Lajo’s secret next-generation cases revealed

Following the success of Lajo’s eXo and eXo 2 cases for 3G iPods, iLounge can now exclusively reveal details on two new #### cases currently in development for 2004 release. (click ‘Read more’)

eXo series 4 (not actual name): iLounge has learned that even with the release of the eXo 3 only days away, #### is currently working on another silicone-based iPod case. The case, which has been in development for weeks, will undergo initial manufacturing testing for the first time in the next week. “Testing of the mold will be in about 7 days,” explained China-based #### in an interview, noting that the Chinese New Year has temporarily delayed that process. Previous iterations of the eXo have included varying thicknesses of silicone protection for the iPod and its controls, an increasing array of colors and belt clip options, and evolving stylistic improvements. While details on the next-generation case are scant, the chief improvements requested by eXo users in the iLounge forums are the ability to properly dock the iPod while in its case, and superior screen protection. Users have also contemplated the prospect of a case for the new iPod mini.

Lajo’s Leather Case: iLounge has also learned that #### plans a 2004 release for a designer-class leather case for the iPod. While many iPod owners prefer form-fitting silicone or the high-impact clear plastic found in Speck Products’ Flipstand, case makers such as Vaja have also enjoyed success with higher-end leather designs. According to ####, his company’s leather product has gone through three designers in an effort to create a unique and superior product. “Nothing like it has [ever] been produced,” #### claimed, “and it may start a trend.”

Stay tuned to this space for additional news on these new products, as well as iLounge’s upcoming reviews of the recently released eXo Inferno and eXo 3 cases.
