U-Hip Pop case for iPhone 3GS/3G and iPod Touch
Company: UNIEA

Price: $29.95

“Cases that hook onto your belt have long been considered ‘nerdy’,” asserts the promotional copy for the new UNIEA U-Hip Pop leather case for iPhone 3GS/3G and iPod Touch. Given that I, too, have long been considered “nerdy,” it would seem that the U-Hip Pop case and I are a match made in heaven.

U-Suit Folio for iPhone

U-Suit Folio for iPhone
Company: Uniea

Price: 34.95

Another iPhone case arrived from Uniea review; the U-Suit Folio. Following hard on the heels of the U-Suit iPhone case, which I rated very highly, I expected another great iPhone case.

Wrong. Not even close.

Like the U-Suit, the Folio is a hard carrying case with a belt clip. The iPhone slips into the case rather snugly. Folio, however, uses a fold-over flap that covers the entire iPhone, and closes with a small magnetic latch.

When the iPhone rings, you need to flip up the fold-over flap, and pull the phone out of the case. Otherwise, you need to yank the whole affair, belt clip and all, off your belt. The iPhone is a snug fit in the Folio holster, so you’ll need to pull harder than you’d expect. This may dislodge the belt clip. Or, you may not get the phone out before the call goes to voicemail…

UNIEA iPod Case

U-Suit Leather Cases for iPods
Company: Uniea

Prices: $29.95 and $34.95 US (see below for details)

* * * * *

U-Suits from Uniea are here in a colorful range of stylish, protective cases for all new and recent iPods, plus the iPhone. Artie recently reviewed the company’s MacBook case here and gave it a high rating.

iPod U-Suits are rigid one-piece slip-in sleeves, with top, bottom, and front exposed. iPhone U-Suits are mostly open in front, to correspond to the large display area. An iPhone Folio model has a protective front flap that stays in place via a clever, gentle magnet, plus a belt clip and hole upper right rear. Card slots and dock ports are readily accessible.

I’ve been using a previous generation 60GB U-Suit to protect my new 80GB iPod Classic. The iPod slips snugly into its U-Suit, with little danger of unexpected escape. Screen visibility is acceptable through the permanently-affixed thin, clear screen cover. Click-wheel and Menu controls are easy to operate.
