Perennial iDevice case maker Griffin has dropped several new products to brighten up the already sleek iPad design.
First up is the Cinema Seat ($40) a slightly bulky case you can use to mount the tablet in a car, using it as a back seat entertainment system.
The product is a bit of a mixed bag, the case is an oversized gray faux leather/fabric frame that attaches to the pipes of a headrest with foldable, adjustable Velcro. It looks a bit like the rich Corinthian leather of Chrysler fame.
The case is pretty functional as a traveling mount, but a bit bulky for regular use as an iPad case. We're not sure too many people will be slinging this around in their messenger bag.
The next is the Elan Form Graphite (left above, $50) and the Outfit for iPad (right, $35-$40) two very similar cases.
They both are hard plastic shells, not true full-fledged cases. Covering the iPad's back, top, bottom and sides, they leave nice gaps for ports and buttons, with there is no bezel or screen protection.
They both look identically from the front, they are open. Not a bad thing, we love the design of the iPad.
Elan's has a faux carbon fiber leather shell back, while the Outfit is translucent plastic with a matte soft touch finish.
The Outfit is curiously at two different prices: the two easter egg-ish colors shown here are $40 each, while translucent white and smoke black versions are $35.
The last is the new Reveal for iPad (above, $50) it has a completely transparent, and glossy rear panel with a rectangular loop of black plastic around the edge.
The button covers are elevated, which is nice but the Dock Connector port hole is closely tailored, which means some of your accessories may not be compatible.
