With the launch of the Apple iPad in Singapore today, I’m pretty sure many out there will be looking for that all important accessory, a case or a cover to protect your newly purchased prize. Having had some alone time with it last night (a friend’s, not mine), it is truly an awesome piece of engineering (yes I’m wavering now) that deserves its very own protective case.
For those who can (and want) to get something ‘designer’, we’ve got croc and leather cases from Tod’s (due out in November 2010) that will doubles up as a stand, Monogram Canvas and Damier Graphite cases from Louis Vuitton (SGD570 each), and a neoprene case from Gucci that will retail for SGD320.
For those who whose pockets aren’t as deep (or simply refuse to spend so much on a case), here are my favourites from Incase. First up, the Incase Neoprene Slip Sleeve Plus which actually comes with an additional stand. Retailing for USD39.95, the neoprene case which comes in 2 colours (Grey or Black) ensures your iPad is snug and safe at all times.
Then there’s the Incase Convertible Book Jacket (USD59.95) which kinda resembles a Moleskin journal. Flip it open, slot it in and it will even double up as a stand for your iPad. And yes, Incase does ship internationally.
Last but not least, here’s the Vers iPad Shellcase that comes in different types of wood including cherry, walnut and bamboo. Retailing for USD79.95 each, it’s definitely a case with a difference.
