FlipStand, iStyle for iPod
Speck Products has begun shipping the case. Both cases are designed for Apple and HP's fourth generation iPod (iPod with Click Wheel). The all clear FlipStand provides "the most protection available while allowing easy access to the scroll wheel and song control buttons. Flip open the scroll wheel door to change music selections, then flip it all the way back and it becomes a desktop stand." The FlipStand features a built-in belt clip and includes a custom spacer to accomodate both the 20GB and 40GB models. It is available now for $30. The iStyle ($35) offers easy access to the song controls, headphone, and FireWire jacks as well as includes plastic shield to protect the iPod screen.
