    I went on to the Incipio website this AM and see that they are coming out with a new case for the Iphone 3G/3GS called the Honu. Looks pretty unique and kinda a cool idea. They don't have many pictures up yet though so I am not really sure how the case goes together and all, but I like it. It kinda reminds me of the Switcheasy Rebel.

    Check it out guys/gals.

    Looks like a Feather/Reveal combo. Could be cool.

    Oooh. This. That would be awesome. The tight fit of the feather with the window of a reveal. Could be great!

    I"m figuring out that owning an iPhone is like owning a Jeep Wrangler!:eek:

    you just end up buying everything for it!! I bought 2 cases already (otterbox defender and CaseCrown Crystal) and my GS is still in a fedex truck on the way to my door!! :D

    another cool case...

    Yep, with a matte "spine" for grip and less clear surface to scratch (both of which made me return the Reveal). I would like to see the front - if it raises above the lip, then it could be a "go" for me.

    Oh GOD, soooo true! I can't believe how much of a hobby this is! I bought my 3GS on 6/27 and I am already on my 3rd case - and I am still looking at 3 others!

    My Reveal looks horrible now. I took really good care of it making sure not to lay it down on the window side and always keeping it clean. Nothing doing. After 2 weeks, it looks all scratched up and ugly. I dont see how this Honu case will be any different.

    From the website, it looks like it will come with a white and clear silicone shell insert. So I am assuming that if it is silicone, it will not scratch, which is good. I don't know if the outer part is silicone too though. I would kind of hope not, because then you have to worry about the whole lint catcher thing. But we shall see.

    Wow again - it is a 2-part case:

    "A unique, fun and fashion inspired 2 part silicone carrying solution. Honu features a transparent core that can be used as a stand-alone, ultra thin case. Honu allows the user to mix and match color options with interchangeable liners and shells."

    And will have colors: http://www.myincipio.com/category/00_iphone_3gs_iphone3gs_accessories_.honu/

    and a stand.

    i went ahead and purchased (white/grey) this case and here are my impressions so far

    pros:
    the silicon outer skin is much like switcheasy colors - smooth like silky texture doesn't feel cheap
    case looks great on the phone
    they give you 2 inner shells - white and a frost to use
    volume and top buttons actually feel like your pressing a button

    cons:
    not exactly pocket friendly - tends to be a little hard to get out quickly
    only one screen protector and no port covers
    silent mode switch is really hard to get to when in silent mode
