Protective cases, of various shapes, sizes, and gimmicks, are a dime a dozen in the mobile device world but there are a few that rise above the others in design, features, and ingenuity. One such recent case comes from ZeroChroma who has just unveiled its new Folio-Slide case for the iPad Mini.
Moshi has introduced a couple new covers for the newly unveiled iPad Air, all of which are slated to launch sometime this fall and follow shortly after Belkin introduced its own offerings for the Apple slate.

Now that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c have landed in the hands of consumers in major markets around the globe, all eyes shift towards Apple's next batch of devices, particular the much-awaited next iteration of the company's tablet line, the iPad 5. Various leaks and rumors have already circulated around the Internet and now we're being treated to a video comparing the supposed back cover of the iPad 5 with those of the current generation iPad 4 and iPad Mini.
Well that was fast - just a few hours after the iPad Mini got its big reveal during Apple's press event, Cygnett has some new cases for the tiny tablet. There are six different cases in all, each with a number of color variants, and each one comes with a design all its own. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a stylish or rugged case for your iPad Mini - Cygnett has you covered.
Talk about getting a jump on the market. Gumdrop Cases, maker of all sorts of cases for various tablets and phones, has unveiled the first iPad mini case despite the fact that Apple has not yet announced the product.

Apple is expected to announce the iPad mini tomorrow.
This week we've got our hands on one of the newest series of iPad covers from the extended iPhone and iPad case series made by Griffin in collaboration with Threadless! This lovely Folio is a now-classic design by Griffin working with the artwork of Jeremy Todd, with the design on the front and back being called "City Canals." This design was made by Jeremy Todd for Threadless (and Griffin) in Chicago, and as a bit of a bonus you've got the option of downloading a perfectly sized wallpaper for your iPad to match - it's the total package!

There's a brand new high-quality keyboard case in town, and it's got the name Brookstone on it. You know in your heart of hearts that this means it's mean to be high quality, and indeed you will find that this is true once you have a peek at this review. There's only a few components you need to nail down for a successful Bluetooth keyboard case for the iPad, each of them pretty much mastered here by Brookstone in their "Pro" model - but how does it measure up against the competition?
When it comes to Apple, there's only one thing you can guess on releases: you never ever quite know what you're going to get or what it'll be called - thats why when the name iPad 2S popped up on the airwaves this afternoon, the wheels in our minds started spinning furiously. This is not the first time we've seen the "S" naming scheme appear on an Apple product, nor will it be the last time, but here it certainly does appear to be the first iPad to attain the partial step between full refreshes in models. It's a Chinese case maker by the name of Chinee that appears to have spilled the beans here, showing off a case that looks not unlike one that would fit fine on an iPad 2, but with an additional letter that's oh-so-telling in the title.
Pong Research has released an iPad case that it claims to boost your iPad's 3G signal and reduce your exposure to the radiation emitted by your iPad's 3G antenna.

He also gives an interesting explanation for those of you curious how it works.
