Firstly, Hi there iPadinCanada! Its great to be over here finally blogging about the ‘magical’ iPad – I’ll be bringing you all the news & reviews for iPad products and accessories, so stay tuned for some great contests and giveaways in the coming weeks.
Today I wanted to tell you about the new iSkin cases for the iPad. They just released these last week, and after having a look at them I just knew I had to give my opinion and ask for yours – check it out:
Now, I usually love iSkin products. Not only are they high-quality, but come on – it’s a Canadian Company. Gotta support our local boys, right. But when it comes to these cases, I just don’t know what to make of them.
Well, the Duo’s not so bad. Just your basic silicone case, and the colours really are vibrant. But it leaves the *entire* front of the iPad completely unprotected (although we all have Zagg Shields, right?). At $49.99 USD, and knowing the quality of iSkins products, that’s a pretty safe bet if you like soft cases.
As for the other, I honestly spent about 15 minutes on the iSkin site before I realized that the Vu was not another silicone case – it’s a hybrid Case. The clear part is hard plastic while the coloured part is soft.
It does offer more protection, and a soft grippy side would probably go well with the hard-back case. At first I was really weirded out by the design – however, after reading the site they explain that the line across the back functions as a separator for the docking hatch. As in, a portion of the case comes off so you can dock or sync your iPad.
OK, to be fair, I’m starting to come around on it. At $64.99 USD it’s more of an investment. What do you guys think?
