OtterBox iPad cases now shipping

Posted in Otterbox by Shane McGlaun on August 11th, 2010

If you have an iPad you may have worried on more than one occasion that a drop would kill your beloved tablet, I know I have worried. My 5-year-old carts the thing all over the house playing Slingshot Cowboy and you never know when she will do something crazy like stand on it to reach the snack drawer.

OtterBox has unveiled a couple cases for the iPad that just might protect my tablet from the daily tribulations of having a young child using the thing. Most will be familiar with the Commuter and Defender line of cases from the various devices the cases are already available for, like the iPhone 4.

Mobile Edge has announced six new iPad Sleeves under their Sumo Brand. These sleeves are designed to protect your iPad from harm when you take it with you.

The neoprene sleeves act as a cushion protecting the iPad’s fragile display, while looking fun and colorful. The ladies will love this. The new sleeves will be available in Camo or Graffiti patterns, and various other color options. They will cost you $19.99 each and are backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

Sprint prepping iPod touch case with Wi-Fi hotspot?

Posted in Sprint by Conner Flynn on July 29th, 2010

Check this out. An FCC filing has signaled a unique Sprint plan to capture Apple device users. A ZTE device called the Peel would serve as an iPod touch case but would hold a full 3G-to-Wi-Fi mobile hotspot in its back. This would give the iPod and other nearby devices, an always-on 3G connection without needing a separate MiFi.

The Peel’s capabilities aren’t fully known, but it would obviously have its own battery; there’s no Dock Connector or similar attachment to whatever device it would hold. A mini USB port on one side will let owners charge from a computer or the wall power adapter.

Quirky Tilt for iPhone 4 surfaces

Posted in Mobile Accessories by Shane McGlaun on July 16th, 2010

Quirky has made some of the coolest gadgets and off the wall products I have seen over the last few months. The latest product to come from Quirky is for the iPhone 4 and is called the Tilt.

The Tilt case has a flip down section that can be used to prop the phone up in portrait or landscape modes. The case is offered in black or purple/white colors and the thing is a bumper style case. It should keep you from blocking the antenna and help reception too.

Slim Exolife iPhone 4 case boosts your battery

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on July 13th, 2010

If you want to double your iPhone 4′s battery life, the Exolife battery case claims to do just that. But even if it doesn’t, at least you get a case that’s slim, light, and will give you some extra juice. It’s good looking.

The case weighs just 59 grams including the rechargeable Lithium polymer battery. It even features a polycarbonate frame and an Illuminated power meter. It costs about $90 and will be available at the end of the month.

ArkHippo protects your iPhone, assaults your senses

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2010

We are all for protecting that expensive iPhone with the bad reception, but if it looks like you’ve wrapped a cinder block around your phone, we’ll pass. And that’s just what this case does. The ArkHippo is made of a proprietary material which is somewhat similar Crocs shoes, so you can drop it without worrying.

Of course portability goes out the window. And your once lovely device is now just plain fugly. Nothing on pricing and availability yet, but I don’t see many of you buying this thing anyway.

Vapor4 iPhone 4 bumper

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2010

The iPhone 4 is prone to shatter easily, with that tiny plastic bezel. And also, touching its metal rim causes interference. The Vapor4 bumper is made of aluminum and just may solve the iPhone 4′s design problems. It looks great while doing it.

They are made of aluminum, and they have an interior liner that separates the metal from the antenna, insulating it. The manufacturer’s tests showed no interference whatsoever across all models of iPhone.

DIY iPhone 4 case made from a $1 bracelet

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2010

It sucks laying out more money for iPhone accessories. When is enough enough? All of that money adds up. So how do you make a super cheap case and save some dough? Well, Oliver Nelson has used a rubber wristband to act as a bumper on his phone.

They are apparently an almost perfect fit when stretched around the 4′s antennae. A 1.125-inch long by 0.125-inch wide incision (into the unstretched band) is necessary to keep the 30-pin port and speakers open, but otherwise it’s pretty easy and dirt cheap too.

Coveroo offers iPhone 4 cases you can customize

Posted in Mobile Accessories by Shane McGlaun on June 25th, 2010

One of the things about the iPhone is that with its popularity just about everyone has one. It’s hard to be unique when everyone uses the same gear. Coveroo has announced a couple new cases for the iPhone 4.

Among the new cases are ones that are printed with the typical stuff we see like movie characters, team logos, and other designs. The cool case is one that the company will put your own picture or design on.

TILT iPad case

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2010

You need a case to protect that shiny new iPad of yours. And Hard Graft has a new TILT iPad case. The TILT case is made from 100% wool felt and provides a lightweight yet flexible case that can be turned back on its self to create a stand for tilting your iPad.

It shouldn’t add much weight to your iPad at all. Stretchy bands hold your iPad in place with two small ones over each corner and a larger band keeping the main flap in place during transport. Hopefully it is good at keeping your device secure that way.

KlearKase Kindle waterproof case

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2010

Two Kindle cases in two days. Maybe reading books isn’t dead after all. The KlearKase press release even goes so far as bad mouthing yesterday’s M-Edge Guardian for being twice as expensive and thrice as heavy. I guess the Kindle waterproof case wars have begun.

This 6-ounce polycarbonate case will cost you just $39.99 and Amazon will have them available by the end of the month. This one does look cooler than the M-Edge. What do you think?

Kindle gets its first waterproof case

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on June 10th, 2010

Now you can hang out in the pool without worrying about killing your Kindle. M-Edge’s Guardian case will protect your Kindle from water. It’s expensive at $80, but you are protecting a $260 ereader, so it’s worth it.

Wired has reviewed it and they seem to think it’s worth the money, but there are some issues. For one, there’s no access to the power button, and it’s also pretty heavy at 484grams. If those things are okay with you, it comes in black, red and blue.

I Make My Case, available for the iPhone 4

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2010

That’s right, we have more cases for the iPhone 4. Case-Mate is next in line to launch their iPhone 4 Cases. These are definitely eye-popping cases. They make cases for the iPhone 3Gs and BlackBerry and now they will be available for the iPhone 4 with the iPhone 4 Artist Series Original Cases.

You can design your own custom iPhone 4 case with art from several world-renowned artists. The cases will be available soon to customize any way you want for $39.99.

iPhone 4 Grove Made Bamboo Case

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2010

The design on the new iPhone 4 is beautiful, but maybe you want something more natural looking. If so then check out these new bamboo cases for the iPhone 4 from Grove Made. This case is available in a plain version, or in some versions with laser engraving.

They won’t cost you an arm and a leg either as they can be had for just $49 for the plain version and $69 for the engraved version.

Phoneballs iPhone case

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2010

Dropped calls? This iPhone case has dropped balls. Normally a case will protect your phone, but I’m not so sure this one will. After all, haven’t countless videos shown us that balls are like magnets when it comes to being kicked and punched in them?

Seems like it would draw some sort of vicious ball attack. They come in blue and peach and will cost you $15. Not sure why you would want that end near your mouth while using your phone, but at least 10% of all proceeds go to testicular cancer research.
