Again that clip looks very weak.

Aren’t these cases a bit much? 
Does one really need this level of protection?
What’s next?

Just what we need, another iPod case. Hey case manufacturers, how about coming up with something useful and not these me too sleeves?

I would like a nice case that could hold my iPod, PDA and maybe even my phone. Something leather, maybe like a day tmer sort of thing. I can’t be the only person who could use something like this.

To me that looks like the perfect solution for my needs, strong enough to bung in a bag travelling with a bunch of other kit and not worry about it getting crushed. Good looking, retains the IPOD look and the sideways belt clip makes perfect sense as well. Good job, I want one.

The only problem is how do I buy one in the UK? Any retailers in England stocking these things?

This case actually looks pretty decent. Too bad I already have my Vaja.

I wonder if the Griffin FM transmitter will work with the iPod in this case?
