It’s big, it’s bulky, and down right ugly.

wha wha whaaat? The 3 cases they have on their site, I have seen other places. I think they are selling other people’s products. If not, they are seriously ripping other people off.

To frank, max and zero:

Your comments and questions are all answered at the link posted in the article:


“Our first three models start with existing, popular cases customized for and including MultiPivotâ„¢.”

Then on, they mention bellagio ishield and matias armor and lajo zip by name.

If you think the shield is big and bulky, use your own case—just make sure its got about an inch and 1/2 square flat on the back for the fastener, or try the zip or armor styles. They should be able to offer a lot more cases soon I hope.

I like the look of the shield myself, but then i’m more into things working right. maybe you want to waste a hand holding your ipod and dancing around in the dark like their ads.

I’m waiting for mine and looking forward to the “flipandview” feature and the extender so i can consolidate with my treo.

no offense. however, I think most customers are looking forward to a case that can provide good protection while add less bulkiness. The idea of being fully protective but being quite bulky reduces the beauty and portability of the ipod.

Hi Frank,

I still don’t think you get it. I guess their site isn’t totally clear about the multipivot being removeable.

iMod Cases are not just the one in the picture.

If you want a light, clear case, you can go with the imod zip, and only use the multipivot for your desk and car stand. But the belt flip up looks like its most appealing feature to me, even if the multipivot adds a couple ounces.

I’m getting a black one—they have red, green, gold, silver too.
