picSpeck Products, long-time maker of soft plastic cases for the iPod, has introduced ToughSkin ($34.95), a new ruggedized plastic skin that boasts shock and tear resistance. Like Speck’s earlier cases, ToughSkin is made from soft Kraton plastic, but differs in its shape and features: ToughSkin includes brick-like bumpers on its corners and edges, screen and Click Wheel covers, and a detachable belt clip. Versions of ToughSkin will be available for fourth-generation iPods, the iPod photo, and the iPod mini, and five colors are expected: frosted clear, black, blue, orange, and red.
