New iPod nano 5G cases from Griffin, USBfever
Griffin Technology and USBfever have both announced new cases for Apple's latest iPod nano 5G. Griffin's newest designs are the Outfit hard-shell polycarbonate case and the FlexGrip silicone case. Both cases are made to help protect the iPod nano from bumps and scratches during everyday use, and allow for full access of the devices scroll wheel, controls, connectors and screen. Outfit also keeps the iPod nano's new camera lens free for use and features an EasyDock design, which enables users to simply slide off the bottom half of the case when docking.
USBfever has launched several cases for the iPod nano 5G, starting with the Silicone, Rubberized, and Crystal case. All three cases provide access to ports and sockets, while sporting a light-weight, anti-dust design. In addition, USBfever has released two Theme hard-cases, the Blue Wave and Flowers. Both cases come with printed-on graphics and deliver the same features found in the previously listed cases. Each new case also offers full protection from scrapes and bumps.
Griffin's new cases are planned for release in Fall of 2009 and are priced at $25 for the Outfit, or $20 for the FlexGrip. The USBfever cases are available for purchase now from the company's website, and range in price from $8 to $12.
