Three silicone cases previously released by Incipio for the iPhone and iPod touch have just received modest revisions for the fourth-generation iPod touch. Available in several different colors, Microtexture ($25) was introduced last year as a unusually grippy iPhone 3G/3GS case design, using rubber in an almost furry texture to maximize the user's ability to hold what would otherwise be a slippery-backed device. Sold only in light blue, Pillow ($25) has cushion-like bulges that were once compared by the company with Superman's muscles, and the one- or two-toned Silicrylic ($30) is a hybrid of hard plastic frame and soft rubber core to form a two-piece protective solution. Each of these cases has integrated top and side button protection, and includes both screen film and a cleaning cloth; Silicrylic also includes a small video stand.


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.
