Tempo, iVault iPod cases

Griffin Technology today announced unveiled three new additions to its case lineup for Apple's iPod: the Courier for fifth-generation iPods as well as iPod nanos, Tempo for the second-generation iPod shuffle, and iVault for iPod nano. The Courier is a carrying case for Apple's fifth-generation iPod and iPod nano that includes separate, detachable cases to fit either model. Users slip the iPod into its appropriate case and drop the the device into the Courier carrier. Courier is designed around an adjustable wrap that attaches to the carrying strap of a backpack or shoulder bag, and includes pockets for carrying cables as well as adapters. The Courier is made from Cordura as well as leather, and features a reflective trim to improve visibility of the iPod at night. Courier is available for $30, while Tempo and iVault are priced at $15 and $25, respectively.

The Tempo for iPod shuffle is lightweight and machine-washable, coming with a one-size-fits-all armband that adjusts to fit any arm. The case includes Griffin's patented clip design to hold the iPod firmly in place, integrating a cord-wrap that manages cable slack to prevent tangles. Like the Courier, the Tempo features reflective trim to improve visibility at night, and is available in black or gray.

Griffin's iVault (shown at right) is a full metal jacket for the iPod nano that slips over the player and snaps closed to protect the device. iVault's two halves are held together with strong magnets, according to Griffin, while an integrated cover protects both the screen and the click wheel from scratches or dings. An included rubber plug closes the port at the bottom until users need to access the dock connector, and the iVault works with first- as well as second-generation iPod nanos.
