  • (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S Bumper Case Now Available


    For those of you that remember the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S Bumper case, it was once given out as a free apology from Apple for those experiencing the antenna problem on the iPhone 4 for a limited time. The Bumper case costs $29 and comes in color flavors of black, blue, green, white, pink, and orange. Today, a new color joins that lineup – the (PRODUCT) RED version, which is a blood-red case that supports a good cause of fighting AIDS in Africa.

    The (PRODUCT) RED version of the Bumper case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S is no different from the other colored versions of the case and will fit any iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S model no matter what carrier you have. The very bright-red color is one way to get yourself noticed while using your iPhone because it just stands out so much:



    If you’ve ever used a Bumper case on your iPhone before, you may or may not have liked it. The positives of the case include that it helps shield the front and back glass from scratches because it never touches a table surface thanks to the raised-edge design of the case. In addition, it’s a minimalistic case that isn’t bulky, heavy, or ugly. Some of the negatives include sketchy drop protection, limited access to the iPhone’s ports (third party accessories don’t like the case that much), and multiple reports of the case actually scratching the stainless steel band around the phone because of the plastic interior.

    The current shipping estimate for the new colored iPhone Bumper case is approximately 4-6 business days. For $29 it is a decent case to grab and will offer you moderate-mild protection, however with a new iPhone around the corner, you shouldn’t waste your money on it unless you have no plans to get that new iPhone, which is reportedly launching next month.

    If interested, you can purchase the case from Apple's online store, from this link.

      So they wait 'til we're one month away from the new phone with a different form factor, THEN decide to release the new color? Does this make any business sense out there?

      Is it just me or does it look like vermillion rather than red?
      I'm surprises it took this long to make a bumper...

      Nah the bumper is no good, Neo Hybrid EX II is a much better looking alternative and for the around the same price it came with screen protectors for the front and back.

      hahaha...a quarter of the protection for triple the cost? I have a Griffin case that covers all but the screen and it was $2 haha! Expensive is not always top quality..its just expensive in some cases. Talk about gouging.

      Product (RED) is a scam. The RED organization spends more money on advertising their RED products than they send to the AIDS fund. Why would we need to buy something to send money to a group that uses a portion of that money (a large portion) to advertise, and then donated the rest to the real charity? Just donate to the Global Fund directly, and don't buy a Product (RED) anything.

      Same here. I found some on Amazon that are nearly identical to Apple's but for less than 1/3 the price!

      It makes total sense if they plan on keeping the same form factor.

      I think for this bumper case, $9 bucks is about right price NOT $29

      Bruv, the f@&£*#? USB cable costs a good £15-£20 here. That's around $23-$31 for a piece of wire. Screw you apple.

      It makes perfect sense. The the device is still being manufactured.. So why not? Just cuz a new device is coming out doesn't mean they stop selling accessories.

      This is a total ripoff, even for a charity.
