Macally has introduced its upcoming line of cases and screen protectors for the iPhone 3G. The mCase is a slip-on, hard shell leather case for iPhone 3G. It offers a “slip-up” loading design that allows for easier docking of the phone, as well as access to all controls and ports, micro-suede inner lining, and an included screen protector. It sells for $20. The Metro is a 1mm thick, snap-on protective cover for iPhone 3G made from ABS plastic. It features ribs on its sides and back for added grip, offers access to all ports and controls, comes with a screen protector, and is available in black or white for $20. Available in white or black, Macally’s Bella case for iPhone 3G blends a stitch-seamed Nappa leather front with a high-density back panel and a microsuede interior lining. It includes a dark brushed metal carabiner, lanyard, and screen protector, and sells for $20.

imageMade from non-slip silicone, the mSuit is a form-fitting case for iPhone 3G offering a ribbed surface on its side and back for extra grip, open access to all ports and controls, and an included screen protector. It sells for $13. The mClip for iPhone 3G is a holster-style case with a built-in dual-purpose belt clip/adjustable horizontal stand. It features corner clips for a secure hold, a rubberized surface for scratch reduction, and dual release tabs for easy removal of the device. It is priced at $20. The IceCase for iPhone 3G is a clear hard plastic case that features a removable bottom for easy docking, open access to all ports and connectors, and a removable belt clip that doubles as a stand for watching movies. It will sell for $20. Finally, Macally’s Mirror Finish and Privacy Screen Protective Overlays for iPhone 3G offer protection for the device’s glass front and offer a mirrored finish when the screen is turned off or a narrower viewing angle for added privacy, respectively. Both sell for $10.

These look interesting, I’m definitely pleased by the prices.  My iPhone 3G is crying out for a case so I’ll be giving these options a good look.

When I first bought my iphone 3G, Macally was one of the only manufacturers that had 3G cases readily available in the stores so I bought a mCase and really like the quality of it. However, it was only meant as a temporary solution while I awaited my Invisible Shield. The mCase is great but adds a lot of thickness to the iPhone which I don’t want. It doesn’t have a belt clip and I hate having to always reach into my pocket to take it out. But together with the IS, Macally’s mClip seems to be the ultimate solution for me.

Bought the privacy screen protector only to find out that it does not work.  The material is so thick that the screen does not register your finger touches.  Ended missing multiple phone call as I could not slide the bar on the screen to answer the phone.

Do Not Buy!!
