  • Rebel Scholar Case for iPhone 3G / 3GS, Incase Beware! (GIVEAWAY ENDED)
    This is a review of the Rebel Scholar case, which definitely is a grand competitor to the reigning Incase sliders!

    If you haven't heard of Rebel Scholar, it's not surprising as they've <s>just</s> become the new kid on the block - but you'll be glad to know about them. They have great packaging and ship stuff fast - I received my package in only 3 days.

    They make cases very similar to most people's favorite, the Incase sliders, but with a 'twist' added - they have pretty cool designs printed on the back! And the printed ones cost the same as the normal Incase sliders. You'll love them, if the smaller color range doesn't bug you.

    I have tried both their special 'Mystery Meat' collection and the normal printed ones and both feel... pretty much the same. The only difference is the precisely and brilliantly laser etched Asian design on the back of the Mystery Meat cases which makes it unique. Personally, I don't like the limited edition Incase sliders (although the simple ones look pretty cool), so the Rebel Scholar is a good alternative to me. Another nice thing about the 'Mystery Meat' case - it comes in a swanky box. Very high profile. The box can be used as a case stand as well (it comes with special foam thing inside which can hold up to five cases like this).

    Check out a video demo of their etching process below:

    Like most other cases, these have perfect cut-outs for everything from dock-connector to headphone jack etc. It's a pretty snug fit as well, but I do feel that there is a minor defect in the case. When put on the iPhone, the bottom part is not in a perfect straight line with the top portion, it's a little bit off - but you might not notice it. EDIT - RebelScholar notes the slight misalignment was only because I had a review unit - their production units are spot on. Other than that, it feels much more "plasticky" - doesn't have that smooth Incase feel. EDIT: They do not accept returns, but gladly exchange any item (with a couple caveats).

    These cases are available directly from their site. The normal printed ones cost $35 but the more expensive Mystery Meat ones are $100 each! The price for the normal case is alright but the 'Mystery Meat' does get a bit up there.

    Finally, the company has been nice enough to provide me with FIVE extra $35 pieces, all with different designs. As you might have guessed, we will be giving these out randomly to you people! And no, there's not going to be any choice of designs for the winners. If you want to win one of the five, just leave a comment below in the format "RS- Your comment". I will ship these internationally and remember, if you don't put the 'RS' in there, you won't be entered... This giveaway ends on 3rd August at 5 pm GMT. The winners will be announced within 24 hours after the giveaway ends.

    UPDATE: We are giving away the following designs:

    1. Victory (White)
    2. Cupid Last Arrow (White)*
    3. Mystic Shadow (Blue)
    4. I Heart NY
    5. Fu Lu Shou

    To see how they look, check out the Rebel Scholar site.

    The contest has officially ended and the winners are kadinh, coloradoxmfan, zinjen, eclipseballer08 and timbo. Be expecting a PM from me!

    UPDATE: As kadinh never replied, I am replacing him with Zwayne.
