Our very own staff author Jessica Cam Wong loves her iPod Touch. She does everything with it. I would guess that for someone who uses their iPod Touch so much, a good case would definitely make huge difference. We’ve seen our fair share of iPhone cases, some good and some were pretty bad. Luckily, the market for iPod Touch cases isn’t as saturated as it is for the iPhone. Today, we’ll be taking a look at one of the best iPod Touch cases available — the Speck CandyShell Case for the iPod Touch 4G.

We’ll be handing out 5 CandyShell cases this week so join our giveaway right after the review.

Right off the bat, I’d like to state that these CandyShell cases are pretty glam. They’re more suited for our female readers, I’d say. The case comes in a variety of colours and in the traditional Speck spirit, they’re named quite dramatically — BatWing Black, MoonSicle White, JokersWild Purple, ChaCha Aqua, AquaBerry Blue, BubbleMaker Pink, PaleMoon Grey, CottonCandy Blue, PartyPegasus Purple, PixieStick Pink, DarkLord Black, MoonRock Grey and LoveHate Pink. All of them are priced at $34.95 with free shipping within the US.

The case has all the qualities that I usually look for — it sports a hard, solid, polycarbonate, exterior that covers the back and bevels over the front screen; it’s got a soft, perforated, rubbery inner lining and silicon button covers; the sync connector and earphone jack are unobstructed. And despite the fact that it it has two (polycarbonate and rubber lining) layers, it still manages to maintain a pretty low profile and adds just the right amount of thickness to the iPod Touch to allow a proper grip.


The CandyShell case for the iPod Touch isn’t as rigid as the its brethren, the CandyShell for the iPad and iPhone. In fact, this case is pretty flexible and slips on and off the iPod Touch without too much drama.

It’s also pretty low maintenance. There aren’t any small ridges that can collect dust or grime. It’s made out of plastic so you’ll be able to wash it with soap and running water if it gets too icky.

We’re giving 5 CandyShell Cases for the iPod Touch 4G. It’s an awesome case and if you want it, join our giveaway.
