In part because of the only semi-soft TPU plastic Hard Candy Cases has chosen for its tire tread-like Street Skin cases, these designs just seem better suited to smaller devices such as the iPod touch and iPhone than the bigger iPad. Now Hard Candy is following up on the iPad and iPod touch 4G versions with Street Skin for iPhone 4 ($30), a matte-finished case that covers the new iPhone on every side, leaving the screen, buttons, ports, cameras, speakers, and microphones unshielded. Sculpted on all sides, Street Skin is one of the grippier cases we've seen for users who fear dropping the otherwise slippery glass iPhone, and would be a great pick apart from its openings. Multiple colors are available; our favorite's the clear version.


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.
