Cygnett London Underground iPhone case series review

I’m a bit of a London Underground geek. From my first visit to London as a child to my recent trip for Nokia World last October, the Tube has become a bit of a quiet obsession. There is a reason for this: the sprawling, managed chaos; the quiet dignity; the storied history. They all appeal

Incipio Lexington case for the new iPad review

Considering the new iPad wasn’t a huge departure from its predecessor in either appearance or form factor, it’s exciting to see manufacturers tackle the tablet with the same verve as with the previous two. The new iPad is slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad 2, and many cases either didn’t fit properly or didn’t

X-Doria Dash Folio Felt case review for iPad 2

The iPad 3 may be around the corner, but it doesn’t mean the iPad 2 is going anywhere. Even if the current crop of iPad 2 cases are not compatible with the new design, there is going to be a huge market for second-hand tablets and those tablets will still need cases. To that end,

Otterbox Commuter case for Galaxy Nexus review

A lot of people ask me about cases for phones, and I tell them, “if you’re clumsy, get a case. If not, don’t.” But not all cases fit into that utilitarian category. The Galaxy Nexus is a stunning phone, without a doubt, and its back cover is rather slippery, but I have a found a

Otterbox “Livestrong” Commuter case for iPhone 4S review
