The new iPhone 4 Elan Frame case from Griffin wraps the sides of your gadget in a thin (but tough) ring of impact-resistant polycarbonate layered with a “composite-look premium synthetic material.” (See photo above.)
The back and face of your iPhone are open, with edges protected, and ports and controls accessible. We like it because the handsome Apple design shines through.
The only part we don’t like is that you have to remove the Elan Frame’s bottom section to charge your iPhone. Lazy? You betcha.
