Latest ipad cases blogs
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.
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!"
When I saw the iPadFlex from UZBL (as in usable) at MacWorld, I wasn't sure what to make of it. Is it an iPad case, a stand, a handle, a tripod, a suction mount, or a carrying strap? The answer is, all of the above. You can add and subtract elements to make your iPadFlex perform exactly as you wish!
I like M-Edge cases
, and have written about their personalized Design-Your-Own cases in the past. I had one made up with a cover replicating an issue of iPhone Life Magazine!
Such custom logo'ed cases make great business gifts. But some of us iPad owners also have kids and need a more rugged, childproof case. So I was excited to see their latest offering, the SuperShell
