For those who think Apple’s iPod nano looks best just like it is, invisibleSHIELD offers the “iPod nano Full Body Protector”- an invisible, full-body wrap for the new iPod nano.
iPod nanos are made of the same materials as other iPods from Apple, but black iPod nano units tend to show scratches due to their dark color.
Accroding to InvisibleSHIELD, their “screen protectors can withstand major abuse. In fact, some of their resellers demo the product by jabbing the pointy ends of scissors into the screen protector – after they’ve installed the invisibleSHIELD on an iPod. The protectors are made of the same material as ones originally created to protect military helicopter blades.”
The InvisibleSHILED “iPod nano Full Body Protector” retails for US$19.95.
InvisibleSHILED also offers protectors for iPod, iPod mini, and iPod shuffle.
Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller this past Tuesday said, “If customers are concerned about scratching we suggest they use one of the many iPod nano cases to protect their iPod.”

We hope to do a hands-on review of these protectors soon.
