It's hard to differentiate yourself if you are a case maker for iPads or iPhones, so it was nice to see the Powis iCase
at MacWorld. They have found several ways to set themselves apart, and create a nice case in the process.
There are a lot of companies making waterproof cases for phones and even tablets, but not too many can say they supply the Navy SEALs! Watershed
can, with their DryBags.com
line of serious survival equipment.
Their Grid Tablet Bag is like a ziplock bag on steroids. The UV resistant polyurethane laminated nylon is combines with an airtight ZIPDRY seal with welded seams and mil-spec stitching.
A couple years ago, I reviewed the Ektopad F1 for iPad. Since then they have developed other iPad cases. They are currently working on a Flex Kit. The press release info is below. Check it out.
“For the past year our protective covers have been used by schools and kids around the country. Feedback from parents and educators lead us to integrate additional features and attachments to prevent the drops and to allow the iPad to be comfortable to hold and maneuver.
I've been playing with the original iCade for a few months (see original article here), and it's been great fun, but it sure ain't portable.
Well, the folks at ION have come through. At CES, they showed off their new iCade Jr., which brings arcade-style joystick and buttons from the larger model to the iPhone and iPod touch.
It was inevitable. As iPads find their way into the hands of kids (my kids inherited my iPad 1 when I upgraded to the iPad 2), we are seeing a whole new line of kid-friendly tablet accessories.
The latest examples are from Dean Designs and include Tablet Teddy Bears, Tablet Pet Pals, and Tablet Bean Bags. They are all cut from the same cloth, so to speak, which is a variety of cozy, stuffed animal style fake fur, with places to prop up an iPad or other tablet.
The iPad was meant to be turned into an Etch-A-Sketch! With the officially licensed Etch-A-Sketch case, from Headcase, combined with the iOS app, you can wow your friends, classmates, and colleagues. Everyone has thought of it, but Headcase went ahead and did it, for both the iPhone and iPad.
You can't help but smile when you see the case. And when you use the app, it all comes back to you. Of course you can shake it to erase it... It wouldn't be legitimate without that feature!
I saw the iBallz folks at MacWorld last year, when, true to their name, they were displaying their products guerilla-marketing style... No booth, but showing their products to anyone who would give them a chance. What a difference a year makes, as they had a serious booth at CES and will also be there, officially, at MacWorld.
It takes a lot for a case maker to stand out at CES or BestBuy for that matter. But XAWireless has managed to do so with a line of inspirational gear. Their eco-friendly natural cases are made of bamboo with words of wisdom engraved in the wood.
This came in one of the press releases last week, but I’m just getting to it now. It’s a test of one of the G-Form cases. I’m a little skeptical of this but you have to check the video out. It is a great HD video.
Apple does a lot of things right, but an integrated lanyard clip might have helped to prevent dropped (and broken) phones. Then again, AppleCare revenue might be an incentive not to. Enter EK Ekcessories who have been making rugged retention accessories for outdoor, recreation and security since 1985 in Utah. They are addressing the iOS market with a line of rugged leashes that use a 30pin dock connector to attach to the iPhone, iPod touch or even an iPad!
