Strotter, makers of the Platforma convertible messenger bag, are back this season with a new iPad case called the Across. Available in a variety of different designer colors, the $99 Across is an over-the-shoulder bag for the iPad that quickly converts into a standing case, so you can get work done without having to find a place to sit.
To be perfectly honest, when I first saw the Cooler Master Elegance Collection cases for iPad, I wasn't sure I liked the look. They're made of 100% synthetic wool felt reminded me of the art I used to make as a child, or something like a faux-finish. However, the more I used them, the more they grew on me.
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.
The Incipio Premium KICKSTAND Case with Stylus for the iPad packs a lot of features into one solid package. Not only is it a folio with a secure flap, but as the name implies it comes packing a kickstand for excellent -- and multiple -- viewing angles, and even a stylus pen for note-taking, drawing, and gaming.
The Apple Smart Case for iPad is one of the most un-Apple-like products I've ever seen
Immediately following the keynote at WWDC, Apple silently announced a new case for the iPad called the Smart Case that offers customers a way to protect the back of their iPad while still utilizing the functionality of a Smart Cover -- well, in theory.
