iPod, notebook accessories
iSkin has launched several new products to kick off the new year which include the tokidoki iPod Vibes for iPod nano, the Duo for second-generation iPod nano (shown at right), SoHo LapTop Sleeves, and four new CERULEAN accessories. The new line of tokidoki iSkin Vibes are designed specifically for Apple's first- and second-generation iPod nanos, featuring various designs while protecting the portable players inside a scratch- and shock-resistant capsule. iSkin's Duo protects Apple's second-generation iPod nano with a dual-layer design that combines colored anodized impact-resistant VISOR with a shock absorbing silicone layer alongside a clear screen protector. iSkin's Vibes as well as its Duo cases are due to ship later this month for $25 and $30, respectively. The CERULEAN products are due to ship in the first quarter of 2007, with pricing to be announced.
iSkin's four new CERULEAN offerings include the RS -- which connects an iPod to a docking speaker or home Hi-Fi stereo system, TX -- connecting an iPod or computer to instantly transfer sound to any CERULEAN RX-equipped speaker system, F1 -- a stereo Bluetooth headset that weighs less than 40 grams, and X1 -- a set of earphones that offer a balance of in-ear speaker technology to deliver dance club-like sound. iSkin is also previewing its SoHo, a messenger sleeve made from a durable synthetic designed to tote a 13-inch MacBook or 15-inch MacBook Pro. The SoHo is also slated for shipment in the first quarter of 2007 at an unspecified price.
"We are delighted to be offering so many new products at once," said iSkin's Julie Lee. "We keep expanding our product line not just to meet our customers' practical needs, but also to satisfy their desire for accessories that are fun, stylish, and sophisticated. Our products are designed to be as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional."
