I’m wondering is the “not for pocket use” of the card wallet for the screen cracking issue, not for using your back pockets and sitting on it, or another reason?

i don’t see the point in “unveiling” all these products if we can’t buy them yet.  just seems like terrible marketing - announce the product then give the consumer a couple of weeks to forget all about it until it’s available for shipping.  DON’T ANY OF THESE CLOWNS WANT TO SELL PRODUCT??

the hard plastic “sidewinder” seems pretty cool.  I’d get one if I hadn’t already ordered my Tunewear leather Prie case.

I was talking to Apple tech support (for a dead 4G) and asked about my nano screen.- he recommended a case and I made a crack about how you can’t get any and he only sighed.

All this will be mot in a few weeks when we are inundated with nano cases everywhere we look

I think Marware by far is offering the absolute BEST variety out of anyone.  These cases look like the same quality Marware has always offered, only custom designed for the nano!  I like the heads up approach, it gives me time to budget and decide which case(s) I want.

Why is everyone so worked up?  Keep up the good work Marware.  I have been using your cases since the original iPods were the “hot” item to have.  Looks like my nano will be good and protected.  Thanks for not making the same old thing.  Very progressive!

Companies unveil these products so they can get the word out to other people. Just because we find out first here doesn’t mean everyone can instantly get this information. It takes a while to spread.

I like the Sport Grip model, but because of a recent experience I’m very interested to know exactly what “clear plastic screen protector” means. Is it built in to the case or is it a separate little rectangle of plastic that you have to wedge in after you’ve slipped the case on? I bought an ezSkin for iPod nano from ezgear4u.com, and I like the case very much. However, its screen protector was a little rectangle of plastic, and while I was wearing the iPod on my belt (with the included belt clip), the nano somehow managed to poke the top of its head out of the opening, and by the time I realized this, the screen protector was gone. Do any cases of this general type come with their screen protectors built in?

On the contrary, very luck.  the budget is for a nano and probably about 3 cases or so.  I am fortunate to be able to contemplate anbd budget for such things wink
