Griffin case updates
Griffin has introduced several new cases to go with Apple's newest iPod models. The AeroSport is a brand new product from Griffin, designed mainly to fit comfortably on an arm. The case encloses the entirety of an iPod within a protective cover, while providing full access to all controls. The case can be clipped to the provided armband, a belt, or removed for carrying around in a pocket. The armband features a cord-wrap system, and has reflective accents to help with visibility at dusk or dawn. The AeroSport is going to be available for the Nano 4G, Touch 2G, and Classic.
The Elan Convertible is a flip-top case with a leather cover which protects against dust, bumps and scratches. The flip-top has been made removable, which allows the case to turn into a pocketable slipcase with a built-in screen protector. The Elan Convertible will be available for the Nano 4G, Touch 2G and Classic.
The FlexGrip is a silicone cover for the Nano 4G and Touch 2G. The two-color case is smooth in front, with contrast-colored waves carved into the back. The Touch variant includes a static-peel screen protector. The FlexGrip will be available in two-packs of black and red.
The iClear is a clear, hard-shelled plastic case. It provides full access to an iPod's controls, and will be available for the Nano 4G, Touch 2G and Classic.
The Nu Form is an impact-resistant hard-shell case meant solely for the Touch 2G. The case comes with a screen protector, and utilizes an EasyDock design that allows the bottom to be slid off for docking.
All of the new cases are set to be released "soon," and will be priced at $30 for the AeroSport and Elan Convertible, $20 for the FlexGrip and iClear, and $25 for the Nu Form.
