Scosche has announced the upcoming release of several new cases, chargers, in-vehicle mounting devices and clock radios, designed for the iPhone 3G and Apple's newest iPod models. The kickBACK is a hard shell case for the iPhone 3G that features two interchangeable back panels, one smooth and one with a hinged kickstand for landscape viewing. Each case also comes with a screen protector, and two additional sets of rubber traction feet. The case can be pre-ordered for $30.
The reCOIL is a car charger that works with both iPods and iPhones, and features a retractable four-foot cord, minimizing the hassle of keeping cords out of the way. The charger is available for $30. Another charging option, the passPORT, is due at the end of October. The device plugs into the bottom of the iPhone 3G, Nano 4G or Touch 2G, and allows older chargers devices to work with the new players. The passPORT can be pre-ordered for $30.
Several new devices have been introduced for mounting the iPhone 3G in a car, including the MTNAV Portable GPS Nav-Mat Dash Mount ($40), IUHC4 Mobile Dock-IT Mount Kit ($35), IUHW5 Mobile Grip-IT Windshield Mount Kit ($30) and the IUH3 Mobile Grip-IT Vent Mount Kit ($20). Each product provides users with a different method to mounting their iPhone in locations that are easily visible. Users should check with local laws before purchasing a mount as some places prohibit windshield mounts.
Scosche has also released a new iPod clock radio that allows users to wake up to their iPod, the radio or a buzzer. The clock features one iPod/iPhone compatible dock that will charge either device through use of an AC adapter. The clock is currently available for $60.
