Does This Case Make My New iPad Look Skinny?

STM launches new, improved and sleeker designs for greater protection of the new iPad.

San Diego, CA (March 16, 2012) – STM Bags today announced two new fitted cases for the new iPad; the skinny 3 and the grip. Both are available for purchase at STM retailers worldwide. The skinny utilizes a folding design for three viewing positions: landscape, portrait and a typing angle. The grip sports a nifty kickstand that allows the user to prop their iPad in typing or viewing modes. Both the skinny and grip feature an instant on-off front cover that wakes up the device and puts it to sleep.

“Our customers are looking for a great way to protect, carry and work with the new iPad,” explained Adina Jacobs, STM’s co-founder. “We feel the skinny and grip fulfill that need and also make a bit of a statement on their sense of style.”

The skinny available in 5 colors (black, berry, mushroom, blue and pink) features an impact resistant back with access to ports and control buttons. The lightweight, slim and protective construction makes for an easy and comfortable carry. The skinny can be quickly set in one of three positions: viewing, typing or portrait mode. Instant on-off front cover with a secure closure to protect battery life.

The grip is available in 4 colors (black, berry, blue and orange). Utilizing a two-position kickstand for both viewing and typing modes, the grip’s super slim design protects the iPad 3 from external abuse.
