Smell rarely rates a mention in tech product reviews. At least not in a good way. Yet that was the first thing I noticed when opening the Snugg Snugg iPad 2 Case Cover and Flip Stand in Black Leather.
As the name makes clear, Snugg’s case is made of real black leather and it has that distinctive real leather smell.
Leather means it’s not the slimmest, lightest iPad cover. On the other hand the Snugg case is stylish, comfortable and does a first class job protecting the tablet from damage.
Apple’s iPad had its fourth birthday last month. The device changed the face of personal computing. It triggered a decline in PC sales that looks far from over. It’s popular with corporations and consumers.
The iPad is everywhere.
Apple’s iPad Air is thinner, smaller, lighter and more powerful than earlier iPads.
Smaller means third-party add-on makers like Logitech either have to rework existing keyboard cover designs, come up with something new or miss out on potential business.
Apple’s iPad Air is already a huge sale hit. Prices for the iPad Air start at $750 at Apple’s online store for a Wi-Fi model and $950 for the lowest cost model able to connect to the cellular network.
If you don’t want all the big upfront cost in one go you can get a cellular iPad Air model on a plan from Vodafone. The plans include data and the new iPads will work on Vodafone’s fast 4G mobile data network.
Vodafone’s prices are $200 lower than the normal list price for the same device so long as you sign for 12 months on the $50 a month, 2GB Broadband Regular plan. Given that you’ll need to spend that much on data if you buy a cellular-equipped iPad Air, that’s a good deal.
Vodafone says the iPad Air is on sale at selected company-branded retail stores from today.
