I wonder how something like this would work. My understanding is any scuffing issues that people may be seeing are along the sides of the phone. I don't think I have seen anyone show that they have had issues with the front and back. So wouldn't a product like this protect your iPhone while maintaining the overall looks? Certainly looks better then the old "Bumpers" from Apple did and might be a good compromise for those who wanted to go natural, sans case, this time.
I do question any shock absorption it may provide, but like the idea as a trade-off. Thoughts?
Also I am not sure if they will get much love here, but I kinda like these wooden cases from the same company. http://www.luardi.com/exotic-wood-cover-237.html
