Speck iPhone 5 Cases Offer Wallets, Kickstands and Color
Speck offers a selection of iPhone 5 cases in the designs and colors found in their earlier iPhone 5 cases.
The new Speck iPhone 5 cases are available online and will soon be available in retail locations where other Speck products are sold.
Speck sent over a sampling of the new iPhone 5 cases for a quick hands on, and I am immediately pulled towards the SmartFlex View and SmartFlex Card iPhone 5 cases.

Speck offers 10 different iPhone 5 cases, available in may color options and combinations. Finishes range from smooth plastic to textured and even fabric finishes.
The Speck SmartFlex View is an iPhone 5 case with a retractable kickstand. Simply pull the kickstand out of the bottom of the iPhone and lean it in portrait mode for a FaceTime call, or in landscape to watch a movie on the larger widescreen display of the iPhone 5.
When I was done with the kickstand, the case retracts it back into itself automatically, though I did need push it slightly to seat it flush with the case. The case doesn’t add significant bulk and the kickstand hides well.
The SmartFlex Card holds three cards and or cash in the iPhone 5 case, allowing me to leave home without a traditional wallet. Hopefully once PassBook can handle all of my gift cards I will be able to ditch my wallet altogether. I like that this case holds three cards, so I can carry my ID, a debit card and a credit card. Many cases only carry two cards, which is too limiting for my daily use.
Speck also sent along the CandyShell Flip, an iPhone 5 case with a bottom that flips back for docking. Users may find this handy when paired with the yet to be released Lightning adapter.
The Speck CandyShell Grip iPhone 5 case includes textured areas to improve grip. The grip is lined up for gamers so that fingers can grip the device easily while leaving thumbs free to control the game.
Speck also sent a FabShell Burton case for the iPhone 5. This case includes a fabric finish with Burton inspired colors and patterns. This case comes in a variety of colors.
The Speck iPhone 5 cases start at $29.95 and go up to $39.99. Speck is shipping these cases today.
