To say that RibCage ($35) is a break from SwitchEasy's past collection of iPod, iPhone, and iPod cases would be only half-correct: the bony styling of this new iPad case is somewhat familiar from the company's CapsuleRebel M, but the rest -- the simple, sleeve-style design, the use of faux leather, and the absence of playthrough functionality -- are all surprises given SwitchEasy's past releases. Inside the case is a hard plastic frame to protect the iPad's screen, with a soft gray or black lining to match the white or black exterior. The package also includes twin video stands, a cleaning cloth, screen protector, and applicator card. Odd? Yes, but perhaps dinosaur junkies will like it.


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.
