Saw this review on Chip Chick and immediately ordered one from Amazon for $52.. It’s just the thing I’ll need for my second cross-country motorcycle trip this year (hopefully). Looks extrememly useful in any event. One nice thing she points out is that it will hold a Bluetooth keyboard and prop the iPad up in a landscape position. It is getting to the point that I am reluctant to leave the house without my iPad! 4G makes it useful anywhere. Full details in the review.
If James Bond had an iPad, there’s a good chance he’d be protecting it with Pelican’s i1075 HardBack Case. While it’s not exactly bulletproof, it is dustproof, waterproof, and crushproof. Plus it doesn’t just keep your iPad 1, 2, or 3 safe, but all the accessories that go along with iPad.
The Pelican i1075 HardBack Case is essentially a little briefcase. It’s constructed out of high strength ABS plastic, and is actually pretty light for what it is. The case has just one easy-open latch. There’s a built-in automatic purge valve that balances the air pressure inside the case while keeping dust and water outside of the case.
The inside of the case is lined in a very soft shock absorbing molded foam layer with separators for iPad’s charger, keyboard, and other accessories. iPad sits comfortably on a place holder on top of the accessories. There’s even an integrated easel that props up iPad in a portrait or landscape position. With iPad propped and Apple’s bluetooth keyboard fitted in the case, the i1075 offers a very usable laptop-like experience.”
