ThinkGeek outs iPhone case with flip out keyboard

iSkin has launched a new wave of cases for the iPhone 4 and the iPod touch 4G, including two new cases for the iPod touch and three for the iPhone 4. The Solo Vu for iPhone 4 is a slide-on two-piece design. It combines hard and soft plastics while protecting the rear, sides and front face, with openings for all ports. The case arrives in three colors and ships for $40. Another slip-on case is the Solo FX, which features a circular pattern for an etched effect and uses Microban antimicrobial protection. The Solo FX comes in five colors and sells for $35. The Duet for iPhone 4 is a hard case and belt clasp combination design. The holster is a rotary clip that doubles as a media viewing stand. The Duet is available in black for $40 -- it is listed as shipping in one to two weeks.

iSkin's Pebble for the iPod touch 4G, available for $35, is a flexible one-piece design that uses a matte-finish base and adds high-gloss raised pebble shapes. It covers the rear and sides of the iPod with full port access and comes in five colors. The iSkin Touch Duo is a silicone hard case with a removable belt clip. The rotating belt-clip is removable, as is a hard plastic face shield. The case comes in four colors, each shipping for $40.

ThinkGeek has announced its TK-421 iPhone case with a flip-out keyboard. It provides iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS owners with a physical QWERTY keyboard that rotates out when needed and sits behind the phone when stored. The keyboard connects via Bluetooth and has a rechargeable, built-in battery. The case is shipping now for $50.

Speck has launched its new CandyShell Flip for iPhone 4, a one piece design with a flexible base for easy docking. The case is a hard shell with a soft rubberized lining to cushion the iPhone. The case ships in four colors for $35.

    Marvelous designs

    What marvelous designs! I'm almost glad to be stuck with a 3G and a battered case. I'd hate to have to choose between them.
