New add-ons for the iPad 2 offer protection, style
The two main accessories a new iPad 2 owner would be looking for right after buying would be a screen protector (to help cut down on the smudginess of oily fingerprints) and a protective case for transporting the iPad 2. Among the many companies offering these, new items from Moshi and Mivizu fit the bill, with a "no-bubble guaranteed" screen protector and Smart Cover-style magnetic case, respectively.
Pure line of screen protectors also launched
SwitchEasy has launched a new case and three screen protectors for the iPod touch 4G. The case is the SwitchEasy Nude, an ultra-thin polycarbonate design that is only 1mm thick. It has a UV- and scratch-resistant gloss coating and offers easy access to buttons, with cutaways for the power and volume switches. It comes with a pair of data port and audio jack protectors and antistatic screen guards. The new case is available in semi-transparent black or clear and is shipping now for $20.
Pure line protects front, Pure + front and back
SwitchEasy has launched two lines of iPhone 4 screen protectors, the Pure and the Pure +. The PureProtect, one of four products in the Pure series, is a scratch-resistant glossy membrane, arriving with three guards, while the PureAntiReflect is a matte finish guard that ships in a pair. The PureReflect is a mirrored, gloss design, while the PurePrivacy limits the viewing angle to help reduce readability from the sides. The PurePrivacy and PureReflect each arrive with a single guard.
Scosche ships cases with kickstands for media view
Scosche and CAZE have launched new cases for the iPhone 4. Scosche has eight new cases and three new screen protectors. The kickBACK g4 features a kickstand for media viewing and a glossy polycarbonate exterior with a flexible rubber interior in black, grey and white with grey modeling.

iLuv, Scosche and Tumbuk2 have introduced a variety of accessories for Apple’s iPad, ranging from sleeves and cases to protective film. iLuv has unveiled six new case designs including a flip-open Leather Cover available in black or pink, as well as a soft Casual Fabric Case which comes in three different colors and features a strap that goes around the outside. For an almost transparent look, the company is offering the Ultra Thin clear case that protects the back and sides of the iPad and comes with a screen film.

RadTech has expanded its ClearCal anti-glare film offerings with new sizes for Apple’s 17-inch MacBook Pro and 20-inch iMac. The film is designed to help reduce glare from a glossy display in brightly lit or outdoor environments.
