...or any full size iPod for that matter. I really don't like how the rear of the iPod Touch and Classic is that shiny mirror surface that gets prints on it and scratches easily. So I was thinking that I could buy an invisible shield that normally goes on the front side (but it has to be one for the iPhone/iPod Touch so it is large enough to fit the back), and just put it on the rear side. Would this work? If it works, than every couple months or so I can just replace the shield and the back of the iPod will look like new forever! Comments?

No the front and back come in separate parts, look at the 5G installation video http://66.54.222.4/flash/ipod_installation.html

I pre-ordered the iPod Touch full body shield.

They should be doing the invisishield's the same way still which is, for $24.95, you get something that will cover the front and the back. It's two separate pieces so you can just put the back on. Unfortunately, for iPod classic owners, I doubt the screen is separate. I'd personally like to protect the back and the screen and leave the rest of the front open. Oh well.

Why would you want to replace it every couple months? I bought mine two years ago and it still looks fantastic. Invisishield's are difficult to put on and you have to leave the device off for 24 hours while it dries, but, in my opinion, the end result is worth it.

You know what works really well and is pretty cheap? A screen protector for a PDA or the PSP. The iPod video was the perfect size for the screen protector, I just had to cut a little bit off. I'm sure the same protector will fit the Touch, front and back, they hold on for a pretty long time, it's better than having a full on case for the pod, as it won't make it any bigger. But eventually the thing starts coming off... But at 5 bucks for a case of (10) I think, that should be enough to last one a few months.
