Hey,
I know it's a bit late but did anyone else do an unboxing video for their new iPhone 3G S?
I know there are already so many on YouTube but it's nice to see some NZers.
Here's mine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78XPcsg5y-U (Sorry, I was sick at the time)

White Incase Slider: http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/slider-case-cl59044
Bought it from the online Apple store ($69.95): http://store.apple.com/nz/product/TW826PA/A?mco=NzQ3ODAwOA
There's also a black one on trade me at the moment: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Mobile-phones/Accessories/Cases-protectors/iPhone/auction-236017182.htm
There also may be stock at your local Magnum Mac if you live close to one.

It is quite pricey for a piece of plastic but I was spending $1379 on a cellphone so I though I better protect it.
It covers the whole back side and still leaves good access to the buttons.
There are many reviews on YouTube about it such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHsLIA4GcPs and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsQFfKxv_x8

Thanks!

Yeah was looking at them..very expensive. I was going to go for either the Incipio one or the Incase. Incipio one is only $35. Would like to try the incase one on my iPhone first. Will pop into MagnumMac soon to see if I can.

I've had my iPhone for nearly a month without any case, there is one tiny unnoticable scratch on the bottom back. I don't see the point in paying so much for a phone and just protecting it, there is no point of the sleek design if you can't see it. So for now I'm just going to stick caseless, it's lasted about a month with pretty much no scratches.

Maybe I'll get a case when I do scratch it bad and therefore I don't have to look at it. :)

(Also, what seperates the Incase and Incipio is the ability to dock it. I would be able to dock iPhone with Incase case on but not with the Incipio case on)
