Tunewear on Wednesday announced the new
Icewear 3G case
for 30GB and 40GB third-generation (3G) iPods — older dock-connected iPods with scroll wheels and navigation buttons instead of the newer Click Wheel interface. Like other Icewear cases, the Icewear 3G is made of the same high-density transparent silicone used to make diving masks. It provides access to all the iPod’s ports, and sports shock-absorbing ribs on the side. Tunewear notes that the Icewear 3G case is only suitable for the 30 and 40GB third-generation iPod models — it will not work with 10, 15 and 20GB models, which are slightly thinner. The Icewear 3G costs US$24.95 and will ship in December.
