Canadian company Matias announced on Friday the release of new
cases designed to fit the iPod photo as well as the new 4G iPods. The US$49.95 case completely encloses the MP3 player in an aluminum shell and flips open to provide access to the front ports, its friction foam interior holding the iPod in place. Openings at the top provide access to those ports while a removable rubber panel covers the docking connector. For $59.95, you can add on two of Matias’ Armor Clips and three anchors for hooking a PDA, cell phone or similar device to the case.
