*Holiday Gift Guide* Speck CandyShell Card

Grabbed the iPhone 4S for someone for the holiday or for yourself? Now it’s time to pick a case. When choosing what to dress your iPhone 4/4S in, a good sturdy and useful case is always the way to go. Silicone tends to stretch out when it gets warm or from being constantly pulled out from pocket so I tend to stay away from them. I say go with hard plastic and go with Speck.

Speck has introduced the CandyShell Card case for iPhone 4/4S. The matte finish hard outer shell of this case protects against impacts and gives a little bit of grip, yet still slips easily in and out of your pockets. The rubbery lining absorbs shock and also extends to a bezel, which protects your screen if it falls screen-first, and gives it no-slip stability when you place it face down.

Then add the bonus feature, the CandyShell Card, lets you stash up to three cards in the built-in rubberized slot. Slide in your cards (or fold-able bills) to store them securely, and pop them out with the handy thumb release when you need them. Wallet good-bye!
