A new iPhone 3G case offers protection for Apple's handset while allowing users to touch on-screen buttons.

US-based manufacturer IVYSKIN claim this to be a world's first. Mike Panahi, Founder and President of Ivyskin told Macworld UK: "Body and screen scratches are inevitable. We built a full solid screen cover into our new Xylo T3's enclosure that's specifically designed to protect the whole device".

ICYSKIN is creating three separate cases in the range, the Xylo T3, XyloDuo and XylorReflect. More information can be found on IVYSKIN's website.
