Bet you thought we were going to offer some sort of insightful commentary on the Casey Anthony case. Nah. We’ll leave that to the leachy Nancy Graces of the world.
Instead, we’re here to talk about a case that’s captivated us just as much. It’s the Hammerhead Hard Shell Case for iPad 2. (Don’t worry, it’s also available for the original version, we just didn’t test that one out.)
We love our iPad 2, but we’re not impressed with the smart cover you can get through Apple. The fact that it doesn’t secure itself more permanently to the iPad has caused more than our fair share of close calls dropping the expensive device. And trust us, when you’re using an iPad in bed and it falls onto your lap because the cover has popped off, it’s not the best way to start the day – or drift quietly to sleep at night.
The Hammerhead is different. Your iPad securely pops into the hard shell case that covers both the front and the back of the device, meaning no more scratched Apple logos or ugly scuffs on the back of the unit.
Just like the Apple smart cover, this one awakens immediately upon opening the cover. In addition to positions for typing and viewing in landscape mode, the Hammerhead also allows you to prop up your iPad for viewing in portrait mode, something the Apple version doesn’t do well at all.
This case gives us total peace of mind and has completely eliminated the discomfort of dropping our iPad on our crotch. Unfortunately, it’s done nothing to improve our Angry Birds proficiency.
