Although pretty similar in appearance to its Crystal Cover Set already on the market, Simplism's Crystal Gaban Set for iPad 2 ($35) has some major functional differences. It's a crystal shell with good coverage around at the bottom and sides, offset by an overexposed top. What's unique are the loops at each of the four corners: these connect to the included strap and allow the iPad 2 to be carried like a purse, or used hands free. Simplism also includes two plastic rods that can fit through the holes and act as a stand, along with a polishing cloth, bubble remover, and a different portable plastic stand.


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.
