The bright graphics of Trina Turk clothing have found a new home in M-Edge line's of tech hardware cases. The zigzag, trellis, and botanical prints that make up the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" ($60), iPhone 5 ($40), iPad 2 to 4 ($60), and laptop (price TBD) cases stopped us in our tracks at CES. Take a look at the patterns that just may have you dreaming of California even on a Winter day.
We got an early look at M-Edge's new and stylish case lineup last night at the Pepcom event at the CES. Coming in a wide range of styles, M-Edge has always supplied the ereading masses with quality and good-looking accessories, but now the company is venturing into the iPhone market as well. We spotted these pearlescent and lightweight cases at the booth, along with other Kindle Fire, Kindle, and Nook covers we wanted to snap up. Check out a few of our favorites in the gallery!
There may be many ways to dress up your Kindle, Nook, or iPad in style, but if you are the creative (or picky) type, soon you can take matters into your own artistic hands. The accessories company M-Edge — which already offers a rainbow of ereader cover possibilities — has unveiled a service that allows you to easily design your own ereader case through its website MyEdge.
The process is simple: just choose which ereader you have, and use MyEdge's tools to play around with colors and designs, upload pictures, and add text. And since you're obviously a bibliophile, the service will offer a selection of vintage book covers (think Catch 22, Moby Dick, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) from clothing designer Out of Print as well as designs from artists around the world.
If this announcement has you already creating the perfect case in your head, read on for pricing, materials, and availability after the jump.
We've got a pretty big list of awesome cases for your Kindles, iPads, Nooks, and Readers going already, but I've come across a few from M-Edge recently that I couldn't help but draw your eye to. The company is prepping to release a big batch of cases for the new third-gen Kindle soon, but until then, check out some of these crave-worthy sleeves and jackets that will cover the hardworking ereader you have now.
Unlike other so-called "waterproof cases," the Guardian Kindle Case ($80 for six-inch display models) provides an airtight seal in up to three feet of water, so you can take your Kindle to the beach, the pool, the lake, just about anywhere without worrying about leaks. Even better, its buoyancy keeps it floating on the surface so you can read hands-free. The Guardian comes in three colors (black, red, blue) and has a flexible surface so you can still utilize your Kindle's controls.
It's a bit of an investment for $80, but considering the equipment it's protecting, I'd say it's worth it — especially for you waterbugs!
