Available in three colors — red, dark blue, and yellow — Incipio’s gamer-friendly case for iPad is alternately known as 1337 or Leet ($35). Like the predecessor versions for iPhone and iPod touch, Leet adds thick silicone rubber grips to the sides of the iPad, here in all four corners with gaps in the centers of each side; Incipio uses the same honeycomb internal technique as its rubber Dermashot case in order to make Leet lighter than cases of comparable thickness. Protection for buttons is included, while the screen lock switch, headphone port, microphone, speakers, and Dock Connector are all exposed. Screen film and a cleaning cloth will be included, as well.
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.
1337 or Leet is supposed to be an iPad gaming case, but is really just Dermashot with L-shaped thicker corners and different colors—the case is otherwise identical in benefits and issues. The grips are extremely thick and add weight to the case, but do work to make the iPad easier to hold; like Dermashot, you give up the included video stand found with Incase’s options.
