Speck Products today announced the arrival and shipment of its ToughSkin rubberized case for new iPods (with video – 30 & 60 GB). ToughSkins in black will begin shipping today — both online and to major retailers in the US, where shelves should be stocked in time for the start of the Holiday shopping season. “This is the best ToughSkin to date. We’ve improved the look, feel, and functionality,” said General Manager Tim Hickman. “We’ve enhanced the screen protector- adding a rubber ridge around the back to make it safe and secure, and we’ve made the 30 gig spacer out of soft rubber instead of hard plastic.” ToughSkins in black sells for US$34.95.
