XtremeMac Announces MicroShield for iPod with Video
Crystal clear case showcases iPod, provides protection from scratches
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Nov. 29, 2005 — XtremeMac announced its first
accessory for iPod with video today, a clear protective case called
MicroShield. This two-piece case snaps onto the front and back of the iPod,
providing the body and screen with protection from scratches while
highlighting its sleek design.
MicroShield comes with one front and two rear panels: one with an
integrated, low-profile belt clip, and one without. This design offers the
flexibility of using the front and rear panels separately or together and
provides users with the option of using a belt clip or not. When used
together, the front and rear panels encase the iPod in a hard plastic shell
that provides unobstructed access to the Click Wheel, Dock Connector, and
earbud jack. In addition, the design of the rear panel accommodates the
iPod with either end up – allowing users to position the earbud jack either
at the top or bottom – a feature that will be appreciated by those who
prefer to use the belt clip with this case.
“The design of the new iPod is so striking that we decided to build a
protective case that truly showcases it,” said Gary Bart, CEO of XtremeMac.
“MicroShield has been our most popular case for the iPod nano, and looks to
be just our leading case for the new iPod.”
MicroShield is available in 30GB and 60GB models to accommodate both sizes
of the new iPod with video. It retails for $24.95 and will be available in
stores and online in one to two weeks. For more details and images of
MicroShield, or to place an order, visit www.XtremeMac.com.
