My friend who got his iPhone a day early (AT&T pre-order), purchased a black bumper while I was waiting in the reservations line this morning, and when he put it on, I held it for a bit. I wasn't too impressed, especially for it's price tag. I think I'll be fine w/ a full-body Invisible Shield.

No...Apple themselves call them bumpers...
Apple iPhone 4 Bumper - Black - Apple Store (U.S.)
They are not cases because they don't enclose the back of the phone, they just run a bumper ring around the edges of the phone.

Originally, I wasn't very thrilled with the bumper, but I bought a black one in store to use until a better case comes out at a later date. I have to say, though, that it isn't too bad. It's well made and looks sharp; very low profile when on the phone. The rubber along both face edges stands out just enough to raise to glass off any surface you set the phone on and should do well to protect the glass from direct impact should you drop it (assuming you drop it on a flat surface). In all, it offers a great deal of protection in a very small form factor.
I doubt now that I will get a case for the phone. Instead I will wait for Apple to release a clear, or even better- metal, bumper.

THey are sold out at all Apple retail stores. I don't want to wait for the mail, so does anyone know what other retailers will carry them?
I need one since I'm a lefty and apparently Jobs hates lefties.
Also I got a zagg skin, so I figure that with the bumper makes me protected.

I ordered a black bumper, but it won't arrive until next week. I wanted something exactly like the bumper for the original iPhone (backless grip for the edges). Time will tell how much I will use it. I have always preferred a naked iPhone and used a Sena ultra slim pouch for pocket/bag protection, but it's kind of a hassle sliding the phone in and out of the pouch (then you have to put the pouch somewhere). Curious to see how the bumper works for me. I hope they're easier to take on/off than the Apple iPad case.
