    step 1: invent problem that customer didn't know existed
    step 2: solve problem for customer
    step 3: watch customer go "ooooh"

    an anti-microbial case?

    Yes I have seen them, and I've used their products before, they're great.

    But an anti-microbial case? There must have been some guy sitting at a marketing meeting going "I have to come up with something quick or Issacson will get the Peterson account."

    yeah, I want to get this case too. I could give a damn about the antimicrobial stuff, it just seems it would work best for me.

    I'm waiting for this case as well. I have the iQase, which is great, but would like to have another one I could just keep in my pocket if I wanted to.

    I don't think anti-microbial is really sufficient. I'd like more information.

    For example, if I take my iPhone into the congo and HIV+ blood drips on it, will the iSkin kill the HIV?

    Can it handle extreme drug resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB)?

    As a discriminating iPhone accessory consumer, I'd like to know exactly what level of protection they are selling me.

    I think you're stretching for reasons regarding your statement. Do you know of alternatives for an anti bacterial iPhone case? one that would repel HIV , TB and cancer ? btw how many times do you travel to the Congo? I'm not trying to make bad assumptions here but I think that's pretty interesting I've never been there.

    Not trying to be mean but jeez. Cellphones are among the top ranking filthiest devices humans come into contact with. We knew this before this REVO case. They are filthier than keyboards and most know how filthy those things can get. Disgusting is probably an understatement.

    Now i'm not saying anyone should be the type of person to open public doorknobs with a latex glove for fear of bacteria nor am I saying everyone should purchase a REVO case because it's the anti bacterial revolutionary product of the year. However it is a creative feature I wouldn't mind having on a product that gets extremely filthy over time.

    If you want to know what level of protection your getting you can start your information hunt here: http://www.microban.com/americas/about_microbes/?lang=en

    That's a link from iskin.com . I'm not going to assume that you didn't take the time to look over the site to see that link however I am leaning towards the feeling that you didn't.

    to the OP. I'm waiting for an announcement also. I signed up for the email notice. I just hope they offer a black or grey color option. I don't really like the color choice they have.

    I'm not denying that microban isn't interesting...Would be great for lab benchtops for example. I just think it's a classic example of creating a need that doesn't exist and then solving it for the customer.

    Just wash your hands regularly, which is something you should do anyway.

    Funny that you should ask me to read it though...did you catch this?

    "Microban technology is not designed to protect users from disease causing microorganisms."

    Basically it's anti-stain and odor...but when people hear "anti-microbial" or "anti-bacterial" they think "oh I won't get sick if someone has staph on their hands and touches my iPhone..."

    It's what...a $30 case? ok even if it is $50...when it gets stained and smelly just buy a new one.

    I don't have an exact date, but my supplier says to expect them around August 3rd...definitely in August. It will retail at $39.99 in case anyone is wondering, which includes the case itself, the ViSOR and the privacy film.

    Crap, I'm leaving for a trip to Florida on the 8th, and I really really want that case to take with me. I think I hear overnight shipping calling me.

    Where do you live? If it really is ready to ship on the 3rd, even USPS Priority could make it to you by the 8th. 3 day select shipping is usually only around $10 if you want it to definitely be there.

    Some people on the everythingiphone forums are speculating them being available on iskin's website tonight or tomorrow. I hope it's true!

    Quite possible. Like I said, my estimate was when I can have them, the manufacturer usually has them for sale first. If they do come out tomorrow, I guess you won't have to worry about getting one before your trip!

    7 colors I believe. Clear (frosted), 2 blues, yellow, red, pink. Don't quote me on that though. Definitely the 5 that SheepNutz mentioned, but the pink + frosted will also be offered I think.

    I'm just curious, how many people are very seriously interested in this case? When it first came out I didn't expect it to be one of the popular ones, but it seems like it is. I'm going to be ordering a few. Not sure on pricing yet, but how many people are planning to buy one? I was hoping I could do like $37 shipped.

    Here's a post from a guy in another iPhone forum, apparently he's been doing some marketing for iskin or something like that. Disregard the part about the free iskin revo, as he already gave it to someone on those forums:
