What all five of these new Macally cases for iPhone 4 have in common is their inclusion of a "screen cleaning sticky swipe," a little gray pad that uses "detachable residue free" adhesive to stick to the back of the device -- or something else -- and wipe the screen clean of fingerprints. From there, they differ: FlexFitP4 ($TBD) is a really nice frosted clear soft plastic case with integrated button protection, while MSuitP4 ($30) is a black silicone version with a place for the swipe in the back, radiating out concentric pill-shaped waves. MetroBP4 ($30) is a very similar black hard plastic shell with the same rear wave and swipe design, but less protection for the iPhone's top and bottom, and MetroCP4 ($30) is a clear hard plastic version without the waves and swipe space, and similarly lacking in top and bottom protection. Both include wrist straps. Finally, KickstandP4 ($TBD) is a black hard plastic shell with a video viewing kickstand at back, not bundled with a wrist strap. None of the cases includes screen protection.

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.
