CIA Trusts Tablet Shells to Protect Their iPads in Homeland S02E12
Another tablet case has been spotted in a TV series by the restless Tablet2Cases team. This time Saul Berenson, in Homeland S02E12, is using an iPad encased in a tablet shell to check out the list of deceased and wounded in a terrorist blast.
Saul (played by Mandy Patinkin) enters a command tent set up to deal with CIA building blast aftermath, and a commanding officer hands him an iPad wearing what looks to be a durable tablet shell. Although this type of cases is great for protecting the back and sides of a tablet, CIA operatives could approach device protection with a bit more care and check out some rugged and tough accessories, designed for action in the field. The case Saul holds for a while and then returns provides the following features:
