I've tried both the Griffin Wave and the Griffin Nu Form. The Nu Form is sleeker and I think it looks better, but the Wave seems more durable. They're both good cases though. They come with a screen protector, but it's kind of crummy, so I just use an Invisible Shield instead.

Invisible Shield and a case. Wow, protecting my iPhone 3G is starting to sound like it's going to be costly.

Truth be told, I don't think the Invisible Shield is necessary, but it's nice peace of mind. There's a "Naked Case" by CaseMate coning out soon that's supposed to be very good. It's just clear acrylic (or something), and protects the whole phone, front and all.

That case looks great. Now, where can I get the best deal for it?

I bought the Belkin hard leather case available at the Apple store. I like it so far.
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

I needed the padding of silicone plus a belt clip (like the iSkin for my iPod) but there's no such animal that I've found. I got the Incase silicone at the Apple Store and was looking at all the "hip pack" cases. With the silicone cover, it doesn't fit the ones for the iPhone. I picked one up for the Motorola Q and it fits nicely but it's a bit bulky and blocky. My quest for the perfect case is not complete.

There's quite a few choices at PCMicrostore and Handhelditems.com
I have no lid upon my head. But if I did, you
could look iniside and see what's on my
mind.

I don't own an iPhone but I have purchased a number of cases from vaja and I can attest to the quality. Top notch, their products are a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for.

Any iPhone owners that use vaja cases?
