Review: Incipio iPhone 4/4S Stowaway

image

and let me add..."Credit Card Hard Shell Case with Silicone Core".  That's the official name of this case on Incipio's website. For brevity I'll just call is the Stowaway.

The first thing I always ask myself is "who is the case made for?" In the case of this case, I've selected three audiences:

  • men with gym memberships
  • men out on the town, particular at clubs
  • teenagers

A review for each.

Men with gym memberships



Reflections on the OtterBox Reflex Series iPad 2 case

image

I was skeptical when I pulled the OtterBox Reflex Series for iPad 2 case out of its box. After taking it apart it kind of went to pieces. And I had to put them back together again. And the result was a good one. My iPad 2 has been sporting the OtterBox Reflex Series for a couple of days, except when attending business meetings (when it dresses up in a Qmadix Portfolio - more on that in an upcoming print edition of iPhone Life).

This $29.99 was a bit of a revelation for me. I love cases, and have many to play with (keep reading...I have a good backlog of iPhone cases I'll be writing about over the next few weeks).

Don't leave us hanging, what revelation? The revelation that a case can almost make a phone feel lighter. I know, that doesn't make any sense, but this case fits so well, and adds just the right grip feel so that holding an iPhone feels better with the case on than with it off—and better than any case I've come across yet. 



iHangy Lets You Keep Your iPhone Close to Your Chest

I've written about the iDangle before, and while it has some advantages, there's a new kid in town called the iHangy that might appeal to the ladies.





Quick review of my quick new iPad

image
So the new iPad (which I will probably still call the iPad 3) has arrived, and I've migrated my contents and settings from my iPad 2 to it.


While some of my existing cases are too wedded to the iPad 2 form factor, my REV360 from Hub Innovations is fitting the bill nicely.



Widge is a fun and protective wedge shaped case for your iPad

image
I have been using a new iPad case from x-doria.com called the Widge. It's a protective hard foam case in the shape of a wedge. It looks a bit like an oversized doorstop, but the shape gives you two different angles for viewing and typing, but it also provides a couple of ways to grip the Widge.





Protect that new iPad

image
If you're like me, you ordered the new iPad as soon as Apple's servers allowed, and you are waiting patiently (or perhaps impatiently) for it to arrive. Now is the time to think about protection. In fact, I sold my old iPad at SellYourMac.com and got full price because it was in such good shape. I keep my iPads and iPhones in cases pretty much full time and they look brand new. Now keep in mind, the new iPad is slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad 2, and has a bigger opening for the camera, so there's a chance your old case might not work.

A Tale of Two Bags: One a Retro Military-Inspired Satchel, the Other a Futuristic Earth-Friendly Messenger Bag

image

Two distinct messenger style bags arrived this week, and they presented a nice contrast. The Trench Runner from M-Edge is a retro, army surplus-inspired satchel with several compartments for cables, chargers, and, of course, an iPad. The Narwhal from GreenSmart is an eco-friendly messenger bag (backpacks and duffels are available as well) with a strong emphasis on recycling.


 



If the Pelican i1075 is just a case, then Fort Knox is just a playground fort #CES #MadeInUSA

I don't think it's fair to call the Pelican i1075 HardBack IPad Case a "case" when it is so much more rugged and substantial than typical iPad cases. Perhaps a better term is "safebox" or "strongbox!"
