Tekkeon iPhone case lineup
Tekkeon recently revealed its lineup of cases for the iPhone, including a hard case with soft tactile properties, and several soft leather units. The Hard Case with Soft Touch is made from firm, genuine leather, and uses a hard plastic face plate to provide protection for the screen. Tekkeon says that the leather wrapping provides similar protection to rubber or silicone, but does not add as much bulk to the iPhone. The Hard Case with Soft Touch for iPhone is available in five colors – mint, pink, blue, black, and brown – through Tekkeon's web site for $30.
Also new are the Leather Flip, Leather Wallet, and Leather Sleeve for the iPhone. They are soft leather cases that are available in a few different color combinations: the Leather Flip comes in black, with either white or brown stitching, and Italian black leather with brown stitching; the Wallet comes in black or bright red; and the Sleeve is available in black or pink.
The Leather Flip is a simple flip-style case that features a removable belt clip and a business and credit card holder in the front flap. The Leather Wallet is similar to the Flip, only featuring a wide horizontal flap instead of a narrow vertical one, and the Sleeve is a simple slide-in affair with a clear plastic screen protector. Tekkeon's soft leather cases are also available for $30.
