NASHVILLE, TN – July 20, 2006.

Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod, today announced a new line of innovative cases for iPod. The company is shipping four new models to retailers today, followed by a steady stream of new case products throughout the year with plans for a 2006 holiday collection. Griffin's emphasis will be on unique features and compelling designs.

“Our goal is to take the appearance and functionality of iPod cases to a whole new level in the marketplace. We’ve focused on combining the highest quality materials and top of the line craftsmanship with our trademark design philosophy,” said Paul Griffin, founder of Griffin Technology. “We plan to lead the trends of the season, not follow them.”

Griffin's new offerings include:

trio – 3 in 1 in cases for nano available in multiple colors.
