Like its iPhone 4 case lineup, Cygnett's series of me-too iPad cases aren't exactly awe-inspiring enough to merit a lot of discussion. The company's flip-style Glam ($40) and Lavish ($40) cases are a little different from the same-named iPhone 4 versions, opening from the side rather than the bottom; Glam uses the same shiny patent leather, while Lavish gives up the perforated lambskin leather for a similarly soft, unperforated faux leather and microsuede interior. Both have magnetic tap clasps to hold closed. Initially somewhat interesting was the sleeve-styled Agenda ($40), a lightly padded, neoprene-lined leather case with a distinctive concentric circle pattern embossed into the faux leather exterior -- the completely open side and lack of a tab closure were less impressive, however. Finally, there's SecondSkin ($25), Cygnett's silicone rubber case. Distinct from Simplism's earlier, similar version due to its larger rear bone-shaped grips, the case's front bezel coverage slips open when you're using the iPad inside. None of these cases includes screen protection.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
