Microfiber slipcase includes built-in pocket
WaterField Design has unveiled the Suede Jacket and Smart Case, two new protective items for the iPhone 4. The Suede Jacket is designed as a thin microfiber slipcase that guards the iPhone from scratches, and includes an integrated pocket capable of holding a Bluetooth headset or earphones. Available in two different versions, the Suede Jacket can be ordered for either the iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS, and comes in three styles including Black, Cheetah, and Zebra. Each case can also be made with or without the stretch-mesh pocket.
The Smart Case offers a more solid multi-layer padding style with scratch-free liner. The case can also be ordered in either an iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS compatible version, and includes a built-in pocket as well. Lastly, the Smart Case comes in three different varieties, one made to fit in the user's pocket, another with a built-in clip to attach to belts, and one with integrated flaps that can be used to connect to a shoulder strap.
The iPhone Suede Case begins shipping in the beginning of July, and ranges in price from $10 to $16, depending on the design and whether or not a pocket is included. The iPhone Smart Case isn't scheduled for release until July 16th, and has prices varying from $40 to $45.
