Uniq Creation has been open about the fact that it focuses more on the fashion of its cases than rethinking the shell and lid elements it sources. Its new Cabrio ($TBD) and The LBD ($49), both of which support the iPad 2 and the third-generation iPad, are actually somewhat plain, however.
Cabrio uses the same “claw” design we’ve seen over and over again since the iPad 2’s launch, but it is covered in faux leather with three nice color options available. The LBD, on the other hand, riffs on the structure we saw most recently on iLuv’s Epciarp: the front cover is segmented into three columns that can fold into a stand, with a raised section of plastic on the back used to hold it in place.
Both cases offer full access to all the ports and buttons. We certainly wouldn’t mind seeing some of Uniq’s cooler designs gracing the front of either of these models.
