Marware says its MicroShell case for the iPad 2 is available for pre-order. It’s an US$39.99 polycarbonate shell with a rubberized finish that snaps on to protect the back and side of the Apple tablet against scratches and impact.

Its design works alone or in conjunction with the Apple Smart Cover and offers access to all buttons, ports and cameras. The MicroShell also comes with Marware’s lifetime warranty.
