iSkin (http://www.iSkin.com) has released a line of protective covers for the Pad — the iSkin Duo and the iSkin Vu. The iSkin Duo is a low-profile, dock friendly way to guard and enhance the tablet.
Available in a variety of two-tone color options, the Duo’s body color is fused with a front-facing black screen frame surfaced with an embossed designer pattern. It’s also equipped with side grips for better handling, an earphone port cover and fully protected volume, home and sleep buttons.
iSkin created the Duo for iPad from premium silicone that is both hypoallergenic and free of chemicals like bisphenol-A, phthalates, latex and PVC. The silicone has been treated with a low-dust and low-lint finish that purportedly helps it to resist the natural tendencies of silicone to attract small particles. In addition, the Duo is embedded with Microban antimicrobial protection, exclusive to iSkin, which works continuously to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungus that cause odor and staining.
The iSkin Vu features a hybrid design that incisions next-generation, environmentally friendly soft plastic with a beautifully patterned hard plastic shield, says Andrew Ackloo, president and CEO of iSkin. Together, they fully encapsulate and protect the entire iPad against impact, scratches and other hazards.
Te Vu features a rear-bottom hatch that can be removed to allow the iPad to dock with the Apple iPad Keyboard or Standard Dock without ever having to remove the product. The hatch also includes a charging cable opening with an integrated protective cover that seals and protects from dust, dirt or other impurities. Other features include recessed volume and power button coverage, which reduces accidental presses while handling and rotating the iPad, an integrated earphone port cover, and home button protection. A raised screen border is designed to protect the screen when the iPad is placed face-down on any surface.
