February 22, 2011 in Bags and Cases (E)
[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - WaterField Designs, a San Francisco manufacturer of custom notebook sleeves, bags and cases for digital gear, introduces a line of cases for the celebrated Samsung Galaxy Tab. Customers can choose from five different styles to suit their individual tastes and protection needs - from a minimalist Suede Jacket to a Galaxy Tab Travel Case. Each of these made-in-San Francisco cases is available for pre-order now and will ship February 28.
"The Galaxy Tab is garnering much attention among mobile entertainment lovers and professionals," said Gary Waterfield, company founder. "Tab users are clamoring for ways to protect their device while on the road. These five custom-fitting cases provide options for everyone from students to CEOs."
The Ultimate SleeveCase for the Galaxy Tab provides scratch-free and compact, multi-layer protection. A nearly indestructible, ballistic nylon outer shell is lined with high-grade shock-absorbing neoprene. An impact-resistant insert protects the Tab screen and an Ultrasuede screen-side liner keeps it clean. A bottom loop helps with easy device removal. Users may customize with several options: horizontal or vertical case orientation, brown leather or lead indium trim, a shoulder strap and/or a removable "Piggyback" accessory pouch.
The EXO SleeveCase is designed to hold and protect the Samsung tablet when it is inside another case such as a folio style holder. The EXO is an extension of the Ultimate SleeveCase, without the screen insert and Ultrasuede(R) liner, which are less relevant when the device is housed inside another case. The EXO offers the same options as the Ultimate SleeveCase.
The SlipCase for the Tab sports an Ultrasuede(R), scratch-free liner with a high-impact, rigid insert for screen protection, all enveloped by a water-resistant outer shell. Available in four vibrant colors.
The Suede Jacket, made from scratch- and static-free Ultrasuede(R), protects the device from the occasional bump or scrape. Custom sizing plus the stretch memory of Ultrasuede(R) insure a snug fit for the Tab. A layer of neoprene along the bottom edge adds extra protection for carrying the device upright within a bag. An optional mesh outside pocket holds accessories.
The Travel Case fits the Galaxy Tab perfectly with fitted-pockets for the USB cable and power adapter. Soft, padded lining keeps each item protected, and self-locking zippers ensure content security. A front pocket with mesh dividers stores additional items and a rubberized base makes for an easy grip.
