Let’s face it- the main things we all look for nowadays are versatility, battery life, and affordability. We have yet to see anything from one of the biggest players out there, Sony, and if anyone can pull it off to take a second place in the tablet world next to Apple it is Sony.

thedaily-ipad

I downloaded Rupert Murdoch’s The Daily over the weekend, it’s the first daily newspaper designed for the iPad. It has plenty of bells and whistles, animated transitions, embedded videos, and plenty of content to go with it. They sure put the iPad’s processing power to the test. But it didn’t totally grab me. It felt a little too overdone.

dexim-ipad-case-33-gal

Though pre-emptive cases for the yet-unreleased iPad 2 are nothing new, it’s the machined aluminum mock-up of the second-generation iPad inside this one’s sleek, black leather covers that really demands attention. Though we won’t know exactly where the specs came from, it seems absurd Dexim would go through all the trouble of designing a tight-fitting sleeve for it – which, by the way, the original iPad doesn’t fit into – if they weren’t absolutely certain about its accuracy.
