    The one I got for my iPod did collect loads of lint. But I guess after some use it doesn't grab so much lint anymore.

    Just an FYI for everyone that is interested in this case iskin now has a signup for email notification when the case goes on sale.

    the iSkins are nice. I am real curious though how much bulk the Revo will add. I checked out the 360 view on iSkins website and it makes the phone look kind of thick. It could just be the pic though. I will definately check it out though. I think it's neat you can remove the shield from the front and snap on the back so you always have it. Plus it snaps in flush when on the back too.

    The shield for the front is the reason that I can't wait to get my hands on this. This looks to be the best protection for the iPhone, which is what we are all seeking.

    True, I definitely want total protection for the phone's shell and the screen. The iSkin looks like it's the most thought out one so far, offering not only the removable visor, silicone grip & shock protection but also (allegedly) a privacy-enabling screen cover that appears tinted from angles that are not the user's, is dust repellant AND has anti-microbial powers!

    Maybe it can re-jet the carburetor on my bike, make killer sandwiches and pay for itself, too. I'm already on the e-mail list and will probably buy one if they offer a non-flaming color as the second tone in the 2-tone color scheme.

    Thanks for pointing this product out, Atrocity.

    It looks better than any other cover I've seen for the iPhone.

    I might get this case for review, but I will keep it if it has a holster. A silicone case + belt clip/holster = total protection for me. I especially don't like silicone cases that go in your pocket because of the lint factor and even though this case is suppose to not attract lint, it is bulky and will attract lint if you keep shoving it into your pocket day after day.

    You need to try out cases like these where the input area of the iPhone screen is framed closely. I was using the Speck skintight silicone case that comes right up to the edge of the input area and had difficulty when hitting the 'p' 'q' and spacebar, as well as browser clicks in Safari that were near the edge. After removing that and using the incase rubber version which only covers up to the shiny frame around the screen, my typing and browsing are much easier.

    Well does the incase silicone case attract a lot of dust and lint?

    No sir, I have it myself. LOVE it. Plus, it also still LOOKS good, which is nice on a $600 phone.

    Well I think I am going to get one this weekend. What color do you recommend? I just wish it came with a holster for my belt.

    Black is my fav, but only available online, at least in Tampa. Maybe your Apple store will have one. If not, the blue/gray one looks lame, so use the red one, which is a little candy... Apple ships REALLY fast (I had the case around 4 days after I ordered it).

    Yeah mine took about 4 days to arrive too via Apple online store. Really, this case is in another league from most of the others I've seen. I'd have loved something like this for my iPod a couple years ago.

    Oh, and its actually different than the pictures on the incase website and on Apple online store's pictures of the case - the front edge covers the shiny metal frame of the front of the iPhone pretty much completely. So with the black case you get what looks like a black glossy screen framed completely in nice snug fitting rubber. When you hold it, the incase feels like a part of the phone.

    It's just slightly thicker than the Speck silicone case but still fits nicely in even a jeans pocket. Doesn't slide around or fall sideways down in the bottom of the pocket either. Not a lint magnet. Also the rubber has a decent grip for placing on a flat area of your car's center console.

    The one we're talking about does... the InCase black rubber case.
