OtterBox Commuter and Commuter TL Series for iPhone 3G/3GS
OtterBox is known for their protective case designs and they recently released a couple of products for the iPhone 3G and 3GS that offer protection with style. These two cases use the best of silicone with a touch plastic protective shell. Each case comes with a screen cover to protect the front of the iPhone while the case protects the sides and back.

Included screen protector
You will find a screen protector inside, along with an application card and simple directions. The screen protector is self adhesive and easy to install.
Two parts of the case
An inner silicone piece fits over your iPhone, with a hard plastic shell covering the back and sides.
OtterBox Commuter Series in hand
The case adds very little to the iPhone so you don't sacrifice much in size to use the case.
Back of the Commuter Series
An OtterBox logo appears on the back. There is an opening for the Apple logo on the back as well.
3.5mm headset jack cover
A rubber plug fits over the 3.5mm headset jack to prevent dust and dirt from penetrating into the open port.
Ringer switch and volume buttons
There is an opening for the ringer switch and rubber protrusions allow you to control the volume through the case.
Lower rubber iPhone plug
There is a large rubber plug that fits over the bottom iPhone connection port. As you can see there are also openings for the speakers on the bottom.
Uncovering the bottom port
You can see the rubber piece covering the Apple iPhone port.

Back covering the Apple logo
One reason I like the Commuter TL over the Commuter Series is the protective plastic cover over the Apple logo. I don't want my casing scratched at all so want this covered up.
