Say hello to the iSkin touch case for the all new and amazing iPod touch. iSkin has introduced its new iSkin iPod touch case which is designed to perfectly encapsulate and protect the iPod yet maintain a slim and elegant profile - all with well thought out features.

Designed from every angle, the iSkin iPod touch case delivers on the promise of solid protection with sophisticated style. Made with iSkin premium silicone, the iSkin touch will keep your iPod safe and sound from damage caused by everyday use. It features integrated port covers for both the earphones and the dock connector ports. When not being used, the ports are securely covered to keep dirt and other unwanted impurities from entering the iPod. It even covers and protects the iPod's hold switch, without affecting its usability.
Rotary clip system on the iSkin Touch iPod Touch case:
The iSkin touch case comes with a fully removable rotary belt clip system (revoClip3) that integrates seamlessly to keep you and your iPod connected. Its low profile design isn't bulky and its durable polycarbonate structure provides a strong hold. The revoClip3 can easily be removed for an even leaner look, and includes a soft silicone place holder to block the rear clip holes and prevent dirt from entering.
Protective Screen Film included with the iSkin Touch case:
The iSkin iPod touch case includes a neat protective screen film that does more than just protect. It features anti-glare and anti-fingerprint properties that help to provide a clear view of the iPod's screen no matter what the condition.

Contour Design has introduced its new iSee nano V3 for the iPod nano (with video) and iSee Touch case for the iPod touch.
The iPod touch takes technology to the next level, and the iSee touch takes cases to that level as well. The iPod touch’s shape and curves are echoed by the iSee touch, providing all around access and protection in a highly polished jewel case.
Two backs make it the most versatile case available for the iPod touch: a simple, smooth back makes for a super low profile design and a belt clip compatible back, featuring a new clip attachment. The new slimline belt clip can be mounted in four ways or replaced with a plug to close the attachment point and a hinged dock port protector open partially for access to only the headphone jack or fully for additional access to the dock port and hold switch.
All of the control surfaces remain fully accessible, even the hold switch, which is protected by a click through silicone button.
The iSee iPod touch case priced at $29.95 keeps your iPod protected and looking great, so you can move on to more important things, like your movies, music, photos, and internet.
"One of the tougher decisions for gadget buyers this year is which iPod to purchase," Eric Benderoff blogs for The Chicago Tribune.|
"The problem is at the high-end, where buyers can choose between Apple's slick iPod Touch ($399 for 16 gigabytes of storage) or the massive capacity of the iPod Classic ($349 for 160 gb of storage)."
Benderoff asks, "It raises a key question, one that I know several people are pondering: do I opt for style or storage?"
"That doesn’t mean the iPod Classic is not stylish in its own right. It has a new software interface, can play movies, show your photos and hold your contacts. Plus, it can double as a back-up hard drive," Benderoff explains.
"But the Classic is not nearly as much fun to use as the iPod Touch which accesses your music at the swipe of a finger"
Benderoff finishes off by saying, "I imagine the iPod Touch will outsell the Classic this holiday season simply because it is so interesting to use and it offers features people will want to try. You can also consider waiting a year, when a bigger iPod Touch is likely to be introduced."

Apple has been hit by shortages in touch-screens, delaying iPod touch production and impacting flash memory prices, a report claims. |
Apple has had to delay volume shipments of the iPod touch due to a shortage of touch screen panels, according to a DigiTimes report. The report claims that “Apple originally planned to rapidly grow global shipments up to the year-end holidays.
However, due to the shortage of touch screen panels, volume shipments have been pushed back to this month.” This delay has also affected flash memory prices, which were expected to recover based on strong demand for the iPod touch.
Due to the delay, NAND flash producers were not able to make planned deliveries to Apple, and as a result have had to find other vendors to purchase their products.
So in the long term, the flash market is unlikely to see any price stabilization.
