Speck Products has unveiled its PixelSkin case for the iPhone 3G. Made from lightweight, form-fitting rubber, the PixelSkin offers slightly thicker corners for extra bump and drop protection, while the textured tile pattern provides extra grip. The case offers access to all ports, controls, and sensors, and the front features a raised ridge detail to help protect the iPhone 3G’s screen when it is placed face down. “The introduction of the elegant iPhone 3G has caused an explosion of creativity from our design team” said Irene Baran, CEO of Speck Products. “We took inspiration from historical trends, social catalysts and color forecasts and crafted a product that encompasses the key qualities this case design needed to offer: protection, personality and comfort.” Speck Product’s PixelSkin for iPhone 3G will be available in July in 6 different single-pack colors, and will sell for $25.

The green one scares me a little.  Just add a ring and it will look like a grenade!

Isn’t this just like their Armor Skin product that I bought at the Apple Store?

Looks like a renamed version of their flopped and terrible Armor Skin which I mistakenly purchased (and returned to my Apple store) last year.  Also looks like the product already cups and stretches similar to their failed iPhone cases last year - which I returned immediately.  Trust me they’ve been left behind by their competition and with this product the gap will only further widen!

Hi Christy…

That’s a pretty harsh (yet eloquently stated) attack on Speck.

How can a product fail so miserably before its even out or you’ve tried it.

Do you work for incase?

l picked up the black speck pixelskin case tonight and it really gives my new iphone a classy yet rugged look. I wish it had a belt clip, but otherwise it’s a very nice case. It does add a little heft and weight to the phone though, but it will definitely protect it.
