Root Cases has introduced its new line of wooden cases for the iPhone 4. Available in walnut, zebrawood, wenge, and bamboo editions, the cases offer push-through protection for the volume and sleep/wake buttons, open access to all other ports and controls, soft interior lining to protect against scratches, and a slide-on design that allows for removal of the bottom portion for docking. Root Cases’ wooden cases for iPhone 4 are available now and sell for $59 each; for more information, see our First Look article.

Updated: Comments to this article have been closed due to astroturfing by Root Cases, which pretended to be a customer interested in this product, a clone of Miniot’s iWood 4 design. We strongly urge readers not to do business with companies that engage in this sort of dishonest marketing practice, which iLounge has warned against for years.

@ Clint….I contacted the store and they had no idea that there was a difference in the GSM and DCMA. They informed me that in the near future they will have cases available.
