Okay, now these are some good-looking iPad cases and we can’t wait to get our hands on them!
monCarbone’s just announced HoverCoat is a carbon fiber case for the iPad so named “from its paper‐thin design and near weightless attributes”. Made from 100% real carbon fiber, the Hover Coat is just .6mm thick (less than .03″) and weighs less than 42 grams (less than 1.5 oz). It fits snugly around the iPad while allowing access to all controls and ports and because it is made of real carbon fiber, which means it is STRONG.
As Ming Chen, managing director of monCarbone notes:
Previously used only in the aerospace industry, top racing cars and high‐end sports equipment, carbon fiber is virtually unbreakable and offers sports car styling. iPad users don’t want just another run‐of‐the‐mill plastic or silicon cover to protect their device! They want something that truly stands out in a crowd, without adding bulk and weight, to maintain and protect the beauty of their device – and HoverCoat is the solution!
HoverCoat cases are available for pre-order www.moncarbone.com for an MSRP of $89.88. They will also be available at major US retailers some. We have some review samples on the way, and we look forward to sharing our thoughts with you soon.
Also of note, monCarbone is accepting Hovercoat for iPhone 4 pre-orders on the site as well.

monCarbone Unveils Paper‐Thin, Super‐Strength Carbon Fiber Case for iPad
Dallas, TX, USA (July 8, 2010) – monCarbone announced today the market launch of its newest product, the “HoverCoat” carbon fiber case for iPad. Named for its paper‐thin design and near weightless attributes, HoverCoat is made from 100% real carbon fiber to keep the iPad safe and protected in style!
“Market research indicates that consumers want a lightweight case that does its job, but also shows off its beauty and conveys a high class image,” commented Ming Chen, managing director at monCarbone. “HoverCoat offers a stunning design that is as thin and light as possible to instantly express these desired qualities and make a bold statement!”
Carbon fiber is the ideal material to appeal to high‐end users in the electronic accessories market, according to monCarbone. The precision engineering of carbon fiber provides high tensile strength and durability greater than the properties of steel! Through its unique crisscross pattern, it also provides an elegant look and the feel of luxury.
“Previously used only in the aerospace industry, top racing cars and high‐end sports equipment, carbon fiber is virtually unbreakable and offers sports car styling,” Ming continued. ‘iPad users don’t want just another run‐of‐the‐mill plastic or silicon cover to protect their device! They want something that truly stands out in a crowd, without adding bulk and weight, to maintain and protect the beauty of their device – and HoverCoat is the solution!”
Each HoverCoat case is hand crafted and tailor made to ensure accurate fit and contour. HoverCoat for iPad is a mere 0.6mm thin (less than .03”) and weighs less than 42 grams (less than 1.5 oz), and yet covers the iPad device snugly and flawlessly. Intelligent design allows complete access to controls and ports, similar to previous monCarbone products.
“Our carbon fiber cases have sold to more than 35 countries around the world so far,” Ming commented. “This represents over a third of the countries (and growing) where Apple products are currently available. We are excited about this new release and expect to see our brand continue to grow and penetrate the market space for high‐end electronic accessories.”
HoverCoat cases, along with other monCarbone products, may be ordered online at www.moncarbone.com, and soon to be available at major US retailers. The retail price of HoverCoat for iPad is $89.99. monCarbone also announced plans to release several other iPad carbon fiber cases in 2010, with features such as kick stands, double‐sided protection and carrying handles. In addition, a HoverCoat case for the new iPhone 4 will be released in August – with pre‐orders now being accepted on the monCarbone website.
