Emperors New iPhone 3G case vs. iFrogz Tire Tread model

When I received the Air Jacket from Power Support I swear I thought they had sent me an empty case. Inside, however, there's an almost invisible hard backing that fits snugly to the back of the iPhone 3G and an anti-glare screen for the front.

Virtually thin as "Air," the Air Jacket measures .7mm and is said to protect from scratches, dust and impacts. While it certainly compliments the iPhone's aesthetics, I'm not so sure it would protect your baby from anything more than a dust bunny. $34.95 from Power Support.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have the iFrogz Treadz, with it's 100% silicone rugged tire tread design. As with all the iFrogz cases, it's treated with a proprietary anti-dust technology to help it repel lint and dirt (that's what gives it the smooth feel, even after months of wearing.) It certainly provides more protection than the "invisible" case, but I'm still not testing it by dropping my 3G. Sorry, there's only so far I'll go to test gadgets for our Popgadget readers.
$14.99 at iFrogz.
