It's hardly the revelation of the century as Pocket-lint already knew that they were coming, but we promised you we'd keep you updated and hey, we at Pocket-lint like to stick to our word so here goes....

The official Angry Birds iPhone 4 and iPod touch cases have now officially launched (that's a whole lot of official goings on), and crash landed into UK shops.

A perfect stocking filler, the cases are available in three versions, red bird, yellow bird, or King Pig.

They are polycarbonate cases have a clip-on design allowing full access to all ports and controls, and the camera hole.

It should also protect your phone from the odd bashing, although it's unlikely that they'd survive a big fat red bird being catapulted at them at full force.

The RRP is £24.99, but HMV is selling them for £10 less than this. They will also be available in the O2 store.
