The iPhone’s 3.5″ screen is one of the most gorgeous displays out there on a cellphone, let alone a portable device. It’s always fun to watch YouTube videos and movies on the amazing touchscreen. But what about when you want to take your iPhone entertainment to another level?

I haven’t tried “video eyewear” before, but it’ll be interesting to see how these perform. I will be getting a sample in a couple months so expect a full review up on the blog. Can’t wait to watch The Dark Knight on my iPhone hooked up to the Wrap 310 while I’m driving or when I’m walking around Stanley Park. It’s gonna be swaa-weeeeeet!
