It’s no secret that I own a Zune. (It is my four-year-old’s music player of choice–kind of the Fisher-Price iPod.) It’s also no secret that I hated the pouch that came with it. It barely fit the Zune and was so much work to put on and take off the Zune that I eventually gave up, bought a generic mobile phone case from the dollar store and used that for protecting the Zune.
Yesterday, I was going through one of my boxes of iPod-related odds and ends while searching for a workable iPhone cover and came across the unused Zune pouch. It fit the iPhone beautifully. It’s very soft and protective. The cinch at the top isn’t worth a damn but the Zune-fob attached to the cinch makes a nice grab point.
If you work out the money, $100-odd bucks (the going rate for a Zune) is a bit pricey for a soft iPhone case but if you already have one around the house, it’s terrific.
