New Speck cases at MWSF
Speck has unveiled a new lineup of cases at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. The new cases are designed for Apple's second-generation iPod nano and iPod shuffle, as well as the MacBook and MacBook Pro. Speck has said it will also launch a limited edition Macworld 2007 blue version of its SeeThru hard shell for both the MacBook and MacBook Pro, which will remain on sale at the booth for $40. Speck's newest additions include the Active Sport Armband Lite for iPod nano, a custom neoprene armband designed for physically active iPod owners; TouchSkin 2 Touch for iPod nano to provide enhanced protection that includes 'DropGuard' shock absorbing technology; and SeeThru Lucid for iPod nano serving as a clear hard shell armor for the iPod nano that shows off the device in its original form. All MacBook and MacBook Pro products are available now, according to Speck, while the new second-generation iPod nano and iPod shuffle cases will ship in the first quarter of 2007.
The company also announced its TechStyle Shuffle Puck for iPod shuffle, a case designed to keep the iPod shuffle safe as well as tangle-free; its SeeThru Hard Shell for MacBook and MacBook Pro offering protection for the notebooks via sturdy polycarbonate plastic available in clear as well as red; and the Canvas Sport for MacBook as well as MacBook Pro inspired by classic sneakers, offering additional security for notebooks via a canvas body and rubber edges.
