First iPhone 5 case announced

iPhone 5 case confirms larger size before Apple's launch

Sculpteo has announced and shown off its iPhone 5 case before Apple has even announced the latest generation smartphone.

The image above shows the iPhone 5 case in blue next to the older iPhone 4/4S case in red to show the size and layout difference. It confirms rumours that the iPhone 5 would be bigger because of a larger screen. See below for a full 3D render of the case alongside the previous generation.

But before you get too excited Sculpteo sent the following statement along with the announcement:

"Due to the fact that it will be possible to order the cases before the layout of the iPhone 5 is publicly released, each design will be instantly adapted according to the precise iPhone 5 layout." See also How to watch Apple's iPhone 5 launch live.

"If there is any radical changes in the shape customers will be informed immediately before their iPhone case is printed and delivered. Each customer is guaranteed to receive an iPhone 5 case which will fit their phone perfectly." Take a look at iPhone 5 release date, specs and rumour round-up too.

Keen Apple customers will be able to order their iPhone 5 case from this afternoon, European time before the launch event starts. Sculpteo has described it as the 'First Ever Customizable iPhone 5 case'.

"As part of the launch of 3DPCase by Sculpteo, we will be releasing the first customizable 3D printed iPhone 5 Case on 12 September before the official Apple announcement" said the firm.

The 3DPcase app will allow customers to create a customised app in preparation for the iPhone 5's imminent launch. See also: iPhone 5 launch: everything you need to know.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
