Save 15% Off All Griffin Accessories using coupon code ‘IPADACC415‘ Griffin Technology is no stranger to Apple accessories. They’ve been making some of the top cases, covers, and accessories for Apple devices since the first generation iPod. With the launch of the new iPad 3, the traditionally more conservatively styled Griffin has revamped their lineup of iPad accessories and even added a splash of color here and a dash of fashion there. One of the top selling iPad 3 cases from Griffin this year has got to be the IntelliCase folio. It’s thin, it’s colorful, it’s functional, and it’s incredibly popular. Read on to see why!
One of the coolest features of the iPad 3 is it’s thin form factor. It’s so thin and so portable that you almost cringe sometimes to put it in a thick bulky case. That’s why the Apple Smart Cover has been such a popular seller ever since it was released last year. However the Apple Smart Cover has one major drawback- it doesn’t protect the back of your iPad. This is where the Griffin IntelliCase folio stand for the iPad 3 (and 2) steps up to the plate and hits a home run.
Griffin calls it “a marriage of protective polycarbonate (to protect the back of your iPad) and flexible PU (to protect your Multi-Touch display).” It’s a smart cover on the front, complete with magnets that automatically turn the iPad on and off, and it’s a hard shield in the back. The front cover folds into 3 sections and can be folded into multiple shapes to stand your iPad however you like. The whole surface of this case is micro-textured to enhanced the grip so it is much less likely to jump out of your hands unexpectedly.
As far as size and weight goes, this case adds less than 3mm of overall thickness to your iPad and it can’t weigh more than a few ounces. Basically you won’t even realize it’s there, while at the same time you will get to experience the satisfaction of knowing your iPad is fully protected at all times.
In the past, it seemed like Griffin was allergic to colors and fashion. That has all started to change. Perhaps the coolest feature of this case is the fact that it is available in a boat load of colors. Our review unit came in a nice midnight blue color and we quite like the way it looks. You can also get the Griffin Intellicase folio in Peacock (we think that means green), Pink, Red, Black, and White. So no matter what your wardrobe or color preference demands you will be able to find something to match it with this case! If you are looking for ultra thin ultra cool and ultra colorful protection for your iPad 3, then you’ve just found it right here! The Griffin IntelliCase is currently available for $59.99.
