iSkin has been well known for their line of protective electronic devices cases and they have recently released some new covers just in time for the new iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 and iPhone 4. The cases usually made from super soft silicone for iDevices are now made from brushed aluminum for the iPhone and brushed aluminum brushed/nylon for the iPad 2.
Designed specifically for the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S is slick, trendy and a perfect fit for these gadgets. The ultra slim frame protects the phones without adding bulk. The width added comes in just under 1.6mm. The design is the perfect complement to the design of the iPhone and the technology is eons away from any other design put forth by iSkin.
Aura conveniently snaps right onto the phone leaving strategically placed holes for the speakers and ports. Lightweight design omits the extra weight and bulk so often associated with phone cases. The aura skin is available in three colors so far: Graphite (a dark charcoal), Navy (metallic blue), and Silver (white).
The revo4 SE is another new skin for the iPhone 4 and 4S. Made from durable Japanese silicone this also provides for protection without the bulk. With features such as a ViSOR shield that comes with a touch friendly zone for answering calls you just cannot go wrong. This case is best used if your phone will be used in less than phone friendly environments. The revo4 SE is available in colors such as blue/black, red/black, dark brown/white, yellow/white, pink/black, and dark brown/black.
The final new skin available from iSkin is the aura2 case for the iPad 2. It provides full body protection in a slim packaging and includes Smart Cover functionality. Although there are a number of folio cases to choose from on the market none are as sturdy, thin or of such high quality. The aura2 enables easy conversion from a multi-angled viewing display for viewing television and movies to an ergonomic typing stand.
Made from brushed-metallic nylon with a microfiber lining the Aura2 will keep the screen of your iPad 2 safe and clean. The extra card pockets so thoughtfully included is a great place to store papers and other items that you wish to store within easy reach. It also includes an inner pocket that is specifically designed to provide protection against wireless identity theft. Easily store your credit cards! The aura is available in navy for now but there will be new colors released soon.
Skins for the iPhones will cost around $39.99 while the skin for the iPad will cost $99.99.
