Gelaskins for the iPhone 4


My wife and I have differing tastes in our iPhone accessories.While I enjoy the comfort of a plastic case, she prefers the look of a skin. For her iPhone 3G, she bought a Gelaskin case, but up until the other day, she couldn’t get a case for her new iPhone 4G. Now, things have changed.

That’s because Gelaskin now has a series of skins for the iPhone 4. These are similar to the other Gelaskin options that we’ve discussed here before, except that these new models have a twist: a skin for the side of the phone as well. This is done to help stop all of those antenna issues that we’ve been hearing about, and is a great way to sell more skins.

Like their iPad skins, these versions for the iPhone 4 have individual stickers for the home button, the black border around the screen and even a wallpaper to install on the home screen. It can completely change the look of your iPhone to whatever design you prefer, and it’s not expensive, either. Just $14.95 gets you one of these skins, and if it fixes your antenna issue, you can consider it a bonus.

My wife is working on choosing one now, and who knows, maybe I’ll get one too. If nothing else, it helps to make your iPhone stand out in a crowd.
