With the launch of every new iPhone comes an onslaught of cases to protect it.
The Gumdrop Drop Tech Series returns for the iPhone 5.
What's the best one? Very hard to say. The problem is that everybody has different tastes in cases. And, of course, some folks choose not to bother with them at all.
In doing this initial round up, I've tried to present a good selection of products, highlighting some of the better cases that have been announced. But this is by no means a "best of" list and it's also not complete. I'm still waiting for several other cases to hit the market and as I sort through all the new ones and actually get my hands on them, I'll add and remove products from the list.
As always, if you have any cases you'd like to recommend (or don't care for), please add your two cents in the comments section. I should also point out that not all the cases in the roundup are available yet. Some are due to arrive in October. And in some instances, a case may already be sold out after an initial production run. (Yes, case makers are scrambling to get new cases out the door as fast as they can).
