Default I Think I Like This iPhone 4 Case

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.appletell.com/apple/comment/rokbed-aluminum-iphone-4-cover-review/' target='_blank'>http://www.appletell.com/apple/comm...4-cover-review/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"I like that some companies are willing to take a different approach to gadget protection. Silicone and plastic models have their place, sure, but they're hard to get excited about anymore. That's not the situation with RokForm's Rokbed Aluminum iPhone 4 cover. This is certainly not for everyone, but I have a feeling it'll find its audience."</em></p><p><img height="385" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1302039580.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 25px; margin-right: 25px;" width="550" /></p><p>I think I might be part of that audience as I really like the looks of this case. Granted, it is spendy at $79.00 USD for the aluminum version (or $149.00 USD for the magnesium version), but the industrial design really looks good. It also comes in a variety of covers, more info at the <a href="http://www.rokform.com/rokbed.html" target="_blank">Rokbed site</a>.</p>

I think I'm in the same boat as you! I really like the high-tech look of this case.

Going to the company Web site, you'll find out that these are machined from a single billet of aluminum. My guess is that's why they're a bit pricey. They even have some techy-looking aluminum stands for the iPhone. They're REALLY pricey (150USD), but look pretty cool.

They should make a rusty old steel looking version as well!
