When I bought the iPhone I was very particular about the case. It had to be protective, stylish and still be able to slide easily out of my pocket. Knowing I was getting the iPad I was very concerned about what type of case to get. After doing some research and a bit of in store browsing the iPad Case proved far superior.
Unlike the iPhone you want to protect more than the the back cover, but similar to a laptop you are less likely to accidentally drop it or fumble it out of the car.
The iPad Case is great for the following reasons:
The material, it has the ability to stick to surfaces at various angles. Without the cover you have to constantly adjust the as the iPad moves around
Design, the flap doubles as a dual purpose stand. See photos, this helps when resting it on a table or desktop to type. Or you can stand it up on your coffee table and use it as a picture frame or movie player.
If you are going to get a case for the iPad I recommend this one. It's worth the $39.00 price tag.
With a soft microfiber interior and reinforced panels to provide structure, the iPad Case is the perfect way to carry around your iPad. And it does double duty. It folds in just the right places to act as a stand that holds iPad at an ideal angle for watching videos and slideshows or for typing on the onscreen keyboard.
Here are the features of the iPad Case:
Soft microfiber interior
Reinforced panels for structure
Lightweight enough to carry anywhere
Folds horizontally or vertically to hold iPad at an angle for viewing video or typing on the onscreen keyboard
Holes for headphone jack, dock connector port, and on/off and volume buttons
