    Hi! I am going to purchase an iPod Touch 4th Generation in a few days, and I am adamant on protecting it as soon as I get it. I have been looking at a few cases, and have narrowed it down to my two favourites; the Switcheasy Rebel and the Speck Candyshell (both in white).

    I have currently heard nothing bad about the Rebel, though I am not 100% keen on the back (but I am growing to like it more). I am also concerned about the bottom, does it become saggy like the iPhone 3G/S version did?
    I have heard that the iPhone 4 version of the Candyshell develops an 'eraser' effect where the rubber 'bezel' can peel off. However, I do not know if this happens on the iPod Touch version (the white moonshine one).

    If anyone has these cases I would be very grateful if you could provide some feedback as I do not want to spend £20 unless I am sure that it is what I want.

    Also, if anyone has any other cases that they recommend more than these two, please can you share your thoughts on them? (Not the Otterbox cases please, I really dislike those!)

    Thanks in advance! :)

    EDIT: Screen protectors and other accessories do not matter to me, as I already have a Power Support matte screen protector for the 2G iPod that I shall drill a circular hole in for the camera! (hopefully that works!) ;)

    From my experience, screen shields won't work. The 2G iPod touch has a slightly wider display, so as a result by using these screen shields on the 4G iPod touch, there will be some excess on the sides. You can try for yourself if you like.
