Kensington KeyFolio iPad keyboard case offers protection & rubber buttons

Kensington has outed its latest iPad accessories, and oddly enough the company's KeyFolio Bluetooth Keyboard and Case looks decidedly similar to the GearZap iPad KeyCase we've just reviewed.  Like the KeyCase, the Kensington KeyFolio has rubberized keys and a faux-leather case, and promises up to 90 hours of solid use from a single charge.

GearZap iPad KeyCase Review

GearZap iPad KeyCase Review

Apple's on-screen keyboards and auto correction technology isn't half bad in iOS, but it's still fair to say that consuming text on the iPad is an easier endeavour than entering it. The Cupertino company's own iPad Keyboard Dock is one way to address the issue, though not especially portable; the GearZap iPad KeyCase - sold by AIDACASE in the US - attempts to remedy that, being a combination Bluetooth keyboard and folio case. Have our typing prayers been answered? Check out the full review after the cut.

Apple Stopping Free iPhone 4 Case Program on September 30th

Apple Stopping Free iPhone 4 Case Program on September 30th

When "antennagate" turned into a whole "thing," Apple's Steve Jobs went out on stage and talked about the situation. He told everyone watching, which eventually made it to everyone else, that the iPhone 4's antenna issues weren't just plaguing the iPhone 4, but that it was a problem with the whole smart phone industry. But, while Jobs can't fix the entire industry, he did offer up a free case program, as well as extending the normal 14-day return policy to 30-days. But, it's September 10th today, and the program is coming to an end in 20 days.

iNewt case slots iPhone 4 into Newton MessagePad

iNewt case slots iPhone 4 into Newton MessagePad

Ah, the Apple Newton - spiritual predecessor to the iPhone and a PDA cruelly axed before its time.  It seems a surprise that we've had to wait so long to see an iPhone Newton case, then, but happily Charles Mangin is taking on the challenge; his iNewt project will take an expired Newton MessagePad 2000 and trim it down to perfectly wrap around an iPhone 4.

So far it seems he's managed to hack apart one old Newton and craft a custom bay for the Apple smartphone, doing some re-logoing along the way.  A simple hatch door keeps the iPhone 4 in place, and we're guessing there'll be some sort of pass-through cable arrangement so as to charge and sync the handset without necessarily needing to remove it from the case.

iPhone 4 dual-SIM case makes network hopping easy

The iPhone 4 can do plenty, even play nicely on other GSM networks when you've unlocked it with ultrasn0w, but up until now you couldn't put two SIM cards inside it.  USBfever's new iPhone 4 Dual SIM Adapter Case doesn't quite change that - the two SIMs in question aren't exactly within the iPhone - but it does allow you to easily flip between cards without reaching for the Liquidmetal tool.
