Based upon its earlier, same-named case for the iPhone 3G + 3GS, SwitchEasy's new Reptile for iPad ($40) is a faux crocodile skin design with some interesting features. Available in five different colors, Reptile mixes a semi-soft plastic shell with a harder plastic front bezel frame, collectively providing top and side button coverage with holes for the Lock Switch, headphone port, Dock Connector port, microphone, and speakers. The front frame snaps into place on the side and back case to avoid accidental separation during use. Each Reptile includes two video stands, two headphone port covers, and two Dock Connector port covers, as well as screen film, an applicator card, and a cleaning cloth.


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.
