Celebrate Monet’s birthday with your iPhone case

Today is Claude Monet’s birthday, and we wanted to show our appreciation to him and his contribution to the art world with our National Gallery iPhone cases.

The Thames below Westminster dates back to around 1871, when Monet moved to London during the Franco-Prussian War. Depicting a foggy London day, the Houses of Parliament, the River Thames and the Westminster Bridge can all be seen in this painting.

Thanks to the collaboration with The National Gallery London, Proporta has been able to bring this Monet masterpiece to its highly protective range of iPhone 4S cases, and now with its iPhone 5 cases launched recently.

Google Nexus 4 and 10 sell out worldwide

The world was introduced to the latest in the hugely successful Google Nexus range, but only for a short while, as stocks depleted within hours in some cases all over the globe.

Google Nexus 4

The Google Nexus 4 smartphone and Nexus 10 tablet sold out just a few hours after they were made available for sale in world markets.

The US saw its stocks run out the quickest, with the Nexus 4 smartphone selling out in the States after half an hour with the 10-inch tablet following soon afterwards.

It is unclear just how many units were ready for launch, however, with Christmas coming up, the race is on for affordable, high quality gadgets, which is where the Nexus brand has excelled.

It has been speculated that new stock for the Nexus 10 and Nexus 4 will be made available to buy as soon as the end of this week. Will you be queuing up for the next batch of stock?

Proporta has now launched its range of Google Nexus 4 cases to protect and accessorise your new phone. Plus, you can now find Google Nexus 10 cases to make travelling around with the new tablet easy and secure.

Lynnette Prigmore, Proporta’s Head of Product, explains more about the exciting venture and lovely new products available as a result:

“We’ve been working very closely with Waterstones’ product team on this project and are not only delighted to see Waterstones featuring the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, Fire and Fire HD in their stores with such focus on user experience, but very pleased to see our carefully hand crafted accessories appear alongside them.

Among the selection are some colourful leather and leather style cases featuring famous quotes from world-class authors, exclusive designs from the V&A Museum and The National Gallery and a Sherlock Holmes inspired case complete with deer stalker hat emboss and tweed lining. What is apparent is the level of craftsmanship and detail that has gone into the design right down to the hand stitching and raw paper packaging. We’re extremely proud of this collection and, although definitely a little biased, believe that these are the nicest Kindle cases we’ve seen in the market to date.”
