How important is this product? Heres a quote from the packaging (and if we cant trust the packaging, what can we trust?):
Until recently, conveniently carrying a cellphone was this millenniums greatest challenge.
Thats right: This millenniums greatest challenge.
Not terrorism. Not global economic collapse. Not figuring out why people watch Jersey Shore
. No, our greatest challenge was conveniently carrying our cellphones.
And finally, that challenge has been met, thanks to the Phubby brand wrist phone cubby. This is a brightly colored stretchy fabric sleeve with a pocket in it. You wear the sleeve on your wrist and slide the phone into the pocket, and there you have it: a phone attached to your wrist! Its incredibly practical and convenient, assuming you dont mind having a phone attached to your wrist all the time.Next gift: Game On Glove
