Mobile phone socks pull up in UK

Handy for scratch-proofing iPod Nano screens too

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

LaRoo MocksWe always thought Apple's iPod Socks were a silly idea, but the recent controversy over scratched Nano screens may persuade the case-less to reconsider investing in something soft to cushion their favourite portable music player's display.

And now mobile phone owners similarly concerned about grazing their handsets can do the same.

Australian operation LaRoo has begun selling its Mocks mobile phone socks in the UK, having inked a sales deal with handset retail giant Carphone Warehouse. TopShop on London's Oxford Street has them too, we're told.

Mocks, like iPod Socks, are colourfully knitted slip cases. Where Apple's versions are available only in the rainbow hues chosen for the original Apple logo, Mocks are available in a range of 30-odd picture designs.

Apple sells its Socks for the princely sum of £19 for six, or £3.17 apiece. CW is selling Mocks for £5 a throw. Or should that be pull.

Anyway, with Winter approaching, Mocks and/or Socks could make the ideal prezzy for anyone with a chilly wil... er... MP3 player. ®
