Don't-Miss Tablet case Stories
Shells and skins cover the back and sides of your iPad, but not the screen, offering moderate protection while letting you use the iPad in its case. This week's iPad-case reviews cover three silicone skins: Hard Candy's Squish Skin, iSkin's Duo, and Speck's PixelSkin.
Can an iPad shell be cool? This one can.
Hard Candy Case's Squish Skin provides extra protection, but it's also awfully bulky.
The PixelSkin for iPad is a rubbery skin with good fit and finish, but it's a bit slippery in the hand.
Folio-style cases offer all-over protection for your iPad, but flip open for easy access. We've got reviews of nine new iPad folios this week: Acme Made's Slick Case, Case-Mate's Venture, Cyber Acoustics' IC-1000BK, Dexim's Elegant Collection for iPad, MacAlly's BookStand, Marware's Eco-Vue, Quirky's Cloak, Sena's ZipBook, and Twelve South's BookBook.
Zippered case provides in-use screen protection at the cost of much usability.
