i was just thinking that there would be no new accessories for the original nano, but some of these even look good.  i like the brushed metal case.

The corners on the new nanos are straight so half of these cases probably won’t fit.  Probably why images all have the old nano in them.

Never mind tunetalk stereo being compatible with nano gen 2, it would be great if they’d actually ship it at all ! It’s never been available here (UK) much to my annoyance. Nor have the competing products from Griffin and Xtrememac, meaning the recording capabilities of my 5G and new nano are unusable. What’s going on?

I’m looking for a clear plastic case with click-wheel protection for the ipod nano 5th generation. At this point I will consider any case as long as it has a click-wheel protector.
    The only one I have found so for is the case made by Shades. This thing is absolute garbage. Please help.
