This case looks pretty impressive and surprisingly thin. I saw the case on commandN – Episode #237. They have some pretty convincing videos on the manufacturer’s website of how the case works and I’ve posted them below. They are drop proof to military specs of 2 meters or 6.6 feet, waterproof to 2 meters and snow & sand proof. We’ll try to get one for review once they are out. Right now they are on pre-order only for $69.95. They also make a case for the iPhone 3G/3GS and the iPad. This would make a great case if you have kids! [Read more...]
So I got a great idea. Let me know if you hate it or love it (vote below). Every Friday night I will post some of the best/most viewed iPhone videos on YouTube of that week. If you find any throughout the week, send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I saw this one over at iClarified.com and cnet.com. Now hopefully this is legit, but I kinda think it its. This guy drops his iPhone into a pool and it keeps working. Of course it could be like a flip video in a waterproof case, or even an iPhone waterproof case. Anyone want to test it out?
Do you like the idea of Friday Night Movie Night? (top iPhone videos from YouTube that week)

More and more reasons to visit our Forum! juanciao from the forums private messeged me a link to a video about Golden Shellback. It is a “coating produces a vacuum deposited film that is nonflammable, has low toxicity and has the ability to weatherproof electronic devices and other surfaces. It contains no volatile organic combustibles (VOCs). The clear, nearly non-detectable, uniform film is insoluble in solvents. When applied to clean, moisture free surfaces, such as plastic, copper, aluminum, metal, ceramic, steel, tin or glass, the coating is transparent with excellent weather proofing and anti-corrosion properties.”
It is placed all over the device, inside and out. It’s not available yet but pricing is expected to be between $50 to $75 per device. See their site at golden-shellback.com for more info. Check out this video which includes a demo on an iPod Touch: [Read more...]
If you’re looking for extreme protection for your iPhone then look to the Otterbox for iPhone Armor Series. This case is truly water proof up to a depth of 3 feet. Not only is it waterproof but it’s dustproof, dirtproof, sandproof and dropproof. Here I’m testing the black version but there is also a yellow and black version similar to the Otterbox Defender Series. If you’re going for looks, this case isn’t for you. It is bulky, but for the type of environment this would be used in, looks probably don’t matter much. The following video includes an underwater test.
Watch “Otterbox for iPhone Armor Series Case Review” on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Aquapac has a 100% waterproof case for the iPhone. It is made of premium polyurethane and “is sensitive enough to allow full use of the iPhone’s dynamic fingertip touchscreen, as well as normal speak/hear clarity.” You are also able to make a phone call and use the camera through the case. It is good for keeping dirt and sand off your iPhone and is submersible up to 15 feet. If it still makes you a little nervous, it does come with a 3-year global warranty! The Aquapac for iPhone case is available for $25.00.
I personally am a big fan of OtterBox Cases and to me, the Aquapac for iPhone case is more like a water-proof pouch then a case but, if you are looking for a easy way to keep your iPhone safe from water, dirt or sand…this might be the way to go! I could also see the armband version of the case being very useful!
Aquapac 100% waterproof cases are sealed with the legendary Aquaclip™, a shatter-resistant premium polycarbonate seal with a pair of easy-to-slide levers. The Aquaclip makes direct access to your iPhone as simple as the flip of a switch.
Aquapac makes three iPhone-ready cases, including the action-sport ready Small Armband Case with an elastic and Velcro strap ($35); the Mini Phone/GPS Case ($25); and the Small PDA Case ($25).
