Well, this is something quite special for me because I won the Geekanoids prize giveaway. Thanks enormously to Dave from Geekanoids and Case-Mate for putting together this prize. But hey! It came in the post this morning and its here. So what have we—I think there’s supposed to be three item cases which it’s incredibly --. Where we go?
Yeah, I’ll put this to one side. It’s lots of—you can see all the bubble wrap and they are likely pop it. Here we are. It says, ‘Thank you for entering the Geekanoids YouTube Competition. Please find enclosed your prize. Enjoy. Don’t forget to tell everyone about www.geekanoids.co.uk.’ That’s quite it is.
So this is my prize. There are three items, three G-cases. Here is my iPhone 3G. So, let’s see what we’ve got. These are all from Case-Mate as I said and here it says—let’s go for this one first. Quite real wrapped I must say. Oh this is quite nice. It’s a Case-Mate hard leather shell. This is unclipped; we’ll just slip in. It’s quite nice fit. There we go.
So, there you can see, there is the iPhone in it. It’s got quite nice feel to it. It’s a cut out from the back for webcam—camera, buttons down the side and it’s quite nice, offers a good amount of protection of course -- in the bottom as well. It’s not fitting quite nicely. We then got this kind of over there.
The second one; this is a hard case. Oh that’s clever. That’s quite cool and this one sleek front and it just slip. There we go. Just slip this in and then I got a feeling this one clicks together. Oh that’s cool. There’s button here to slide up. That is quite clever. And what’s it say in the front? ‘Please remove protective film prior to use.’ That’s fine. This one is quite interesting because it’s quite like the naked case which was grabbing a few hat on the headlines—but making a bit of use because of—the fat—it is—I guess this is the film I was talking about but it goes all the way over and it still works on the touch screen. So that’s fine; quite cool rather like that. And then I click something there just so we can demo the last one.
And we’ll hook to that to one side and we got another, rather stylish leather black on this time and I think this is a soft case. Yeah, this is a kind of a soft slip case. How does this work? Now the use of this, slips out. And then we’ve got this kind of red and this black it comes soft squeegee plastic. And the knot slips in—so badly demonstrated by it so. And then -- bottom and on the top, it’s got quite a nice grip too. And then out at the button along the side and the silent switch there.
So, thanks so much for—to Geekanoids again for this amazing prize iPhone. All I had to do is watch the video and comment; what you should do by the way and then hey, if you’re interested in the draw and then you may win a prize. Which in my case, it’s in 3 iPhone 3G cases.
