Case available for discounted pre-order
MountMe has announced an all-in-one carrying and mounting case, Freedom for iPad 2. It is geared for a number of surfaces, with a mounting bracket that can be adapted with suction cups or straps. It can be screw-mounted to walls, glass-mounted via the suction cups and strap-mounted on a car headrest or visor. The mounting bracket also can act as a kickstand when going mobile. The case can be removed from the bracket via a quick release mechanism for taking the iPad from a permanent mount, without removing the tablet from its protective case.
The new case and mounting bracket will ship in black, white or red colors, all with a black bracket. The cases will cost $50 but can be pre-ordered for 10- or 25-percent discounts for one or two cases, respectively, with the stipulation that the two cases be different colors. Shipping is listed as soon, with no specific date promised. At press time the site was yet updated for taking orders.
The case is also available and currently shipping for the iPad 1. The previous generation costs $50.
