Seidio specialise in making protective cases for smart phones such as the Apple iPhone 3G & 3GS, Palm Pre, Palm Treo Pro and BlackBerry Storm and I managed to get my hands on some last week to try them out.

Seidio Innocase Surface
Innocases are the most popular type of case that Seidio make. They are made from a tough, flexible material that is just 1mm thick and has a soft touch finish for better grip. The Innocase Surface consists of a front and back cover that snap together to keep your device protected. Innocase Surface doesn’t cover the screen of your phone though, so you’ll need to get yourself a screen protector to prevent it getting scratched.

The Innocase Surface has cut outs for all parts of the phone that you’ll need to access such as the charger port, headphone socket and volume controls.

Seidio Innocase II Surface
Innocase II are almost identical to the original Innocase, the only real difference being the way that they fit on to your phone. Instead of being a front and back cover that lock together, Innocase II is made of two sleeves that slide onto the top and bottom of your phone and lock together. While this might not seem like a big change, it almost eliminates the possibility of the cover coming off your phone when you drop it. Innocase II Surface doesn’t cover the screen of your phone though, so again, you’ll need a screen protector to prevent it getting scratched.

Seidio Innocase 360
The Innocase 360 is quite different to the other 2 in the Innocase range as it builds in protection for your screen and you keypad too. They’re made from the same tough, flexible material, but have a silicone cover to protect your keypad and a built in screen protector to stop your screen getting scratched. The Innocase 360 clips on to your phone in the same way as the Innocase Surface.

The Innocase 360 also has cut outs for all parts of the phone that you’ll need to access such as the charger port, headphone socket, camera and volume controls.

Seidio FlexArmor
FlexArmor cases are heavy duty rubber skins that have a tight fit to your phone and protect it against bumps, scrapes and drops. There are two different designs, one with a patterened back and one that is plainer, but has finger grooves for better grip. as with most Seidio Cases, FlexArmor cases don’t cover the screen, so you’ll need to get a screen protector if you want to prevent it getting scratched.

The FlexArmor is moulded specifically for each phone and has cut outs for all parts of the phone that you’ll need to access such as the charger port, headphone socket, camera and volume controls.

Seidio Premium Skin
Premium Skins are high grade silicone cases that fit your phone and unlike some silicone cases are resistant to dust, stretching and tearing. Premium Skins are moulded specifically for each phone and have cut outs for all parts of the phone that you’ll need to access such as the charger port, headphone socket, camera and volume controls.

Seidio Cases are currently only available for Apple iPhone 3G & 3GS, Palm Pre, Palm Treo Pro and BlackBerry Storm with Mobile Fun promising to expand their range soon. Personally I prefer the Innocase II, the locking top and bottom sleeve provide a much better fir than the original Innocase and from past experience with cheap crystal cases, any cover that has a front and back that clip together doesn’t normally last that long. FlexArmor are good too, although the one with the patterned back is a bit over the top – the plain one with finger grooves is a much more subtle case that won’t draw too much extra attention to your phone.
