    I know all the new cases are not announce yet for the iPhone 4 but historically who makes the best super thin case?

    I'd like a super thin (approx. 1 mm) hard case with a slick finish. I like my phone to slide into my pocket. There are a number of manufacturers for a super thin 3gs case but hard to tell about the quality and how slick they are.

    Incipio feather would be my recommendation.

    I am waiting for Power Support to release their iPhone 4 lineups. :)

    ... although I may decide to keep the back side exposed this time.

    The incipio feather looks good. Anyone have a comparison to the "Barely There" case?

    Just ordered the casemate barely there case. Had one on my iPhone 3GS and it was perfect. It added very minimal bulk, just enough for a "grip" - which is what I usually need/want the case for.

    I bought a Reveal tidy and love it. How does it mess up the flash? There is a cutaway on the back for the camera and flash...

    +1 on the feather. It's matte so it's easy to grip and does not scratch much (unlike a glossy plastic case). It's also ultra thin and does not add much bulk to the phone.

    Light from the flash diffuses along the clear plastic and gives your photos an ugly bluish cast. Check the thread in the Accessories subforum.

    I bought it online from Cancom UK it's one of their retailers that carry it. It's 19.95 usd and in stock right now but there eventually will be ones in the us that carry it. Check cygnets retailer list not the website.

    edit: looks like they are out of stock now... they also carry the incipio feather too.

    Plus, it's not exactly thin.

    Really liking this one ^^^^

    I'm interested in a case that does two things:

    1. Protects the phone from the now infamous glass shatter

    2. Allows the phone to drop smoothly into my pocket. A lot of the cases have some tackiness which catch on my pocket lining when putting the phone away and removing it.

    Also curious about the MicroShell. I'd like to know of dust/dirt tends to slips in the sides. I used to have a griffin case on my 3GS and it was terrible for collecting dust along the edge of my phone.

    Anyone have pics of their phone with it? The official site didn't have much...
