Last month we wrote about Case-Mate’s carbon fiber leather case for the new Apple iPhone 3G. In the post I mentioned that Case-Mate was sending one over to use so we can get a hands-on look. It came in, and I wanted to mainly post some real pictures of it and give you my true thoughts.
I unfortunately didn’t have access to a 3G iPhone, but the difference in size between the 3G and original is very minimal. The original iPhone seemed to fit perfect:
Here’s a closeup shot of the carbon fiber leather:
Here’s a shot of the inside material, it’s pretty nice, and has Case-Mate logos embedded into it:
Here’s a final shot of everything that comes with the case, including the screen protector and a protective wipe:
Overall the material looks really great in person. It feels nice as well, more like leather than carbon fiber. The only problem with the case is that the iPhone users I’ve shown it to feel that makes their phone too bulky. I think every case that is actually going to be a protectant against this like messing up the edges from a fall are going to be slightly bulky like this, but to each his own!
Update: We now sell this in our store, and can be purchased here.
