iPod nano 5G protective cases

Scosche, Griffin Technologies, and Belkin have all announced new and revised cases for Apple's latest fifth-generation (5G) iPod nano. The kickBACK hard-case with integrated rubber siding is developed by Scosche, and offers shock resistant protection and a hinged kickstand for widescreen viewing. It also includes an opening for the iPod nano's video camera, and comes with built-in traction nubs for improved grip on flat surfaces. Originally released in October of 2008 for the iPhone 3G, the new version can also be purchased from the company's online store and is currently priced at $24.

Griffin Technologies has introduced its latest iClear Sketch, iClear Shade, and classic iClear cases. All three models offer a polycarbonate hard-case and provide access to all ports and controls. The iClear Shade adds a graduated tint also know as an ombre finish, which enables the casing to fade from clear to dark grey. With the iClear Sketch users can choose from a wide variety of unique patterns, including Plaid, Ramp and 8-bit. All cases will be available for purchase in Fall of 2009, with the Sketch and Shade model priced at $25, and the classic set at $20. Users can also add a clip and armband to the iClear case for a total cost of $30.

Lastly, Belkin has announced the updating of its case collection to better fit the new iPod nano, iPod touch and iPod classic models. The new cases that are designed for all three models include the Leather Sleeve with Clip, Grip Pulse Duo, Clear, and Leather Folio, each providing different forms of soft and hard protection. Exclusively for the iPod touch are the Halo, Cush, Micra Flex, and Grip Ego with Hand Strap models, while the iPod nano has the Hand Band case.

Cases for both the latest iPod nano and iPod touch include the Grip Pulse, Grip Vue, and FastFit, along with both the Hue 2pc and 3pc. The new cases range in price from $20 to $30, with select styles for all iPod models available by around mid-September of 2009 in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Other styles will be released continuously until late November of this year.
