Any of you who own an iPad know there are two main issues. Protection and how to hold it. Of course we want to carry the gorgeous device with us, but all of that screen real estate leaves plenty of room for mishaps and broken glass. There are probably thousands of options for both protection as well as stands, but few combines both. The problem with all of these options is finding good quality and well thought design. As you have seen with many of our reviews, the Gear Diary Team and editors love the design and quality of Speck products, and the CandyShell Wrap for iPad looks like it will not disappoint. Utilizing a soft rubber interior and a hard outer shell, the wrap will also double as a stand.
Here is the complete release from Speck:
SPECK SURROUNDS THE iPad WITH THE NEW “CANDYSHELL WRAP” MULTI-FUNCTION IPAD CASE
PALO ALTO, CA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA – MacWorld — January 25, 2011 – Speck is pleased to introduce the newest addition to its award-winning CandyShell case family, the CandyShell Wrap.

“We’re amazed and inspired by the many new uses of the iPad. Our goal was to narrow the function of the CandyShell Wrap case for iPad to the most useful: viewing and typing,” said Bryan Hynecek, Director of Design at Speck. “CandyShell Wrap is the first of our new generation of functional iPad case designs for mobile devices to hit the market.”
At its core, the CandyShell Wrap is everything a Speck CandyShell is known for – a glossy hard shell exterior with a soft rubberized interior designed to further protect and insulate the iPad from everyday bumps, drops and scrapes. The CandyShell Wrap iPad case features a removable flip-close front cover that can be conveniently folded back to serve as a viewing or typing stand. The sleek outer hard shell case easily slips into a bag or backpack, while the front cover adds extra shock-absorbent impact and scratch protection to the touch screen. The CandyShell Wrap also features a flip-back panel that allows the iPad to dock without removing the case.
The CandyShell Wrap case for iPad is available in DarkLord Black (Black/Black) for $59.95 MSRP. For more product information, please visit.
