First Look: SwitchEasy CapsuleRebel, Glitz + Vulcan for iPhone 4

Updated

SwitchEasy’s latest collection of iPhone 4 cases includes a couple of remade oldies — the black, red, and white two-piece, spiny CapsuleRebel ($28) and fully translucent Vulcan ($20) in white and black — plus a new design. Glitz ($28) combines a hard rear shell with soft plastic sides, using a really interesting, fashionable grid of sparkling rounded squares. Each of the cases comes with the usual array of SwitchEasy goodies, including Dock Connector and headphone port covers, screen film, a cleaning cloth, and applicator card; as shown in the photos, most also include stands and Dock Adapters as well. Protection is nearly complete for the iPhone 4 body as a consequence of all the pack-ins and the case designs, apart from the cameras, speakers, and microphones. Updated: In November 2010, SwitchEasy subsequently added additional colors of CapsuleRebel, Glitz, and Trim as shown below. In March 2011, we separated Trim into its own review.
