Showcase nano case debuts
Contour Design today introduced the Showcase nano, its first dual layer case for Apple's second-generation iPod nano. The Showcase nano features shock-absorbing edges for for protection against bumps and knocks, while the clear front and back allow the portable player's colors to show through. The new case includes clickwheel, dock port, and headphone plug protection alongside a removable belt clip and a universal mount. The stainless steel clip fastens in four different positions, and the universal mounting system is usable with new Contour accessories currently in development. The case is hinged with a new side latch for easy access to the player, and offers playthrough protection for all three second-generation iPod nanos (2GB, 4GB, and 8GB models). The Contour Showcase nano is slated for shipment during the first week of November for $35.
