    Hey guys, sent an email to Switcheasy to see when they would be releasing cases for the iPhone 4 and I got this reply:

    I can't wait. I loved the RebelSerpent I had for the 3GS and want to see what they have in store for the iPhone 4.

    I did the same thing last week and got the same email. I hope they come out with some amazing cases (which I'm sure they will :D )

    I have never found a better case for the iPhone 3G/3GS. They were the best cases I ever owned. The CapsuleRebel is great! Can't wait to see what they have in store.

    I agree... whatever they release will most likely be excellent and worth the wait. I went through 5 or 6 iphone cases until I got the rebel serpeant and I've never even considered changing it out since I got it. Can't WAIT for their iPhone 4 line up

    I've had Capsule Neo (my favorite), Capsule Rebel Serpent, and Colors, all have been exemplary. Sold both my and my wife's 3G two weeks ago in brand-new condition as a direct result of SwitchEasy's awesomeness.

    I'm definitely down for whatever they offer.

    Thanks for sharing! I had the Capsule Rebel for my 3GS and have been eagerly awaiting Switcheasy's i4 cases :)

    I like the Colors for when I'm camping, concert, bar.... Anyplace where drops could happen or conditions aren't good. I love how it feels. Not much bulk added yet I could throw it at the wall n it would be ok. I want a dark purple one!!!!

    I sent an email to them on the 27th and got a similar response...
    I had an iskin silicon case and an arctic capsule rebel for my 3gs. I actually preferred the iskin case over the capsule rebel because I felt that I had a better grip on the iskin case, it felt more "sticky", the rebel felt a little slicker, and not surprisingly the iskin case fit better in iskin clip (which makes sense, since they made it to work together) I also didn't like that the power button was hard to push in on the rebel than on the iskin case. Hopefully the stiffness issue will be better with the new case...


    However, after seeing pictures of the RebelM I really want to give it a shot (I hope they make a version for the i4), it also appears that it would protect the back better on the i4 than a regular silicon case. I might also pick up an iskin case once they come out but they said it might not be available until august.

    Maybe they're getting too many emails.

    I don't understand why these companies didn't have cases out in time for launch? Do they not get models to build their cases around, or did they just have to wait for an actual phone to make a model?

    Here was their response, seems like they just got the phone

    Thank you for visiting SwitchEasy.com!

    I got the same response, but it just strikes me as odd that other companies got a mock up or something and were able to get cases out a day or two after the launch (maybe even some on the same day?).

    Other companies rushed development and are having issues with the cases not fitting properly.

    Switcheasy is very thorough with their cases, both in design and construction. that is why i chose them in the past. i'd rather they take their time and do it right the first time. other first release cases were not that well thought out or tested (flash issue for example).

    but i need some case no later than July 24 regardless.

    I bought my wife an ifrogz case which is decent but it cost 30 bucks and didn't come with anything else but the case (no protective films, screen cleaners etc...). I like how the switcheasy come with everything but the kitchen sink.

    I can't wait for a switch easy ace for the iphone 4 to come out. The rebel serpent was the best case ever.
