Still looking desperately for an iPad 2? Assuming you’re content with a Wi-Fi only model in a small or mid-sized capacity, you might want to saunter over to your local Toys “R” Us store, where you may finally be able to get your hands on one.
This week's Best Case Scenario is essentially part deux of last week's iPad 2 round up. We got a couple more cases in over the weekend from various manufacturers and have had a chance to try them out with our new tablet device. This week, we've got cases from Incipio, Targus and a very special case from Pad & Quill.
It's all iPad 2 all the time in the press these days, which will last, oh until the rumors about the iPhone 5 grow too big and take over the press cycle. Apple has a sweet release schedule that keeps their latest and greatest right there at the top of every news queue, so just in case you missed some of our killer coverage, it's this week's round up of all our latest and greatest.
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.
Third-party companies are already releasing iPad 2 cases. While we don't have a whole lot available just yet, we'll be updating this gallery with photos of all the latest iPad 2 cases to show you how they fit on your precious new toy.
Oh, it's tough alright -- sort of tough to get on, but at least you can be rest assured that it'll stay on and keep your new iPad 2 out of harm's way. The case also features a non-slip grip, which will keep you from dropping the iPad 2 when you're picking it up.
This Scosche form-fitting case is flexible and made of translucent rubber. The only caveat is that it covers the volume control of the iPad 2, and with its new, slanted body-type, that can make accessing the volume button difficult.
This Folio case from Scosche folds out into different orientations so that you can comfortably watch a film with the iPad 2 laying down on your knees, or prop up the device to type up an email. While it does add bulk to the iPad 2's relatively thin form-factor, it does protect the device in its entirety.
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.
