DLO iPhone 3G accessories
Accessory maker DLO has launched its initial collection of iPhone 3G accessories. Leading these is the HybridShell, a case designed for the 3G's contours, and built primarily of hard, transparent polycarbonate. The case differs mainly in the inclusion of rows of silicone dots on the back, which make it easier hold with a tight grip. Openings permit access to the touchscreen, camera, side controls, headphone jack and dock connector; to guard the display, DLO includes an adhesive skin. The HybridShell costs $25.
Related to the case is the VideoShell, which omits the exterior silicone. In exchange owners get a sliding kickstand, although this only works in a vertical orientation. The case costs $20.
The new Jam Jacket focuses almost entirely on grip, switching from polycarbonate to pure silicone. Blue, black, pink and clear colors are available, and three screen protectors are bundled by default. The Jam Jacket also costs $20.
