iphone 4 bumper case

With Apple’s recent offer of free bumper cases for the iPhone 4 in an effort to put an end to the Death Grip complaints, many folks were wondering how badly such a move would affect Apple’s pockets.

If you’re still deciding whether you should pick up the iPhone 4 or not, check out our in-depth review of it.
