Review: Invisible Shield for iPod Nano 3G
When I received my shiny new iPod Nano 3G, I immediately started watching out for protection. Luckily, ZAGG already had their Invisible Shield product on pre-order. So far, I used Invisible Shield on every single one of my iPods – I *hate* scratches…
From their web site:
“Made from a unique material originally created for the military to protect the leading edges of helicopter blades, the invisibleSHIELD offers protection that other screen protectors just can’t match. With over 1,000 copyrighted, precision-cut designs for a variety of gadgets, including MP3 players, PDA’s, and cell phones, the invisibleSHIELD is the industry leader in screen protection.
And we don’t just offer screen protectors; we’ve designed full-body shields that protect your entire gadget. With our patent-pending wrap of the full-body, your device will always look like it did the day you bought it.”
The Nano full body shield arrived last week. Here is what it looks like.
As you can see from the pictures, it really is next to invisible. It will also iron out any bubbles left over from applying automatically after a few days.
The version for the new Nano is one of the best fitting so far. I was a bit sceptical because of the non-acrylic front of the new Nano, but the foil fits snuggly. I did cut off the edges of the foil (the tiny parts that wrap around the corners – they either didn’t stick or overlap with the other foil.
All in all, another wonderful Invisible Shield experience. It makes the iPod appear glossy on the front, but I guess that can’t be helped.
