Once you win an iPad in Unplggd's The Perfect Workspace contest, you're bound to slowly fall out of love with that apple-adorned brick you call an iPhone, huh? So what do you do? Make the best of it, upload your favorite pictures and turn your $499 investment device into the equivalent of a $29 digital photo frame? We're not sure about that... Is this iPhone Frame real or fake?

It's real. It's the iPhone Appstand ($24.99) from ThinkGeek.

One of our favorite online tech retailers, ThinkGeek, admits the concept is silly (The site guesses your thoughts are "WTF, ThinkGeek? Isn't this just a FRAME you shove an iPhone in? Why would I want that?").

But ThinkGeek insists that the iPhone Appstand is like an elite—and colorful—throne for your iPhone to sit on while it's charging.

All functionality is still accessible (even the camera!) while your iPhone is in the frame—which means that the Appstand might be the perfect desk companion. Use your speakerphone to make calls, pull up the calculator for some quick math or just leave it out to play tunes or slideshows.
