That sounded dirty.
We’ve discussed the Owle Bubo many times on HHH, and we still think it’s the hippest accessory around. It smooths out your iPhone 3GS footage, adds a wide angle lens, comes with a directional microphone, offers plenty of expansion possibilities, and looks cool as hell.
The iPhone 3GS slipped right into the Bubo’s custom carved slot, like a hand in a glove. But now, Apple has announced the iPhone 4. It features sharper angles, and a thinner body. Will its modified form-factor still fit properly in our existing Owle Bubos?
I’ve been asked that question over and over again. So, I decided to go straight to the source for an answer. I spoke with Harold Smith, one of the Owle’s inventors. Turns out, he’s been getting bombarded by the same question. So, will it work? Here’s what he had to say:
We’re actually very confident it will work but can’t make any official announcements until we’ve got a test unit in our hands. If for some reason it doesn’t work, we won’t sleep until we are pumping out ones that do!
Based on the announced specs, Harold believes it will work. That’s good news if you’ve already taken the plunge and purchased an Owle. Naturally, he’s not making any guarantees just yet. I plan on getting the iPhone 4 the second it’s released, so I’ll be posting my own results soon after.
