PDO has announced that it is now shipping the TopSkin for iPhone 3G, and has also introduced its new High Performance Series cables and PowerUP car and wall chargers for iPod and iPhone. Announced in June, the TopSkin is a form-fitting silicone case featuring a play-through design that covers the power, volume, and home buttons in a slim layer of silicone, while cut-outs allow for access to the iPhone’s screen, camera, ring/vibrate switch, speakers, and microphone. The device’s Dock Connector and headphone jack are covered by flaps that can be opened for access and protect the ports when not in use. In addition, the TopSkin features a micro texture grip on all four sides, and includes a slim-profile belt clip and a full frontal screen protector. It sells for $20.

PDO’s High Performance Series cables include the Audio Auxiliary Cable and RCA Stereo Audio Cable. Both cables measure six feet in length and feature black chrome finished connectors with gold-plated contacts. The 3.5mm to 3.5mm Audio Auxiliary Cable allows the user to connect his/her iPod or iPhone to a car’s auxiliary input jack, while the 3.5mm to RCA Stereo Audio Cable allows connection of an iPod or iPhone to a traditional stereo speaker system. Both cables are compatible with all iPod and iPhone models, and will be available at the end of the month for $20 each. Finally, PDO’s PowerUP Wall Charger and PowerUp Car Charger for iPod and iPhone enable charging of the devices at home and in the car, respectively. The PowerUP Wall Charger features dual USB charging ports for charging two iPods/iPhones at once, and comes with a USB Dock Connector charging cable. The PowerUP Car Charger features an indicator light to show charging status and an integrated coiled Dock Connector cable. Both chargers will be available in early August for $20 each.

Looking at the available case covering the sensors, how will this affect the function of the sensors?  This question falls through for all other cases.  Any comment/response will be appreciated.  Thank you.

I’m wondering about the same thing.. I see there’s a small slit above the earphone, dont know what it does. But sorry to say this, doesn’t it look ugly ? I mean there are so many companies coming up with maddening colors covering up the whole iPhone in the name of protection, they’re actually just taking away its natural beauty. But what choice would you have anyways ?

Ooh, how special, gold plated expensive cables!  For $20 each?!!  I can get the same thing for the exact same audio quality for $0.61 from Monoprice!  Sorry, I think its time more people speak out against these garbage overpriced audio cables.  Selling this they’re just another Monster cable.

This company thinks there’s “no need” for a car charger with AUX out for ipods and iPhones.  Bleah.
