Though it is, on the surface, little more than another rubber iPhone case -- one with an annoying hole in the back, no less -- United SGP's Silke ($18) actually brings a new technology to bear: it adds a hard dust-like coating to the outside of the rubber, stiffening it slightly and providing a matte texture. Seven different colors are offered, each with film to cover that rear hole, and screen film to protect the front of the iPhone 3G or 3GS, plus a cleaning cloth.

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.
