Proporta makes some great Apple iPhone cases and delights in producing limited-editions based on timely events, such as the 200th anniversary of the death of Charles Darwin.
Its latest iPhone case is meant to celebrate the "50th anniversary" of the original release of cult Brit heist caper flick The Italian Job.
The fact that the movie was release in 1969, a mere 40 years ago shouldn't stop iPhone-using Italian Job fans from picking up this latest limited edition. (To be fair, Proporta has corrected its initial error.)
The Alu-Leather Case (iPhone 3G) — Limited Edition (The Italian Job) may have the longest name ever attached to an iPhone case.
Handmade from the finest quality leather (no word on whether it's Italian), the case is built to the exact specifications of the Apple iPhone 3G — but will fit the original iPhone if you squeeze the two side grips in a bit.
It's lined with a sheet of rigid, aircraft-grade aluminium to protect the phone from "crushing and impact damage" — something Charlie Croker's Aston Martin DB4, Mini, and possibly the coach at the end of the film, could have done with.

GGG Evaluation Team
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
