Now that we know the new iPhone 4s is the same size as the previous iPhone 4, you don't have to wait to find a cool case or plate design to protect the world's most popular gadget. That said, I'd like to bring Luxe Plates to your attention.
These are beautifully etched stainless steel self-adhesive plates that fit the back of your iPhone 4 or 4S. They protect the phone without getting in the way of buttons or lens. They also work with other covers (fitting under larger wrap around covers) and they can be removed without residual 'gunk.'
With a varied selection by some of today's contemporary artists, designers and illustrators (Andreas Preis, Erich Ginder, Dan Funderburgh, Jesse LeDoux, Jared Nickerson, Richard Coward, Eight Hour Day, Verity Keniger and Notter & Vigne) you're bound to find something that fits your fancy and your phone. They also have a "Design Your Own" option which is explained further on in this post.
The designs are etched with a special photochemical process and are available as brushed stainless steel with black enamel inlay or as polished steel with the etched design.
