Empower Apple iPad-Carrying Students With WaterField's Protective, Stylish Cases

WaterField Designs iPad Travel Express and iPad Wallet Take the Backache Out of Student Life -- Lightweight & Protective, All-in-One Cases for the iPad, Wireless Keyboard, and Accessories

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 20, 2012) - With Apple's new iBooks 2 and iTunes U, the iPad will become students' digital course hub for everything from studying texts to taking notes. With a WaterField Designs™ protective case, iPads can withstand the inevitable student use-and-abuse. WaterField Designs, a San Francisco manufacturer of custom laptop sleeves, bags and cases for digital gear, offers the iPad Travel Express™ and the iPad Wallet™ -- svelte and highly-protective, all-in-one, iPad carry solutions for today's iPad generation.

"Finally students can unload heavy course books and get some back relief," notes WaterField Designs owner Gary Waterfield. "The iPad Travel Express and the iPad Wallet have protective pockets for the iPad with room for other student necessities -- a wireless keyboard, mouse, charger, keys, phone, and wallet. Toss either in a backpack or opt for the shoulder strap and they're ready for class, the library or anywhere... minus the backache."
