The SurfacePad is a new kind of case for the iPhone 5 and 5s. It’s essentially a piece of high quality suede-lined leather that wraps around the phone to protect the front and back. The case opens like a book to answer the phone and acts as an easel to prop it up for watching videos. The case is not much thicker than a credit card. It attaches to the rear using removable adhesive. While it does a good job protecting the front and back, it does leave the edges somewhat vulnerable. Comes in red, black and white. $35.
