In addition to other cases we've seen from PureGear over the past couple of days, The Utilitarian for iPhone 5 ($30) has been named for the removable clip included in the package. The case itself is a pretty straightforward plastic and rubber combination, with button protection and a long opening along the bottom; it comes in either black or white. PureGear's plastic clip serves multiple purposes, though: it can be used to attach to a bag or belt, but it can also morph into a stand for landscape or portrait viewing. The case also comes with screen film.


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.
