    I would like to see a black option. But that green one is pretty sweet. I'm going to have to keep an eye on this.

    Very interesting design, but it doesn't look much better than a full body skin. Plus, the gap between the X and the back of the phone looks problematic.

    I'm sure you would probably want to do some sort of wrap. But I was thinking the same thing. I would think that the X would scratch the crap out of the back of the phone.

    I think this is awesome, but would I buy one? No way. Seems totally impractical. Cool concept though.

    I like it, but definitely too pricey. Looks like all parts of the phone are protected if falling onto a flat surface (although I don't really know how well it would handle a drop). This is assuming the front is a lay on table design, I didn't look hard enough to verify if it is or not.

    I think they should have offered a black version though.

    Speedo for iPhone :)

    It does look cool. However I don't think it will be comfortable to hold with the two flat bars sticking out in the back.

    I contacted the creators on their website and inquired about the X brace potentially scratching up the phone. Here is what they said:

    The X frame does not directly come in contact with the back plate of the iPhone, you are correct it float above it. In the center of the X we probably will place a small rubber nub to prevent direct contact if it’s pressured downward, we didn’t think we need it but now we are considering it as we do some more minor improvements.

    I like the fact that they are addressing it. They did also note that the X brace will come in a slate color in order to match with the black IP5.

    Actually, yes.
    It is an interesting design indeed. Not sure if I hate it myself.
