ATLANTA, Feb. 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Candy, a new product line from Birmingham, Al.-based OCG Products, confirmed today that its Case Sets fit both the Verizon and the AT&T iPhone 4. Despite the minor design tweaks between the new Verizon iPhone 4 and the original AT&T model, Tech Candy Cases serve both phones equally well, providing a soft, cashmere silicone-based Inner Wrap as well as a hard, polycarbonate Outer Shell to provide durable protection with a high-design look. The result: the best of both worlds for Apple lovers, no matter their service company loyalty.

"Since Verizon announced that the iPhone 4 would be available beginning last Thursday, people have been scrambling to find cases that will fit. I'm pleased to say that Tech Candy's cases will," stated April Mraz, founder and design diva of OCG Products, Inc., makers of Tech Candy Cases.

"Based on specs published by Apple for the Verizon iPhone 4, we swiftly modified our design before any product was delivered to our warehouse to accommodate both the AT&T (GSM) and Verizon (CDMA) phones. Therefore, Tech Candy Case Sets will fit both phones," Mraz continued. "Consumers won't need to worry if they have a new or old version of our product like our competitors; all of our products on the market will work with both iPhone 4 models. Our Case Sets are not only one of the few case options currently available to fit both models, Tech Candy is the only case we know of that allows access to the 'mute' button on both phones, while also covering and protecting the '+' and '-' volume buttons."

Last month, Tech Candy unveiled its Jet Set Collection, an innovative silicone-based system of coordinating soft and hard covers for the Apple iPhone 4 and iPad. Finally, an option for the tech savvy who are also style conscious, the Jet Set Collection by Tech Candy marries function with fashion, allowing the iPhone 4 and iPad to long last become accessories in their own right. This inaugural collection features four designs – Barcelona, Bordeaux, New York, and Shanghai – that are based on architectural details around the world.

For those who want a soft case and a hard case, too, Tech Candy is the first to give the consumer the best of both worlds. Their dual-protection mix and match Case Sets:

  • Pair an Inner Wrap with an Outer Shell in fresh new colors like Papaya, Green Apple, Chocolate, Buttercream, Aquamarine, and Slate, to match one's look du jour.
  • Allow consumers to interchange their Inner Wrap or Outer Shell with any of Tech Candy's case designs.
  • Offer customized, coordinated screen patterns, available on www.TechCandyCases.com , to further complement each case set and complete the look.
  • Resist against impact with stunningly good looks.
  • Provide clear access to all ports, buttons and functions on each device.
  • Have absolutely no paint to fade, scratch or rub off.
  • Are easy to care for. Simply wash with soap and water.

Tech Candy's Inner Wraps are made of fine cashmere silicone – the most durable, food-grade silicone available. This material offers a silky, sexy soft-touch finish, yet is "grippy, not slippy". Each Case Set's Outer Shell is made of a protective and smoothly polished space-age polycarbonate.

Tech Candy's three-piece Case Sets for iPads – available in the Barcelona and Bordeaux designs – retail for $45.99 and include two solid-color Inner Wraps and one fashionably patterned Outer Shell. iPhone 4 Case Sets, available in the Barcelona, Bordeaux, New York and Shanghai designs, retail for $29.99 and similarly include two solid-color Inner Wraps and one patterned Outer Shell. Individuals may purchase Tech Candy cases through their website, at www.TechCandyCases.com , and the cases will soon be sold soon in stores nationwide.
