As the latest in SwitchEasy's series of affordable, substantially protective cases for iPods, Cubes ($13 each) are two-tone silicone rubber cases for the fifth-generation iPod nano. The back sides use twin-colored rectangular grids of elevated, Chiclet-like rounded boxes to provide a unique look and feel, while the front has openings for the nano's screen and Click Wheel. Camera, Hold switch and bottom port holes are also parts of the case; SwitchEasy includes two sets each of screen, Click Wheel, and Dock Connector covers. We really like these cases, but one -- the black one -- arrived with an obvious rip in its rubber, albeit one that would not prevent the case from being used.


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.
