J&R is taking pre-orders on another iPod Nano protection scheme. Instead of a case they are offering Nano's custom painted with X2 scratch resistant liquid plastic coating. The iPods are cleaned, painted and cured under UV light to apply the coatings which come in six different color combinations. The process adds about $65 to the price of the Nano, so it comes close to what a normal case might cost.
