Press Release

PALO ALTO, CA — November 17, 2010 –  Speck and iWorld Australia is proud to announce the launch of the new CandyShell Shell Flips for the Apple iPhone 4 and the new Candy Shell Grip for Apple iPod Touch.

Have you been looking for a simple, no-fuss way to dock your iPhone 4 and keep it safe from dings and scratches at the same time? With its innovative flip-back lower panel, Speck’s new CandyShell Flip makes protecting your docked phone pretty flippin’ easy.

“The CandyShell has proven itself one of the most protective and elegant cases on the market. With more dockable electronics being used more than ever, we wanted to expand the CandyShell to meet new customers needs and uses,” said Bryan Hynecek, Director of Design for Speck. “CandyShell fans will really appreciate the convenience and simplicity our new Flip design has to offer.”

The Flip’s single-piece, patent-pending design is based on our award-winning CandyShell. It offers a hard shell with soft, rubberized interior lining and button covers that provide shock-absorbent insulation against bumps and drops. The lower portion of the case features a hinged flip-back panel that makes docking a snap. And when the case is removed from the dock, the panel simply flips down into place to keep your phone protected.

The CandyShell Flip is available in Batwing Black, GuavaGoo Pink, MoonRock Grey, and MoonSicle White .

With billions of games and entertainment apps downloaded and Apple’s new Game Center, the new iPod touch 4th Gen has firmly planted itself as the must-have handheld gaming device this fall. To support the newest member of the iPod touch family, Speck today unveiled the CandyShell GRIP, the first case that seamlessly integrates comfortable, finger-friendly gaming grips into the sleek protection and style of the award-winning hard shell, soft center CandyShell case.

“Anyone can make a big bulky gaming case, but we set out to create a case ideal for people that love gaming that would also look and work just as well as their everyday case,” said Bryan Hynecek, Lead Designer at Speck. “The new iPod touch is amazingly thin, so we knew we had to offer the extra grip and comfort gamers would appreciate without compromising protection or style, and without having to take it off when not gaming.”

The beauty of CandyShell GRIP is in its details. Ridged rubbery finger pads on the back of the case offer gamers an extra-grippy surface to hold onto their iPod touch during frantic games of Ninjatown: Trees of Doom!, while the four bumpers around the front bezel edges help lock in thumb placement over the iPod’s touchscreen so players won’t lose track of where their games’ virtual control buttons are as they strive to get their next win against a foe in Bomberman. As a member of the CandyShell family, the case’s cushiony rubberized interior and button covers insulate from fatal drops and the case’s sturdy and sleek outer hard shell offers a constant defense from life’s daily dings and scrapes while still providing iPod touch users in hand comfort. CandyShell GRIP is perfect for anyone who consistently keeps their gaming on the move with them and is available in SuperTrooper White and DarkLord Black.
