Tunewear today announced its new ICEWEAR series, ICEWEAR 3G, for Apple’s iPod 3G 30GB and 40GB models. ICEWEAR 3G uses the same silicone found in diving masks, and allows access to all ports, including the headphone jack, dock connector, hold switch and click wheel. Shock absorbing ribs on the sides not only serve to protect the iPod during falls, but they also function as a grip for the iPod when held in your hand or when placed on most any surface. The new ICEWEAR 3G will be available at the beginning of December for a suggested retail price of US$24.95. The company says it has no plans to developer ICEWEAR for the 10GB, 15GB, or 20GB iPod 3G.
