Lifeproof recently released its Frē for iPad mini. Frē for the fifth-gen iPod touch has no release date as of yet, but LifeProof’s website notes the case is coming soon.

It’s been released - received mine 2 days ago. Its really slim line compared to the other water resistant cases out there but it needs to be noted the screen protector is an intregal part of the case. It attaches via a self adhesive edge but is easy to install and does not appear to cause ‘bubbles’. The only other weakness is that you need to use an adaptor for wired headphones (not an issue for me as I generally use a BT headset). I’m like the case but it is early days - life of screen protector could be an issue as could the protective flaps over ports (made of flexible rubber).
