iPod protection updates
USBfever and Case-mate have both announced new protection options to coincide with the new iPod releases. USBfever is now offering a new silicone case that has been molded to fit the fourth-generation iPod nano. It is said to protect an iPod's body against bumps and scratches, while not inhibiting the use of any of its controls. It is being sold for $10, and is available in 10 different colors, including: pink, solid white, smokey black, purple, green, red, blue, light blue, light green and solid black.
Case-mate has updated its Clear Armor line with designs to fit each of the new iPods. Clear Armor is a film which wraps around the entirety of a device, protecting it from scratches and dust. Three new versions have been produced, specifically for the second-gen Touch, 120GB Classic, and the fourth-gen Nano. The Touch and Classic editions retail for $20, while the Nano adaptation is available for $15.
