Have you ever lost your phone due to pickpocketing? Maybe it was just too small for its own good and simply vanished? Or most worryingly, perhaps you might have been mugged?

Here’s an accessory that (may) answer your needs. The Cityman antitheft device. Currently compatible for the Nokia N97 only, this classic shell is designed to attract the wrong kind of attention that will put off any muggers. What’s more, it’s simply too put in your pocket and lose!

It’s a solid chunk of glossy black metal that houses the Nokia N97. It comes with a thick wrist strap strap and a detachable aereal. Just pop the N97 in and you’re good to go. If you do sense a thief, the Cityman can act as a forceful blunt weapon for self defence.

If your current phone shop is out of stock of these innovative protectors, but you’re still after that 80s vibe, you can make your own Cityman. Even better is that with your cut out Cityman, you can win yourself either a Nokia N97 Mini or the SuperPhone Nokia N900

Haha, ok. Maybe not. But you can really win yourself either a Nokia N97 Mini or the N900 with the official Nseries Blog’s competition.

My mates and my parents didn’t realise this wasn’t real. Black N97 blends in really well, particularly with the cityman app and those 80s phone sounds. They were just appalled by the ugliness of this brick phone. You can literally build a house with this breeze block.
