#### the designer and manufacturer of eXo announces Shades, a 1.5mm soft, scratch resistant molded TPU screen protector for the 3rd gen iPod is now available and will be shipped to all distributors and resellers this week from his factory in China. Shades totally covers the screen area and a 1.0mm wide rim fits nicely under the eXo skin. The combination of Shade’s smooth surface contacting the screen and the rim hold it in place, there is no adhesive to mark your screen. The surface between shades and the iPod screen has a 0.5mm space that gently tapers from the center of Shades to the rim. When placed properly you should get little to no ‘wet’ look between Shades and your display.

Thanks ####!

I’m sure these are high quality just like the new iSkins. Can’t wait to get mine in the mail.

Wasn’t there/Isn’t there/Willthere be an exo skin that includes the screen protector as part of the overall covering?
Also do you know if these are available to touch and feel in shops like Micro Anvika (UK Apple retailer) as I plan to visit the Selfridges mini-store to help me choose my skin before buying online.
Cheers

Robert if you ask your reseller to order iSkin for you and the rest of their customers I am sure they will. A store can order as little as 10 and get 40% off with free shipping.  Just tell them about our website [url=http://www.iskinUSA.com]http://www.iskinUSA.com[/url] Most resellers handle iSkin because of customer demand.  It is a good exchange, you save the shipping and get to see and touch iSkin and they make a reason profit for their investment.

I hope they work better than the iSkin I received. They sent me the wrong size for my iPod. iSkin4iPod.com won’t reply to my emails requesting them to ship me the right size, how can I expect them to ship the screen protector? Don’t buy your exo from [url=http://www.iskin4ipod.com]http://www.iskin4ipod.com[/url]

Cmm go on my site [url=http://www.iskinUSA.com]http://www.iskinUSA.com[/url] and place your order for the eXo color and size you wanted but never got, click on the cart and fill in your name and shipping address and then enter other as form of payment. Post you name here and I will send you one for free with the screen protector. I understand your frustration.  I have seen your message more than once and it is time for the manufacturer to end this on a happy note.

Thank you so much ####. I will do that.

I got my iSkin yesterday.  I like it better than the DLO JamJacket.  But I’d really like a case that fits in the dock without dinking around.  Damned Apple for changing the connection.

Yes it is not a pretty way to dock, good thing the silicone is so soft and flexible

Hi ####,

I was one of the people selected to beta test the new iSkin. Now that they are already available, are you still going to send them to beta testers?

Thanks!

they were sent out some time ago, please send me your name and address. I will check our email to see what happened. Email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and fill in the subject as tester forgotten, then I will know it is you. I have all the emails from the tester selected and I will find yours. Everyone was notified sometime ago and those that got back were sent an eXo to test.

Hi ####,

Jamie wasn’t the only one who did not receive the email. Would the same apply to me? I can also forward you the email that I received stating that I was accepted as a tester.

Regards,
Rich

will the shades work with other cases? or do they require the exo to hold them in place?

####,

I was so desperate to get an eXo that bought it from an ebay seller quite awhile ago.  I absolutely love it!

Unfortunately, of course it did not come with the screen protector (or any promise to fullfill one)

I built a protector using overhead projector plastic sheet, cut to size msyelf.  It works, but not too well (moves around alot).

Is there any reseller (or can you?) who sells the “shade” by itself?  I just want to buy a shade.

i want to be beta tester and i am in Hong Kong. smile

I could work with some of the other cases but I have not tested it. If the case screen opening is the same as the iPod then I it should fit.

How to get one?? if you contact thinkdifferentstore.com in New York maybe they could post one to you it is too expensive to send such a small item by Fedex.

Hong Kong, great, right next door to me. Keep checking and you will have a chance to test the next case coming out.

Now I am going to Star Bucks and fuel up to have the energy to deal with the factory today, I am building 2 new designs and we are testing molds today.

By any chance you know where to get MaClear zip case in Hong Kong?  or i can buy it off you.  I don’t wanna open from ebay or stores in US and pay a lot shipping.

You will be able to buy it from NewVision at the Star Ferry Computer Center. They just order and we will be shipping it to them today. They will have it on Monday/Tuesday.

THanks a lot.. i know exactly where it is.

Did they order iSkin Exo as well?  I am thinking to pick it up as well.. or MaClear is included in the iSkin?
