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: (Sorry, I was sick at the time)

White Incase Slider:
Bought it from the online Apple store ($69.95):
There's also a black one on trade me at the moment:
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 and

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)
