iSkin Introduces Vu and solo Smart for iPad® 2

Editors Note: There are two photos associated with this press release.

iSkin, a global leader in premium protective covers and other fashionable accessories for mobile gadgets, is now providing two great solutions for the iPad 2: the Vu and solo Smart.

Vu for iPad 2

The Vu for iPad 2 features hybrid material design that combines qualities that are rarely ever seen in the accessories market. Quite simply, it is a meticulous blend of elegance, protection and functionality.

A vibrant, soft thermoplastic polymer body is fused to a clear, deco-patterned, hard plastic back that profiles the Apple brand and provides a slim-fit fashion statement to style-conscious technoistas.

However, its defining feature is the built-in display stand. "The union of the hard plastic to the softer polymer allowed us to create an integrated multi-positional viewing stand that blends smoothly with the back of the Vu when it isn't in use." says Andrew Ackloo, iSkin president and CEO. "Unlike anything found in other case designs, owners can handsomely park their iPad 2 in both landscape and portrait mode without the added bulk."

"Compromise is not in our vocabulary," says Ackloo. "We strive to provide top-shelf accessories that are beautifully designed, reliable and always in vogue."

solo Smart for iPad 2

While the Vu is an excellent stand-alone accessory for the iPad 2, the solo Smart is an inspired design to complement the Apple® Smart Cover and a testament to versatility and synergy.

The clear, soft-case composition provides first-class body protection and classic lines from edge-to-edge. A uniquely engineered polycarbonate bracket, CoverLock™, strengthens latching and allows the Apple® Smart Cover to be securely fastened yet gives users the option to carry their device with or without the Apple® Smart Cover.

"Instead of just creating another accessory, we wanted to build on the great work already established by Apple®," says Ackloo. "We are quite proud of the solo Smart's CoverLock™ technology and how it works with the Smart Cover, making the two products an inseparable combination."

The solo Smart complements any Apple® Smart Cover in a clear color, while the Vu comes in Onyx (Black), Bondi (Marine Blue) and Vive (Purple).

As can be expected from any iSkin product, both covers share premium features that are essential when creating accessory products for the mobile consumer:

First is exclusive to iSkin cases only:embedded Microban® antimicrobial protection that helps prevent the growth of bacteria that can cause stains and odors on the product, making it ideal for homes, institutions and educational environments.

Second are quality materials and precision molding and cuts that provide clear and clean access to buttons, switches, cameras and ports.

The Vu will retail at 59.99 (USD), while the solo Smart will sell for 49.99 (USD). More information on the Vu and solo Smart can be found at http://www.iSkin.com/iPad2.
