Official press release after the ‘leap’
Military Grade, Ultra-Thin Protection Preserves Devices’ Sleek Design Without Adding Bulk
SALT LAKE CITY, Sep 22, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — ZAGG, Inc. (OTCBB: ZAGG), a company providing protective film coverings for personal electronics, announced the introduction of the invisibleSHIELD(TM) for the newly released iPod nano, touch and classic.
Known in the industry for launching the first accessory available for the latest gadgets, ZAGG’s invisibleSHIELD is made from a patented adhesive film exclusive to the company designed to protect high-performance electronic devices, such as MP3 players, mobile phones, PDAs, gaming devices and laptops.
The new fourth generation iPod nano, touted as the thinnest iPod ever made, comes in an array of colors and features a wider screen display. The redesigned iPod touch also sports a thin, contoured shape and stainless steel back that necessitates a form of protection that does not add bulk. The invisibleSHIELD by ZAGG is created from a 0.2 mm thick scratch-proof material that comes custom-cut to SHIELD the full body of all the new iPod models, wrapping the complete iPod in a protective layer without affecting the usability of buttons or touch-screen functions.
“Apple(R) has once again fused cutting-edge design with improved function,” says Robert G. Pedersen II, President and CEO of ZAGG. “The invisibleSHIELD offers lifetime protection that preserves the sharp, sleek aesthetic Apple is known for. The thinner design of the new iPod models coupled with the increased area of the nano’s wider display makes durable yet invisible protection an even greater necessity. The fact that the new nano is the thinnest iPod ever made, and the invisibleSHIELD is the thinnest scratch-proof protective skin makes it a perfect fit.”
The ultra-tough material used to create the invisibleSHIELD was originally utilized by the U.S. military to protect helicopter blades from wind, sand and the wear and tear of high-speed travel. Combining this military-grade scratch protection with precision-cut designs, the invisibleSHIELD, backed by a lifetime guarantee, allows customers to use their electronics without the fear of scratches or nicks.
