    definitely looks cool...
    although the three colours aren't of my liking.
    and I really don't want to be spending any more money!!
    haha:rolleyes:

    I've got one for my 80g video ipod and really like it. If this case is anything like it I'm definitely getting one.

    I wonder though if you're supposed to use it with our without the clear cover. I'm guessing it's just a protective cover for when you're putting the phone in your pocket or bag with a bunch of other junk to protect the screen.

    go iskin. i don't think any of the other ones available now have anything to cover the screen at all. you can get the separate crystal film strips, but that just ain't the same.

    Would that prohibit you from docking while the skin is on? Seems like it would...

    It might be nice if it could allow docking while cased (which I highly doubt because adding even a millimeter of thickness can screw up certain docks)

    Other than that, it just looks a little bit too busy for how clean and smooth the iPhone is. The added curvature on the nice simple front of the phone is gone and replaced by some snapping/removable piece of plastic to protect the screen. It would annoy the crap outta me to have to remove a plastic screen cover every time I used my phone. I would feel like some 13 year old with a play-toy... To me I guess it's a nice design, just not for the iPhone....

    Call me a purist... but that is just my opinion :p

    I on the other hand will be getting this. I need to be able to throw this thing in my briefcase with a lot of other crap on trips and not worry about the screen. The screen attachment is the main reason I would like to have this one.

    Yeah, the flip up "visor" is a good idea... perfect, because you can still see the screen without having to worry about it getting damaged.

    Not too crazy about the colors though, lol... but will prob get one anyways. ;)

    Youch, these look pretty nasty to me. I have yet to find a nice minimalist case unfortunately. :( Right now I have a jam jacket, but i don't like the headphone winder thingy on the back. Oh well, guess I'll have to keep lookin.

    I like the concept of the visor, but I can so see myself losing it since you have to take it off and clip it to the back. I just know I'd forget it or something. :eek:

    That said? I'm liking the idea of the included privacy tint thingie. :p

    Pretty, can someone compare to the Incase cases? Side by side shots perhaps?

    If you played with an iPhone and moved it around, its kinda hard to see the screen already if u aren't on the right angle.

    I really like the anti-bacterial grips. Although I don't see the need for a case, this would be one I might get. iSkin seems to make a lot of really nice stuff.

    Privacy tint is pretty neat...I don't like being around people who want to read everything I'm doing.
