The latest evolutions of Griffin's Elan Form cases for iPhones are actually interesting: Elan Form Etch ($35) for the iPhone 3GS and 3G uses etched, legitimately nice looking leather with a pattern that could as easily be found in a high-end fashion store as an iPhone case; the Griffin + Chilewich case ($40) replaces the leather with woven textiles in two different colors. Both cases have plastic interiors, and regrettably do not include screen protection; the open bottom half of each slides off for full accessory compatibility.


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.
