Diverging considerably in design, iSkin's new Touch Duo ($40) and Pebble ($35) for iPod touch 4G are nonetheless similar in scope of protection. Whereas Touch Duo takes inspiration from iSkin's long-standing series of two-piece Duo cases with hard plastic front shells and opaque soft rubber rear frames, covering everything except for the touch's camera, microphone, screen, headphone port, and speaker, Pebble is a single-piece TPU case with glossy stone-like rear bubbles atop a matte surface. The same elements are covered and exposed on Pebble, save for a more open face that offers no Home Button protection and doesn't have anything surrounding the camera and ambient light sensor. A bigger difference between them is Duo's detachable hard plastic rear belt clip, which rotates with a sturdy ratcheting mechanism introduced years ago. Both have flip-open Dock Connector covers; neither includes screen film. Multiple colors are available for each case, with most of Duo's creating a two-tone look.


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.
