Belkin Leather Sleeve For iPad
There are more cases and sleeves available for the iPad than any other type of accessory, but for daily use at home I’ve settled on Belkin’s Leather Sleeve. Rather than opting for the folding ‘folio’ design used by many of its rivals, the Leather Sleeve has a one-piece design that leaves the iPad screen visible at all times, so you can just pick it up and press the ‘Home’ button to start using it straight away. The Leather Sleeve frames the screen nicely too, giving you a good view while providing all-round protection.

Griffin Elan Passport
When I’m lounging around at home I use Belkin’s Leather Sleeve to protect my iPad, but if I’m going to a meeting and I want to look smart and businesslike then I slip the iPad into Griffin’s Elan Passport case instead. Available in either black or cream colours, the Passport is lined with soft ‘micro-suede’ to protect the iPad screen, and folds open to display the iPad like the high-tech digital notepad that it is. The left-hand side of the case also includes pockets for business cards and slipping in larger bits of paper as well.

Ten Essential... iPad Accessories
"Can you believe that Apple doesn’t even include a set of headphones with the iPad?"
thank christ for that - since if they had, it would be the standard apple earphones - the sound polluting scourge of the last 10 years.
a second portable device that can show flash websites would be an essential 'extra' if i accidentally owned an ipad.
ZAGG Invisible Shield
Personally, I've put the ZAGG overlays on mine, if the price looks a bit steep it's because you get overlays for front and back, and a special solution to apply them with that makes they really easy to put on. Also the price stated doesn't just get translated into the same pound value when you order.
I'll also say what about the Apple slip case?....it doubles as a stand or puts the iPad on a slant to make typing easier, and looks very nice too.
What Brits should do first ...
Learn to read Australian before you go into the store. Knowing the Retail Strategy can save you quite a bit of money.
£500 or so quid for a device with no real purpose. And another "essential" £600 or so to make it useable for that "no real" defined purpose.
Makes my £500 laptop seem an eminently better deal.
But hey... it's not news that Apple fans have more money than sense.
