Carbon fiber iPod cases

Belch Co. has unveiled a new a series of redesigned Carbon Fiber iPod cases, presenting a modified look for an improved finished product. All of the company's cases are made with aerospace-grade carbon fiber to protect the portable players, and feature a sleek design to avoid creating excess bulk. The iPod slides in on the right side of the case as the left side -- made from a unique form of carbon fiber -- acts as a hinge. Protective tabs on the top and bottom keep the iPod secure, and provide full access to all controls and ports. Each case ships with three clear screen and clickwheel protectors, and the company says it may offer similar cases in colored kevlar in the future. Carbon fiber cases for 30GB video iPods are due to ship in roughly two weeks, and first-generation iPod nano versions are slated for release in about a month alongside an 80GB video iPod version. Second-generation iPod nano carbon fiber cases are priced at $50.
