I guess I probably should have read the other reviews properly before ordering, as they seem to mention the main problem with the design of the thing; the at the base of the case is on the wrong side to allow earphones to be inserted whilst the case is closed. And, yes, I have the iPod in the correct way as the camera lens/flash line up perfectly.
Which is a shame, as other than that it's quite a decent case for the price. Well, apart from there being no way to plug it in to a charger while the case is closed, but that's no biggie.
I guess I'll get a hole puncher out and try to put a hole in the correct place for the earphones... oh, well... :(
