Anyone who has owned an Apple iDevice has likely owned (or at least considering owning) an iSkin case at some point. Whether you have or haven’t, the company has released another product to attraction your attention, this time in the form of the Fuze and Fuze SE for the iPhone 4/4S. “Strong protection with sexy style,” iSkin claims in the press release.
The Fuze and Fuze SE represent months of engineering and research and development, resulting in an exclusive interlocking system that fuses shock and impact protection into an elegant, low-profile package.
Unlike other hard cases, the fuze and fuze SE both feature a soft inner core that cushions the iPhone while its hard exterior absorbs impact. Both fuze models are finished to provide a sure grip on the iPhone, giving owners confidence while holding it. The fuze and fuze SE cover every vulnerable edge of the iPhone. The fuze and the fuze SE feature protected power and volume buttons, as well as a removable charging port (30-pin) cover to keep unwanted dust, dirt and spills from causing damage. In addition, the fuze SE has extended iPhone frontal protection with integrated home button coverage.
Fit and Finish
With aesthetics keenly in mind, the fuze features a modern tri-tone color scheme. It pairs a black matte-finished body with a blue, pink or grey front that’s accented with a white trim around the screen—for a look that’s akin to the sophisticated superhero. The fuze SE steps it up with an über-sophisticated black and grey color scheme that’s accented with a brushed aluminum front plate. Both cases are designed for those seeking robust protection without the bulky, industrial look.
Both the Fuze and Fuze SE are thin enough to work with many speaker docks and the Apple Universal Dock (with cradle adapters removed). As always, though, you’ll want to verify that with your particular model.
The Fuze retails for $49.99, while the Fuze SE will run you $59.99. Both models are available now at iSkin.com and will appear at exclusive iSkin retailers in the weeks to come.
