These two flip-style PDA cases for the fifth-generation iPod are made from soft black Nappa leather and marketed with two angles: the red-badged I-nique (£24) is deemed "limited edition" based on individual numbering and a guarantee that only 100-200 such cases will be made "per series." White stitching in this model contrasts with the leather body. The green-badged version is an Eco-nique (£19) case that the company says is "climate neutral," thanks to a carbon emission offset manufacturing process. Apart from their marketing, the cases are unremarkable; both have removable plastic belt clips, metal screw-in clip nubs, and magnetic clasps to hold the flip tops closed. Separately sized versions are available for 30GB iPods and their thicker 60GB/80GB breathren.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
