2010 Apple product poll closes, protection poll begins

With over 4,600 votes from iLounge readers, our latest poll, “Heading into 2010, what potential Apple product are you most looking forward to?” has ended. Readers had a choice between the rumored Apple Tablet, the fourth-generation iPhone, the fourth-generation iPod touch, a second-generation Apple TV, the sixth-generation iPod nano, a seventh-generation iPod classic, a fourth-generation iPod shuffle, or some other unknown product.

With 42% of the vote, the Apple Tablet—rumored to have an upcoming debut on January 27th—topped all other potential 2010 Apple products. The fourth-generation iPhone was second, with 34% of the vote, followed by the fourth-generation iPod touch with 11%, the seventh-generation iPod classic with 4%, and the second-generation Apple TV with 3%. Brining up the rear were the sixth-generation iPod nano and other with 2% each, and the fourth-generation iPod shuffle, which received just one percent of the vote. Thanks for all your responses!

Our latest poll focuses on device protection. We’d like to know: do you keep you iPod or iPhone protected? Whether you own an iPhone, iPod classic, touch, shuffle, or nano, we want to hear from you. Our new poll, “Do you keep your primary iPod or iPhone in a case or film?” lets you answer that question. As always, you can find the iLounge Poll in the far left-hand column of the main iLounge.com home page. Cast your vote today!

I keep all seven of my iPhones in invisashields underneath silicon cases.  Yes, I’m OCD.

tough to answer this one…I sometimes have a case on my iPhone, sometimes not.  sometimes it’s a super minimal Power Support Air jacket, sometimes it’s a Mophie Juice Pack Air.  When I’m not using a case, I really appreciate the design of the iPhone more - it FEELS better in my hand. I love iLounge’s producet reviews, but their uber-conservative approach to cases and protection is a little over the top. The full protection cases take much of the beauty away from the phone.

I hate using a case but I do. I don’t care about scratches or wear and tear… in fact, I kind of like it when my stuff looks a little battle damaged… but all of that said, I was just too paranoid to not use one. If you drop your iPhone and it breaks, it costs $500 to replace it. That’s just too much for me to risk it…

I do sometimes wonder just how effective a case really is.

I would love for some website, maybe you guys to run a test like this…

Take an iPhone, and drop it 4 feet onto concrete over and over again until it breaks. Make note of how long it takes.

Then repeat the test with various cases to see what ind of difference they make.

Part of me wonders if a case really even helps that much.

I used to always use hard cases in the past, but with the iPhone 3GS’s slick plastic back, I decided to go “naked”.  The slimness of a case-less iPhone feels much better in my front pocket.

Back when I had an iPod video 5g I used a case because the iPod scratched so easily, But now that I have an iPod Nano 4g I haven’t even bought a case. I’ve Had is since June and it only has a couple of small scratches on the back much more durable than the old plastic iPods. However, if I get an iPod Touch than I will most likely put it into a case.

I keep ALL my iPods in a case with a screen film protector!

Sure it has some scratches but that’s usually the time when I first get it then wait awhile before I get the case and film online.

Otherwise, all most iPods are in very good condition and it still works!

Though I’ll need new batteries for the older gen iPods though!
