iPhone Wrist Strap

I read recently that the little wrist strap was added to the newest version of the iPod touch to make it easier/safer to use as a camera.  I think more people probably use an iPhone as a camera, so where's the optional wrist strap for them?  Photojojo has it, at least for the iPhone 4/4S [...]
