STM has provided iLounge with a look at its cases for the next-generation iPad. Much like the cases from Ozaki seen earlier today, STM’s cases look quite similar to those made for the iPad 2, with similar openings for ports, controls, and cameras. The Skinny 3 is a hard shell case featuring soft lining, a built-in soft front cover that serves as both a viewing and typing stand and also features integrated magnets to activate the expected auto sleep/wake feature, and a loop closure. It is expected to sell for $40. The Grip is a folio-style case that also features an integrated, magnet-laden front cover and a hard shell back; the Grip incorporates a kickstand for viewing and typing. It is expected to sell for $45.
