Otterbox cases have a well-deserved reputation for ruggedness, and the Defender series for the new iPad and iPad 2 is no exception. Designed for clumsy people who might drop their iPads on airport tarmacs, or for foolish adults who let juice-guzzling toddlers play with expensive electronics, the Defender has an inner polycarbonate shell that snaps around the slate. It covers the iPad's ports to block dust and lint; however, all buttons, connectors, and cameras are fully functional with the case on. The screen protector shield doubles as an upright stand for portable and landscape viewing, and reclines to a more shallow angle for typing. Priced at $90, the Defender is definitely a high-end protector.
