Just about the size of a credit card, the iPod Nano 7 (or 7th generation iPod Nano) is the thinnest in its line. I don’t know about you, but I was almost flabberagasted when I first heard about this iteration. Having used several Nanos – from the short, wide one to the long, narrow one to the little square one – I thought that Apple couldn’t do much more with the Nano. And, boy, was I wrong!
The official announcement of the iPhone 5 may have slightly overshadowed the iPod Nano 7, but there is something to be said about this “completely renanoed” iPod, which simply has a renewed body and yet retains its old soul. And, if you’re among those who have upgraded from the wonderful little Nano which you can double as a wristwatch, then you will want new clothing to protect your new toy.
Compared to the other iPods, there aren’t that many choices for cases for the iPod Nano 7. Yet. For now, here are several cases which will do the job and – hopefully – adhere to your sense of aesthestics.
From the little I have found online, it seems that Cygnett offers the most choices – all seven of them! There’s the Cygnett Holster Hybrid case, which is a clip-on case. It comes in green and black.
You can also choose from the different colors of the FlexiGel Case, which comes in purple, blue, and black.
If you like silicone cases, then look at either the black or red Second Skin Silicone Case.
And if you mainly use the Nano when you run, jog, or bike, the Action Nano Case comes with the required wristband.
For even better fit and protection for people on the go, the i-Blason Armband Case is a good option. The skin is silicone, and the armband is stretchy velcro. It also comes with a skin protector. Your options are pink/magenta and black.
Of all the cases for iPod Nano 7, the Ionic SLIM Slider Case looks most interesting in that it seems to offer the most protection. It comes in black, white, blue, and purple.
If these cases do not catch your eye, you can sniff around on eBay. There are a handful of silicone cases for iPod Nano 7, but they looked rather cheap and flimsy to me.
