Fashionable iPhone cases: JAVOedge 3G iPhone back covers

JAVOedge 3G back cover
So folks who've been reading dearly devoted know that I'm in love with my iPhone 3G. Like most owners, I have an intense love/hate about it. However, one of things I DO love about my iPhone is its fashionable appeal. What I don't like? The plain, boring, or god forbid, FUGLY iPhone cases that don't offer the same level of cool/hip/glam factor that iPhones attract. Take a look at this example + this example. What is that?!

So, one of the perks of living in Seattle is being surrounded by the tech industry. And working in it. Who would have thought I would have landed a gig working in an online gadget accessories store? Even better, a gadget accessories store that sells iPhone 3G cases? Mwah ha ha ha ha. You can see where this is going.

So in full disclosure, I decided to review my company's iPhone 3G back covers especially since they didn't mind my feedback as a designer-friendly, female blogger. I've catalogued their latest line of 3G iPhone decorative cases that I liked and are good, affordable examples of when iPhone 3G cases match the phone's looks in terms of fashionable, glam, pretty asthetic. As a tech patriot, I'm doing my part to ensure the world is a prettier, friendlier, functionable place. I mean, did you see the examples I highlighted? Do companies really think that females will just like something because its pink? OK, well, I am actually sporting the pink one above and I love it, fyi. But it's actually pretty and I don't feem embarrassed carrying it around--princess image be damned. Need I mention that the JAVOedge 3G iPhone back covers listed below go for $19.95? Not too shabby.

The Estate bright metallic series provides a sleek, bright, patterned texture to your iPhone. Rich in color, the silver and gold back covers avoids that tawdry Christmas tinsel feel/look that bright foiled fabrics can bring. This iPhone cover's looks can be dressed up or down. In terms of fashion, this back cover reminds of two flocks: either the Dolce & Gabanna crowd who love their glam bling or the Tory Burch girls who dig a 60s modern pattern feel to their phones.

Smooth and glossy, this slick design is a bold statement.
The black surface studded by the white grid design is modern, clean, and minimal.
Think Puma, Diesel and other fashion lines that inspire that urban, athletic feel.

In shimmery pink or white, the Cyber back covers are one of my favorite lines that JAVOedge produces for the iPhone 3G. The cover is glossy, smooth to the touch, and brightens my day. Under lights, the case is iridescent (it shimmers beautifully). It has also withstood the beating it takes in my work bag without a mark. If you are like me, you got the black iPhone 3G (whether by choice or lack of the white's availability) and still want the look of a white 3G? JAVOedge's Cyber Back Cover is a pretty glossy white compromise. This design matches the Apple asthetic for a modern, colorful, graphic approach.

Covered in a harlequin-print, the Metallic Checker back covers are a dressier option for your 3G phone. For a special occasion or to work, this back cover would match for going out or for a job interview even. It's covered in a silky-like material that is soft to the touch. The checker print offers a nice, subtle shimmer contrast to the solid color. Despite the traditional print, the back cover is a win. The design is friendly to girls or guys. My boyfriend commented that the black cover would go well with his Hugo Boss tie and suit.
I'm partial to the black or champagne.
