Mophie Ratchet for iPods
iPod accessory manufacturer Mophie today unveiled the Ratchet 360° Belt Clip Swivel case for the iPhone, iPod touch, 3G Nano and Classic. The case includes a Base Case silicone sleeve, which the Ratchet then tightly grips from the sides, and pivots to store the device at any angle. Mophie offers the Ratchet 360° in two color combinations: pink/black, and grey/black, with a clear Base Case. It is currently selling for $20 for the iPod nano and Classic, while the iPhone and Touch model sell for $30.
"With Ratchet, we've given consumers a wide array of options to carry their iPods and iPhones," said Ross Howe, Sales and Product Development Director for mStation and mophie. "You can clip it to your belt, pocket, backpack, etc. providing easy access to your media no matter what you're doing, and because the Ratchet and Base Case are designed for each other, you never have to remove your iPod from one to use the other."
