It wouldn’t take Captain Obvious to declare that iPhone accessories are all the rage these days. That said, ElementCase has just revealed a pair of sleek new residences for your iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.
The one with the spacious carbon fiber backplate is the ION 3 and it has silicon bumpers plus extensive soft rubber coverage on all sides. Additional features include openings on its four corners that allow easy access to the camera, dock connector, power and volume control buttons.
Its flashier sibling is the Formula 3. Detachable into three parts, the carbon fiber backplate can be separated from the polycarbonate end-pieces for optimum portability. All the features on the ION 3 are also present in the Formula 3.
The special distinction of the Formula 3 are the bulbous corners, which elevates the front of your iPhone so that it doesn’t come into contact with any surface. This is ideal if you want to keep it from getting too scratched. As of this writing, the Formula 3 is available for either iPhone 3 or 3GS. However, it does cost the same as an ION 3, retailing for just $59.95.
