The folks at Cooper Cases are apparently quite proud of this tablet folio case: After all, it’s described as both “Infinite” and “Universal” in its lofty name. And in a few aspects, Cooper’s pride may be justified. Unfortunately, too many generic features (including the look) detract from the overall product.
Incase iPad 2 Book Jacket Select in Black
Get comfortable with this excellent case & stand combo by Incase. The Book Jacket blends a useful tablet stand with the classic folio design giving you protective features in a fashionable black leather design. If you are new to the iPad then this case will let you jump in to full tablet enjoyment!
- Custom fit to your iPad2
- Integrated tablet stand
- Nice suede lined front cover
- Cannot stand up in portrait mode
- Expensive price tag
- Not all of iPad2 is protected
Can’t find a comfortable position for watching videos? Not so easy typing emails on your iPad2? Incase’s folio style case is a great answer if you are looking to step up your iPad enjoyment to the next level. I used my iPad for a while without a stand—it worked at the beginning but the more I got into the tablet the more I needed a stand. With this case, the iPad2 easily inserts and is secured by a Velcro strap while giving full access to the headphone jack, cameras, and home button. When the case is closed completely, the suede-lined front cover is held in place by an elastic strap. The protection is good, however your tablet’s corners are still exposed to elements.
- Premium travel case opens to function as a stand
- Pebbled textured cover for enhanced look and feel
- Three viewing angles and one working angle
- New rails hold iPad 2 upright for viewing and typing
- Secure elastic band closure
- Camera lens cutout and direct access to all iPad 2 features
Unfortunately he third lowest angle doesn’t work well—the iPad2 will topple over if you attempt writing in this angle. There are good port openings, and you can still hear the sound very well. The case doesn’t have magnets to put device to sleep, which is now standard in many other cases.
The case offers good protection against bumps and it will absorb impact if you drop your iPad2. Incase could have gone the extra step in protecting the corners of your iPad which are otherwise left exposed.
The faux black leather is tough, with precise stitching. The cutouts are large so there is no error in how they line up with the external ports and jacks.
For $55, the price is okay, especially considering Incase’s brand quality and the exclusive features designed and suited specifically to your iPad2. Cool look too!
The iPad 2 is a lifestyle investment in quality and design—the Book Jacket provides both protection and added enjoyment from the stand features.
