View Full Version : [iPad] Case for the iPad 2

Jan 22, 2013, 08:59 PM
Hey boys and girls!

I'm looking for a case for the iPad 2, with some specific caracteristics...

I intend to carry it on my backback, and also under my arm sometimes, when I go to the nearest coffee shop with wi-fi to read or study while I grab a coffee and some some cigarretes lol.

I actually think the smart case looks good, just doesn't work for me because it doesn't have very good view angles for when the iPad it's on a table/desk.

What I need: Something that doesn't call much attention, it would be cool to look like a book, or a moleskine, whatever. Regular colors like brown black..

Some good view angles (don't need the 360 thing, not gonna use it vertically), good for skype, table view, etc.

Good when it comes to protection, so I can put it on my backback and don't worry so much.

Also, I don't want to spend a fortune. 30 is a good budget I think.

Thanks in advance!

PS- amazon.co.uk would be a good spot to get it ;)

Have you considered:

(1) Griffin GB02480 Survivor case (a tiny bit outside of your budget)
(2) Griffin Survivor case
(3) TechGuard Premium Folio (this probably isn't going to provide the level of protection you'd like)

Don't quite like non of the 3. Wanted something that looked more simple like a book. I saw a Tucano on a store around here, is it a good brand?

Run through the case threads and take a look at what others are using. When you come across one you like send them a Private Message with your specific questions, read all reviews on it..Thats what I did and it was helpful at deciding between the millions of cases out there...

Is there any official case thread of the iPad 2? Because its kind of hard to run through all the random threads

Get the OtterBox defender. If you are going to carry it under your arm (as you stated) then you are going to drop it. IT's a good case. It will ass some weight but it's not too terrible.
