To understand mass hysteria, one only needs to search for iPhone accessories.  Everyone’s jumped on the bandwagon, including the high-end dealers.  Most of the fancy lot, like Vuitton or Gucci, offer flat, snug-fitting slip cases where the entire device must be removed for use.

Enter Valextra, aka the Italian Hermes.  They’ve produced a “Star Trek communicator” in their signature leather with black piping.  This one is $320 and there are others, as well.  Barney’s New York has the rights in the U.S. otherwise you need to waltz into one of their showrooms in Italy, drat the luck!
