Initially offered at an attractive price of $15, iSkin's Solo for iPhone 4 ($30) is the company's entry into the increasingly popular TPU case category -- a material that offers the softness of rubber with the transparency of hard plastic. Solo features a glossy, translucent rear surface in your choice of five colors, with matte-finished top, bottom, and side surfaces for additional grip. Each case has integrated glossy flush button covers, super-small ringer, headphone and Dock Connector port holes, and a comparatively generous rear camera cutout. No screen protection is included, but iSkin packs in disposable wet and reusable dry screen cleaning cloths. Users of Apple's latest headphone and Dock Connector cable accessories will find that they fit without issues, but larger plugs will struggle to squeeze inside.


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.
