Our interest in sleeve-style cases for iPods and iPhones remains at an all-time low, but SwitchEasy's new Duo for iPhone 4 ($30) is at least a little different from the pack -- a brown, black, or white "real leather" design that allows you to insert the iPhone 4 into either its top or bottom, with mirror-image sides that each have a small metallic SwitchEasy logo in one corner. While the value of being able to insert a device into either side of a sleeve is questionable, the company has engineered a little protection into the concept by automatically shifting a ribbon inside the case to provide support for one side of the iPhone, preventing it from just slipping out accidentally. Twin screen protectors, a cleaning cloth, and applicator card are included in each package.


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.
