I received a review sample from Snugg
For most people, an iPad is a big investment. It's a piece of electronic equipment that gets a lot of hands-on use, especially when it's in a household with kids! Grubby little fingers are always touching the screen, and clumsy little hands are always carrying it places, scratching, banging, and heaven forbid, dropping! And kids aren't the only culprits; grownups can be just as guilty.
So it makes sense to protect your iPad with a good quality cover -- and when it comes to covers, they don't get any better than the ones made by Snugg. Snugg cases are the biggest seller in the USA and Amazon best sellers in the USA, UK, Germany, France and Japan. They supply custom branded cases to Cadillac, GMC and the CIA as well as celebrities and other big companies. They sent me their iPad 2 Case Cover and Flip Stand to review, and I think it's the perfect example of good quality at a great price.
The Pea's iPad case has become quite grubby, so I requested a review sample in a bright, girlish pink (it comes in 10 colors). Since it's leather, it will be much easier to clean than a cloth or suede cover, but it looks so much more elegant than a plastic cover.
The iPad slides easily into its protective case and is held very securely with a velcro tab. The cover flips over to protect the iPad's screen and locks in place magnetically (I love that feature!).
There are gaps in the leather in all the right places for the power switch, volume switch, home button, front camera and rear camera. I really like the camera holes because it means you don't have to take the case off in order to take a photo!
The case features a pen holder loop at the top, which is really convenient -- but note that only a very slim pen or pencil will be able to fit, which is not so convenient.
The case also acts as a reading pedestal/stand, with two different viewing angles.
To hold the stand in place, you slip the lid into a cut-out flap on the back of the case. The flap doesn't seem to be reinforced, so I'm wondering whether the lid will be able to stay in place or slip out (which will cause the stand to collapse) once the leather softens. For now, at least, it works great.
The Snugg iPad 2 Case Cover and Flip Stand sells for $49.99, but right now it's on sale for $34.99 at the Snugg online store, and $29.99 on Amazon! What a steal!
