Cases and Stands


Do you cover your portable devices, from smartphones to tablets to portable hard drives? These devices are getting tougher, with more scratch-resistant (and fingerprint-resistant) screens. And Apple has the cool Smart Cover for the iPad that snaps on magnetically to protect the screen.

But there's still a good use for a protective cases, from soft rubberized covers to provide some help when knocking around in a pocket or bag (and to provide a more secure grip), to hard shells for added security with rougher use.


Speck CandyShell / PixelSkin Cases

There are zillions of cases out there, but Speck has a particularly nice variety of smart and playful designs.

The Speck PixelSkin is a soft protective silicon case with a pixilated raised grid design for a good grip (see earlier post). It's joined by the more rigid PixelSkin HD with a higher contrast texture.

The PixelSkin for the iPhone 4 / 4s is $24.95, the PixelSkin HD $29.95 for the iPhone 4 / 4s and the PixelSkin HD Wrap for the iPad 2 is $49.95.

The Speck CandyShell is a hard case with extra protection from rubberized corners and inner rubbery lining (see earlier post).

The CandyShell Wrap for iPad 2 ($54.95) provided hard-shell protection, with a removable cover. The case is co-molded with the hard polycarbonate plastic shell and soft rubber insides. It protects the back and sides, including rubberized covers over the buttons. And it has a flip-out panel on the bottom for use with dock or keyboard. The front cover stays closed with micro-suction, and folds to serve as a multi-position viewing and typing stand -- or you can remove the cover by sliding it out for intensive use.
