I need to take off my iPhonelife hat for a minute to talk about this vendor's products. In my other life, I build and design computer systems, some of which are deployed to hostile locations (I have on occasion had to deploy along with them). Pelican is a name I have trusted for a long time to protect sensitive computer equipment, and so I was pleased to learn they have an iPod/iPhone line of cases. I certainly didn't have the ability to field test their iPod and iPhone stuff at the show, but if they are nearly as reliable and durable as the full-sized computer cases I have used, then they are very good. More shots of their product line from CES below..
Pelican offers cases that are crushproof, weatherproof (the one above is merely a protector case model), and still allow you to connect your headphones through the case. I would like a version with a dock connector as well, but hey you can't have everything in a hardened case (and keep it under 50 bucks).
Stay tuned for more great CES coverage...
