This past week, my five year old son was holding the iPad when it slipped out of his hand and yep — the screen cracked!! While it was in a case, it obviously was not a strong enough one to help absorb the shock of the impact. We are getting it taken care of, and so I’ve already taken steps to try to avoid this from happening again.
I just ordered this Otterbox Defender Series Otterbox case for my iPad2 for $42.15. This is 37% off of the retail price of $89.95. If you know Otterbox, you know that these cases are built to last and are rarely on sale! If you happen to own an iPad3, you are in luck as this case will work on your device as well.
There are other cases, but I read the reviews and many of them did not deliver as expected, but this one ended up with 4 1/2 out of 5 stars and so much positive feedback that I knew it was the case for us!!
