Yes! It's the iPad jacket!
Kindle tablet with pride
‘Is that an iPad in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?’ If you’re wearing the latest gadget jacket from geek clothing firm Scottevest then your answer will probably be the former.
Scottevest's Travel Vest: the World's first iPad compatible coat?
That’s because the company’s Travel Vest - North American for 'waistcoat' - is “compatible with iPad”, meaning it has an inner pocket large enough to accommodate Apple's 243 x 190 x 13mm tablet.
The $100 (£71) jacket – available in men’s and women’s styles - only features an iPad “TabPocket” in sizes large and above, Scottvest stressed.
Register Hardware thinks the pocket was originally designed to hold the Kindle – given that the pictured body warmer shows Amazon’s e-book reader inside. But marketing the jacket as iPad friendly is a clever spin on Scottevest’s part - check it out online. ®
Wow, can you imagine going through the new airport full-body x-ray machines rigged out like that?
You'd be gunned down like a dawg before you even had the chance to say "Multitask".
meh, a thousand times meh
I already have a common or garden denim jacket actually hung over the back of my desk chair right now with inside pockets big enough to hold an Eee PC (yes, I've tried and done it, though it also sort-of fit in a mildly generous workaday trouser pocket). I don't see the fuss. A slightly larger cut-out in the design, oh wow.
Also seconding the sentiment as to just why you'd need an iphone, pad AND crackberry, particularly when the pad seems more of a stay-at-home or at least stay-in-the-suit/briefcase device. How about a more traditional phone that then has room for a decent built in camera, negating some of the need for the dedicated one? (I'm not going to be fool enough to suggest it as a full replacement, but even the fairly rubbish one in my Nokia beats the Apple ones - Sony models are even better). I have been known to have dedicated mp3 player, phone, and camera when on a trip, but those occurrences are getting less year on year as convergence progresses. The (non-i, non touch) phone, particularly, is rapidly reaching the point where the old 20gb 1.8" disk based mp3 is looking a bit of a dinosaur; I'll be able to get a 32Gb microSD for less than the bargain basement price paid for the whole player, soon, AND the phone has a built in FM transmitter and bluetooth wireless headphone compatibility...
And where are the sleeves?
Seems like the kinda trendy thing Ms Hilton would enjoy though.
If you need a special vest to carry all you gadets in, you should seriously think about going to
putting all your gadets into one of their products and getting a life.
...before anyone points it out....
I did note that a small bottle is shown in the picture, but in the wild the common train-spotter (Animadverto Locomotum) requires a family size flask of the type last seen in the 1970s.
Also the omission of a "Ham sandwich" pocket is somewhat remiss.
Biggest export market for these?
