Griffin's first plastic case for the iPhone 4 is Reveal ($25), which uses a combination of rubber edging and a clear hard plastic back to protect all of the device save for its screen. The opaque rubber has holes for the headphone port, microphones, speakers, and vibrate switch, with integrated button covers; Griffin's rear cover has a keyhole-shaped hole for the iPhone 4's back camera, unfortunately interfering with the LED flash due to the hole's size and tapering. The company will offer a free replacement version of Reveal to all current customers when the revised case is released in late July.

Updated July 21, 2010: The revised version of Reveal is shown below, with a more open camera and flash hole on the back.


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.
