Griffin's new iPod cases

Griffin Technology has announced a new line of cases designed specifically for the latest iPod models unveiled yesterday in San Francisco. The iClear for the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch is a snap-on crystal-clear polycarbonate shell that still allows access to the iPod screen, ports and control surfaces. The Reflect for the iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch presents a mirrored face until you activate your iPod and its screen shines through the metallic finish. Reflect's design for the iPod touch is slightly different than the other Reflect models -- to leave the touch screen accessible, Reflect for iPod touch surrounds the front edges of the iPod touch in the same chromed, reflective polycarbonate used in other Reflect models.





The Elan Convertible for the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch is a leather flip-top case that protects the iPod screen and reverses to create a stand for hands-free use. The clear screen protector and soft microfiber lining provide all-over protection against scratches. There's also a removable clip that lets you attach your iPod to your belt or shoulder strap. The Elan Form for the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch is a hard-shell leather case, with form-fitting design bonded to protective polycarbonate.



Also new is the Streamline, a sport armband for all three models. The screen cover protects your iPod's face from scratches and dust, but is sensitive enough to allow complete navigation of click wheel or touch screen interface. It's a washable, two-way adjustable band fits any arm with a breathable fit. Streamline will be available in two sizes: one for the new iPod nano, and one for iPod classic or iPod touch.

The Courier for iPod classic and iPod touch has been redesigned with a slimmer new look and abrasion-resistant durability, using a compression-molded EVA outer casing. The case is designed to wrap onto a backpack or shoulderbag strap. It features a hidden zippered pocket for money, keys, or ID, and a second flapped pocket for your sync cable, earphones, or other small accessories

Griffin's new cases for the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch, priced between $20 and $35, will be available at major retailers nationwide in October 2007.
