Yes, those are still the choices, I ordered the Speck?s PixelSkin HD today. I have the Speck GeoMetric on it http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/speck-geometric-iphone-4-case-review-30-07-2010/ and I like it a lot. I bought it from the Vodafone shop near Queens Quay. I would have preferred a cover for the cable slot but aside from that it's just what I wanted. Buttons on the sides and top are covered and I like that.

I did buy a Zagg skin thingy but decided to go naked for a change.

I've just ordered a zagg full coverage invisible shield cover direct from the USA (Seems cheaper than getting it in NZ from trademe or elsewhere). Will likely use just the front and rear covers.. and to protect the edge order an apple bumper via the app store.

sounds good :) only real advantage of trade me is that you can get it asap.

Stay away from the Zagg invisible shield. It's an over priced piece of junk. To put any skin such as the zagg on the retina screen is a crime. The orange peel effect.

If you like the skin feel fine, install it on the back but stay away from Zagg. go for best skins ever, phantom skinz or body guardz. Better cuts, easier to install, and way cheaper.

real? have you used it before? they might have changed the "formulation" but my retina display is perfect... you cant even see the orange peel unless you angle the phone so the light hits it...

it is much better than alot of my friends screen protectors which kinda give the screen a weird graininess... the zagg def has perfect clarity

I went for the Speck Pixelskin HD even though I got Best Skins Ever (BSE) on my iPhone and there's been numerous reports of bubbling the screen protector.

After using the BSE on the screen for a while though it feels a bit rubbery, I showed other people but they don't seem to notice it but it's quite noticeable when moving fast around the screen.

I really want to get some Power Support anti-glare screen protectors but can't find anywhere that sells them in NZ ><

ChrnoXIII: not putting the zagg on? > < do you have the same epic wait? 6-8 weeks?


Epic wait? I ordered it from the US when I ordered my phone and it got here a few days later, long before the phone did. I'll get around to putting it up on trademe sooner or later.

Since the back is protected by the Geo and I got tired of looking at my ipod touch screen through another layer I decided to go naked on the front this time around. So far I'm not regretting that and a week into using the Geo I still really am finding it ideal with the exception as I said of that I would prefer a cover for where the data cable goes in so it won't collect lint.

Over the years of carrying my ipod touch (s) in my pocket it hasn't been a HUGE concern but I did have to clean them out once in a while.

Edit: I do love the look of the hard cases but I have dropped my ipod touch on more than one occasion and each time the leather case I had it in saved it (and typically it landed on an end or edge) so I know I need the rubber protection my current case is offering.

Waiting for the InCase Snap Smoked. Changed from Clear to Smoked after seeing reviews on Web. Didn't want to obscure the 4's innate beauty, but after reading reviews decided the Smoke had more class. Been surviving with no case so far and just sticky plastic on back...okay so far. Mind you I don't cover my iPad either.

I purchased a cheap silicone case from Trademe, it's fine but it keeps pushing the corner of my screen protector up which is really annoying causing bubbles.

Anyone else had a similar problem?
The screen protector is installed perfect without the case or is it maybe not strong enough?
