The launch of the Apple iPad almost two weeks ago has created an explosion of iPad accessories. In this article we will be taking a closer look at two executive look cases for the iPad from Griffin. The Griffin Elan Sleeve and the Griffin Elan Passport !
Both sample we have received are in a nice black leather with a leather grain structure on it. The packaging is great. No hassle to get it out of the package. Just slide your case side ways out of the packing.
The Griffin Elan Sleeve
The Griffin Elan Sleeveis the simplest of it all but has a great feature that allows you to pull on the closing strap, which elevates the Apple iPad out of it sleeve to allow easy access to the iPad to remove it completely from the sleeve.
The Leather is nice and doesn’t leave any prints behind or picks up any dust. The stiching in in grey which gives this sleeve the nice executive look.
The Griffin Elan Sleeve cost $49.99
The Griffin Elan Passport
The Griffin Elan Passporthas the same materials as described above for the Elan Sleeve. The Elan Passport model is a notebook model. The cover opens up like a notebook and has storage for business cards, bank cards and a sleeve for larger notes. The Apple iPad is inserted first into two secure straps on the right of the case and locked with two elastic straps on the left side. The case is not designed to have it function as a display for the digital picture frame, but in my video I show you that it is still possible.
The case doesn’t protect the outside edges of the iPad like other cases do, menaing it is more exposed.
The Griffin Elan Passport cost $49.99 as well.
The video below will show you the both cases in action, enjoy.
