Zip your iPod, new case announced

pic Lajo Cymbalski, the designer of iSkin and Maclear products has announced the Zip case for iPod. Zip fits new iPod 10/15/30GB models.

“Zip by Maclear will change the way you view and use your new iPod. It is made from the top quality ultra clear PTU material, Zip protects the entire iPod body including the screen and touchwheel. Although covered the touchwheel is fully functional. Zip comes with a removable chrome belt clip stub, so now it’s zip it, protect it, use it, wear it and show it off.

You won’t want to handle your precious new iPod without it. It only costs $12.50 with the belt clip. Zip up, it’s a rough world out there.”

Once I launch g3 I will redesign g2 and g1. The first iSkin design launched by www.iskin4ipod.com was removed from the market 3 months ago. The existing stock of 3000 is being prepared for a 50% sell off this month sometime.

No problem, we are in Shenzhen China, I go to Hong Kong every week and we can ship from here. So relax you have no problems

We are both the same company (http://www.iSkin.biz and [url=http://www.Maclear.biz]http://www.Maclear.biz)[/url] and manufacturer of both products in Shenzhen China. iSkin will be in production this week, but there are many accessories with it so some of these may not be finished this week and we are offering a free zip case to hold the iskined iPod with the first batch of iSkins G3. There are lots of bits and pieces that have to come together, this may happen this week?? Zip on the other hand is a case that fills a void that iSkin can not fill and that is that you can use it with another leather case or the case supplied by Apple and when you want to handle the real iPod without a case, it is great for all of that. I have it on mine and I love it.

I’m in Hong Kong too,  also like to order the Zip. What should I do? Can you help me or should I order it from www.thinkdifferentstore.com? I think ship from Shenzhen China will be easier than from China to US, then from US to Hong Kong. Any suggestion? Thank you very much.

Most of the stores in Hong Kong will be carrying Zip so you can go to New Vision at Star Ferry Computer Mall to buy it. Watch our site and we will anounce when it is ready to be shipped to our resellers.  Hong Kong is a beautiful city.

Products for iPod: I will be designing and manufacturing a number of new products for iPod and other electronic toys, like digital cameras, PDAs etc.
