    Since some of us are getting our iPads soon, what case will you get for your new baby? :)

    Personally, I like these:

    The Clutch by Happy Owl Studios - although they do not have a price yet, the concept is great! I love the red one :D

    The Cloak by Quirky - it is on pre-sale for $36 and they have to get a certain number of commitments before they go into production. I love the fact that it can stand on its own in both portrait and landscape.

    Re: iPad Cases

    Longlivebooks "BOOK" looks cool, it looks like an authentic book..

    The iMaxi - hehehe for the laaaaadies

    WaterGuard - in case you want to use the iPad under water

    Vers Wooden Case
    - if you want to use your iPad as a dektop photo frame, doubles as a chopping board

    Re: iPad Cases

    Thanks to this thread, surely this will be a trend. Not a fan of cases, but might cover the back area with clear film (via Gmasked, as usual).

    iPad Accessories & Add-Ons

    Besides Apple made ones, 3rd party products are coming out. Suggest iPad Accessories & Add-Ons here.

    Here's one:
    [​IMG]

    iBallz protect your new iPad and other tablet devices from spills, sticky surfaces and the inevitable drop (gasp!) without adding weight, blocking buttons & adapters or sacrificing style.

    iBallz is a “one size fits all” shock absorption harness that protects and enhances the appearance of template-style computing and “e-reader” devices such as Apple iPad, Amazon Kindle and Sony Reader and others.

    Unlike other products currently on the market that encase a device and rely on a thin layer of rubber or plastic for protection, iBallz does not conceal the device and utilizes balls at the four corners and elastic string along the sides to absorb the shock and reduce the potential damage resulting from dropping the device. This design also avoids obstructing the device buttons and adapters. Use iBallz with your standard care for aditional protection.

    iBallz elevates the device safely away from spills and avoids contact with sticky and unclean surfaces. The elevation also assists in performance and presentation situations where space is limited. For example, the device can now sit evenly on top of a turntable or hang from a airplane seat, adding Additional ventilation and stability . Does your iPad got iballz?

    http://iballz.info/

    now onto add-ons to add smartbro-usb, flash drives, projectors, gps navigation, etc functionality :)

    The BookArc looks nice buy JaDu Industries' Skadoosh iPad Stand is more portable and able to accomodate other slate computer or gadgets. The name sounds awkward.. I'm not against gay but it sure sounds like a gay linggo.. Taaarush!

    I'm not sure if twelvesouth's iPad BookArc will tilt the way the skadoosh does but if angle is not a problem, I bet you'll love Macally's ViewStand

    It makes the iPad looks like a miniature iMac..

    Re: iPad Accessories & Add-Ons

    I tried the Apple iPad Case but I found it lacking in protection. I decided to get the InCase Convertible Book Jacket instead. It offers more protection and it opens to convert into a stand with multiple viewing positions. It also has a secure elastic closure.

    Mod Announcement:

    I have merged the threads for iPad Cases and iPad Accessories/Add-ons into one.

    From now on, let's consolidate talks about iPad cases, accessories, add-ons, etc. into this single thread.

    Furthermore, I'd like to request every MUGger to keep the Forum, especially the iPad section these days, clean and organized. I know we're all excited about the iPad, its apps, its books, its cases and accessories but as a matter of courtesy and responsibility, let's:
    - refrain from cross-posting
    - think twice before opening a new thread. Think: Can I simply add my post to an existing thread? After all, it will still pop up on top of the thread listings, so it won't go unnoticed.

    Thank you.

    7 Must Have iPad Accessories
    By Peter Ha on April 5, 2010

    Let the flood of iPad accessories begin! In the little research I've done for this list, I noticed that the majority of accessories weren't built specifically for the iPad. The majority are ones for netbooks. It's a scam, people! There really aren't very many must-haves for the oversized iPhone. However, I found the following five doohickeys to be useful or clever.
    Update: We'll be adding to this list as we go.

    [​IMG]

    1. Apple iPad Case $39
    Aside from the logo on the front cover, Apple's iPad case is without a doubt the best case available right now. They're not an accessories manufacturer, so whatever accessory they do end up producing is generally very well designed with high quality materials. The iPad case is no different. It's tough in all the right places and its versatility knows no bounds. I do worry that the slit in the back of the case that the front cover slides into could eventually get weak, but that's neither here nor there.

    [​IMG]

    2. Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit $29
    Some might say the iPad is a glorified digital picture frame and they wouldn't be too far off with such a comment, which is why Apple has a camera connection kit coming out later this month. You can transfer JPEG and RAW images from your camera directly to your iPad without ever having to sync with your PC or Mac. The kit actually includes two connectors: USB and SD. I'm pretty excited about this one.

    [​IMG]

    3. Cocoon Gramercy Messenger Sling $29.99
    Cocoon makes an interesting variety of bags and cases for countless gadgets, but the “GRID-IT” organization system found in all of their bags puts them a nose in front of everyone else. My gadget bag is a complete mess and I could definitely use a GRID-IT panel to keep all my cords and other doodads organized. The Gramercy is an economical sling bag that easily accommodates your iPad and slew of accessories. I don't know about that clear media pocket they have going on in the front, but everything else seems up to snuff.

    [​IMG]

    4. iLuv Durable Ultra Thin Clear Case $29.99
    My ongoing love affair with clear cases is sickening and actually started back in the mid-90s when the only thing I carried around was a pager. And that's exactly why iLuv's clear case makes this list. It comes with a stand and lets you be that guy/gal at the coffee shop.

    [​IMG]

    5. Incase Travel Kit Plus $59.95
    Think of Incase's Travel Kit Plus as a hybrid of Apple's iPad case with an integrated Cocoon GRID-IT organization system. Except you can probably throw in the whole kitchen sink, too. There's enough room for cables, a stand, wireless keyboard and whatever else you want to tote around.



    6. Apple Wireless Keyboard $69
    A lot of folks prefer having a physical keyboard and Apple happens to make a dock/keyboard combo and a wireless keyboard that's compatible with the iPad. But the freedom of having the wireless keyboard over the dock system is far more appealing for this nerd.


    7. Belkin Speaker and Headphone Splitter $10
    Rather than huddling around your iPhone to watch movies on the plane or train, you can watch them on your iPad! Belkin's headphone splitter makes sense when traveling with a significant other, friend, brother, child, dog, etc.

    The big selling point for the ColcaSac line of iPad cases is that they are environmentally friendly. The fleece-lined covers are perfect for the iPad owner who wants to be a friend to the planet.
