BodyGuardz has updated two of its perennial protective skin lines to fit the newly released iPhone 5. Armor Carbon Fiber ($20) is a colored faux carbon fiber sticker set made of PVC-based film with separate pieces to fit the back, top, and sides of the device. It also comes with a wet-application screen protector film, application gel, moist wipes, and a cleaning cloth. We've also been sent Armor Carbon Fiber Style Cut, which has colored material to cover the aluminum on the back of the iPhone 5 and clear stickers for the glass. UltraTough Clear Skins, on the other hand, is a clear film set. For $17 you get back and side coverage, while $25 gets you screen protection as well; both packages come with two sets of film. The same pack-ins are included as with Armor.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
