Several New iPhone 3G Cases Announced
Several accessory manufacturing companies have announced more new cases and skins specifically designed to fit the new iPhone 3G. Among them are Incase, Speck, Marware, and BodyGuardz. Here’s the latest round-up.
Incase is announcing the first of their cases for the iPhone 3G. The Leather Folio is a case made of Nappa leather and ballistic nylon with a suede interior, a velcro fastener to hold it closed, and a belt clip with select colors available. The Leather/Neoprene Sleeve is a slim, form-fitting neoprene sleeve with a leather sleeve and a belt clip available, and lets you charge it while in the case. Their Protective Cover is made of a form-fitting injection molded material that offers access to all the features and also lets you charge it in the case. It’s available in several colors. Their Slider Case is a durable, lightweight hardshell plastic case with a bottom that slides away to allow charging. It’s available in several colors and either matte or gloss.
Speck is announcing their first iPhone 3G case, the PixelSkin. It’s a form-fitting rubber case with a tile-patterned grip offering extra protection and grip. It’s available in black, green, pink, purple, white, and yellow. They will be available July 6th for US$25.
Marware announced two more cases for the iPhone 3G, the C.E.O. Flip Vue and the C.E.O. Glide. The C.E.O. Flip Vue is similar to their C.E.O. Premeir case, with the exception of being a vertical leather holster design instead of a horizontal folio. It features the same distinctive Nappa leather exterior and microfiber interior. Unlike the C.E.O. Premeire, it offers access to screen, headphones, camera, volume control, dock connector, speaker and microphone while still in the case. It also comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth and belt clip, and seals closed using velcro. It will ship at the end of June and can be pre-ordered for US$30 at their web site.
Mareware also announced today the C.E.O. Glide, a textured leather sleeve with microfiber interior and velcro strap to hold the iPhone inside. It’s the simplest and their slimmest-profile case. It’s available for pre-order at their website for $24.99.
BodyGuardz is taking pre-orders for their protective clear film that is specially fit for the new iPhone 3G’s shape for $24.95 on their website.
