDevice users are. But it is what it is, and in this instance it’s Case Scenario announcing their printed iPhone 5 collection featuring Boy, Girl and Concept cases at CES 2013.

Created for style conscious users who wants their iPhone to match the season, their mood or their outfit, the printed iPhone 5 collection strengthens Case Scenario’s brand goal—to create a mobile case as a fashion accessory inspired by current style trends.

The Case Scenario Boy Collection features four tailored shirt patterns picked from some of the trendiest menswear collections (but not from my closet, or they’d all be hockey jerseys and Shonen Knife tour shirts). The cases will be available in a pinstripe, vertical stripe, black/red or black/white checkered patterns.

Case Scenario Boy

The Girl Collection features stylish colors and flowered prints that’ll match the must-have designs of 2013.

Case Scenario Girl

The Concept Collection by Case Scenario will be a bit more organic, changing from season to season to feature the current design trends. The first set is a rather cool looking marble print available in black or white.

The Case Scenario iPhone 5 Boy, Girl and Concept collections will be available Spring 2013.

    You’re kidding, right? You’re not really that dim, are you?

    150,000 potential customers vs 15,000. Potentially selling 10,000+ units to a corporate buyer from Best Buy, Target, etc vs selling single units to nerds from the Bay area. An area set up specifically for your product line. Dealing with the CEA organization vs dealing with IDG. CES/Las Vegas is *much* cheaper than Macworld/San Francisco in every way that matters to a vendor. The world tech media eyeballs vs schmucks from

    Seems pretty cut and dried.

    Schmucks? Come on, Shawn, what if my mom reads this?

    I know the CES numbers. TechnologyTell is well represented there this week, courtesy of GadgeTell, GamerTell, etc., and, of course, the good folks at our parent company, NAPCO. Just trying to give Macworld some love, misguided as it may be.

    “giving Macworld some love” is different from professing your ignorance as to how the world works.

    And maybe Macworld wouldn’t be the fustercluck it is if the Mac Media stopped “giving it love” and started treating it objectively. There’s a reason why 500 vendors are showing at iLounge’s CES Pavilion (three times the size of Expo) and not at Macworld Expo. There’s a reason why there will be three times as many people going through the iLounge Pavilion as will attend Macworld Expo. There’s a reason why that pavilion is physically 2.5 times bigger than the Expo Show floor.

      All good points (well…except for the ignorant part). And if we didn’t have so many reps from TechnologyTell at CES, I’d be there this week, too. But we’ve got the writers to cover both shows, so we do, and will, as long as both have items of interest to our readers.

    “All good points (well…except for the ignorant part)”

    Sadly, that was the crux of my post but you’re conveniently ignoring that to pimp your “many reps from TechnologyTell”. That’s fine – it’s your web site – but it’s shame you have to do it and ignore what I’m saying.

    So I’ll leave you to it. Have a good weekend.

      Hey, you too, Shawn.
