iFixit intros transpartent ATT iPhone4 back

iFixit introduced a still-rare product of its own on Monday through a transparent iPhone 4 case. The back, currently only for GSM models, gives those comfortable with voiding the warranty and replacing the back a way of showing the "sweet innards" of the phone without affecting its performance. The new material is also clear plastic rather than glass, making it less prone to shattering and cheaper to replace if it breaks without hurting the phone inside.

The part costs $30 and is accompanied by online instructions for swapping backs. iFixit was adamant it had "nothing against the Verizon users" but that the CDMA iPhone's layout meant it couldn't directly offer the equivalent so far. No mention was made of if or when a CDMA-friendly version was coming.

    Great idea!

    This is so cruel to iPhone owners... let them see the battery but don't let them touch it!

    You know,

    What's even sadder than being proud of owning a Droid is visiting websites about iPhones on it.
