PDO TopSkin, power gear
Accessory maker PDO has confirmed that its TopSkin case for the iPhone 3G, first announced in late June, is now shipping. The case uses a form-fitting, translucent design, and provides openings to key areas such as the camera, touchscreen, vibrate button and microphone. Black, blue, pink and white colors are being sold for $20.
The company has further announced a new pair of chargers, the PowerUP Wall and the PowerUP Car. The former is equipped with two USB ports, allowing it to charge two devices simultaneously, and additionally comes with an extra iPod/iPhone cable so the original can be left at home. The Car model integrates this cable into its design, which restricts it to one device at a time; the other end, though, plugs directly into a vehicle's power port. Both chargers should ship in August for $20 each.
