Tunewear 5G iPod cases
Tunewear today announced new cases for the fifth generation ("5G") video iPod. The new brings the Icewear line of high-density transparent silicone cases to the new iPod 5G digital music players. The Icewear series uses the same high density silicone found in diving masks which allows for both scratch protection and a clear view of the iPod 5G's original color. The caseo ofers access to all ports including the headphone jack, dock connector, hold switch and click wheel. It is available in both 30GB and 60GB models and includes Tunefilm protective coverings for the screen, clickwheel, and back. Icewear 5G will ship in November for $25. Tunewear also announced that it would produce a 5G version of its Prie Ambassador, a versatile genuine leather case that can be attached to a belt loop or strap, around your neck (strap not included), or as a protective case (by removing all the hooks, straps, and clips). The Prie Ambassador for iPod 5G will be available in November for $50.
