Here is an innovative iPad 2 accessory called LaunchPort from iPort, the manufacturer of the in-wall iPod home music system.
The Launchport is a three-part mounting system that includes the PowerShuttle iPad 2 case, an inductive charging system and an iPad 2 stand is a table top called the BaseStation, along with their WallStation that is an in-wall charger. The LaunchPort system is a very cool way to keep your iPad 2 charged from anywhere in the home or office. The wall mount and stand design uses magnets that connect to the PowerShuttle iPad 2 case.
The iPort LaunchPort iPad 2 accessories are available now for pre-order over at the LaunchPort website. The LaunchPort WallStation is priced at $199, LaunchPort BaseStation is priced at $199 and the LaunchPort PowerShuttle is priced at $149. We are hoping to get our hands on the LaunchPort system soon for a full hands-on review. Will you be buying this one? Let us know your thoughts after watching the video (below the break).

If you are looking for a high quality case for your iPad we’ve found one that is also on sale. The Targus Versavu Cover & Stand is designed exclusively for the iPad 2 device. This iPad 2 Case has a stylish design and a really sturdy construction. One primary feature that we like is the Targus rotating stand that allows your iPad 2 to easily pivot into portrait and landscape modes while still in the case. This iPad 2 case also is cleverly designed to allow the iPad Apple logo to peek through while covered in the case. The hard-sided exterior edges provides a protection without being too bulky. Targus has done a nice job on the interior design by lining this iPad 2 case with some color and a soft fabric so as to not add friction wear on the device.
Admittedly, I enjoy the beauty and design of the iPad 2 so much that I prefer it naked without a case. However, I do realize the need for protection especially recently when a friend dropped my iPad 2 while watching a video. Thankfully it hit carpet and there was no damage. Finding a case that elegantly matches up with the iPad’s stunning design is a challenge. Some iPad 2 cases that we’ve reviewed seem rushed to market and get negative marks for design points.
In this iPad 2 case review we’re looking at the Snugg iPad 2 Leather Case Cover and Flip Stand. The first thing we notice with this iPad 2 case is the classy business style design of this black faux leather case and stand. There is high quality off-white stitching along the edges and stiff extra protection under the front and rear cover of this iPad 2 case. The interior has a lovely suede feeling inside which is soft to the touch to keep scratches away from your iPad 2. (video demo below break) Continue reading
If you have had other iOS devices then this iPad accessory maker is not new to you. GelaSkins creates protective iPad 2 covers and skins are one of the best in the iPad accessories industry. GelaSkins designs very stylish vinyl decals which can pimp out your iPad 2 more than the typical clear protectors. We really like this iPad 2 accessory because they are easy to apply to your iPad. Gelaskins are a dry application so you can remove them countless times without any residue left on your iPad 2. GelaSkins for the iPad 2 are high quality, beautiful, with a plethora of designs by artists. It is really great to be able to design your own custom iPad 2 cover so that it reflects you. The Gelaskins website has a tool that allows you to upload your own photograph or artwork. Then you crop and adjust it to your liking bam you are ready for Gelaskins to produce your one-of-a-kind iPad skin. ZAGG also offers some great iPad 2 accessories that protect your device including ZAGGskins but Gelaskins has probably the best selection of stylish designs to choose from. GelaSkins is based and manufactured in Ontario, Canada so you will need to allow an extra few days for standard delivery. Continue reading
