Sold in three different colors, iKit's new Chrome Flip Case for iPhone 4 ($35) is a hard plastic shell with high-gloss metallic coating and a rear flip stand. Using the slider-style design that enables the bottom to pop off as needed for accessory compatibility -- something you may be doing quite a bit as the Dock Connector hole is just large enough to fit Apple's cables, not thicker ones, the Chrome Fit Case also has too-small holes for side and top buttons, making use of the Sleep/Wake button at the top particularly challenging. That said, the cases have a really nice shine, and the rear stand works well for video purposes.


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.
