I purchased the new iPad the day it was announced and have had it for a couple of weeks now. In that time I have been searching for a case and have had several people ask what case I might recommend. To save some time I am writing this post to be able to refer my educational colleagues and friends for more info. Reviewing cases is easier said than done without some hands on experience, and I have not witnessed many cases as of yet. Nevertheless, I have viewed some particular cases online and here are those that catch my eye (One I have since purchased…). Remember, these are probably more to my taste; so, if you have other cases that appeal to you please share in the comments:
Saddleback Leather Company: Growing up on a ranch in western Wyoming has led me to the desire to have one of these cases!
Targus Versavu: I purchased this one as I could get my hands on it and needed something to get by for now. I also purchased their stylus. I like the case, but I am finding the “stand” feature, first position near the edge often allows the iPad to slip out and drop down flat. Just a warning to those that may be considering this particular make and model.
Pad and Quill Contega: This appears to be a very nice case that offers a combination of wood and leather. There are other models available.
Portenzo Tuju: Another handmade, wood, and leather case.
iSkin Aura 2: Boasts compatibility with the new iPad.
Otterbox Defender: This is a very rugged case. We have used these in our district, and they are great if you want extra protection.
