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!
The iPad 2 is great for simple daily tasks like checking email, web browsing, and casual gaming. But iOS’s onscreen keyboard can be frustrating when you need to do some serious typing. Even with loads of practice, virtual keys will never replace the flow of a real keyboard. Fortunately, the latest trend in iPad acessories is Bluetooth-enabled keyboard cases that do double duty, transforming your iPad 2 into a tiny laptop computer and protecting your tablet while they’re at it.
Yes, you guys are awesome to the power of $1,171. That's a lot of cash! Nice going!

Meaning yeah, they're still ahead of us. But we've got two weeks left to catch them, and an unprecidented glut of 33 prizes to give away this week, so find out how you can get in on the action, after the jump...
In this edition Best Case Scenario, we're checking out new iPad sleeves from Timbuk2 and Haul, a hardshell case from iSkin, and we've got a special edition of Face Off, our new section where we review two products that are similiar in their utility, but different in their performance. This week, we're taking a look at iPad cases that transform you tablet device into a horizontal-standing Netbook, so you can show off to your Windows-loving brethern that you don't need to drop $300 on a cheap computer just to have the same mobile functionality as a full-sized notebook. Who's laughing now, eh?
If you’ve ever had your iPhone slide into the crack between your front
seats while driving, the appeal of a dedicated car mount is obvious.
While we usually take the “throw it in the cupholder” approach, that’s
not always the best move when you want to actually hear your phone
ringing. Kensington’s latest iPhone car mount attempts to not only keep
your phone handy, but also pumps up the volume enough so that you might
actually hear it ringing.
We’ve all been there: You’re away from home, your iPhone is dead, and you really need to call someone. Or maybe you just hopped on the bus, and the only empty seat is next to that lady who talks to everyone—and your iPod just ran out of juice. Kensington’s battery packs can come to your rescue, recharging a dead iPhone or iPod without the need for a really, really long extension cord.
