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.
