    Wondering when you plan to release an iPhone 4 gorillapod. Will it be magnetic?

    Any (easy) way of turning a standard magnetic gorillapod into a holder for an iPhone 4?

    Sorry for late reply – moderating system snafu. Gorillamobile for iPhone 4 is scheduled to be released this fall. Can't speak to the specifics, but we are excited about it.

    For adapting current magnetic legs to the iPhone 4 you could try attaching the adhesive clip or suction cup in the Gorillamobile Mobile Accessory Kit ( to your phone and use it with your Gorillapod Magnetic.
