Premium Accessories Protect and Enhance the iPad Experience
Nashville, TN — January 27, 2010 — Griffin Technology Inc., maker of ingenious ways to power, play, protect and connect, today responded to Apple's new product announcement with a line of accessories to complement the new iPad. Griffin's announcement includes: Elan Passport, Elan Sleeve, FlexGrip, Jumper and Screen Care Kit for iPad, the first offerings in a line of Griffin devices designed to enhance the iPad user experience.
"The iPad marks an exciting step forward for consumer electronics," said Paul Griffin, Founder and CEO of Griffin Technology. "We are committed to producing devices that enhance the technological experience, and these new accessories for iPad are a great addition to the Griffin family."
Griffin's first offering of accessories for Apple iPad include:
No matter where you and your iPad are headed, you can both travel in style with Elan Passport. The one-piece folio flips open to reveal your iPad's Multi-Touch display, then closes like a book for privacy and protection. Elan Passport's micro suede lining protects your iPad, all over, from scratches and smudges. Held shut by a tab closure, the inner cover includes pockets for ID, important papers, and more. You're going to take your iPad everywhere. So you'll need the case that's ready for anything.
Slim enough to slip into a backpack, bag or briefcase; tough enough to protect your Apple iPad from whatever it may bump into in there. Slip your iPad into the Elan Sleeve, then flip the tab closure down to secure it. Gently pull the tab to slide your iPad out quickly and safely. For protection that looks great, Elan Sleeve is constructed of a stain-resistant synthetic outer shell with a smooth micro suede interior.
Griffin's FlexGrip case wraps your Apple iPad in durable silicone that's easy to grip and protects against dirt, dings, dents and scratches. Fits snug around your iPad, and allows complete access to audio output jack, dock connector, Multi-Touch display and all controls. FlexGrip is available in 4 complementary colors: blue, white, black and purple.
Jumper is a soft and stretchy yet tough neoprene sleeve that protects iPad from dust, dirt, scratches and fingerprints. The integrated pull tab tucks closed for 100 percent coverage of iPad. Jumper is slim enough to fit easily into your bag, backpack or briefcase.
Screen Care Kit, Matte
Do something nice for the Multi-Touch display that does so much for you. Clean and protect your touchscreen with Griffin's Screen Care Kit. The included premium cleaning cloth removes smudges, dust and fingerprints without messy liquids, and without scratching your screen.
