    Hey everyone.

    My name is Dan with a company that specializes in Carbon Fiber phone cases.
    We are The Carbon Case
    We will be working with a variety of phones, but our specialty case right now is the G1.

    I'm here to see if there is interest in these cases and perhaps we can become a sponsor on these forums.
    These cases (pictures below) are made with real carbon fiber and are hand made.
    We offer them in 5 colors right now
    Black, Red, Blue, Orange, Yellow

    If there is interest, we can also do them in White and Pink.

    Our price on these are $60 for the case and $5 for USPS Priority Mail

    I'm here to answer any questions you may have on the cases and can help you place an order with us if you are interested.

    The great thing is that if there is interest in other phones in the future with other Android forums, we can produce these as well.
    Please feel free to respond here or PM.

    Below are the pictures!

    Are these like a skin or a replacement back cover? Cheers Rob

    This goes over the back of your phone and snaps into place.

    Sorry Dan

    Just to be clear, as I am thinking that I want one of these....!
    Do they go over the existing phone back cover, or replace it?

    Cheers Rob

    love the product and would consider one if I was not about to change phones in a couple of months when my contract is up.

    What kind of protection would it offer to both the front and rear of the phone? Can you do customizable designs for $60; I.E. sports teams; company logos etc.

    I would be interested. What does this cover add dimensionally to the phone?

    Does this pose a risk to scratch the phone considering it's a hard case?

    agreed. $60 for a case is way too much. they do look nice though.

    $60, while pricey, is not a lot considering these are hand made real carbon fiber. Yes, it is just a phone case, but hand laid carbon is not something easy and cheap to do.

    No, sorry, I see carbon fiber cases elsewhere. Yes, yours may warrant the higher price, but I think i'll pass until either you bring down the price, or make ones not so gaudy. And, for extended batteries.

    Ive got 2 Gallons of that same US Composites neutral Gel, guess i should go get a Carbon fiber roll. Nah, cause most home vacuumed stuff leaves little pits, etc like shown in photos. They look good from a couple feet away, but not good enough up close to pay $60.

    Hmmm, I wasn't aware that real carbon fiber actually came in colors. I've heard of carbon fiber wrap that comes in different colors, but not real cf.

    Anyhow, I've also heard horror stories about real cf cases blocking radio signals. A few of my buddies that got real CF cases for their iPhones said they had all kinds of signal problems when they had the case on. They ended up buying the plastic cf wrapped versions and the radio signal problems went away.

    Wow, is that true? I am really considering purchasing one for an HTC Evo for review, but not at the expense of functionality problems.

    Thanks.

    I would love it they came with a carbon fiber holster as well for $60 ... so hard to buy cases for phones when then u are left with no option to carry the phone .. most girls just throw in their bag but i think carbon fiber is more of a guys thing and there are no holsters to carry this to show off ... how about a holster combo .. what would u say?

    Could you make a back door battery case? So the phone will keep the same size?
