With a design that looks at least slightly inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, SwitchEasy’s Odyssey for iPhone 4 ($30) is the company’s latest multi-piece case, and a real stunner. The Odyssey features an inner soft plastic casing, an interchangeable back panel — two of which come with every case, differing in color — and a hard plastic outer frame. Button coverage is significant and well-designed. In addition, the Odyssey benefits from the company’s usual “kitchen sink” approach to add-ins, which include two Universal Dock inserts — one black, one white — two screen protectors, a video stand, two protectors a piece for the dock connector and headphone jack, one microfiber cleaning cloth, and a screen protector applicator card. The white version would have looked great with the still as-yet-unreleased white iPhone 4, while the black version’s only issue is its red alternate rear panel, which really could have been better replaced with the same gray offered in the white package.
