Spotlight Gadget – Touchlite iPod Touch Covers

touchlite

These shiny hard covers from More Thing for the iPod Touch caught my eye while surfing for news this morning. They look pretty snazzy don’t they? I thought they were made of metal, but they are actually plastic with a metallic finish. This company carries covers for the iPhone 3G, original iPhone and nano too.

    Would be nice if they had a full metal one also.

    Argh, no it’s not… Hmmm, it says anodized Polycarbonate plastic hard case. Wow, kinda false advertising when they say it’s Metal. Nevermind. :(

    @ Julie:

    It looked really nice too. But they should really leave the “metal” out of the product name.

    I would like on for the Ipod Classic as after a year of daily use on my way to and from work, at the gym, walking my four dogs at night…. It’s seen better days!… Any handy links?

    Cheers

    Fatboy:
    It doesn’t look like they make them for the iPod Classic. At least not Touchlite.

    Well it looks like i’ll have just have to make do with my poor scuffed and scratched ipod as it is! :-(

    well, I bought this case and I have to say… Looks= 10/10. Protection? Not so good. After 1 time of dropping on carpet, the touchlite case came off the ipod and that’s not even the bad part. The bad part is the little corner broke off… Still, it works but sorta annoying to have a broken part u know? Also, it does scratch on the back, but it doesn’t scratch as much as the actual ipod touch.

    I just ordered one for my iPod touch 2g on about April 3 and I am really anxiouse about getting it. Is there anyone who could tell me when they got theirs? I ordered it from hong kong and I live in the US.

    I ordered this on a whim and was expecting to be disappointed. When I received it I was pleasantly surprised. It looks fantastic, fits well, and is easy to pop on. Most folks who pick up the Touch don’t even notice it, which is what I was going for. I found the protective screen difficult to lay on without getting a few bubbles, and no amount of smoothing seem to get rid of them. But they are not noticeable. Overall I am very pleased with this cover.

    The best cover I have ever come a cross is the InvisibleShield from Zagg. It’s made of this reinforced rubber stuff, completely clear, full body protection. I had one on my IPhone and Ipod Classic for a year now, and there isn’t a single scratch on either, despite regularly being in my pocket with keys etc. It doesn’t protect from impact, but it looks as good as new and the cover is is removable without residue =] but it literally is completely scratch proof. So, its much better than this… and won’t come off without some serious consideration!

    They make one for pretty much every gadget in existence, and i now never take anything out of the house thats electronic and expensive without slapping one of these on!
