Backstage: New to the queue and seriously cool

Currently in the review queue are the following items, which are taking a back seat in priority to the recently announced iLounge Buyers’ Guide 2004:

BTI’s iPod Auto/Air Charger. Haven’t played with it yet, but it looks like good news for people with iPod cases that don’t leave enough room for non-Apple Dock Connector plugs - it uses the official Apple part, rendering it totally compatible with 99% of the cases we’ve reviewed.

DLO’s new 4G Jam Jackets. Think Power Support’s Silicone Jackets plus integrated screen protection, minus Click Wheel protection, and plus a little bit of iSkin grip style on the sides and back. In decent colors, too. The Pro versions have detachable belt clips. And DLO’s Action Jacket, which is highly reminiscent of…

Marware’s full 4G lineup of neoprene and leather cases, which we have delayed reviewing for a bit too long. They’ll probably be amongst the earliest of the reviews to go up.

Reviews of iSkin’s new 4G eXo 2 and Incase’s new Leather Sleeves are done and ready to go up whenever Dennis has a free moment. And then there’s the preview version of the Buyers’ Guide… hmmmm…

Sounds great, any idea on when they’ll be up?

will you be reviewing any of Lajo’s (Xskn) new cases?

Still working on everything save the two at bottom.

Re: Lajo’s cases, I personally really like his cases and would be glad to review them as soon as we receive them.

Just want to make a personal request to get the Marware case reviews out ASAP - i’m thinking of getting one but want to wait for your observations.

Nate, duly noted, and thanks for the comment. Initial observation is that they are highly similar to the earlier versions of Marware cases we’ve reviewed. Our reviews will likely be updates to the old reviews as opposed to full-fledged new ones.

If you have a comment, news tip, advertising inquiry, or coverage request, a question about iPods or accessories, or if you sell or market products, read iLounge's Comments + Questions policies before posting, and fully identify yourself if you do. We will delete comments containing advertising, astroturfing, trolling, personal attacks, offensive language, or other objectionable content, then ban and/or publicly identify violators.
