Last weekend, while en route to a concert, my husband and I stopped at the Apple Store in Memphis to check out the just-released iPad (totally awesome, by the way) and pick up some accessories, namely, new cases for our iPhones. Which for me is easier said than done, because for the past year-and-a-half that I’ve had this phone, I’ve yet to find a case that I actually like, let alone love. Therefore, my phone has been naked, until we discovered some really cool cases by Uncommon.
Made from shatterproof polycarbonate, Uncommon’s capsule-style design is tight-fitting and stylish, with a twin-shot dark matter bezel (whatever that is) that keeps the screen safe without covering it up. Which is one of my biggest complaints about so many iPhone covers: that awful plastic screen cover that inevitably ends up with air bubbles that will never go away, no matter how hard you try! But I love the way this case protects the phone completely, and doesn’t add much bulk to the iPhone’s streamlined design.
But my favorite part about the Uncommon cases are the endless artwork possibilities. Not only can you choose from dozens of pre-made designs, you can also create your own artwork for a completely customized case. The husband chose the Grid case (above) featuring a graffiti design by legendary artist MQ. I picked Hybrid Design’s Oma+Olaf Owl, with its bright-blue background and simply adorable black-and-white owl design.
At the moment, only cases for 3G and 3GS iPhones are available, but you can sign up on the Web site to be notified when the upcoming cases for the iPad, iPod Touch and Blackberry become available.
