It used to be that stylish gals were more about their five-inch stilettos than the latest iPhone app (such as our own!), but these days style and technology are as inseparable as Demi and Ashton. But lest we’re caught around town sporting that ratty BlackBerry cover, here are some stylish techie-chic picks to keep you connected.

They seemed to be snapped up as quickly as the news hit the Web (read: No pricing information = sold out).
