This New Modular iPhone Case From Trident is Some Kind of Awesome Transforma-Case



Trident’s new A.M.S. iPhone 4/S case is edgy. And maybe dangerous. It’s probably what Q would give Bond to protect his iPhone, except it doesn’t come equipped with rocket launchers or a laser.

The A.M.S. (for Adaptive Modular System) allow you to equip it for any conceivable mission. The case is actually a two parter, Trident’s Perseus and Kraken cases, that now fit together as modules. Out for dinner with your beautiful KGB counterpart? Just the silicone Perseus section will suffice; dinner suddenly get ugly? Quickly snap on the polycarbonate Kraken section!

Even cooler, Trident will make all kind of modular mounts for the series, like bike, car and tripod mounts.

It’s just been released for the HTC Evo, and the iPhone’s up next. Trident will make the Kraken upgrade available for those who already have the Perseus case and don’t want to purchase the whole thing. The press release says pricing starts at $50, but wasn’t helpful about pricing beyond that.
