Need an iPod Nano Case? This is an Option, I Guess

The new iPod Nano makes me wonder why anyone would buy the iPod Shuffle. Sure, the shuffle is cheap and all that, but you get tons more storage with the Nano and it’s only a little bit bigger than the Shuffle. Oh, and it’s got a display. But regardless, this small size makes some people wonder how they’re going to protect something so tiny. At least that’s what I assume Griffin is thinking when they designed this case, the Wristlet.

So … it’s a case. It’s made of silicone, and stretches around your Nano. But better yet – if you consider this better, anyways – it also has a wrist strap on it. That means you can wear your iPod Nano from a plastic rubber band dangling on your wrist, or just give your tiny device a little handle.

Is that an advantage? I’d think that the Nano now appeals to gym rats and the like, not people who need some kind of tether for their iPod. But whatever, it’s out there. And if you want to spend $19.99 on the thing, go ahead. Me, I don’t get it. But hey, I’m not everybody.
