I'm afraid that a hard case will scratch the backside of the 'Touch'. Actually, I'm a bit paranoid about it, since I keep reading how easily the caseback on iPods scratch. I would like a Rebel Touch. But, it looks like I will have to order that case. And, I still might. I just want to go ahead and get my 16GB Touch, and have it protected immediately. Griffin offers something similar, I think, that is completely open across the bottom. Anyone have experience with these. Also, Griffin offers the Wave Interlocking Case. My concern on this one is that it is a slider case. Isn't that more prone to cause scratches, as well, especially since the bottom slides off to allow easy docking? Thanks!
