Welcome to our new, continuously-updated First Looks - a collection of previews showing brand new iPod, iPhone and iPad accessories that we’re currently in the process of testing. Here’s what’s hot right now:
Model: iPort FS-2
Compatible: iPod 3G, 4G, 5G, iPod mini, iPod nano
Following up on its eponymous in-wall iPod docking station, iPort's FS-2 is a free standing iPod dock, featuring a built-in pre-amp and integrated Infrared receiver, plus a breakout box for unbalanced audio and video. Features such as balanced audio, RS-232 and balanced video are sold as upgrades to this model. It resizes automatically to fit iPods and minis; nano uses an included insert.
Model: The Wrap for the iPod nano
Compatible: iPod nano
Somewhat like a small leather wallet or keypurse, The Wrap surrounds your iPod nano with a genuine leather exterior, clear plastic nano sleeve, and an iridescent inner silk lining. Velcro seals the case closed. Multiple leather variants are available; our review sample has a crocodile-like texture.
This flip-open leather and fabric case comes in multiple colors, and features a snap-laden belt loop that opens to turn into an angled stand for video viewing. Different sized versions are available for 30GB and 60GB iPods.
These 10 new stickers for the iPod nano - sold individually - feature stylized, detailed artwork for the nano’s front and rear faces. Side, top, and bottom stickers aren’t included.
