Gumdrop Announces New Cases For Apple's iPad 5

Gumdrop has announced the arrival of two new cases for the upcoming iPad 5. Both the Bounce Skin and Drop Stand Hideaway are available now via gumdropcases.com. [caption id="attachment_477409" align="aligncenter" width="627"]Bounce Skin Bounce Skin[/caption] The silicon-based Bounce Skin includes an integrated air chamber for protection. Gumdrop notes that the skin is designed specifically for “rugged environments,” including K-12, and Apple’s One-to-One classrooms. The $34.95 Bounce is available in nine colors, including red, black, clear, light blue, gray, pink, purple, royal blue, and teal green. Full features include:
  • Form-fitting silicone provides precise fit and maximum protection
  • Air-filled chambers deliver extraordinarily unique cushioning
  • Full access to all media controls while in the iPad case
  • No-slip grip texture
  • This case does NOT Include integrated screen cover
The Hideaway Case for the iPad 5 is described as the “most rugged, durable yet ultimately affordable protection” for Apple’s new tablet. It includes a built-in stand, and features a snap-on integrated screen.

Take a look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ooOBF7ISSUs Apple is set to officially unveil the iPad 5 tomorrow, Oct. 22. We would suggest holding off buying these cases until then. Gumdrop is obviously confident its specifications for both cases are correct. However, until Apple confirms what the iPad 5 looks like, one never knows. Don't want to wait? You can order the Bounce Skin, and Hideaway Case at the links provided. ABC News recently wrote about how companies such as Gumdrop and Hard Candy can make, and market, cases before Apple actually announces a product. The article, How iPad Case Makers Make Cases Without iPads, is definitely worth a read. Apple's iPad event begins at 10 a.m. PDT. As usual, we'll be providing live coverage of the event as it happens.
