    I really dig the design of that cool metal case by Tiger Design, the "Blade". Does anyone know if that would fit the 4S ? And where is the best place to purchase one ?

    So does anyone know where this case is officially sold, and not a cheap knockoff ? And would the Verizon version be the one to purchase, to fit the 4S ?

    Again, Metal bumper do you not worry about signal interference? Metal aganist metal...scratches?....:confused:

    It comes with rubber bumpers to pad it out, and separate the metal case from the phone itself. Plus I read that the new 4S has a improved antenna design, that should improve signal strength.

    I wonder if people realize the other products they sell are related to fishing..hehe

    Regardless, the design is beautiful.

    Oh, and for the price, you just get rid of the 3 zero's and that will be the approx. value in $. Although getting it to you is a whole another story...unless you know someone in Korea :p

    With the new 4S redesigned antenna/radio, will this case not be as much of an issue now ?

    all the metal cases out there are so nice but it worries me that they will hurt reception .. i saw this case on ebay and contacted seller .. they are waiting to get their own 4s to determine how the fit is ... but i am sure they wont be truthful on reception ... has apple commented about using metal cases on the device and reception?

    Thanks will be interested to know if this case fits the 4S ? Where is the best place to purchase it on e-bay ? I am afraid to buy a cheap knockoff, and their main Korean website is hard to navigate for me, can't understand what's what

    I have one in Titan/Titan. It does fit the 4s, I just changed my mind about using it. Never took it out of the house with it on, decided to just go without a case.

    Let me know if you want it. 60 shipped. Bought from Tiger Design's US distributor, not ebay/amazon.

    Can you show us a picture with your IPhone 4s next to the case and then with the case on? I'm interesting in buying one if you can show that it does fit the 4s.

    Looking on the "where to buy" of 4thdesign.net (Tiger Design) shows G4Landings as the US distributor.

    http://g4landings.com/

    Here are some pics of the phone/case:

    But does it fit the 4s? I don't think it does but maybe you can tell me it does? The videos i've seen show the mute switch on the IPhone 4 sits tightly at the top of the cut out so I don't see how the 4s with the switch being higher fitting this case :(

    Skip to 5.46 in this video. You can see the mute switch sits at the top of the cut out and it's already quite tight. I can't see how the 4s mute switch is going to fit in there :(
