10 iPad Cases Fit For Summer

Many iPad cases claim to be water resistant, but "resistant" isn't very reassuring if you're headed for the beach or pool. The Lifedge case floats, and is waterproof below three feet of water for 30 minutes, according to the company. It also can withstand 1-meter drops onto concrete without cracking. The front of the case has a transparent, anti-glare coating; the back is a durable, polycarbonate shell. The cameras on the iPad 2 and the new iPad are fully functional when encased in Lifedge. This recently announced UK import wasn't shipping when we last checked. The price is £99.00 (roughly $160 U.S.).

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.

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.
