These iPhone 5 Cases Are Your Investment-Protecting Deal of the Day

iPhone pre-order day has come and gone, and if you didn't order yours in the wee hours of the morning, you're looking at a two-week wait for shipping. But you're a gadget guy's gadget guy, and you knew that was coming. You got your upgrade in line, counted your dollars, and preordered a spanking new iPhone 5. Maybe two.

After plunking down $200+ dollars for the newest phone (much more when you factor the contract in) you're bound to run directly into Murphy's Law: you'll unwrap your package, adjust your settings, and take your new phone out for a spin. I promise you that the second you step out your door, plunk! iPhone, meet concrete. Sure, the iPhone is beautiful naked, and the Gizmodo staff goes case-free, but that's not going to console you as you look at your cracked screen. It's time to protect your investment.

iPhone 5 cases are already out, and Amazon's got a deal on KayCases. There's a super-heavy duty version for the klutzos, a hard case for the practical, and a soft case for those who love color. And you get a second case free with the purchase of any KayCase. Order them now, and then when your new iPhone arrives on September 21st, you'll have protection from the first moment you drop it. I always recommend practicing safe cellular. [Amazon]
