Self Standing Black iPad 4 Case
Price: $16.56
Company: EZ Buys Direct

I was looking at a protecting case for my iPad with Retina Display (4th gen), I’ve been testing the Self Standing Black iPad 4 Case from EZ Buys Direct. The case is designed like Apple’s Smart Case series.


The case is easy to install on your iPad and is also compatible with the iPad 2 and the iPad 3 (aka the New iPad). You slide your iPad into the pocket and flip the tab on its back to secure it inside the case. The case has holes where it is necessary to access buttons and ports on the iPad. But overall I find it unsatisfactory.

What’s Up with Apple’s iPad Announcements?

Following Apple’s recent iPad announcement, there were two big questions that most people had. First, why update the New (now old) iPad? And second, why such a high price on the iPad mini? To answer these questions, we need to take out our crystal ball and gaze into 2013.

The New New iPad

The iPad 4th generation is the iPad that Apple really wanted to release this year, but the stars were not aligned for a spring release. Wall Street and the media following Apple would have freaked out if Apple didn’t update the iPad last spring. So, we got the “New iPad,” now referred to as the iPad 3rd generation, instead.

I think Apple really wanted an A6 chip and better LTE support in the New iPad, but they just were not ready yet. So, with the holiday season approaching and the stars now aligned, why not put your best foot forward and release the iPad with the best features possible right now!
