Gripcase Makes It Safer For Kids To Use iPads

We know what you're thinking, what in the world is that?! It's a Gripcase case designed to protect the iPad 2, 3 and 4 with an over-protective case within a case concept that is not only extremely effective in the sense of offering 360 degree drop-protection, but also provides users with additional grip thru a 4-sided handle periphery like no other case we've seen before. Dropping your iPad in this should never sink your heart. And there's even an iPad mini version too.

Yes it isn't pretty or anywhere near being minimalist, but it definitely does look to be effective at what it was meant for which is to provide maximum handling and protection for virtually any application (except for bad weather and something called water) no matter the person's age that is grabbing on. The Gripcase's exterior grip handle, or railing actually extends above the front of the device and acts like an additional raised bezel in order to protect the iPad's most crucial aspect, the touchscreen, in a worst case scenario.

The Gripcase's lightweight, and durable EVA foam body can absorb impacts and shock very well, and its unique bumper design helps in deflecting energy upon impact by bending as a crumple zone. Gripcase is obviously targeting parents with kids and special needs applications with its heavy-duty iPad cases which the company claims are kid-friendly, but I think it's safe to say that they're also kid-proof too. The back of the Gripcase is cut to reveal parts of the iPad's rear aluminum end, which is pretty cool looking yet under the cover of tough protection. A Gripcase for a full sized iPad will run you $40, while an iPad mini version costs a bit less at $35. Both come in multiple colors and are available now.

The Tank iPad Case Keeps Your Tablet Protected And Stylish

Inno Pocket, an Asian based mobile accessory company, is looking to upgrade the Smart Cover with their own version called the Tank. It is an aluminum constructed, anti-shock case that is designed to protect your iPad in its entirety. The case is made with two aluminum shells using an ABS clasp that allows you to rotate the top shell in a 360 degree motion. The bottom shell is designed to fit snuggly with your iPad and has an ultra-thin polymeric lining to keep it from scratching the metal surface. Similar to the Smartcover, the Tank can form into four different positions allowing for easy reading, writing, watching, and video calling. The Tank is available now for $99.99.

Griffin Announces New iPad 3rd Gen Cases, Available Now

Griffin has announced its not so new lineup cases for the new ipad 3rd gen including the ever so tough Survivor case. At $80, the Survivor is Griffin’s most protective iPad case yet, designed to meet and even exceed US military standards. The Survivor features a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame, clad in rugged, shock-absorbing silicone and comes with a clip-on stand for typing and viewing pleasure. This combination of materials protects against dirt, sand, rain, shock, vibration, and a host of other environmental factors thanks to built-in port covers and a built-in screen protector. The case is available in Pink and Black right now along with a few of Griffin's other new iPad case offerings like the InteliCase at $60. 

The IntelliCase is a folio style case that features a hard polycarbonate back shell with a protective Smart Cover-like flexible front cover that folds up into a stand for multiple uses. It's available now in four colors for both the iPad 2 and the new iPad 3rd gen. Despite the fact that the new iPad is slightly thicker than the iPad 2, many case manufactures insist that their current cases made for the Pad 2 will fit just fine.

iPad 2 Smart Cover Case With The Original iPad Case Look

This looks like a promising alternative to those who are looking for a Smart Cover clone with the same look and feel as Apple's original iPad Case we all loved and hated at the same time. This Smart Cover knockoff has all the same functions as the real deal like the magnetic sleep/wake feature and you can even roll the front cover into a landscape and typing stand. Did I mention this case also provides full back protection to the iPad 2? Could this Smart Cover knockoff for the iPad 2 really be a worthy case? It sure looks good and it's even available in various colors including black for $34.99. Hit up the source link for more images.
