Shades Classic, Nano cases

ShadesCases has begun selling two new case lines to complement Apple's latest iPods. The company's new Classic case is made of soft polyurethane, and is less than 0.02 inches thick, reducing bulkiness. The case is also notable for having a clear screen cover, and embossed clickwheel protection, ensuring that users still know where controls are located without looking. Openings are present for the Hold switch, headphone jack and dock port; Shades notes that because the case is so thin, a Classic can be attached to Apple's universal dock without trouble, or combined with accessories like the Griffin iTrip. Other docks may require pulling up the case slightly.

Shades' new third-generation Nano case is identical in many regards, but exposes slightly more of the player due to the need for one large opening instead of several smaller ones. The case is also specifically compatible with numerous Nano accessories, such as armbands. The Nano case is being sold for $15 in nine different colors, including black, blue, orange and violet; the Classic case costs $17, and comes in 10 colors such as red, green and silver.
