GEAR4 debuts iPod case, touts BlueEye accessory

updated 03:50 pm EST, Fri November 16, 2007

LeatherJacket Nano case

GEAR4 has unveiled its LeatherJacket Flip case (site not updated) for Apple's latest generation iPod nano, and simultaneously announced that its BlueEye Bluetooth phone accessory is compatible with the latest iPod models. The LeatherJacket Flip is a premium leather case for Apple's new iPod nano featuring a brushed suede interior with "debossed" patterning. A 'Flip-Clip' closure covers the click-wheel when not in use, and provides full easy access when playing tracks. The case is available in black and pink for $32, and is due to ship at November's end.

GEAR4's BlueEye Bluetooth phone accessory makes as well as receives calls on an iPod, and offers plug-and-play connectivity with most Bluetooth phones. Caller ID displays on the iPod's screen for incoming calls, and the device automatically pauses during each call to resume playing after hanging up. The BlueEye supports voice dialing when paired with supported Bluetooth phones, offers auto scanning for FM radio stations, and utilizes Bluetooth 2.0 technology.

GEAR4 notes, however, that the BlueEye's screen display features are not compatible with Apple's iPod touch. BlueEye users looking to upgrade can download the new firmware from GEAR4's website.
