Speck’s CandyShell case (http://www.speckproducts.com) for the iPhone 4 arrives at the Consumer Electronics Show this week. Actually, make that cases as there are two versions.
With the new, US$39.95 CandyShell View, you can watch movies, videos, or use FaceTime on your iPhone 4 more — all without adding bulk, or using add-ons, says Bryan Hynecek, director of Design at Speck. Built into the back of the case is a patented spring-loaded retractable kickstand that pops out for easy viewing. When you’re done using it, flip the stand back and it disappears within the case. The CandyShell View is available in a black/grey design.
The $39.95 CandyShell Card lets you keep your essential cards with you in your iPhone 4, allowing you to leave your wallet at home. This case holds up to three credit cards (or your driver’s license/identification) neatly and securely behind the iPhone. The CandyShell Card is specially designed to keep a low profile while preventing your cards from slipping out by maintaining constant soft pressure inside, whether inserting one, two or three cards into the case.
The side-loading card slot is fully enclosed to prevent cards from scratching the back of your iPhone when inserted and removed. There’s also a thumb release slot to make removing your cards easy. The CandyShell Card also comes in black/grey.
Both new cases feature Speck’s award-winning single-piece CandyShell design, with a sleek protective hard shell exterior, as well as soft rubberized interior lining and button covers that offer extra shock-absorption and protection from drops and bumps.
