First Look: id America Gasket + Skyline Cases for iPhone 4

Updated

We’re typically appreciative when companies make bold design choices, but id America’s Gasket ($30) and Skyline ($25) cases are on the fine edge of taking the idea a bit too far. The Gasket is a brushed aluminum case with foam lining, a design that will most likely be radio-neutral with iPhone 4’s widely-publicized antenna problem while leaving a substantial portion of the phone’s rear glass surface exposed; front and rear film is included to help make up for the lack of protection. The Skyline is a rubber play-through case with a not-so-subtle skyline graphic pressed out of the back; again, front and rear film covers are included to make up for the substantial openings there. Skyline actually includes front edge protection, while Gasket is just a rear shell, and a largely cosmetic one at that.
