I know, the iPad is coming out in just a few days. What am I doing reviewing iPhone cases? Well, I'm pretty sure that while you're waiting for your new Apple tablet, you're probably reading this article from your iPhone. And, you need to protect it if it falls. Let's take a look at the BodyGuardz MyKase, the company's new line of protective cases for the iPhone 4 and 4S.
In this week's Best Case Scenario, I ignored the fact that you just dropped gobs of money on that brand new iPhone 4S and reviewed iPad 2 cases instead. Mostly because a majority of the cases that fit the CDMA iPhone 4 will also fit your iPhone 4S. It's like magic! Money-saving magic. Maybe.
This week, check out a protective snap-on case from Macally, a very-thin carrier from Bodyguardz, a faux-SmartCover case from Griffin and a super-secure Security Case from Kensington. Read on!
Just like you'd do everything to prepare for a new member of the family, you should do the same for your precious new tablet, too. While the Smart Cover is definitely new and innovative, it's not enough to keep the entire chassis of the iPad 2 covered -- that's why you need a case. While there aren't a ton available just yet -- the iPad's only been available for less than a week -- companies like Xtreme Mac, BodyGuardz and Scosche already have cases ready for your new toy, and we've already reviewed 'em. Click through for a quick overview of some of the new cases, though keep in mind that they may not all be available yet.
If you'd rather go with the Smart Cover for your iPad 2, but want to cover the back, Bodyguardz makes a PVC-based film that's really strong and protects from scuffs. One caveat, however: the carbon fiber skin is difficult to match up with the docking port on the bottom of the iPad 2 and the back-facing camera.
