Contour Design on Tuesday announced the release of the Showcase nano V3 and Showcase touch, two new "dual-layered" cases for the third-generation iPod nano and iPod touch, respectively. The Showcase nano V3 costs $29.95, while the Showcase touch costs $34.95.
Both cases share common characteristics: A hinged door, and a composition that combines shock-absorbing rubber with clear plastic, accessibility to all open ports, and a custom fit designed specifically for the iPod model. The Showcase nano V3 sports a Click Wheel protector while the Showcase touch sports a click-through hold button protector.
Both cases feature removable belt clips that can be put in multiple positions, or replaced with a twist-in plug to keep a low profile. The case closes securely using a sliding latch.
