Please note: those are the PR people’s bullet points for each product, and not necessarily our own opinions.

That’s over $400 worth of accessories! To win this wonderful collection of swag, simply comment below with an explanation of why you’re sticking with your iPhone 3G or 3GS instead of upgrading to the iPhone 4 or switching to Android. We’ll pick a lucky winner on Friday morning!

As usual, this contest is unfortunately only open to people with a U.S. mailing address. We’re unable to ship internationally. If you live across the pond, feel free to enter and provide us with a U.S. mailing address; but you’ll be responsible for getting the gear to you on your own dime (or Euro, as the case may be).
