I’ve been a fan of Gelaskins since the first time @LeoLaporte showed me one on his MacBook Pro on the set of The Lab. Since that time, the Gelaskin repertoire has expanded to include iPhones, iPads, Kindles and just about every other consumer electronics product. Today, that announced that they now offer several beautiful designs for iPhone 4. The straight sides of the new iPhone design mean that you not only get this 3M loveliness protecting the back of your iPhone 4, but the front and sides as well.
With the recent comments of @Veronica Belmont notwithstanding, I never understood why anyone would want a case for their iPhone. Steve Jobs unveils these things and we all ooh and ah over how beautiful they are and then, when we get one, we cover it with some gelatinous, lint gathering case that covers over everything that made the iPhone beautiful in the first place. Does this case make my iPhone look fat? Yes, yes it does.
Products like the ZAGG Invisible Shield and Gelaskins do the job for me and keep my iPhone looking like an iPhone.
Gelaskins for iPhone 4 sell for US$14.99 and currently come in over 120 styles. Plus, if you don’t like the artwork Gelaskins has pulled in from everywhere from Marvel and Dark Horse Comics to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and National Geographic, you can upload your own artwork to create a truly one-of-kind skin for your iPhone 4.
