iPod Touch 5th gen 16GB cases - are there any?

I am looking for a simple case in black, clear, frost, white, or gray for the new 16GB iPod touch. I do not want to use any made for the 32 and 64 GB models since they would have cutouts for the camera and loop and also they would not have a hole for the mic, which on the 16GB model has be relocated to the top of the device.

It is the exact same size as the all the other iPod touch 5g. I think you should settle for the cheapest case you can find that has cutouts. The device just came out and case companies still have to make them for the new device. Nothing came up on amazon.

No thanks. I don't want a cheap case, and further, I'm waiting for a proper case. No hurry here.

I've already got one from Handheld Items. They have the best crystal clear ones in my opinion-- like nothing is on the device at all. I've been buying them for years.

Hi, I'm having the same problem. I'm getting the 16gb ipod touch 5 in 3 weeks and im trying to look at cases for it ahead of time. I've only found 3 which is ridiculous lol.

I picked up a flip case on Amazon, no cutout for the camera, it was a flaw on the case, made for the previous 5g's that omitted the camera hole, you had to take out the touch to use the camera, a negative on the case, but a positive for the 16gb

Do you possibly have a link? I'm looking for a proper 16gb case after having a regular case for a few weeks now and I don't like the holes for the camera/wrist strap part that I don't have!
