The iPad 2 is already a very stylish tablet on it’s own but trying to find the right case for it without decreasing it’s aesthetic appeal can be quite a challenge. Many times, cases for the iPad 2 negate it’s slender form and cover up all the goodies that make the iPad 2 so attractive. It’s because of this that I’m always on a continuous search for the perfect case that blends style and function without compromising either.

The new Booq Viper Slider comes close to what what I would consider an ideal iPad 2 case. The Booq Viper Slider features complete protection for the rear and sides of your iPad 2. It’s made from durable polycarbonate, but unlike other plain-jane cases out there, this one features a stylish leatherette exterior that makes the iPad 2 easier to hold in your hand. The interior of the Viper Slider is just as nice as it features a soft lining in order to keep your iPad 2 back scratch free.

The one feature that really makes the Booq Viper Slider stand out is that the case features a handy slide out bottom portion that allows you to attach the iPad 2 to a dock without having to fully remove the case from the device. This is very handy as many cases out there do not support the use of a dock and make you remove the iPad 2 in order to do so.

The Booq Viper Slider is available now from their website for $39.95 which in all honesty, isn’t a bad price at all for something of this nature.
