Two new cases work with keyboard, standard docks
iSkin has launched two cases for the iPad, the iSkin Vu for iPad and the iSkin Duo for iPad. The iSkin Vu is a hybrid case combining soft plastics and a hard plastic shield. It features a removable hatch that allows the iPad to dock in the case with a standard or keyboard dock. The hatch also has a protective cover that seals the dock connector port when it is not in use. The case covers and protects the volume and power buttons, the orientation lock and the earphone jack and the case is raised on the front surface to generate a buffer for the screen when laying face down. The iSkin Vu ships in black, blue, orange, purple, pink, aqua and red.
The iSkin Duo for iPad is a hypoallergenic silicone case with a black, embossed front bevel cover that offers raised protection for the screen and contrasts the colored rear. The Duo covers the volume and power buttons and leaves the orientation lock directly accessible. It provides additional silicone in the grip zone, the area where the iPad is handled most often, and slims the case near the dock connector to allow in-case docking with the keyboard and standard docks. The iSkin Duo is available in brown, clear, yellow, purple, pink, red and blue.
The Duo ships June 22 and the Vu ships June 29. The iSkin Vu for iPad is $65, while the iSkin Duo is $50.
