Getting a new phone is exciting, but then comes the sometimes-daunting task of protecting it. With customers picking up Google’s new Pixel phones today, it’s good to hear about case options becoming available to give everyone some choice on day one.
For a while, it took time for suitable cases to appear for Nexus phones. Google got ahead of this over time by offering cases from their store, but coordinating the release and availability of such accessories with the release of the phone is actually kind of hard – Google’s own silicone Pixel Case and Pixel XL Case are still listed as “Coming Soon”, although Google’s thin clear cases are available online and at retail.
If you don’t want to walk out of the store with a clear case and you don’t want your Pixel phone to be naked, it’s timely to hear from Incipio, whose DualPro cases are available now at JB Hifi.
Incipio’s cases are made of two parts – an inner silicone case that’s there to absorb shocks (when – not if – you drop the phone), and a slim scratch-resistant outer shell made of a polycarbonate that Incipio calls Plextonium.
The cases come in three inner/outer colour variations: red/black, grey/champagne and classic black/black. They’ll run you $39.95 of your hard-earned cash, a good $10 lower than the cheapest option on Google’s store.
