    I don't know if I like apples case, but I like the idea of just protecting the sides so I wanted to find some pics to see how bulky they are.

    They actually seam nice, now the bigger deciding factor is will the material it's made out of allow me to slide it in and out of my pocket easily

    Oh and I think a black iPhone with a white one would be cool

    And what's up with apple and these Easter egg color choices?

    I didn't think they'd look so nice. I really like it now. I'm still not getting it. If I didn't have my heart set on my Case-Mate ID case... then I'd heavily consider it.

    That definitely does not look like silicone, my friend.

    One thing that bothers me about some case companies is the holes don't line up properly. Yes nothing is ever perfect in life but I'm thinking since the bumper is my by apple everything will line up as it should and be a nice snug fit :)

    I don't think it's silicon, and it would suck if it was because silicon might help falls butt I don't want to fumble with this thing trying to pull it in and out of my pocket...
    And silicon is the worst

    I think it looks nice,

    But I don't know why apple pics these colors, I would never consider any of them besides the black and white,

    Pastel colors? Why Steve?

    I like looking at the stainless steel along the phone I think it looks really nice on a black phone having the contrast. I don't know if I would consider getting a bumper and covering it up. I normally have problems keeping the back scratch free not so much the sides.

    Really? I realize there was no need for another thread when it could have been posted into current threads... but I've not seen any of these closeups elsewhere.

    To be fair, I can't find them either now. Perhaps I saw them on another site, but I'm pretty sure I saw them here.

    Anyway, my apologies.

    Edit: I just had to look again...

    Looks horrible to me and the colours are awful. I hardly have any scratches on the chrome on my 2G after more than 2.5 years without a case.

    I'll probably get a white or black on for my black phone. Will have to see them in the store first. This paired with an invisible shield on the back will be good.

    OK 3 min later you have convinced me that white or black may look good on the black iPhone but the other colours are still ugly.

    White on white and black on black (please, no racial jokes) would actually look awesome, in my opinion.

    I wish they were translucent with bright tints.

    With LED's that can differentiate between different notifications such as Call or Text or whatever, then yes please :D
    Bright tints as in slight neon but translucent :p
    Like these you know ? -> http://cdn.cbsi.com.au/cnet2/i/r/2005/games/hardware/22052407/sc001.jpg but more hm..faint in their colors :p
    Not luminescent, even though that would be fun during night.
