Hard Candy's iPod touch 4 cases revealed

Hard Candy broke their iPod touch 4 cases loose, and they seem to follow what we’ve heard so far. There’s that camera on the top-left corner as well as a spot for a microphone, not an LED flash, on the back.  Also check out that funky diagonal on the 30-pin docking bay.

Hard Candy says they are already in full production and should have them ready for launch (below).  Thank you Mr. Devine?


August 31, San Francisco, Ca. – Hard Candy Cases continues the tradition of bringing quality Apple-centric products to market first with protective accessories for the iTouch 4G currently in production.  The new cases are set to ship prior to Apple’s expected launch date in September, allowing consumers to have quality protection as soon as the device becomes available.

“Our sources learned the specs for the newest iTouch 4G about 30 days ago, and we’re happy to announce that over the weekend, we finished the tooling process – which will allow us to be first to market with products that fit the new device and look great at the same time,” said Tim Hickman, founder of Hard Candy Cases.  “This is the third launch that Hard Candy Cases has beat other manufacturers to market for Apple products – starting with the iPad and iPhone 4, and now the iTouch 4G. We look forward to continuing the tradition.”

The latest line of Hard Candy Cases Apple protective gear is the Street Skin for the iTouch 4G.  Priced at $29.95, the cases feature a ruggedized, rubber (TPU) body and will begin shipping in mid-September, just prior to the expected iTouch launch. The popular Bubble Slider line will also be available for the iTouch 4G as well.  The cases can be pre-ordered at

Hard Candy Cases continues to create durable products for the newest Apple mobile devices with designer product lines for the MacBook, iPad, iPhone 4G and iTouch 4G available to view and order at
