wow... the smoke/clear one looks amazing.

this very well may the case I end up using once it's out in the US :D

for now i'm gonna ditch this generic snap together $6 one from Amazon (served me well the last 2 weeks tho) for a Poetic Atmosphere i think

You can tell there was actual engineering that went into these products. All of them look fantastic and I can't wait to get the white one.

That looks great, but I wonder how much impact protection it will have.

Plus, I want one with gray/black sides and clear back, the looks will be preserved and enhanced.

I used Power Support's screen protectors (front & black) as well as their Air Jacket on my 4S and loved it. Emailed them last week about their accessories and this is the response I got:

Thank you for your email inquiry. Power Support USA will be providing protection films for the iPhone 5. However, due to the overwhelming demand and an unexpected manufacturing delay, we are expecting both our Crystal and Anti-Glare films to be available mid-late October (tentatively). Air Jackets will soon follow in November and availability at Apple retail stores will vary upon each location. If you're looking for immediate protection, our sister company, TruProtection, is currently taking pre-orders for both Anti-Glare and Crystal film, which will be available for purchase starting in early October. These films offer the same quality and protection as Power Support; however, the films will have a general cutout and is packaged in the US. At this time, both websites are only offering film sets fro the front of the phone. We have informed management about requests from customers on making a back film and it is being considered.
I'd assume this is it, looks amazing.

actually considering the black one over the smoke one... it seems like it has a matte finish, which is preferable.

translating that page to English, it says the white + black are "rubber", but i'm guessing it just means a soft touch matte finish...

I've had their Air Jacket for my 4 and 4S. I really love them, after I picked one up after my ScratchEasy version, which looks similar, performed horribly with regards to scratch resistance. I was hoping they'd have an iPhone 5 compatible one sooner, but I guess November it is...:(

I can read some Japanese. And yes, the page title says 'Air Jacket Set for iPhone 5' (エアー - Air, ジャケット - Jacket, ®セット - Set)

This looks a lil thick, but otherwise the best for sure, since it covers the bottom. I don't know how I can wait till November tho... iPhone 5 have been just a waiting game..... Accessories, iOS bug fix updates (none still after 3 weeks?), App update to iOS6 compatibility and iPhone 5 screen size optimization, waiting, waiting, waiting...

----------

At the bottom I think they are saying that this thing will go for sale Oct 17th. So it's not like it's for sale yet in Japan.

I emailed Power Support USA about cases and they sent the following reply.

Power Support USA is not taking pre-orders for the film at this time.
