    Maybe the black one but I'm not a big fan of either of them.

    Hmm, looks pretty nice. I have a iSkin revo and its a bitch to pull it out of my pocket since its that rubbery silicon material. Maybe I'll pick up this instead. I still haven't used that $100 gift card from Apple and it looks like the online Apple store has both colors in stock.

    Looks like Apple only carry the white and black, not the black matte.

    co-worker has the white one... i dont really like any of the cases. the only reason why i have one is because the phone is so slippery im afraid im going to drop it while talking on it. So i have one of those rubber cases from incase.

    This is by far the best case out there for the iphone

    i have the black matte one, i got it on friday i think, and there was a small scratch on it. figuring they have mac people bitching about small cosmetic shit all the time, i called up and got to a person right away, who gave me his email address and told him to email him a few pics. emailed him, within 15 minutes he responded saying i'll be getting a new case this week, and I dont have to send this one back in.

    But yeah, it's really tight-fitting, covers the chrome ring perfectly, and doesnt add too much bulk to the phone. doesn't pick up fingerprints at all, and is kinda rubbery. and you can dock it.

    the problem with other covers/cases is that they arent tight enough so mad dust gets in them and scratches them up over time.

    do you really even need a case for it. does the back or the front scratch?

    i could understand if it had a chrome back like older ipods but its brushed aluminum.

    it's slick as fuck though, and the back still scratches, though not as much

    the front chrome thing gets scratched too

    Went to the Apple store today and like the online Apple store they only have white and glossy black. The guy helping me didn't even know there was a matte version. I guess I'll just wait for them to carry it since I am holding onto the $100 gift card.

    It has been reported that a few number of apple stores have them, I remember reading on some forum when I was looking to see what people think of the matte case.

    Hmm, according to someone on Macrumors that spoke with incase, the black matte was a test batch to see if they would sell and they did so they are now going into production so it will be a couple more weeks. Unavailable on the incase site as well.

    I'm just going to wait till they hit the Apple store. Might as well use that $100 gift card.

    Same here, I've been to a few stores across NY and MA and nobody has the matte black case. Some Apple employees tried to tell me it doesn't even exist. :ugh:

    I was never into cases but I really want to try this one out in matte black. I'll probably order it from Incase soon.

    There's a good discussion going on about this case on everythingicafe.com
