Thanks to Apple's secrecy, when they Introduce a new gadget, case makers have to scramble to make accessories that fit it properly. The new iPad is a perfect example, yet Gumdrop
was able to create and ship their ruggedized Gumdrop Drop Tech case
rather quickly. In fact,while the case I received fit my new iPad perfectly, though the package it shipped in still said iPad 2, but it had a sticker indicating support for the new iPad.
The folks at Ten One
have been making iOS accessories since the early days, with their Pogo stylus, but their latest creation is something quite unique. Suppose you want to keep your iPad naked, without a case, and you want to prop it up,with a stand. Most stands are obtrusive and take away from the iPad's sleek look. Not the Magnus
. It is a slick chunk of aluminum with a few pads for protection, and some hidden magnets, like Apple's SmartCover. This allows the iPad to magically 'stick' to the stand, although it must do so in exactly one configuration, landscape with the dock connector on the right.
I like to change my iPhone case frequently, depending on the situation. This weekend, I participated in a Startup Weekend (my app won Best Mobile App, by the way!) so I needed a case with a battery pack, during the 54 hour marathon session.
Thanks to Apple's secrecy, when they Introduce a new gadget, case makers have to scramble to make accessories that fit it properly. The new iPad is a perfect example, yet OtterBox was able to create and ship their ruggedized iProtection case
rather quickly. In fact, before the new iPad was announced, back when everyone expected it to be called the iPad 3, OtterBox was teasing the press, promising an iPad 3 case would be ready almost immediately.
Incipio sent me a few cases to look at recently and here are my thoughts.
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.
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.
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.
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.
