How do we put this gently? It’s come to our attention that maybe – just maybe – your iPhone doesn’t sparkle enough. And, to be frank, it could use more Hello Kitty. Luckily, you can fix both these problems with the Hello Kitty Mirror iPhone Case. Made from Swarovski crystals, this adorable iPhone case also opens up to become a convenient hand mirror. Too bad you can’t use it to see how cute you look talking on your new, glittering phone! Available at minusey.com $79
It’s hard to beat the Jabra Supreme’s strong noise canceling and voice command features. If you’re willing to pay a premium and don’t mind the design or lack of stereo audio, the Supreme may have your name on it.

And for some of those people, a quality Bluetooth headset is a great solution when talking in the car or chatting for long periods in noisy places. For $99.99 the Jabra Supreme brings decent features and quality performance. Available at jabra.com
Chalk this one up as one of those products that falls into the stupid but brilliant category.
In fact, the first time a lot of people see the direct-response TV ad for the GoJo Hands Free Headset, they’re not sure whether it’s a spoof or not.
But oh, no, it’s real. Very real. And the GoJo’s billed as “the only phone accessory on earth that’s truly hands free.” Better yet, it works with all cell phones, even cordless phones, and it doesn’t require batteries. Rather, it simply has a suction cup that adheres to the back of your phone and the rest of the flexible plastic “headset” slips over your head as fast as you can say “one Mississippi. Available at gojohandsfree.com for only $17.95
Tired of tangled earbuds? Of course you are; they’re one of life’s biggest hassles, right up there with newspaper ink that gets on your fingers and highway traffic jams that seem to happen for no reason.
The iAngle is a triangular cord-wrap designed to keep earbud cords neat and tangle-free.
But it also serves a second purpose: to prop up your iPhone, which is great for watching movies, hands-free FaceTime chats, reading your favorite blogs at the breakfast table, and so on. Available at amazon at $12.99
The Wrist Charger, or as we like to call it, Bracer of Battery Life +2, straps comfortably to your wrist and plugs in to just about any electronic device you like. It’ll power cell phones, mp3 players, gaming systems, or any device compatible with mini USB.
Now you’ll have plenty of power to get through long days traveling (or long lines at the DMV, we’ve been there, too!). When you reach your destination, simply plug your bracer in and charge its battery back up so you’re ready with plenty of entertainment for the long trip home. Available at Think Geek for 39.99$ only.
If you’re not a fan of iPhone because of its lack of a physical keyboard, you may now rest, all thanks to Naztech’s Ultra-thin Sliding Bluetooth Keyboard for iPhone 4.
The keyboard “easily pairs over Bluetooth using wireless connectivity and features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that includes Search and Home buttons. It’s powered by a lithium rechargeable battery and is charged via its Mini-USB port.”
You can turn it on and off independently to help conserve battery power, and it works on any iPhone 4 (Verizon or AT&T).
The Naztech Bluetooth Keyboard for iPhone 4 is available from Hypercel for just $79.99, though it currently shows as “Out of Stock” with no indication of when shipping may occur.
Add a really interesting twist on your iPhone with its built-in retractable screen protectors.
When you’re using the phone, the screen protector lives tucked away in the back of the case. But when you want your screen to be covered, you just pull down the shade, so to speak, and slide the cover over the screen (the video below is worth a thousand words).
SharkEye makes cases for the black iPhone 4 (sorry, the case isn’t compatible with the white version at this time), as well as the iPhone 3 and 3GS, and you have a choice of several accent colors from which to choose.
SharkEye cases cost $49.99
