There are two products that I use a lot. My iPad Air and the Logitech Fabricskin Keyboard Folio. Logitech’s offering essentially turns my Apple tablet into a laptop when needed. With the recent release of Microsoft Office for iPad, I am in productivity heaven when on the go.
The problem with keyboard cases, is that they can be bulky. The Fabricskin is very svelte compared to other models, but still sometimes I would like a more sleek cover when relaxing in bed. Today, Logitech announces some new models of iPad cases, sans keyboard, and I am excited.
“Today, we are excited to introduce our new lineup of protective cases for the iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina display: Logitech Hinge, Logitech Big Bang and Logitech Turnaround. Each of these cases is designed to complement you and your iPad during work or play”, says Logitech.
The first case that is highlighted is called the “Hinge”. Not surprisingly, its big feature is a hinge — a hidden one at that. It allows you to protect the screen when not in use and angle it when consuming media. It offers a 50 degree range — impressive.
The next featured case is probably the most exciting. It is called the “Big Bang”. No, it is not related to the hit CBS comedy. It is an extremely durable case, which exceeds military protocols. It can even withstand an annoying bratty child. As you can see in the video below, this kid drops it, spills milk on it and more. Where are his parents?!
Lastly, Logitech is offering the “Turnaround”. This is a case that allows the iPad to be rotated and better used for Apple’s Facetime video-chat feature. However, the really nice thing about this case is how professional it looks. As more people embrace BYOD and take iPads into corporate settings, a beautifully-adult case such as the Turnaround is exactly what is needed. This would be appropriate for a boardroom meeting or regular home use.
So, there you have it. Logitech is covering all the bases with these 3 cases — sleek, rugged and professional. In other words, the company is offering consumers choice, which is the most important feature of all.
Which of these 3 cases do you like better? Tell me in the comments.
