The founder of Assero Industries found a major drawback to the iPad was that he couldn’t use it unless he was sitting. He wanted a case that would work well for the commuter, traveler, and sports enthusiast like himself. He wanted a case that would serve as a mobile office to keep his iPad, wallet, phone, and other necessities close at hand and that would also serve as a desk when he needed it, so he designed the Protector and Defender cases. Both cases have a grab handle for easy hand-carrying; both can be slung over the shoulder for hands-free carrying. The revolutionary thing about these cases is that they can be worn front-facing. The iPad is stored in in neoprene pouch on the front; open this pouch and it becomes a desk so you can safely use your iPad anywhere. The Defender is loaded with pouches and pockets to carry everything you need for your day – wallet, phone, cards, pens – even an iPod pocket with headphone cord access. The Protector is more streamlined and allows for minimal accessories – so thin you can even wear it under your clothes. The Assero Defender and Protector cases will launch later this month at MacWorld, but you can pre-order them now for a planned February 1, 2011 delivery. The Defender is $129.99 and the Protector is $89.99. See more photos and learn much more about these unique new cases at the Assero Industries website.
