Cell Phone Straps

Ignited by a cross marketing campaign by Converse and Pepsi celebrating Converse’s 100th anniversary, cell phone straps may be sneaking into American mainstream culture.

Most teenagers have at least three charms dangling from their cell phones. It will be interesting to see if this trend takes off in the US.
