This is a continuation of our series on the iPhone 3G, especially with respect to using it for navigation (even though St. Steve has decided to seriously cripple the iPhone in this area by not allowing any real street navigation software).

The iPhone is designed beautifully, but it looks like this design was aimed squarely at a life in a velvet cushioned purse. From an outdoors perspective the iPhone is rather disappointing. It is definitely not waterproof (although there seem to be many encounters, especially of the yucky type "phone, meet toilet bowl" - most probably due to the slippery device surface), and it will chip and scratch very easily when put in a pocket with any non-velvety items like keys or change.

Otterbox, on the other hand, are all about the big outdoors. They have provided protective cases and waterproof cases for just about every electronic device worth using outdoors. Some of the cases are generic while others are tailored to a particular device.

Darren has recently reviewed the Defender case. The present review looks at the Impact series protective skin for the iPhone 3G. The name of this case brought a smile to this writer's face, in anticipation of all the crazy things you could do with the combination of the device and the skin. And the assistant testers (aka kids) were just too happy to take Otterbox up for the challenge. Let's see how the iPhone survived.
