The SurfacePad case for iPhone from Twelve South reminds me of the Flip Cover Case for the Samsung Galaxy S3 phones. The SurfacePad is made of “luxury Napa leather”, and it glues to the back of your iPhone with a removable, repositionable adhesive. As you can see from the image, you can fold the cover into a horizontal stand. The front cover protects the screen while the iPhone is in your pocket or bag. All the controls and connectors are left open and accessible by the SurfacePad. All the photos seem to show the case closed over the iPhone’s screen or open like a book, so I’m not sure how it folds back to allow you to hold the iPhone to your ear. It’s available for the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4/4S in Jet Black, Modern White, or Red Pop for $34.99.
