A little while ago we took a look at the Cimo S-Line Back Case for the Nokia Lumia 920. This go around we're focusing in on the same Cimo case but one fitted for the HTC 8X.

The Cimo S-Line Back Case is a skin styled case that wraps around the HTC 8X to protect it mostly from nicks and scrapes. The case may protect the 8X from some bumps but I wouldn't count on it to protect the Windows Phones from drops of any height.  There's just not enough to the Cimo case to add any cushion to things.

Ballistic Shell Gel Case for the Nokia Lumia 900

We've cover a handful of two piece, shell cases for the Nokia Lumia 900 from the Otterbox Defender to the CaseMate Tough Case. Now we can add the Ballistic Shell Gel case to the mix.

The Ballistic Shell Gel is your typical two piece design with a rubber case that wraps around your Nokia Lumia 900 and a harder shell that wraps around the rubber portion. The Ballistic Shell Gel case does offer a decent amount of protection but also adds a bit of bulk to the Lumia 900. The trade off may not appeal to everyone but all in all, the Ballistic Shell Gel is not too shabby of a case.

We ran across an interesting case for your Windows Phone. Gelaskins are a removable cover for protecting and customizing your Windows Phones. I guess it wouldn't qualify as a "case" but it looks as though it will offer some level of protection from scratches and scuffs.

The skin is attached to your phone by 3M adhesive that leaves no residue and allows for repositioning so you can get the most perfect fit possible. The skin has the appropriate cut-outs for microphones, ear speakers, volume keys and the what not.

Gelaskins has a decent selection of skins available for a nice selection of Windows Phones including the Samsung Focus, HTC HD7, HTC Trophy, LG Quantum and the Samsung Omnia 7.  Gelaskins also makes skin covers for laptops, gaming consoles, tablets, and other electronic devices.

If you can't find a skin design that suits your fancy, you can always create a skin from scratch using your own photograph or art work. Most skins will run $14.95 and will include the wallpaper to complete your skin appearance (emailed to you once your skins ship).

For more information, head on over to Gelaskin's website. We've got two skins ordered and we'll get a review up once we get them in hand.
