Available for the nano($25), touch ($25), and classic ($30), ToughSkin cases are available in black and clear. Previewed in our ‘08 iPod + iPhone Buyers’ Guide, Speck ArmorSkin cases for the nano($30), touch ($30), and classic ($30) also come in black and clear and feature a “chunky” textured rubberized skin to protect the rear, sides, and corners of the iPod, while a clear, flexible plate protects the screen and front of the iPod.

I’m very interested in the SeeThru Nano because of the interchangeable backplate (sometimes you feel like a clip, sometimes you don’t), but I’m worried this one-piece, hard plastic clip would be liable to breakage. Has anyone had a chance to check it out?
