Exclusive: Incipio Metal cases for Zune

July 22, 2008 | by Harvey Chute

Incipio metal Zune cases

I have just spent a very enjoyable evening testing and photographing Incipio's soon-to-be-released metal cases for Zune. In this Zunerama exclusive (thanks, Incipio!), you'll see why the fit, finish, and overall form of these cases is something to be excited about.

I received six cases from Incipio: three each for my Zune 80GB and Zune 8GB/4GB players. Both cases have a clear front shield that protects the screen, and open access to buttons and touch pad.

They are feather-light cases - made of very thin anodized aluminum - that add very little weight and almost no bulk to your player.

The upper and lower halves of the case slide together precisely, with a groove guiding the two pieces together. A pair of circular nubs in the base settle into openings on the top half to secure the two pieces together.

You can switch between a spring-clasp belt clip and a kickstand clip. As far as I have seen, this is the first kickstand case for a flash Zune - great for comfortable viewing angles for videos and slideshows.

What will really wow you, though, is the finish. These cases are really eye-popping - some of the most beautiful cases I've seen and held.

I can't decide if I like the Antique Copper best, or the pink. Others may prefer the gleaming chrome or more matte-like black. The rich colors look great on the anodized finish.

Here are a few more shots; to really appreciate these cases, though, you need to get over to our photo review.
