XSKN 3G iPhone skin
Amid leaked designs of the 3G iPhone, iPod accessory manufacturer XSKN has unveiled silicone sleeves that corroborate a design that has been leaked from several sources, featuring a rounded, tapered backside. While not an official notice by any stretch of the imagination, it certainly seems to support earlier reports of the much-discussed plastic-backed design. The cases ship in 13 vibrant color combinations, and are available for $25.
Reports came in during April that 3G iPhones were spotted on the street, featuring a black plastic shell and curvier features.
Another report indicates that Apple's iPhone 2.0 launch partners were slipped a template that indicates specific design dimensions, as well as a potential color swatch of white, black, and red.
