iSkin's Fuze cases: Full iPhone protection in a sexy package

Months in development, the Fuze and Fuze SE are iSkin's slim take on a tough iPhone 4/4S case.

The Fuze SE ships soon and is on sale till May 24 for $49.99. iSkin

Otterbox has built a booming business out of its ultraprotective iPhone cases but today has a lot more competition -- and it's only getting fiercer.

Case in point: iSkin's just-announced Fuze case, which also comes in a special-edition model, the Fuze SE. What's nice about these is that they offer solid protection in a relatively low-profile case.

While they don't offer the same level of protection as the $80 Lifeproof case, which is waterproof and features an integrated screen cover, the overall concept and design are somewhat similar.

iSkin says the new Fuze cases took months to develop and are thin enough to be used with speaker docks and the Apple Universal Dock (with cradle adapters removed). The step-up SE model has a brushed-aluminum front plate.

The new cases aren't shipping quite yet but will be soon. The standard Fuze retails for $49.99, while the Fuze SE costs $59.99.

iSkin is offering $10 off the Fuze SE and $5 off the Fuze until May 24.
