Just unveiled by Incipio is Tek-nical ($35), a sleeve-style case for the iPad with briefcase-style handles and twin charger/accessory pockets on the front and back. Tek-nical uses ballistic nylon for its handles, pockets, and sides, neoprene for the rest of the exterior, and a lightly padded vinyl/memory foam interior. Black and olive green versions are available.

On May 13, 2010, iLounge published The Complete Guide to iPad Cases and Protection, a multi-page comparison of over 70 different iPad cases and film protectors, sorted by genre. The following details were added to this piece by that comparison article; please click on the link above for additional comparative discussion of similar protective options.

It’s just—just—large enough to hold the iPad, and could use a little extra space for its zippers, but Tek-Nical is a nice little briefcase with the ability to passively hold accessories in its pockets. We can’t see the form factor becoming hugely popular, but this isn’t bad.


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.
