Want to put a chrome finish on your iPhone 3G? Check out the Griffin Elan Form Chrome!

Elan Form Chrome by Griffin

The Griffin Elan Form Chrome is one of the new additions to the Elan Form family. Made from top-grain leather and an impact resistant polycarbonate shell, the Elan Form Chrome provides your iPhone 3G with sufficient protection while not blocking you from any of the iPhone functions.

Along the front, back, and sides of the case, you have chrome accents covering the case and included in the package, you have a screen film protector (and cleaning cloth) that protects the iPhone screen from scratches, damage, or smudges. You have full access to the silent switch, speaker, mic, dock connector, volume buttons, sleep/wake button, headphone jack, SIM tray, and camera.

Also, as common to the Elan Forms, you have Griffins EasyDock system that lets you easily charge or sync your iPhone in a dock without having to remove the phone from the case. The bottom half of the case simply slides off and can be slid back on after syncing is complete.

Currently, the Elan Form Chrome can be picked up from the Griffin online store for $34.99.

However, one lucky reader is going to save $34.99 today by posting in the comments below: Why you need the Elan Form Chrome?

    I’d love to win this case because I currently have an invisible shield on but my phone has fallen out of my pocket a lot and ive noticed that protecting it from scratches isnt the only thing i have to do. Seeing how this case is impact resistant makes it an awesome choice.

    I need this case because my iPhone has been naked for the past year. Yes, it hurts my heart to say it. And I just haven’t found a case that looks as nice as this one does.

    I fear that my luck may soon run out if I don’t cover the baby. I may drop it. It may fall out of my pocket. A ram may attack me and target the rectangular lump in my right pocket (and you never know when a ram might attack)…

    But this situations would be made less painful (especially the ram one) if I only had the Elan Form Chrome.

    Also, I always enter these give-aways and never win…

    Thank you.

    Good night.

    I have had my iPhone ever since July 11, 08, and have never thought to get a case, especially because I have dropped it so many times without it being damaged. Then one day, I dropped it on a carpeted concrete floor, and poof! There goes the glass! I am in the process of purchasing a new glass for it, and would appreciate extra protection so it never happens again! Thanks

    I really need this since I don’t currently have a case for my iPhone and I’ve already dropped it a few times on my hardwood floors. Not good!

    I need this case because I have gotten a new iPhone, and the invsibleshield isn’t going to be enough anymore. This, after my friend dropped his iPhone (with invisibleshield on), and now, he has this horrible crack right over it. So, basically, I need something that can protect from scratches AND drops. That, and the Elan Form Chrome looks VERY nice, kinda like Rich Corinthian Leather, except that it’s actually real! πŸ™‚

  • Thanks for continuing to publish an amazing blog and more importantly, one for us Canucks. Boy, the Griffin Elan Chrome would come in handy for me. My iPhone really takes a beating in the ICU. I’ve dropped it on more than one occasion, slid it across many a rough surface and otherwise bobbled it with latex gloves on. Looks like this case would give me a better grip on it.

    The Griffin iPhone case looks wicked. I can give u thousands of reasons why I would need this case!
    My invisible shield is well 40% worn off lol Im getting scratches all over and more!
    With my job, my iPhone is constantly being pulled in and out of my pocket and thrown around that it needs a case to protect it. Im lucky I haven’t cracked the iPhone from some of the intense falls lol
    I prefer the bulky feeling that my iPhone has a case on. The invisible shield is sexy and great, but having the iPhone in case feels that much better!
    My iPhone would look sexy!
    X1Zero is the coolest dude πŸ˜›
    GRIFFIN makes great quality products and u can always count on there cases to protect the iPhone πŸ˜‰
    Good luck everyone.

    Simple… I need this so I can show my friends with their blackberries that not only is the iPhone better features wise but it can also look sick with a pimp cover. Can’t show it off when it’s covered in scratches right!! πŸ™‚

    This case looks awesome. I sure could use it as my invisibleshield has been done for a while now. So my iPhone is naked (Ya I know it’s a sin) and whenever my friends been playing with it, they been dropping it every now and then. It’s been getting scratched a lot too in my pocket πŸ™

    My old elan form is completely mangled. I loved it and it has been the best case I have ever had. Its awesome being able to remove the bottom half of the case so my iphone fits into my clock charger. My other case I have to completely remove everytime and is a pain in the arse. A new one would be so awesome πŸ™‚
