A list of various iPhone cases has been spotted on the trade site Ali Baba, a site where merchants find manufacturers and vice-versa. The cases, not meant for direct sale to individuals, are available in silicone, leather, and even metal. As mentioned in our recent article “Consequences of iPhone’s early debut,” it is still unknown whether these cases were designed using real iPhone shells, or if these manufacturers are using rough mockups with the intention of finalizing the cases after iPhone’s launch. As of this writing, there are no known US distributors for the cases.
