Slightly different from one another are DLO's new SlimShell, SlimShell Dox, and VideoShell for iPhone 3G ($20 each), the company's effort to offer streamlined plastic cases in various flavors. SlimShell is basically a clone of Power Support's Air Jacket with a very light soft touch rubber coating on the black version, and glossy transparent as an alternative for white iPhone 3G owners; SlimShell Dox is thicker, with a slightly glossier soft touch body and a slide-off bottom taken from Incase's Slider designs, while VideoShell has the thickest of the bodies and adds a glossy pop-out video stand to the Dox design, otherwise preserving the soft touch feel from the other cases. Each comes with a clear film screen protector.


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.
