Kroo Cayman, Leather, Minimalist and Nanostruct Cases for iPod nano

These four new cases for the iPod nano are either entirely or partially made from inexpensive leather, and frequently accented with metal. Each is available in multiple colors. Of the cases, the metal and leather combination case Cayman is the most interesting; the others look like many generic iPod cases we've seen before.

Kroo Forza, Melrose, Struct Leather Cases for iPod 5G

These three new cases use inexpensive leather to cover substantial portions of a fifth-generation iPod, and other than their variety of colors are highly similar to existing designs we've already seen in the marketplace. Of the designs, Forza - the case with a pop-out rear piece that serves as a 5G iPod stand - is the most interesting.

Muff Designer Series for iPod

This new series of Designer Muffs feature artwork from Australian designers, and are billed as limited editions by manufacturer Muff. Handmade from polyester with a polar fleece interior and foam padding, the cases are cut from a large canvas and are somewhat different from case to case - Ghosties (shown), Skulls, and Satisfied are currently available, with Kanga-Kamo coming soon. Muff's randy packaging - inappropriate for younger audiences in some countries - is some of the most interesting we've yet seen for an iPod accessory.
