Musubo has been nice enough to send us out some of their hottest iPhone cases available, to review for all you Guru heads. Let’s kick off this review with our personal favorite the Eden. This case is made up of a white/black shiny polycarbonate frame and a soft touch silicone insert for the back, that comes in green, orange, light blue, pink, black, yellow, purple or white.
At first glance the case is an eye catcher because of the bright colors and it being glossy. The iPhone clips in the case very tightly and is not very hard to clip down in. The glossy frame that wraps the sides can be slick to hold on to, but the soft silicone insert around back helps for some grip. The phone was a little challenging to get back out of the case, it is not a case you would want to take off every day. The frame around back wraps around at an angle and does make the case feel a little bulky, but would defiantly help with impact if you dropped your phone. The only negative view is, the coverage on the front and sides is minimal. If you are bad about dropping your phone I don’t know that I would recommend this case for that reason alone.
Another positive is, with the sides not being fully covered, you have no issues with access to the ports and buttons on the phone. This case really was a pleasure to use, and even though it is a little bulky it made the iPhone very comfortable to use. For $34.99 it is a very attractive and nice case, that can hold it’s own against some of the top name brand cases.
Next up is the Sneaker. The Sneaker was obviously inspired by the old school, never old, Converse All Star Shoe. This case is a tough rubber, bumper style case with a back insert. It slides over the phone very snug but, not so snug that it is hard to remove, and not as loose as silicone cases. This case provides excellent coverage wrapped around the front, sides and back. No need to worry if you drop your phone in this case. It does leave the screen open, but coverage is so that it shouldn’t get hit.
We got the black and white versions but other colors are available. There is an option for a white bumper and green, brown, red, yellow, pink, light blue, lime green and purple, inserts. You will either love the looks or hate the looks of this case. Either way, it is no doubt a conversation piece and gives you great coverage with easy on/off access for $34.99.
Lastly we have the Sexy. This was our least favorite of the 3 cases and not because of the appearance. It is no doubt a sexy looking case but it is basically your everyday, standard wrap around, soft silicone case. They do however provide great drop protection. We have not been a fan of this style case, mainly because they come off too easy and allow dust to get under the case. Then, possibly rub scratches on your phone. This isn’t an assumption either, we have actually had this happen.
The good thing about this case is the fact that it is available in several different colors, light blue, blue, black, green, magenta, red, rose pink, white, and purple. The case is cheaper than the others at $24.99 and if you are in the market for a silicone case, this should be one of your top choices because it does live up to it’s name, Sexy.
One last thing we really thought was cool about the Musubo cases, they all come with adjustable stands. The stands are flat like a credit card and the bend to allow for different viewing angles to prop your phone up. They are quite good if you want to set your phone up for an alarm clock, or use it to watch movies. It would sway me to actually buy these cases over another.
So there you have it, Musubo has some very cool cases and there are several more options to choose from on their site. They are very affordable and their quality standard is high. So go ahead and get on over to Musubo.com and pick you one out for yourself.
Musubo Case Picturesshow
Today, we saw several leaked images of what appear to be Apple’s next iPhone. It could just be a prototype, or we are actually looking at pictures of body casings that are already pre-production models. The body appears to be a unibody design with metal wrapping around the back, and the device overall looks taller than the current iPhone 4/4S. That almost puts the rumors
This has been a tough year for T-Mobile, bleeding customers because of the possible merger with AT&T this year, not having the iPhone, and the lack of LTE, when compared to the other carriers. Recently, they announced that they are building a LTE network to compete with the other carriers, which is a big part of the rebuild.
After losing almost 1000 employees in March due to cut backs, another warning memo was issued to employees today. With their new structure, there will be some difficult decisions. They will be notifying some employees this week that they will be laid off in this second round of layoffs. CEO Phillip Humm says that additional details on the matter will come this following week. Hopefully T-Mobile can refocus and get back on track this year for a solid 2013 year, allowing them to get back in the competition strongly.

It has been up in the air on where T-Mobile was headed after the merger with AT&T was denied. They claimed they still have a good 4G network, but everyone knows that LTE is the wave of the future in wireless technology. Today, T-Mobile has announced they are upgrading to a 4 billion dollar LTE network.
With agreements of Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks, they will be installing new equipment in 37,000 of T-Mobiles current 4G towers. T-Mobile finally secured the AWS spectrum that they ended up with in the AT&T fallout and this will help allow them to get their LTE up and running in 75% of the top 25 markets.
The rollout is going to start later this year and is planned to be fully nationwide in 2013. It is very good to know that T-Mobile is not laying down and giving up. After Sprint has announced LTE coming for their network, it only makes sense for T-Mobile to head down the same road to stay competitive with the other carriers to date.
Target officially announced today, they will no longer carry any Amazon branded Kindle products, starting in the spring of 2012. Target says they evaluate their products to deliver the best quality, and prices for their customers. Also adding, they will still carry other assorted e-readers for purchase, including the Nook.
Who knows what the real issue here is, maybe they don’t like Amazon competing with them in the retail space, or they don’t agree on pricing of the product. Either way, hopefully more information about this comes out in the future. You know, you can always buy an iPad at Target.
