iPhone 3G/3GS Cases
I've read some of the case reviews posted on the blog and, while the reviews were good, only a few cases have been covered.
I'm planning to buy The 3g pretty much the day it comes out and I want to get the best possible case to protect the phone. I don't like bulky cases (but I recognize some people do) and tend to prefer the minimalist ones. That being said, what are the best thin profile cases out there to protect the iPhone?
I saw this case over a giz: clear armor
it looks pretty effective but the demonstrator obviously wrapped the phone in multiple layers of the material. also, it offers no shock protection which i believe to be a pretty valuable feature...

Because of the slight change in form factor, I would be worried about the new 3G iPhone not fitting perfectly in a case originally designed for the first iPhone. I noticed Malware and Belkin (and probably many others) are already promoting cases that are in production for the 3G iPhone, but I'd like to find more.
Anyway, I'd caution against buying a case not designed specifically for the 3G iPhone until you know it will do the job the way you want, especially if you're looking for a case to add minimal bulk.

I'm going to get this:
BodyGuardz - Scratch-Proof Transparent Protective Skins for Apple iPhone 3G | Skins, Covers, Screen Protector, Protectors, Cases | Full Body and Screen Protection
And maybe some non-intrusive rubber glove, to protect when dropping.

I like Incase products a lot. These are my choices (of course I mean the iPhone 3G version):
Apple Store (U.S.) - Incase Slider Case for iPhone (Black)
Apple Store (U.S.) - Incase Protective Cover for iPhone (Black)

I preordered the InvisibleShield and will probably get an Agent 18 on top of that, I love their stuff. I hope they release the EcoShield for the new iPhone, it was great on my iPod touch.

I'll probably get their line covering the back(when I get my 3G), but all their stuff is great.
