chicBoom - Speaker and case for your Gen 4 iPodSo new, I’ve not even seen one yet! The new ChicBoom speaker by chicBuds –doubles as an iPod case providing audio and protection for your iPod in one piece! Something I could use!

The Slim Line Nano SoundBag’s audio connection is through a 3.5mm jack and it’s powered by two AAA batteries.  These were designed to coordinate with the Gen4 iPod Nano players, but I’m thinking I could slip my G3 into one easily as it works with other MP3 players.

If I can get my hands on one soon I’ll share the sound quality with you. For now, I’m just excited about the features!
