DomeSkin Bumps Up to iPhone 5

DomeSkin Bumps Up to iPhone 5

With the announcement of any new device come the announcements of matching accessories. And if the device in question is a new iPhone, then you get a LOT more accessory announcements, given the popularity of that handset.

Skins for iPhones (and other devices) are nothing new, of course, but the announcement Gear Diary received from DomeSkin caught my attention because it sounded like a different design concept. Most skins are intended to be as flat and thin as possible, so as to protect a device from scratches without adding bulk. If it suits the consumer, the skin may also add a bit of decoration or personality.

DomeSkins, on the other hand, advertise that they have a slight “dome,” provided by the a “clear 3D top coating” which gives the skin better grip and feel without adding bulk. According to the company:

The DomeSkin is specially designed to protect your expensive device while allowing you to personalize it with your own unique custom style. DomeSkin products can be easily removed from the device arid come off totally clean thanks to the patented 3M technology used in the construction.

Unlike thin vinyl based skins, DomeSkin products are reusable and they provide an additional 3D layer of protection. The clear dome design not only offers a customizable stylish 3D look for your device, it also inhibits slipping and allows better gripping of the device. DomeSkin products are scratch-resistant and much more durable than other thin vinyl skin products.

Available in a number of designs for $19.99, DomeSkins are also available for  a number of other handsets, as well as for the iPad (at a price of $29.99).

DomeSkins for the iPhone 5 are available here.
