Belkin iPhone 3G cases
Joining the wave of initial iPhone 3G accessories are a host of cases by Belkin. The high-end cases are primarily leather, leading them being the Leather Flip Folio ($35), which operates as a holster and additionally includes a pocket for extra storage; the lid fastener, meanwhile, is magnetic, letting users open the case with one hand. The Formed Leather ($30) and Eco-Conscious Formed Leather ($35) cases are more straightforward designs, without lids or clips.
Non-fabric cases include the Silicone Sleeve ($25), Micro Grip ($25) and Clear Acrylic ($30). While the Sleeve and Acrylic cases are self-descriptive, the Micro Grip uses a textured rubber exterior, meant to aid handholding.
Last in the group are the Slim Fit ($30) and the Sport Armband Plus ($30). The former is made of nylon with internal microfiber padding, and comes with a belt clip. The Armband additionally includes a key pouch and a cable capsule, and uses water-wicking material to cope with sweat.
All of the cases should launch in the US in July, with worldwide shipment happening "soon after."
