Griffin Technology Announces New iPod Cases for New iPods
NASHVILLE, TN, September 6, 2007
Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod, today continued its strong commi™ent to support Apple products with the announcement of a new line of cases designed specifically for the latest iPod models, just unveiled yesterday in San Francisco.
Bearing Griffin's trademark blend of protection, style and convenience, this new case collection for the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch will begin shipping next month:
iClear® for new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch
iClear is all-over armor for your iPod, that hides none of your iPod's good looks. Snap the durable, crystal-clear polycarbonate shell around your iPod. You still have access to the iPod screen, ports and control surfaces, but dirt and scratches are locked out. New, custom-fit iClear will be available for the new iPod nano, iPod classic and iPod touch.
Reflect™ for iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch
It's like magic. Reflect presents a sleek, mirrored face to the world -- until you activate your iPod and its screen shines through the metallic finish. Reflect provides protection for your iPod as only a hard shell of polycarbonate can. Reflect's design for the iPod touch is slightly different than the other Reflect models. To leave the touch screen accessible, Reflect for iPod touch surrounds the front edges of the iPod touch in the same chromed, reflective polycarbonate used in other Reflect models. A matte black rubberized case back seals your iPod inside, and provides a sure grip. Reflect is protection for your iPod that reflects well on you; available in sizes to fit the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch.
Elan™ Convertible for new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch
A new Convertible leather flip-top case will join Griffin's Elan family of stylish cases, in sizes to fit all three new iPod models. The top-grain leather removable flipcover protects your iPod screen, and reverses to create a stand for hands-free use. The clear screen protector and soft microfiber lining provide all-over protection against scratches. Convertible's removable clip lets you attach your iPod to your belt or shoulder strap, and its sleek profile lets you slip it into your pocket without adding bulk. Elan Convertible will be available in sizes to fit the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch.
Elan™ Form for new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch
Another new addition to Griffin's Elan family of cases is an elegant hard-shell leather case, shaped to perfectly fit your iPod. The shell's form-fitting design bonds top-grain leather to durable, protective polycarbonate, to encase your iPod in two layers of protection. The top-grain leather outer shell is crafted from hand-matched hides, while the polycarbonate inner shell surrounds your iPod with armor. All this protection still affords easy access to click wheel or touch screen, dock connector, headphone port and hold switch. Elan Form will be available in sizes to fit the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch.
Streamline™ for new iPod nano, iPod classic/iPod touch
Griffin's already-popular Streamline is the ultimate sport armband, now updated for the new iPod models. At the gym, on the road, or hitting the trail, your iPod rides safely in the sport armband that lives up to its name. Streamline's screen cover protects your iPod's face from scratches and dust, but is sensitive enough to allow complete navigation of click wheel or touch screen interface. The one-piece, low-profile design keeps your iPod always handy, but never in the way. The washable, two-way adjustable band fits any arm with a breathable, comfortable fit that you can wear all day. Reflective trim is a safety feature that makes you more visible to traffic at dusk. Streamline will be available in two sizes: one for the new iPod nano, and one for iPod classic or iPod touch.
Courier™ for iPod classic and iPod touch
Griffin's updated Courier has been redesigned with a slimmer new look and abrasion-resistant durability, thanks to its compression-molded EVA outer casing. Designed to wrap onto a backpack or shoulderbag strap, Courier carries your iPod and accessories always at the ready, double-secured with heavy-duty hook-and-loop closure and carabiner clip. Courier features a hidden zippered pocket for money, keys, or ID, and a second flapped pocket for your sync cable, earphones, or other small accessories. Courier has been updated to fit both iPod classic and iPod touch.

Griffin's new cases for the new iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch, priced between $19.99 and $34.99, will be available at major retailers nationwide in October 2007. For more information, please visit www.griffintechnology.com.
