Cheap & Cute Cases for iPod nano 4G

Need Accessories for a new iPod nano 4G?

Apple has recently released the fourth generation of their higly successful iPod nano: the iPod nano 4G. As well as being offered in different colors from the earlier nano 3G the iPod 4G is a different size: its the narrower form, similar to the 2G model but is slimmer with overall dimensions of 90.7mm (3.6 inches) tall by 38.7mm (1.5 inches) wide by 6.2 mm (0.24 inch) thick, and weighing 36.8 grams (1.3 ounces).

Selecting the Right Case for your iPod Nano 4G

First off if you are buying an iPod case for yourself or as a present: they make a great stocking-stuffer for teens, the first thing is not to be confused with the terminology. The G as in iPod nano 4G or nano 3G is the 'generation', if you see the iPod nano 8GB thats Gigabytes: the size of the disk, it tells the knowledgeable how many songs or photos can be stored on the iPod nano. The difference in capacity does NOT reflect in the physical size of the iPod nano: but the nano 4G is a significantly different size from the nano 3G and closer in fact to the nano 2G. Keep this is mind when shopping for cases.

Don't Buy this iPod Case

Don't buy this Titanium beauty. It probably won't fit the 4G anyway but this titanium iPod case will protect your new iPod very well, given its made from the same materials as Formula One cars and satellites. So why don't I recommend it: it costs $820: 4 times what most iPods costs! And its ugly!

In fact its possible to argue that you don't really NEED a case for your nano at all. The iPod is pretty robust, it has a solid state drive and the odd scratch won't stop it working just fine. But other hand: with this exception, most cases cost well under $10 and buying on-line makes sense as they are so easy to ship.
