Well, one company at least is certain that Apple will announce a 4G iPhone at next week’s Worldwide Developer Conference. Tim Hickman has announced today the launch of Gumdrop Cases, a mobile accessories brand dedicated to the active youth lifestyle market.  

And Gumdrop Cases is now shipping two lines of 4G iPhone cases, in anticipation of Apple’s 4G iPhone/Phone HD announcement next week. Shipping now, the Gumdrop and Moto (pictured) skins for the 4G iPhone complement active lives with equal parts durability and fashion, says Hickman. Priced from $29.95 to $34.95, the next generation iPhone skins are available exclusively on the new Gumdrop Cases web site (http://www.gumdropcases.com) with other retailers being announced in the coming months. Additional surf/skate inspired lines will debut in mid-June for both the 4G iPhone and iPad.
