Looks neat and clean,

I am definitly getting this case once it’s out in Canada.

you will probably be able to get them sooner by ordering direct from iskin when they are put onto their online store, thats what i did for my evo1 and i got mine over a month before any of the resellers in the uk had them in stock. which ever way, im getting one!

When will the updated cases be available to order? According to iskin’s website they hope to begin shipping in the 3rd week of August.  It’s now the 3rd week of August and there’s no new info, not even a picture.  Frustrating.

By contrast, Xskin ( has already posted a picture of Lajo’s new 4G cases in the “forums” section of his website, even though they’re not yet available for sale.

What gives, iskin?

Will probably take forever before they reach scandinavia :(

Does anyone know if there will be a case of this type for the 4g with a flip up bottom for the dock AND an open-up top for the itrip?

According to Lajo (of Xskin fame), his new 4G cases will all accommodate the itrip.  Apparently he’s designed the mold for this case so that the top of the case is concave (as opposed to just being thinner).  He’s done this expressly to fit the itrip.  As well, he plans to offer his “exoflp” design for this case; the bottom will flip up for dock accessibility.

In short, it looks like you’re in luck.

excellent - just what I was waiting for! I think I’ll hold on for that…any idea when it might be coming out?

Posted by Fenderwill in Camberley, England on August 23, 2004 at 1:33 PM (CDT)


If anyone out there is interested, I take back what I said about iskin earlier.  You can now pre-order their new 4G cases from their website.  Though there are still no pix on their home page, if you click on the “store” link there is a choice available for the new 4G case.  It says they’ll begin shipping Aug. 31st.

Posted by eben on August 23, 2004 at 1:34 PM (CDT)


Fenderwill: According to what I read on Lajo’s site, he’ll be shipping to resellers first and filling direct website orders after that.  Your best bet (if you want it fast!) would be to find an xskin reseller near you.  Even then, you’re probably looking at mid-September or so.

Barring that, keep checking Lajo’s website (  He’s threatening to post more pix tomorrow.  Based on everything I’ve read the new 4G cases will most likely be listed on his website as a “Just Released” product within the next 2 days or so.

Cool, Thanks! Am in UK however so I don’t hold out much hope for the resellers…will wait for some website activity though.

The iskin site now has pictures of the new iskin evo2.

The US equivalent price is about $40 for 1 silcone case - someone is taking the p*ss!

Its just a licence to print money from the gullible - ipod users!

there is NO justification to charge these prices.

Order iSkin Evo2 for 4G 20GB on website or wait for Apple Store?

Shipping costs so much that I am tempted to wait for Apple Store to carry it. Any thoughts?

Posted by Stevie on August 23, 2004 at 4:19 PM (CDT)


Stevie: Depends.  The Apple Store charges sales tax.  If you buy direct from, no sales tax.  And the Apple Store also charges shipping (if I’m not mistaken).  So you’ll be paying for sales tax AND shipping.

Also, you’ll probably have to wait longer to get your case from the Apple Store.  Likely it won’t be available there until early Sept.

Seems to me you’re better off ordering direct from iskin.  And if you don’t have your case overnighted, the shipping’s much less $$.

Posted by eben on August 23, 2004 at 4:42 PM (CDT)


Expected to ship mid-september :( And that’s if you pre-order, when will they be available directly without having to pre-order??

Posted by smirf83 on August 24, 2004 at 5:19 AM (CDT)


I’ve preordered the wasabi (green) glo cover and the jamaica (blue) ishade screen protector. Cool!!

Posted by Jon on August 24, 2004 at 5:55 AM (CDT)


It’s all about the BLUSH cover.

Get with the programme - roll on September!

Will Apple Centres in UK (ie these ) stock these new iskins for 4G ipods?? If so when should they be stocking them??

Posted by smirf83 on August 25, 2004 at 1:59 PM (CDT)


I have an iSkin eVo 2—for my 20 GB 4G iPod. My question is this: how the heck am I supposed to open the case up to place the iPod inside? Please drop me a line at info at pcweenies dot com if you can help! thanks!
