[THIS SPACE IS INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK FOR IPHONE
My current iPhone is about half as thick and twice as thin
as my old iPhone, but is otherwise very similar in all
respects. In particular, it has a front and a back. The
front has a screen and does things; the back does
does not. The only purpose of the back, as far as I can
tell, is to stop things falling out of the middle, by trapping
them between itself and the front.
In some far-distant future, I suspect that iPhones will have
two fronts, which would be twice as good. But this
technology must await as-yet-inconceivable advances in
science and technology.
In the interim meantime while we wait, therefore, it
would behove the iPhone accessory market to produce a
twin-phone-case. It would consist of a rectangular frame
with rounded corners, into which two iPhones could be
fitted, back to back.
The result would be a slightly thicker iPhone, but it would
have two fronts - one on each side. With suitable apps,
this would open up unlimitless possibilities, such as being
able to dial a completely random number on one phone
whilst dialling your intended number on the other.
Has two fronts. [tatterdemalion, Jul 16 2016]
||Ive always thought that since the first thing a person
does with a new phone is to encase it in a case, then
theres really no point in selling phones that are a]
any specific colour, and 2) have any unnecessary
casing, for example, a back of any sort.
||Put an Android on one side. Maybe Lt. Data.
||If one were to cleverly dial the other phone, one could then
talk to one's self.
||Don't come looking for sympathy here. If you suffer from an IPhoney it's your own stupid fault.
||We are prepared to loan you a tool suitable for improving iPhoneys. It's called a "hammer".
||Mr. Ian, I have had my phone, or another version of my
phone, for 4 years. It has never been jacketed. It's naked. I'm
a bad mother. Shame.
||Likewise, my fancy new Wileyfox Swift (a cheap
Android phone) doesn't have a case.
||How are you getting on with that? Ive read about it
with interest. 17.5% in fact.
||[tatterdemalion]'s link shows me that science and
technology have advanced far further than I had
remotely considered possible. I covet such an item.

||Indeed. We understand that recent research shows that within a century it may actually be possible to teach women to read without their heads exploding. Experiments involving hammering a Tefal pressure cooker onto a woman's head have shown satisfactory outcomes in a statistically significant sample.We thought it fanciful, but numbers don't lie.
