iPhone-Compatible Gloves For Chilly Hands

Feb 16th, 2009 | By | Category: iPod Accessories, iPods & Portable Media Players

One of the (few) things I dislike about my wonderful iPhone is trying to use it in Iowa in the wintertime. The cold temperatures here necessitate the wearing of gloves, but operating the phone’s handy touch screen is impossible without bare hands. And often, by the time I’ve peeled off my mittens and exposed my hands to the bitter cold, I’ve missed the phone call.

Enter Dots, the iPhone-compatible knit glove. These are plain, functional gloves (available in wool ($20) or in an acrylic ($15) ) that sport little nickel and brass dots on the ends of the thumb and index finger. Hence the name. The smooth, curved shape of the dots enables the wearer to operate the iPhone touch screen without scratching it.

Engadget says they think the Dots gloves ought to also work with non-Apple touch screen phones, like the Storm or the G1.

At the moment, the gloves only come in one color (black), two sizes (medium for women, large for men) and two fiber types (wool or wool blend). Dots’ website says that leather, color, and child-sized gloves are coming soon.
