    I want a new case for my first generation iPod touch, one that I don't have to take off every time I put it in my dock. Does any case like this exist? Please post links.

    Any case with a skin will work for sure. Not sure about like the leather and pleather ones.

    The Incase Slider allows you to use a dock without removing the device from its case.

    I am in the same situation. I originally bought a 1G Belkin leather folio until I could get my RebelTouch. I can't type numbers/letters near the edges of the folio. I loved the RebleTouch, but couldn't use my bluetooth dongle or dock it in my iJuke or clock radio.

    The choices for hard/semi-hard cases seem to be (grades from iLounge):

    1. The Griffin Nuform: some report it scratches the iPod. (<$20) (Grade B)
    2. The Griffin Wave: seems okay, shows wear and tear. (<$20) (no grade yet)
    3. Incase Slider: expensive - $30 (C+, mostly for price)
    4. Casemate Dockster: leather - $30 (no grade)
    5. Speck SeeThru: bottom slides off to be a stand, colors ($15) (Grade B)

    The Casemate and Speck haven't received a lot of press. I like the idea of the Casemate, because it is leather, and less likely to scratch the back of the iPod. The idea of the slide off back also being a stand is very appealing for the Speck.

    My 2 cents,
    Diana

    As I stated in my post, I have the RebelTouch by SwitchEasy. It increases the thickness of the unit too much. It does not fit in my Jansen clock radio dock or my Crosley iJuke dock. I even tried other iPod dock adapters in the hope I could make it work with no success. I also had to clip the neoprene strip between the headphone jack and dock connector on the RebelTouch to allow for my bluetooth dongle to be fully inserted.

    I loved the RebelTouch for its style and protection but its dockability is inadequate. The case has to be completely removed for docking situations.

    I even looked into SendStation's Dock Extender, which would have made the case usable for docking, but I didn't like the added length the extender and my dongle would have created.

    My experience,
    Diana
