Though one of iLounge's editors is extremely concerned about demagnetizing his credit cards through exposure of this type, and another is somewhat put off by the cheapness of the design, Case-Mate's I.D. Case ($30) for iPhone 3G or 3GS is a plastic shell in your choice of colors, complete with a hole in the back to fit two plastic cards of your choice. You're supposed to install a padding and protective sticker on the back of your iPhone -- the "cheapness" element -- then snap the shell on and carry your cards and iPhone together at the same time. A screen protector and cleaning cloth are included in the package; three of the versions we received were matte metallic, with chrome and matte black versions as alternatives.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
