As the newest vendor of clear adhesive film covers for iPhone users, Ghost Armor LLC's new Ghost Armor for iPhone ($25) or iPhone 3G ($25) offers front and back protectors for each device, plus a squeegee and a bottle of application spray. The company's cutouts are relatively complex for each model, designed to provide as much body coverage as possible, even including the Home button. We're a little concerned about the web site, which provides very little information about the company and tries to make the Armor look like it's only $15 until you look carefully, discovering that the full body coverage really sells for $25 -- the same price you'd pay for competing products with twice the film in their packages. Additionally, the rolled-up sheets of film seem susceptible to having the small pieces of film come off when they're inside the plain plastic shipping tubes; one of our sample sheets had this as an issue.


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.
