Urban Armor Gear case for the Galaxy S III looks awesome

I like to just browse around and see what’s new in the accessory world, even though it’s sometimes a bit sad to find that all the new stuff is being released only for new phones. I don’t quite get the logic to be honest, as I for instance see a lot more Galaxy S IIs out there than I see Galaxy S IIIs. Still, the new models get the good stuff, and unfortunately that’s also true for a case I stumbled across from a company I’d never heard of before, Urban Armor Gear. 

I’m a big fan of hybrid cases (which are in between soft and hard cases, or a mix of the two), especially if they have a rugged look. That’s exactly what this case is, which doesn’t have a name for the case itself – only the color options. It’s available in white (Navigator), orange (Outland), black (Scout), and pink (Valkyrie), and it kinda looks like a toolbox. The case is entirely one piece, but looks like it consists of multiple pieces, and even has fake screws on the back to give it that rough look. It adds a nice lip to the front 8so the screen never touches any surface it’s lying screen down on), and the rubber like material should provide a lot of protection.

The design definitely isn’t for everyone, but I love cases that actually look like they’ll protect your phone. Unfortunately I don’t have a Galaxy S III, but if I did, one of these would probably already have been in the mail. At $35 it isn’t the most expensive case I’ve seen either, though it’s certainly not as cheap as the $1.30 case I use on my Galaxy S II, which admittedly does the same job and also looks great.
