Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 28, 2014
Effective immediately, iGear will now be referred to as üuber. The name change is to help reflect the company’s growth into the tech superstore it has become. üuber will still provide the Apple device cases that were the foundation of the company, such as the iPad Slim Tough Case and the iPad Flip Turn Keyboard case. üuber is also looking to the future with the pending launch of more new and exciting products such as cases for Chromebooks and innovative school gear.
One of their first cases developed, the Slim Tough Case for iPad is still a powerhouse. üuber STC case features a multi-layer construction using an inner hard case, outer rubber skin, and a built-in screen protector. The new G4 case for iPad Air features extra padding around all corners, improved scratch resistance on the screen protector, additional stands for propping the iPad at a low typing angle in any orientation, and a thin-profile that fits nicely in Bretford and other charging carts.
A newer addition to their lineup, the Flip Turn case has been a runaway hit. The flip turn mechanism is arguably one of the most versatile on the market. It performs acrobatic tricks on the iPad, allowing it to be used as a tablet, a laptop, or movie player. By simply opening the case, the iPad wakes up and goes into laptop mode, tilting the screen at a comfortable angle for typing. When turned 180 degrees, the keyboard base becomes a stand, turning the iPad into a beautiful presentation device. Folding the case completely flat hides the keyboard, and the iPad becomes a standard tablet. The tension closure system also keeps the iPad closed when not in use, with an auto wake/sleep smart cover design to conserve battery.
