Yes! It's the iPhone 3G telescope!
Zoom into better pictures
The iPhone 3G’s camera zoom is, well, non-existent. So online retailer Brando has unveiled a telescope for star-gazing Apple fanatics.
Brando's iPhone 3G telescope kit
Brando’s kit comprises of a 6x magnification telescope that screws onto a specially designed hard case, which protects the front and back of your precious phone. The telescope screws into a compartment that’s positioned over the iPhone’s camera lens.

Adjusting the zoom is as simple as looking at the camera image on the iPhone’s screen and adjusting the telescope as though it were a single binocular, until the image is in focus.
It’s worth noting that Brando’s already launched a magnification telescope for mobile phones, but it was released before the iPhone 3G’s unveiling. The older model also boasted a 7x magnification.
Brando’s Apple iPhone 3G Mobile Phone Telescope is available online now for $20 (€14/£10).
The case in point
The price of a tenner for the case and the monocular has to be a bargain when iPhone cases are a minimum of twenty quid!
You could get it and chuck the 'scope!
I think you will find tha a 'single binocular' is called a monocular!
Full res results please!
For some reason I can't see these producing any fantastic results... But then, plenty of people buy other completely rubbish iAccessories.
Go directly to jail ...
Looks like just the thing they'll arrest you for (in the UK). You'll be arrested under the Terrorism Act section 47 ... "Any person an authorised person considers may be a threat to whatever the authorised person considers may be threatened may be arrested and their DNA and fingerprints taken and held indefinitely for whatever reason the authorised person thinks up at the time ..."
42 days in chokey for peering too closely with your iPhone. Well, if you've nothing to hide ...
Mine's the one with the hidden microchip.
"telescope for star-gazing"
Go on, if you ever get one, amuse us with the results next time the British summer deigns to oblige.
