This Friday, March 11th is the release day of Apple’s newest device, the iPad2. That means that many case manufacturers are scrambling to release new cases either at launch or shortly after in order to catch the influx of all the new potential buyers who need cases. One such company is Case-Mate. We are big fans of Case-Mate here at G Style as we have used many of their cases personally for devices such as Blackberry, iPhone, and Android phones that we all use here. I personally have owned several Case-Mate cases for most of my mobile devices I have acquired over the past 3 years.
Right now on Case-Mate’s site, you’ll see a small preview of what Case-mate will offer for the Apple iPad2 but today, we have a special inside look at these cases with a bit more details on what each case will feature.
Case-MateÂ®, known for its innovative accessories that protect, adorn and enhance mobile technology, today unveiled a collection of cases for the Apple iPad 2, the latest release after its highly successful iPad. The collection includes seven new accessories, from sleek and sophisticated to bold and playful, perfect for any fashion sensibility or occasion.
â€œCase-Mate developed a broad line of iPad 2 cases which satisfies a range of consumer desires,â€ says Shashi Reddy, founder and CEO of Case-Mate. â€œFrom high design to functionality to playfulness, Case-Mate offers early adopters the best case designs for their new devices.â€
Below are the 6 new cases that Case-Mate will debut over the next couple of weeks including a new anti-glare, anti-fingerprint screen protector. Some of the cases are modified versions of current iPad cases they make, but the rest are brand new cases just for the iPad2. My favorites here might be the Venture and the Versant cases that look very classy as well as being multifunctional. Hopefully, we’ll get a chance to take a much closer look at all these cases once they are released.
Pop!, $49.99: Offering a support system like no other, the iPad 2 Pop! case brings a new standard to the power of two. Co-molded materials of plastic and soft rubber unite to create a hard case with a soft touch. A built in stand extends for an ideal viewing screen or remains hidden to create a flat back cover. Available in black/grey and white/grey.
Simple, $34.99: Go retro with the Simple Slab. This two-toned protective case strips the iPad 2 down to its truest geometric form, a rectangle. Straightforward and linear, the angular case looks unforgiving but is actually squishy and grippy; blurring the lines between high design and playfulness. Available in black, orange and blue.
Leo, $99.99: This high profile case unfolds into a portable workstation that is perfect for boardroom meetings and road warriors. Made of leather and nylon, Leo comes equipped with a convenient grip handle for an easy carry solution. Secured with a zipper closure, the textured embossed case features an adjustable viewing stand and provides convenient storage for a notebook and pens. Available in black.
Venture, $49.99: This case is a case that is meant to be seen. Take it out on the town or into a meeting, either way itâ€™s ready to perform. The Venture protects the device while on the go and doubles as a secure stand whenever and wherever itâ€™s needed. The stylish cover snaps closed to keep the screen scratch-free. Unsnap the cover, flip it over, and the Venture case works as a stable stand, ready to take notes or show your portfolio at a momentâ€™s notice. Available in black/red.
Versant, $39.99: This sophisticated tablet case folds back to reveal a multi-use design. Prop up your tablet using the built-in stand, which offers adjustable heights ideal for both viewing and typing. The attached nylon strap provides extra mobility when itâ€™s just one of those days. Available in black, brown and pink.
Gelli, $29.99: Stand out from the sea of monotonous cases with the Gelli iPad 2 case. Striking flashes of translucent colors blend together for an eye-catching case that offers protection and individual style. The form fitting shape of the Gelli absorbs impacts and offers a soft grip.
