iPad Case Review Extravaganza

Okay, so there’s no elaborate costume, pomp, splendour, music or anything one would typically associate with an extravaganza, but what we will have at Gadgetoid over the coming months is an absolute plethora of iPad cases and subsequent iPad case reviews.

In fact, in a slightly futile celebration of our finally announced, but ridiculously late UK launch date of the 28th May, I have taken it upon myself to get my grubby paws upon every iPad case I can possibly obtain and give them all a thorough photographing and reviewing for your viewing pleasure.

I’ve already given a quick look at some iPad cases from Proporta, namely the Mizu Shell and the Maya II, one of my favourite styles. However, Proporta are following up their bread and butter cases with the stunning looking Recycled Leather iPad Case which I’ll surely be taking a look at soon.

When is a WiFi-only iPad not a WiFi-only iPad?:

Today, offerings from both Vaja and Piel Frama arrived, I’ve included a couple of photos below, but you’ll have to wait for the full reviews to get my impression. Suffice to say, from first looks they’re stunning. For the connoisseurs amongst you, there are plenty more high-end cases to come from the likes of Sena, Noreve, Knomo and Beyza, that’s a lot of leather!

Edit: You can now read a full review of the Vaja ivolution Top SP leather iPad case, and also the Piel Frama Leather iPad Flip Case.
