    Thats a sick bumper type case. I would if it would go towards the cost of the case when available.

    EDIT: oops maybe I should of read the info and not just watched the video. Damn $65 for a case thats not available yet. Reminds me of the whole Vapor cases that everyone preordered and waited on forever.

    not sold on this one, it leaves your i4s front and back open and prone to scratches. It only protects sides

    That is freaking sick! But overpriced and offers little protection.

    "Finally a case that compliments and protects your phone"


    How exactly does that case protect anything? All it has done is cover the steel antenna of the iPhone with an aluminium surround. Drop that on the ground and it will break just as easily as a naked one would.

    Personally I think the original iPhone design looks better on it's own.

    I'm not sure how it would actually protect your phone though. The aluminum would still transfer nearly the full amount of energy to your phone if you dropped it on the side. The front and back are completely unprotected. And it seems like the aluminum would interfere with the antennas. ?

    I don't see the point here at all. Of course it's one of the more attractive cases, but it seems to me like all it does is make your phone more bulky and make the reception worse. Without providing any protection, except maybe keeping the sides from getting scratched (which isn't a problem to begin with).

    It's a bumper not a case.

    It sure looks cute but I'm doubting it will protect my phone from a drop face flat.

    yeah, and it's a bad bumper at that. The whole point of bumpers is that they're made of some sort of rubberized or otherwise energy absorbing materials. Aluminum is one of the least energy absorbing materials in the world (hence its use in aluminum bats).

    I totally agree. This was my first thought when I saw it. Not really sure what the point of it is??

    It's a good looking case, but not as good looking as the naked phone, IMHO. I'll just stick with my front and back screen shields (no pun intended).

    I dunno if it's just me but that would make my iphone4s look like my old iPhone 3G.

    the iPhone is known to have low self-esteem, so this is a very valuable feature.
