    I called Incase last night and they said they should have the Sliders by the end of the week ready to ship!

    $10 shipping and handling for standard UPS. I think I'll wait until the B&M stores carry them.

    Nothing special anymore. I think too many companies made similar designs for the 3G release. Matte black is nice though?

    Ordering now! Yay!

    This was BY FAR the best case for the 1st gen, and I expect it will be just as good for the 3G.

    EDIT: Does anyone know where their stuff ships from?

    Their design studio is in San Francisco, so I would assume somewhere in California. I could be wrong, though.

    Looks like it ships from the West Coast.

    Does anyone know if Apple Stores are going to carry? I'm in NY and shipping options start at close to $10 and up to over $50.

    Finally they release it. But they told me they were going to have a wide variety of colors. Nice..........only two of them! It would of been a better case if it was transparent were you can see the apple logo. I'll pass on this and stick with my Griffin Wave.

    Just ordered the black. I hope this is as good as everyone says the previous version was. I agree with Black Mac on the asthetics though. I have a wave case on my phone now and I like the fact that you can see the apple logo through the frosted back. I am only switching because I have seen so many good reviews of the original slider and too many complaints about the wave case scratching the phone. That being said, I do like the look of the white slider on the black phone but I worry that the glossy plastic would be just as slippery as the original phone material. Hopefully the black matte will have a little grip to it. $10 shipping seems to be the norm for even small lightweight items now. Fuel prices!

    The wave scratches? I have never experienced this before. I haven't seen any scratches on my phone ::knocks on wood::

    Yeah, I will order this too incase the Macally IceCase is no good and scratches the bezel. I've heard that the incase slider doesn't scratch it up because of the tight fit. Crap doesn't get in between the bezel and plastic frame to grind up and cause lines all over your chrome bezel.

    Yeah, I haven't had a problem with the wave yet either but there were a few threads on here with lots of complaints and some pics of nasty scratches. I think as other people have said you can get scratches with almost any case if dirt gets in there. Anyway, I have seen almost no negative feedback on the original slider so hopefully more of the same with the new one.

    I really want to get this, but I'm worried that the matte black finish is going to peel off like it did on my 1st gen matte black slider. I really wish they had a clear one out already. Apparently more colors are coming soon, hopefully sooner than later.

    Yep lots of cases do it. Too loose and not tight fit like the Capsule Switcheasy. Since they are not making one for 3G, incase slider is just as good. Probably better. Ordered it, glossy white, 2nd Day Air. Need it before I take off for a business trip. :)

    To the people who are getting the slider, can you check if it will fit along with bodyguardz on the iPhone? Will order a slider if does fit otherwise I'm stuck with silicone cases for now

    What did you expect? Its the same offering as the 1st gen, which isn't a big surprise.

    There are several indications that more colors are coming, so just hold your horses...

    InCase had the glossy white and glossy black for the 1st gen iPhone so I will be waiting for the glossy black to come out since I loved it. Did they have a matte black for the 1st gen phone?

    Honestly I just figured they would release the Glossy Black and White first, before any Matte or other colors.
    All these waiting games are killing me !
    First the MacBook Pro/MacBook Update, now this. :rolleyes:

    Do the glossy versions of this case scratch easily like the capsule rebel?

    to bad. I hear alot of things like the plastic strips in the case scratching the back, and it scratching the metal bezel alot for the original slider.

    I can't compare to the capsule rebel, but I did have the white slider for the original iPhone and it didn't scratch that bad, although since it's plastic it did scratch.

    My favorite part about the slider was was that it did NOT scratch the bezel and it let about 80% less junk in it. And there aren't plastic strips on it... There are some sticky-ish strip that a soley for holdin it in place, but they are softer than the rest or the case and couldn't possibly scratch it.

    I've touted this case on macrumors a lot because it is so thin and well made, I hope the 3G version lives up to those standards as well. Assuming they ship fast I should have mine this weekend, then I'll post pics and a review.
