Sure, the iPhone 4 is a fragile beauty and it can shatter if dropped. But does that really mean that you should cover it in a case consisting of three layers?
Probably not - unless you're the sort of person who wouldn't mind walking around with knee and elbow pads every day. If you are that sort of person - or if you're really really klutzy - then you might as well consider the Speck ToughSkin case. Its three layers of rubber and plastic will certainly keep things safe.
The case will run you $US40 and will be available this month. [Speck]
