Difusi has introduced four new leather cases for the iPod nano (with video): the nanoSleeve, nanoValet, nanoFlip, and nanoProp. All four cases are handcrafted from leather, stainless steel, and shatterproof plastics, and offer full access to the nano’s ports and controls. The nanoValet features a fold-down, button-closure front flap, and interchangeable accessories. It sells for $25. The nanoFlip features a flip-up front flap, interchangeable accessories, and also sells for $25. The nanoProp features a similar design to that of the nanoFlip, but adds a colored racing stripe to the right side of the case, as well as a removable stainless steel case stand. It sells for $40. Finally, the nanoSleeve features a sleeve-style design, interchangeable accessories, and sells for $20. Accessories for the cases include a shatterproof belt clip, removable stainless steel clip holder, ClearGuard screen, full body and wheel protection, a cotton lanyard, and a stand. All four difusi cases for iPod nano (with video) are available for pre-order now; the cases are expected to begin shipping next week.

Is it just me….or is it REALLY weird for a company to design a prop case that is not shown correctly propped in any picture on their website?  The only “propped” picture has the nano propped inward, which is not viewable to a user (this is the same picture iLounge has thumbnailed).

This doesn’t inspire me with confidence about the thought/design process of that company ....

Beware ! After reading this http://ilounge.com/index.php/news/comments/difusi-releases-new-ipod-cases/ I have ordered a Nano Valet Rev 2 from DIFUSI on the 2nd October 2006. One year and a dozen of mail later I have not received the case !

Difusi does not respond to alligations in forums. We have a contact form at http:www.difusi.com.

As for “andricop” ordering a discounted 9.00 ipod case, refund was sent twice. There is little more that we can do. Sorry your having such difficulty with us.

We really do like the French. Really.

Difusi (Usually) does not respond to allegations in forum settings. We do have a contact form at http:www.difusi.com

As for “andricop” ordering a discounted $11.00 ipod case, a refund was sent twice.

Is there something we missed? There is little more that we can do. Sorry your having such difficulty with us.

As for the Prop case? Do you read our copy?

“The Recer, is a new kind of accessory that goes beyond “belt rider” or the “hanging on a thread” design. We’ve designed a new optional accessory to “Prop” your nano in upright position for hands-free viewing of music videos, television shows or movies. This will be announced soon.”

Something about This optional accessory will be announced soon?

We are bustin our ##### to bring you high quality cases at great prices….... A little patience - PLEASE.

We love the feedback, why not try our response form so we can improve the site.

Other than my rant, thanks for bringing the issues to our attention. Just wish you would send email or fill out the forms provided on the site.

I am also sending you a free case for your troubles.

Thanks for being understanding - (Paypal is really a pain in the ###)
