Tunewear for iPod touch 2G
Tunewear today announced new protective cases and clear film for the iPod touch 2G. The new silicone case, ICEWEAR, features ribbed texture for solid grip. The LCD screen is not covered, but the silicone case edges extend slightly past the surface for protection when the iPod is placed face down. TUNEFILM is provided if added screen protection is desired. All ports remain unobstructed, allowing the USB cable to be used without removing the case. Small holes are found on the back for attaching lanyards or wrist straps.
TUNESHELL provides polycarbonate hard shell protection for an iPod touch. The material is clear, leaving the colors and look of the device to be seen. The texture has been left smooth and the screen open. The case snaps onto the iPod, and leaves all controls and ports open.
TUNEFILM can be used to protect the LCD sreen, covering it with a clear film to protect against dirt or scratches. The ICEWEAR and TUNESHELL cases for the iPod touch 2G will both cost $25, while the TUNEFILM can be purchased for $14. All three products will ship sometime this month.
