Incase has introduced its new Slider Case for the iPhone and iPod touch. The company’s first hard case, the Slider offers internal rubber guardrails for impact and scratch-resistance and external cutouts for access to all ports and controls including the headphone jack, hold switch, Dock Connector, camera lens, speaker and microphone. In addition, the case’s bottom portion slides away to accommodate charging in a Dock. The Incase Slider Case for iPhone and iPod touch comes in high-gloss black or white, and will be available in February for $35.

Looks a lot like my Agent18 case that I use and really like.  Can’t tell from the small picture but if the bottom portion slides off and becomes a stand, then that would be a nice added feature.  Otherwise only having a small portion on the bottom slide off might lead to it coming off too easily.

my only complaint about the Agent 18 case is that it has no lining protecting the iPhone from the hard plastic case. Its even worse when you’re constantly sliding the cover off to dock it.

Incase seems to have solved this issue by adding a lining and hopefully includes a dock or a larger dock adapter to that in can be docked without having to remove any part of the case.

Is there a link to a larger pic of the case anywhere?

I just pulled off my 2 month old Agent 18 cover and there are no scratches or scuffs on the phone.  I occasionally wipe out the inside of the case to remove crud.  My phone is primarily transported in my coat pocket or pants pocket…no problems.  I like the fact that the Agent 18 case can be removed quickly but never comes apart by accident.  I wonder how easily the Incase model will come apart.  I wish that the A-18 had couple of rubber bumpers on the back to keep it from sliding around on hard surfaces.

I had the same question as Andrew: is there a high-res image or some sort of gallery that shows how the iPhone will dock?

My biggest objection to case manufacturers is that they generally pay no mind to the fact that a lot of iPhone users do wish to continue to use the dock. I love my iSkin cases (I have the Claro for my iPod and the Revo for my iPhone) but neither accommodates docking. I would consider purchasing this Agent 18 offering if I had a better idea of what it looked like and how it functioned.

I need to correct my last comment, obviously. I meant to say that I would consider buying the inCase product, not the Agent 18.
