Tunewear on Wednesday announced the
— a new protective silicone case made for Apple’s iPod shuffle. The new cover is made of high-density transparent silicone similar in composition to the material used to make diving masks. It is part of the same family of protective covers previously released for iPod minis and fourth-generation iPods. It will cost US$19.95 when it is released at the end of May, 2005.
Included with the Icewear shuffle are two cap covers — one is for the “regular” cap, the other is for the cap attached to the lanyard that comes with iPod shuffles. A removable ball-bearing style chain is also included. The Icewear shuffle is equipped with “shock absorbing ribs” and provides access to the iPod shuffle’s control pad, slider switch and connectors. It’s surface-washable with water and soap, according to Tunewear.
