Incase rolls out line of accessories for iPad

Incase has announced its lineup of new accessories for the iPad. The Grip Protective Cover is a silicone rubber case that offers two molded rails on the back for added comfort when holding the iPad in landscape orientation, direct access to all buttons and ports, and an included stand. It is available in two colors and sells for $40. The Protective Cover is also a silicone rubber skin, offering direct access to all ports and controls and an included stand. It comes in four colors and also sells for $40. Like the company’s prior sleeves for Apple’s laptop computers, the Neoprene Sleeve Plus is a form-fitting neoprene case offering a protective interior border, perforated spine, faux fur interior lining, and a zippered closure. It sells for $40, as does the Neoprene Slip Sleeve Plus, a thinner form-fitting neoprene case with a slip opening and cushioned faux fur interior.

The Convertible Book Jacket appears to have been inspired by the covers of Moleskine notebooks, and offers direct access to all ports and controls, an elastic band closure, and the ability to serve as a stand with multiple viewing positions. It comes in black only and sells for $60, as does the Travel Kit Plus, a nylon case featuring a plush faux fur-lined dedicated iPad compartment, cable management, and padded Velcro interior pockets for the included stand, USB drives, earbuds, and the Apple wireless keyboard. Finally, the company has updated its single USB port Combo Charger and Car Charger to offer iPad compatibility; they sell for $40 and $25, respectively.

I had been looking forward to Incase’s lineup, but these are seriously disappointing.  The Neoprene Slip Sleeve Plus would have been good had the iPad slot been on top for super-easy access.  But pulling it out of the top flap (as with the MacBook Air case) is too much of a process for this device.  Same thing with the zipper case.  With the iPad, unlike a laptop, you need to be able to simply pull it out and start using it.  So far, most manufacturers haven’t seemed to grasp that part of the concept.  Incase, please consider something like your perforated snap case.  In addition, please think about redesigning the Neoprene Slip Sleeve Plus for much easier top access.
