Griffin Expands Case Offering for iPod

NASHVILLE, TN - April 13, 2007

Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod, today announced three new additions to its case lineup for iPod:

Courier™ is, hands down, the most versatile carrying case for iPod and all its gear. Included are separate, detachable cases for iPod and iPod nano. Slip your iPod into its case, then slip it, case and all, into the Courier carrier. When you take it out, your iPod stays inside its own protective case. So, even when you're using your iPod apart from Courier, it stays protected.

The best part: Courier is designed around an adjustable wrap that hugs the carrying strap of your backpack or shoulder bag, to keep your iPod and all its accessories up front where it's always handy. You can wrap Courier two ways: open for easy access at a glance, or closed for anonymity and protection. There's room in Courier's pockets for cables, headphones, adapters, you name it -- whatever you need to keep handy with your iPod.

Courier features:

  • Universal strap attachment fits all shoulderbag and backpack straps
  • Leather/Cordura materials for beauty and durability
  • Reflective trim provides visibility for night safety
  • An assortment of different-sized compartments for cables and accessories
  • Comes with detachable cases to fit iPod nano and full-size iPod with video

Tempo™ armband for iPod shuffle brings the innovative features and convenience of Griffin's Tempo armband to 2nd generation iPod shuffle users. Tempo is designed around a lightweight, breathable band of micro-membrane elastic fiber, to make it as comfortable as it is durable. An easy-grip finemold TPR rubber tip makes the armband easy to adjust, and an industrial-strength hook & loop closure gives Tempo an infinitely-adjustable fit that stays put while you're running, working out, or getting things done around the house. Maintain the Tempo of your active lifestyle with a Tempo armband for your iPod shuffle.

Tempo for shuffle features:

  • Lightweight and machine-washable
  • One-size-fits-all armband adjusts to fit any arm
  • Patented Griffin clip design holds your iPod shuffle securely
  • Integrated cord-wrap takes care of cable slack to prevent tangles
  • Reflective trim confers visibility for safety at night
  • Available in black or gray
  • Designed for 2nd generation iPod shuffle

iVault aluminum case for iPod nano is the ultimate protective case for iPod. Imagine putting your iPod nano inside a custom-fit all-metal enclosure -- and still being able to access screen, control wheel, ports, and switch.

iVault is a full metal jacket for your iPod nano. Slip your iPod nano inside and snap iVault closed around it. The two halves of iVault's case are held together with tiny but very strong magnets. An integrated cover protects both screen and click wheel. An included rubber plug closes the port at the bottom until you're ready to use the dock connector of your iPod.

iVault™ for iPod nano features:

  • Encloses your iPod nano in a secure metal case without adding weight or bulk
  • Preserves access to screen, wheel and ports
  • Rubber plug for iPod nano dock connector keeps port protected until you need it
  • No tools required
  • Available in metallic silver finish
  • Compatible with 1st and 2nd generation iPod nano
