How is it that we already have iPad mini cases announced, but there is still nothing of note on the horizon for the 5G touch? Thank goodness Apple finally released a touch as durable as the aluminum nanos (I am impressed that I’ve been carring this thing around for a couple of weeks and not a mark on it).
