Default Speck Releases PixelSkin Case for the Zune HD

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.speckproducts.com/products/pixelskin/zune-hd/205' target='_blank'>http://www.speckproducts.com/produc...kin/zune-hd/205</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Add the simple, stylish protection of PixelSkin to the smart, multifarious genius of your new Zune HD. Textured, angular design and soft silicone material are grippy in-hand and create a cool armored look. A "grip groundbreaker," PixelSkin has been road tested and user-approved, as an ever-popular protector of the iPhone and numerous other portable devices. Surf the web, stream music and video or flip through your set lists knowing your Zune is in tune and protected from inevitable tumbles and fumbles lying ahead!"</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1258049748.usr1.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>If you're looking for a case to protect your Zune HD from scratches and damage, the PixelSkin ($24.95 USD) looks like it will do the job nicely - though it does nothing to protect the screen. The question is, does the screen need protecting? The Zune HD has a <a href="http://www.corning.com/gorillaglass/index.aspx" target="_blank">Corning Gorilla Glass</a> screen that's <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSinEmsOGKo" target="_blank">quite resistant to damage</a>, so it doesn't need the same type of protection that a plastic screen would.</p>

Nice case but...a case that probably cost less than $5 to manufacture and package should not cost $25, maybe $15. When I purchased my Zune 120, I was able to find a great silicone case with an armband for $7at handhelditems.com

True...$25 is pretty steep for a silicone case.

And it is available in any color you want, as long as that is black.

I got the custom etching on the back of my Zune. I don't want anything blocking this. So if it had a clear or open back, I might be interested.
