What’s better than an iPhone 4S? How about an iPhone 4S with a see-through back! The folks at iFixit have announced their transparent rear glass panel mod for Apple’s latest smartphone, and if you buy now you get a nifty care package to keep your iPhone clean and free of damage.

For $29.95, you can’t beat this deal. The mod is also available for the GSM iPhone 4.

The package includes:

  • iPhone 4S Transparent Rear Glass Panel – make your phone awesome
  • Liberation Kit – the tools you need to get rid of those pesky pentalobe screws
  • Thirsty Bag – the best way to dry your phone after an unexpected swim
  • Screen protector – keep your screen pristine and beautiful

Still need convincing? How about the fact that installing the rear panel only takes about two seconds. iFixit has made it super easy: simply remove two screws (you’ll have a new Liberation Kit to help you with that), slide the back panel off, and slide on the new one. Presto chango! If you still feel uneasy, then iFixit has a thorough video tutorial to walk you though the process.

You can grab this whole package from iFixit for $29.95 while supplies last. Your purchase comes with a 6 month warranty. Once the introductory packages are gone, the rear panel will continue to be sold for $29.95.
