XtremeMac today announced its new MicroShield (US$24.95), a crystal clear case designed to fit the newest version of Apple’s iPod nano. MicroShield is available for pre-order now via the XtremeMac Web site and will begin shipping to Internet customers on November 6, 2006. “Constructed of impact-resistant hard plastic, MicroShield protects iPod nano from scratches and dings while showcasing its shape and color. Secured by a soft seal closure, the case offers built-in screen and click wheel protection, yet maintains access to all controls and ports. MicroShield’s clear plastic covers the iPod nano’s screen without obscuring it, while a play-through disc covers the click wheel to prevent scratches and discoloration. A detachable, 360° rotating belt clip clicks into a variety of positions and features a pair of notches for winding up excess earbud cord.”
