Speck launches cases for new iPod family


Speck has launched a myriad of new cases for the iPod nano (with video), iPod touch, and iPod classic. Speck ToughSkin cases feature a rugged design with shock-absorbing rubberized bumpers and tear-resistant plastic. 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.

The SeeThru nano case features interchangeable back plates for either a smooth surface or belt clip, while the SeeThru touch includes a hybrid belt clip/stand for watching videos.

Finally, the PinStripe case ($30) is two-part, snap-together hard shell case covered in pinstripe fabric.

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?
