Planned for immediate availability, Simplism's Silicone Case Set for iPad ($30) is the latest rubber case offering for Apple's tablet computer. Unlike the other rubber cases we've seen so far, this one has large circular bumps in the corners to keep the iPad steady on a flat surface; it also comes with (very thin) glossy screen film, a cloth, and an applicator card. Five different colors 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.

A lower price, included screen protection, and a dimpled, anti-rock back are the major differentiators of this case relative to some of its rivals; different colors may also float your boat. The thin rubber used here is sufficient to protect the iPad, though it feels a hint beneath Incipio’s in floppiness, and constantly feels a little dusty. Apple’s cables work, but the iPad Camera Connection Kit doesn’t, so bigger accessories will be an issue going forward.


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.
