Looks just like the first Apple case.  I really liked that case, but then it started getting old having to always take it out and mess with the scroll wheel.  Waiting for Contour Design to do a SHOWCASE for the 5G.

So, since Apple got rid of the remote port on the top of the new 5G’s and all the accessories (itrp, italk, etc) now have to plug into the bottom, you would have to stick your ipod in this case upside down, correct? I still think getting rid of the top mounted remote port was a bad idea…

IMO, this case design is simple and works well. I had one very much like it for my iPod mini. It’s not for someone who never wants to take their iPod out of its case, but for those of use who have in-car mounts, etc., this is a great design. Also, the incase products I’ve had in the past have always been very high quality and nicely constructed. I’ll definitely be on the look-out for this one…

yeah if they’re going to put out pouches for the 5Gs then they should put a dock connector outlet at the bottom for accessories instead of keeping it upside down.  personally i am going to wait for the 5G Folio case. i have it for my 4G and it the best case ever. keeps the iPod in pristine condition inside. i barely ever take it out. and the best part is that it is incredibly easy to use.

Yep, I’ll miss the top port.  I was gonna buy that top mounted controls thing for my next iPod.  Guess not.
