Miami, FL, United States (AHN) – Here’s a tip for Apple iPad owners and for future buyers (Verizon just announced it’ll be selling it, too). The best way to carry your new tablet hands down is with the new Tip Tote.
The Tip Tote comes from the Miami-based company Peak Naturals and pharmacist-turned-entrepreneur Vincent Smith. Available at www.tiptote.com, the Tip Tote is sleek, slim, and provides enough security and protection to keep your iPad in tip-top shape.
Available in signature black with a fully padded interior, the Tip Tote has an adjustable, removable shoulder strap which allows it to be slung over the shoulder or easily carried by hand. Ideal for professionals, students, or pretty much anyone who doesn’t want to have their hands tied up carrying either a naked iPad or a handheld case.
The best part is, for the price, you also won’t be strapped for cash. You already spent at least $500 for the iPad. But carrying it around in style will only set you back $33.99. That’s $35 less than the only iPad case currently listed at Best Buy that includes a strap (and it’s a handheld one at that).
“I personally feel this category of mobile computing on tablet style PCs i.e. iPad will explode and provide opportunities for companies to provide accessories for this new category and I want to be at the forefront of this movement with Tip Tote,” Peak Naturals CEO Vincent Smith said. “The general population will be carrying this style device with them everywhere they go from grocery shopping, to the movies, on vacations, shopping and for work.”
For a limited time, they’re also throwing in one of their Tip Tote Grippers, a silicone protective skin for the iPad that protects from dents and scratches and is available in a variety of colors. It retails for an already low-priced $19.95, and it’s free with the purchase of a Tip Tope. A similar style skin on Best Buy is $39.95 alone.
Although the Tip Tote is currently only available in black, additional colors are set to be introduced in 2011.
