A few months from now summer will be here and for those looking forward for a swim, waterproofing your device becomes a priority. So we’ve checked out a few interesting cases
The Dry Case is a plastic bag with vacuum seal technology. You can place smartphones, iPods, cameras, or anything that can fit into the bag, seal it up, and apply the simple vacuum for an airtight fit. It ships with a strap, so you can wrap it around your arm or waist, and take it down to a hundred feet into the water.
From our experience, it doesn’t disrupt with the phone’s screen’s responsiveness, or affects the camera in any way. It has a built-in jack for microphones, speakers, or earphones.
Besides the Dry Case, we’ve had our hands full on RooCASEs. These cases are for your tablets and offer the usual screen and body protection we’re always seeking for our devices. But their design and other simple functions help them stand out among the rest.
The first on the list, the 360 Dual View Case is made with synthetic leather and capable of rotating from a landscape to portrait stand while setting it on your desk. It has a detachable polycarbonate shell, which relieves itself of the cover flap, and is itself a case that protects your tablet. It’s compatible for the iPad Air, iPad Mini, and the Kindle.
Next is the Executive Portfolio Case and the Dual View Folio Case. The former is made with genuine leather, with detachable features, a strap for stylus pen, and flaps for some accessories and a slot for ID cards. The latter is made with pebble grain synthetic leather, and features the same multi-mode stand but the flaps are missing. Both are compatible for the iPads Air and Mini, Galaxy Tab and Note, Google Nexus, Kindle Fire, and the Asus Memo Pad.
Finally, the Origami Slim Shell Case is polyurethane cover, which has this pretty cool folding style to have your tablet stand in portrait or landscape mode. It’s compatible to the iPads Air and Mini, Galaxy Tab and Note, Google Nexus, and the Kindle Fire.
