Apple iPod Nano Tubes Quick Take: Apple's first cases for the iPod Nano look strangely similar to EzGear EzSkins. The Tubes ($29) come in a pack of five neon-bright colors and are straightforward in their design and function. Slipping your Nano into the case protects it from dirt, rain (kind of), and other harmful objects flying at your iPod, but it lacks the plastic screen protector that comes with most of these flexible-style cases. The case itself is constructed with soft treated silicone that repels dust and gives full accessibility to both the connector and the headphone port. Although the Tubes for the Nano might initially look clean and bright, once you find your player at the bottom of your backpack, you're going to wish you had that EzSkins screen protector.
