Jaguar Hypes Limited Edition Black iPod Giveaway

Visitors to Jaguaris X-Type Web site are being given a chance to win the one remaining special edition black iPod from a special run of 75 made last year, the company announced Monday. Those who sign up are eligible to win the portable player, which will be given away on August 1 from Jaguaris Web site.

The giveaway is a marketing campaign by Jaguar and is not a co-venture sponsored by Apple, The Mac Observer has learned.

As has been mentioned by a number of Mac-related news forums around the Web Monday, a number of companies produce black-colored iPod cases for consumers to buy, including custom paint designer ColorWare, Inc. of Winona, Minn. A company representative told The Mac Observer Monday that it has made many custom-colored iPod cases for corporations since it started the service last December, but the company would not say who those customers were.
