Here's the question though: do we need new design protective cases or we can get away with the protective cases now used for the 5.5G iPod video?

Hard cases won't work, but soft cases will.

remember too that the edges are more rounded, so (considereing also the half mm difference) cases might not fit as snugly

I plan to use a soft case since most hard cases add way too much weight to the player. This isn't like my current 2G iPod nano, where I use a DLO case that adds very little to the weight of the player.

I love my little sleve that came with my 5th Gen iPod, it's thin, lightweight and protects the iPod well. If the classic doesn't come with one I am just going to use my old one. I lost it for about 8 months so I know what can happen to the screen and the chrome backing if you leave it unprotected in your pocket, I am not letting the classic get scratched like my 5th Gen did.

The best thing for protecting against scratches is the all over plastic film. That works great and keeps the iPod nice.
