iPhone 4 Bumpers

Apple's minimalist cases for their iPhone 4


Yesterday’s iPhone 4 announcement has us counting the days until the beautifully-designed phone with myriad new features and an upgraded operating system comes out.

One underplayed part of the announcement furthers Apple’s foray in to the case game. Bumpers, pictured here, are simple rubber protectors that hug the steel frame of the new iPhone 4. The front and back of the device are made from super-hard glass, so now only the frame—which doubles as the phone’s antennae—needs protection.

Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but Bumpers will be available in white, black, blue, green, orange, or pink to offer a bit of minimal Apple-style personalization.
