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.

re: 10 iPad Cases Fit For Summer
Great set of case reviews. I've tried a couple already. One that I have come to like a lot when traveling in the summer is the iLoc Case. It's inexpensive and disposable but re-usable. I use it for my iPad around sunset surfing the web. Don't have to worry about getting sand in my iPad and saved me a couple times during high tide - you know those times when all of your stuff gets blanketed with water when you're looking for shells. I pick them up at http:\\www.ilocstore.com for just a couple dollars.

Pelican HardBack? It has a keyboard!!! Real die hard Apple fanbois don't converge a frdige with a toaster! Apple said that keyboards for a tablet are bad bad bad, so don't do it - not even when it turns your tablet into something useful.
