An authorized Apple reseller in Portugal has started selling new cases for the upcoming, camera-equipped iPod Touch and iPod Nano.
Promai’s Jivo TPA cases look for the most part like the new cases out of China, but for one important detail: the placement of the headphone jack on the iPod Touch.
Look carefully at the Portuguese pix, and you’ll see the headphone jack has moved to the top, like the iPhone’s. But in the Chinese cases, the headphone jack is at the bottom, like current models. I’m inclined to put more faith in the Chinese cases, whose makers say they have good intelligence about Apple’s new offerings.
