New XtremeMac cases

XtremeMac today announced a variety of cases intended for Apple's latest iPods, as well as the iPhone. All models are shipping in September, and begin with the Tuffshield ($15), which is actually a screen protector for iPhones and Touch 2Gs. The Tuffshield differs from most through the use of four layers, and an option of clear or anti-glare versions. The Microshield ($20) is a thin plastic shell case for the latest Nanos, Touches and iPhone, and comes bundled with two Tuffshields.

The Tuffwrap ($19-25) is a silicone case with openings for all ports and switches, but distinguished mainly through ribbed sides meant for a better grip. Solid and two-tone schemes are available, and each case comes with a Tuffshiled and a viewing stand. New compatibility has not been announced, but existing cases are shaped for Nanos, Classics, iPhones and Touches.

The Microclip ($25) is a cradle meant solely for the iPhone 3G, and uses a rotating clip to attach to belts and other straps. The interior is padded, and a Tuffshield is once again bundled by default.

The Sportwrap ($30) is a neoprene armband for iPods and iPhones, with a clear face for access controls, and a notch for wrapping earbuds.

Cases conclude with the Verona Sleeve ($25) and Holster ($35). Both are made of leather, though the latter is tailored only to the iPhone 3G, while the former fits Touches as well.
