Gumdrop Launches with the First 4G iPhone Cases, Before Apple; New Brand is Dedicated to Mobile Accessories for the Youth Market


Danville, California (EastBayDaily) — Apple accessories industry veteran Tim Hickman announced today the launch of Gumdrop Cases, a mobile accessories brand dedicated to the active youth lifestyle market. Gumdrop Cases is now shipping two lines of 4G iPhone cases, in anticipation of Apple’s 4G iPhone / iPhone HD announcement today.

“The Gumdrop product lines were inspired and created specifically for an active youth lifestyle that’s heavily influenced by surfer, skater, and motocross fashions,” said Tim Hickman, CEO of Gumdrop Cases. “With the 4G iPhone becoming popular with younger, more casual consumers, we see a great opportunity to not only reach out to existing iPhone accessory retailers, but also into alternative retailers like local surf and skate shops and outdoor sports retailers. We’re super pumped to be the first company with the new iPhone 4G/iPhone HD cases actually for sale!”

Gumdrop Cases are designed for youth who want to show off their personal style through their mobile accessories. Shipping now, the Gumdrop and Moto skins for the 4G iPhone complement active lives with equal parts durability and fashion. Priced from $29.95 to $34.95, the next generation iPhone skins are available exclusively on the Gumdrop Cases website at, with other retailers being announced in the coming months. Additional surf/skate inspired lines will debut in mid-June for both the 4G iPhone and iPad.

About Gumdrop Cases Gumdrop Cases launched in June 2010 from industry veteran Tim Hickman, who recently launched Hard Candy Cases, the fastest growing Apple Accessories brand in the market. Gumdrop Cases is branded for an active youth market, and will feature products for the iPhone 4G and iPad, with additional products in the pipeline.
