I can't remember the last time I walked through a mall and didn't see a variety of Apple gadgets everywhere I looked. From the iPhones to the iPads, it's hard to deny that these are the products of choice when it comes to staying connected in our digital world.
But if you felt the same way about seeing Apple devices everywhere before the holidays, be prepared for an even bigger surge in them now! According to a few articles I've seen, the iPhone 4S rolled out globally faster than any previous iPhone and sales have been through the roof, while the iPad was very likely the most asked for gift this holiday season.
So now that there are millions of new and veteran Apple owners, what are they doing with their purchases? As well as figuring out all of the ins and outs of using them, it's time to add some much-needed accessories and protection so that the happiness of owning an iPhone or iPad doesn't immediately turn to sadness if it is dropped, stepped on or turned into a chew toy by a rambunctious puppy.
And the name that knows all that there is about high quality, functional, stylish cases for our beloved Apple items? Element Case.
Started in 2008 with the creation of their first ultimate iPhone protective case, Element Case has been making luxury accessories for the iPhone and iPad ever since. With a growing staff of highly talented designers, customer service reps, and business minds, this company continues on in their dedication to creating high end, beautifully crafted products made in the USA that are known and talked about throughout the world.
Starting with the extremely affordable Ion and Formula iPhone cases (prices begin at only $19.99)...
...these slim, compact cases are made to ensure that your iPhone has all of the protection it needs in the non-slip, ergonomic, stylish designs that you prefer. Things like the high-shock absorption polymer construction and carbon fiber reinforced back plates mean that no matter if your phone gets tossed around in your purse or accidentally pushed off of the end of the table, it will be safe and secure.
The next step up, the Vapor COMP series of iPhone cases prevent loss in signal, while their aluminum frames are enhanced with extra rubber grip on the sides for a better feel and ergonomics. Starting at $99.99, these cases provide a timelessly classic look with the rock solid protection that you need.
Finally, Element Case's Vapor Pro collection is made up of the most rugged, lightweight, and versatile iPhone cases that they have ever made. Slightly taller than the Vapor COMP for greater impact protection, the Pro also includes larger connector cut outs, a huge variety of colors to choose from and a total weight of only 22 grams.
These top of the line cases start at $129.99 and are a great investment for an item that you are going to use and depend on day after day.
While already having carved out their corner of the iPhone case market, the arrival of the iPad meant that the Element Case designers wanted to create an equally innovative accessory for it. And, with the introduction of the iPad Joule, users have been thrilled with the results.
Featuring a solid stable base with a simple, clean, and elegant design, the Joule enhances the look of the iPad while making it easier to use. Unlike most stands, this one won't tip over when using the iPad's touch screen which allows the iPad to be better utilized on a desk or kitchen counter top.
The magnetically attached tilt foot allows for quick and easy view angle adjustments and the soft lining keeps the iPad or iPad2 securely in place. Available in black, polished silver or a variety of bright colors, the Joule has quickly become a must-have accessory for iPad users everywhere.
If you or someone you know is starting off 2012 with an iPhone or iPad, be sure to head over to Element Case to learn much more about their great products. From cases to stands to accessories galore, it is no wonder that so many consumers have been thrilled with their purchase and the knowledge that their Apple device is prepared for the ups and downs of everyday life.
And, thanks to the generosity of Element Case, one person is going to be ready to start off the New Year right with their iPhone and iPad as well, because...
One lucky person will win a White Vapor COMP Epiphany iPhone case (in their choice of white or blue) AND a Joule iPad stand (in their choice of black or silver)*! Total ARV $220!
