Speck iGuy mini
announced today its latest iPod accessory: the iGuy mini. Like its larger sibling, the iGuy mini is a fully function iPod case and toy. The launch of iGuy (for full size iPods) in May "brought on an onslaught of sales, press and publicity for Speck Products- the initial stock of thousands was sold out within two weeks." Since the the iGuy launched, iPod mini owners "have been anticipating the release of iGuy for mini," said Tim Hickman, general manager of Speck Products. "The iGuy mini is even more portable than his big brother. The smaller size makes it much lighter and easier to carry around." The case includes a tough, removable screen protector, and enables full access to the control, headphone plug and hold switch. The iGuy is designed to fit both iPod minis, and retails for $35. Speck encourages iGuy fans to send in pictures of their iGuy's "adventures."
