Slope is a new Kickstarter project that aims to be not only multifunctional but is designed in a way that makes you wonder why Apple themselves didn't design something similar. The best part is, it doesn't only work for with the iPad, but any tablet you have laying around.
The iGrip Headrest Tablet Kit allows you to secure your iPad to the seat of your vehicle to keep your little pests -- i’m mean, your sweet innocent children! -- entertained on those long drives to the grandparents house, whether it's across town, or across country.
Thanks to an adjustable, extensible holder, the iGrip Headrest Tablet Kit easily fits the iPad, and might even be able to scale down to fit smaller tablets depending on their exact dimensions when and if they launch...
The Addo Slate Shield Case for iPad is a hard case with a couple of really convenient extras. First, it has a strap on the back that lets you easily carry your iPad around single-handed. Second, it has a kickstand that lets you just as easily prop your iPad up for work or entertainment.
The Us + U Simple Swivel Case for iPad is beautiful and innovative. It has a soft, plush design. It's not leather but leather-like, but what I like most is the smart hand strap mounted on a swivel on the back. It rotates any which way you like, which makes it really easy to carry around.
There are several good Bluetooth keyboard options for the iPad but the Brydge is simply cool. It aims to make your iPad look like a MacBook Pro, complete with aerospace-grade, anodized aluminum, and optional stereo speakers. Brydge connects to the iPad using a special hinge that "clicks-in" and provides almost 180 degrees of rotation. That means your iPad will be held securely, and at just the perfect angle for you to view it.
Logitech has just announced what may very well be the most nicely-designed Bluetooth iPad keyboard to date. While many keyboard accessories have tried turn turn the iPad into pseudo-laptop with an extended case or folio, Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover makes use of the iPad's built-in magnet mounts to securely cover the screen when not in use.
The Pad & Quill Contega case for the new iPad updates their spectacular iPad 2 case for Apple's third generation tablet. Granted, it's not a major change -- they've teased that will come soon enough -- but it does make the adjustments necessary to get an already fabulous case working on the latest iPad. That makes this review really simple: if you loved the Contega on your iPad 2, you'll love it on your new iPad. If you didn't try it on your previous iPad, or this is your first iPad, and you're a fan of the moleskin look and feel, then you're in for a real treat.
The Converge USB charging hub from Think Geek is a fun, futon-inspired stand for your iPhone, iPod tour or iPad. Working on an Apple mobile blog like iMore means you start to amass a lot of Apple mobile devices and even if I'm only using an iPhone and an iPad every day, keeping them both charged in an easy, elegant way has proven to be more of a challenge than I originally imagined. Converge looks like a great way to do just that.
