Belkin presents three new sleeves - Vue, Max, and Grip to protect your new Apple iPad while you’re on the move. These 10-inch sleeves are designed with reinforced panels to fully protect your Apple iPad touch screen from scratches, while still offering storage for other media devices such as an Apple iPhone, media reader, or earbuds. The Apple iPad user is one who is moving from place to place, so we’ve designed our cases to protect the device from this movement and activity. People will be using their Apple iPad tablet often to get online, so they’ll need easy access to them and, similarly, they’ll need their case to be gripable but also protective.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Android tablet can be comfortably held in one hand, just like holding a Smartphone, although you will notice its weight after a while. I put the tablet flat on the table to keep working with it. Operation is intuitive and the tablet’s buttons in combination with the touch control make it easy to navigate. The memory card slot for the microSD / SDHC cards and the SIM slot are found on the side of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. In addition, the on/off button and the volume button are neatly integrated into the side. The front of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, there is a VGA camera for video calling, and a 3 Megapixel digital camera is on the back.
