A few months ago I purchased a Motorola XOOM tablet to allow me to review Android-based apps. After spending several hundred dollars on such a delicate piece of technology, I started looking for a case to protect my investment. The first one I tried was the Otterbox Defender, which was given to me by the company. This two-piece case has one layer of hi-impact polycarbonate and another of silicone. The case gives you access to the XOOM’s various ports and plugs and still allows you to operate the camera without any obstruction. This protection, however, does come at a price—it ups the total weight of the case and tablet by a third. So it comes down to protection versus weight. For me, protection wins out.

The i.Sound Keyboard Portfolio is the only portfolio on the market specifically designed to carry both the Apple Wireless Keyboard and the iPad. That functionality alone makes this portfolio extremely useful and desirable. That is a good thing, since its stability as a viewing stand leaves a lot to be desired.

One of the first things most new iPad owners should do is find a case for their new investment. Luckily (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at things) you have a number of options from which to choose. I have been using Incase’s Convertible Book Jacket for the last couple of months. Of all the cases I have used thus far for my iPad, this is by far my favorite.
