Titanium iPhone case? Yes, for $300

Getprev Luxe titanium iPhone cases: For the lady or gent who has everything (including money to burn).

That's the newest product from Case-Mate, a gadget accessory maker rolling out cases for the iPhone 4 "machined from a single piece of titanium."

"Titanium, most often used in aircraft engines and luxury automobiles, is corrosion- and scratch-resistant," the company boasts in a statement, "adding durability with a polished look."

The case frames only the edges of an iPhone, letting the front and back of the smartphone breathe free. Every case comes with a miniature screwdriver and screws. Assembly is required.

The limited edition accessory will be available online Monday.

Asking price? $300.
