The Drop Tech case is serious, with hard plastic where needed, and rubberized coating as an outlet layer, ideal for grip and protection. Ports are protected by rubber flaps and the larger camera opening on the new iPad is supported.
The rubber looks like a monster truck tread. It takes a bit of effort to get the iPad in and out, so you might want to make this your everyday case. Fortunately, it is comfortable to hold for extended time.
Several color variations are available, including black, white, red, pink and olive drab.
Gumdrop should be saluted for their rapid response to support the new iPad, but it shouldn't be a surprise as they support a wide variety of devices including Kindle Fire, Asus eee pad Transformer, Samsung Galaxy Tab and of course the iPhone.
