Nano 4G cases on display
New evidence appears to support the existence of a fourth-generation iPod nano, reports say. A company called Hama is displaying a series of alleged Nano 4G cases at the IFA electronics expo in Berlin, which runs until September 3rd. The cases notably match the design of a Nano revealed by Digg founder Kevin Rose, which would return to a tall shape but with an extended vertical display.
Hama's cases are divided into three different models, beginning with a silicone sleeve, which is said to come in blue, black, white and pink colors, and already be selling at a price of €10. The second -- for which no prices or release dates are available -- is described as a chrome plastic case, with mirrored screen protection that nevertheless reveals the LCD when a Nano is active. The company is lastly marketing a leather case, which should go on sale within seven weeks for €17.
