SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD/iWORLD 2013 – There are tons of cases here at Macworld. Millions. Billions even. You can find cases for every sort of purpose. Want a case that can open your beer. Yep, it’s here. One that doubles as a mouse for your Mac. Sure thing.
Any case you can dream up for your iPhone, you will probably be able to find it here. But in one corner of Macworld there’s a booth that’s trying to sell Samsung smartphone cases to the hordes of Apple fanboys.
I stumbled upon the iPearl booth within minutes of landing on the Macworld expo floor. Along with some iPhone and iPad cases, iPearl has a whole wall of their booth dedicated to Samsung products.
We asked the sales girls at the booth why they’re selling Samsung specific products at an Apple event. One of the girls only spoke Chinese and didn’t understand my question. The other girl pieced together a sentence for me and explained that maybe some Mac fans are only fans of Apple computers, and not Apple iPhones.
Sounded silly to me, but it’s also feasible. I mean, I know one hardcore Apple fan that’s been roaming around with his Galaxy Camera and Android smartphone, so who knows. Maybe iPearl is on to something.
