Are you excited about your new iPad 2? Aren’t you a bit worried that you might scratch it before you get a protective film?

Crazy On Digital iPad 2 Accessory Bundle

This 20 items accessory bundle from Crazy On Digital includes all essential iPad 2 accessories such as screen protectors, leather case, earphones with microphone, chargers and various cables and connectors. You can find it on Amazon. If you are new to the iPad and you have no idea about what accessories you need to buy, this is a very good package to start with. It covers both protection and functionality needs. The only item it lacks is a stand, but you can do your research and order that separately later on. The main point in purchasing such a package for […]


The Street Skin from Hard Candy Cases is one of the first cases adapted for iPad 2. As far as I’ve seen, it is also the first case to make use of magnets, apart from Apple’s Smart Cover. Like the previous version, the Street Skin for iPad 2 provides full access to all ports and controls. This includes both cameras, so you don’t have to worry whether or not you’ll need to remove the case to use FaceTime. The skin is made from form-fitting TPU rubber, which is less stretchy than silicone, and an excellent shock absorber. TPU rubber provides […]

iPad2 Smart Cover unfolding

UPDATE: You can get the Smart Cover from as low as $26 from Amazon. Thanks to Simon’s helpful comment below. The long-awaited iPad 2 is now available. Although the screen size is still 9.7”, the new iPad is slimmer and slightly smaller than its predecessor. Those of you who resisted the impulse of buying an iPad as Christmas present can have it now for the same price but with the new operating system from Apple, iOS4 and with lots of additional functions such as dual video cameras, gyroscope, HDMI video out and magnetic screen covers. The magnetic screen covers are […]

Squish Case - Awesome iPad Case

Did I hear you say Drop-Proof ???  Well it almost is, in the words of the designer, David Adams: “We modeled the Squish Skin after a Wii remote case. Your iPad still isn’t drop-proof, but it’s close” And the entire team here couldn’t agree more; after I personally put my Pad into this case it felt almost indestructable. Short of intentionally throwing my iPad on the floor to test if this were true, I am happy to say that with the Squish Skin on the iPad, it certainly feels like it would withstand a drop from table height. So on […]


In our opinion the Speck CandyShell is one of the best iPad cases in terms of protection against shocks, bumps or accidental drops. That’s because it’s constructed with two layers: a hard polycarbonate shell on the exterior, coupled with an interior soft rubber lining which provides excellent shock-absorbing properties. This soft rubbery lining extends as a raised bezel around the iPad screen, protecting it against contact with flat surfaces, and possible scratches, should you put your iPad face down. We thought this feature was nice, although we still think an iPad screen protector is essential for scratch protection. The lining […]


You don’t have to be a heavy iPad user to realize that the most exposed areas are the corners and the back. After using iPads for several months now, we came to the conclusion that at least a hard-shell case is a must have if you don’t want your iPad to get its back worn very quickly. The iFrogz Luxe Lean snap-on iPad case is a great choice, a hard shell case with a soft feel and with a really low profile, protective and fashionable. The case is very comfortable thanks to its nice velvety texture that offers an excellent […]


Speck Pixekskin is a soft iPad case made from a high-quality textured silicone. The “pixel” texture of this case is a clever way to improve protection without adding a lot of bulk. Yet, one needs to keep in mind that it’s not exactly “invisible”. It also adds a “cool” factor which makes this case more appealing than plain silicone ones. The high-quality material snugly embraces the iPad while offering a firm grip to the user. Our team found it really nice and comfortable to hold the iPad while inside the Pixelskin case. One of our fears was that it would […]

Macally Bookstand Protection iPad Case

Did you know that an iPad owner spends an average of 20% more than the base iPad price on accessories? I don’t remember where I read that, but thinking of what I bought so far, the statistic seems close to reality. The fact is that once you spend so much on a gadget like the iPad, you then want to take very good care of it, so it’s understandable to think one would buy at least a case and a screen protector. Then it comes the ease of use. It’s great the iPad is so thin, but try to type […]
