Looks like Amazon is getting into the consumer electronics accessory game with their new AmazonBasics line. With the current low end marketplace being flooded with cheap, low quality, trashy accessories, Amazon is stepping in and creating a collection of consumer electronic “basics” that combine quality and low prices with an overall focus on value. They have an impressive array of basic iPad cases and covers to choose from, and the prices are almost too good to be true. Check out the AmazonBasics iPad Accessories after the jump!
This is a well constructed basic black iPad case that snaps shut and also turns into an iPad stand.
