If there's one thing as potentially lucrative as the iPad, it's the market for iPad accessories, particularly cases used to protect them — and few companies build them as well as Logitech, which debuted two new folios this week.
Logitech makes one of the better iPad keyboard covers around, but what if you prefer to protect the back of your tablet as well? The accessory maker answers the call yet again with its latest Keyboard Folio product.
With every new Apple product comes a wave of accessories for same, and the new iPad mini will surely be no exception. If you're looking for a case with a hardware keyboard for yours, Belkin has just the thing.
Remember when hardcover books had canvas covers? Well, they don't make them like that anymore, and with ebooks rising in popularity you might as well outfit your iPad as an old book. Right? That seems to be the trend. Cygnett's Alumni canvas case for iPad feels exactly like one of those books, and protects your tablet, too.
Bet you never thought your iPad could do origami, did you? Well, with the Incipio LGND Hard Shell Convertible Case, it can! This folio-style case lets you fold up its suede flaps into a fabulous little stand for your iPad. There are magnets on either side of the flaps and the back of the case to pin it all together, so you don't have to worry about origami that won't stay put (I think they call that cheating in some circles). Fold the flap over one way to type, and the other to stand up the iPad and watch LOST, like I've been doing since I got this case.
Griffin's Passport for iPad Foilo turns your iPad into a classy affair. The Folio opens up like a book to reveal the iPad hidden underneath, which is strapped in by four elastic bands securing each corner. Inside is lined by microsuede, which feels soft to touch and keeps the iPad screen smudge free. Another strap on the Passport's backside keeps the Folio sealed together.
