Core Cases iPhone 3G case
Accessory maker Core Cases has announced its first self-titled case for the iPhone 3G. The case wraps only around the back and edges of an iPhone, allowing access to the touchscreen; special openings are also cut out for components like buttons, the camera, speakers, and the dock connector. The touchscreen opening extends to expose the Home button.
The exterior of the case is made of brushed, anodized aluminium, meant to defend against scratches and impacts. The interior is meanwhile lined with foam, which provides a better fit in addition to extra cushioning. The case is expected to ship on September 2nd for $30, in black and silver colors; people can order now for $25 however, using "THEMANTLE" as a coupon code.
