RokBed Fuzion for iPhone 5

RokBed Fuzion for iPhone 5

We love the Rokform Fuzion cases just as much as you do, and trust us when we say, we are definitely working on one for the iPhone 5. We are extremely fortunate to have Bernhard Leitner, Chief Engineer, on the Rokform Team. He has been instrumental in the creation and execution of bringing you the versatile line of Rokform products.

With that said, we know you are waiting for a Fuzion for the iPhone 5. We’ve read every comment and question from you on this topic and we hear you! In some cases our answer sufficed, but many of you want an exact explanation or reason as to why we don’t have it done yet. Our team has met and we want to share with you the intricacies which make this project a bit more time consuming than normal.

  • The iPhone 5 has four antennas (Cellular, Wifi, Bluetooth and GPS), all of which are affected to various degrees by close proximity to metal. To not affect the signal strength of the antennas, we must test many designs to assure the best reception in many different environments.
  • The iPhone 5 body is made from anodized 6000 series aluminum. Rokform cases are also made from 6000 series aluminum. To prevent scratching, all contact between the case and phone must be prevented.

As you can see, to keep the case as slim as possible while preventing contact with the phone, while at the same time avoiding all four antennas, and keeping the superior quality that you expect from Rokform, is a difficult challenge.

While this has been one of the more challenging projects at Rokform, we are not giving up. Our promise to our Fans is to continue our research and development, and keep everyone posted on any new details.

Thank you so much for your continued support and understanding.

– The Rokform Team
