Ladies and Gentleman, I have an urgent and shocking news story. I need all of you to stop what you’re doing and listen. Ron Burgundy isn’t the only hot piece of burgundy-related news in town.
Are you looking to give your iPad Mini some extra protection whilst making sure it stays classy? Are you a fan of rich mahogany and leather-bound books? Are you someone who loves the latest tech, but also pines for a time when you could storm castles on noble steeds? Then we have the case for you!
iPad Mini’s are beautiful, but pricey. As tempting as it is to leave them uncovered and bask in their glory, the threat of damaging them as a result is pretty high (I did exactly this – needless to say, I immediately regretted my decision not to invest in some sort of iPad Mini case). The Twelve South BookBook Case and Stand is a fantastic way of keeping your Mini safe and still looking good (and I mean really good). Designed to replicate a beautifully-aged folio and made with genuine leather, the Twelve South not only protects your Mini and lends it a sophisticated, classic style, but also keeps the device that bit more safe by making it considerably more conspicuous.
Basically, I don’t know how to put this, but the BookBook case is kind of a big deal. If you’re still not sold on this piece of undeniable genius, it also functions as a highly adaptable, hands-free stand, so you can watch films and browse with ease while you brew a hot pot of coffee or work the arms. The adjustable case means that you can change the angle to suit whatever you’re doing, and it can be swapped back to the case with the same ease as running ones hand through the beard of Zeus.
The practicality of the Twelve South case is an outstanding compromise between protection and comfort. The combination of the plush, velvety interior and the tough, protective covers mean that the iPad will be able to withstand small impacts easily, and at just over 200g, it will be barely noticeable in terms of added weight. In addition, the all around nature of the case negates the necessity of a screen protector. In short, it’s by no means a case of style over substance!
So if you’re looking for an iPad Mini cover that’ll make you stand out from the crowd more than an improvised jazz flute solo and help keep your iPad safe from both damage and theft, look no further than the Twelve South BookBook Case and Stand. You stay classy, Mobile Fun readers!

Star Wars is a tale of two loveable droids on an important mission far from home. One of these droids is a little more loveable than the other though, and that’s why we’ve decided to stamp his distinctive likeness onto an iPad case for your enjoyment.Our Star Wars R2-D2 iPad cover
works with the second and third generation iPad, and will lend a whole lot of awesomeness as well as a hearty measure of protection. The R2-D2 case is made of high quality silicone with a soft touch, giving you the benefits of increased grip, shock protection and scratch resistance. Of course, as it’s made for the iPad there are cutouts in all the right places, allowing easy access to your droid’s control mechanisms like the volume rocker, lock key and rear camera.
Of course, maybe these aren’t the droids you’re looking for. If you’re on the side of the evil empire, then you might prefer our Star Wars Stormtrooper iPad case, which also fits the second and third generation iPad and is made of the same high quality silicone. You can also get the same design as an iPhone 4 and 4S case.
For more information on each of these Star Wars cases, check out the product pages linked below. If you have any questions about any of these iPad accessories, be sure to let us know via Twitter @mobilefun or leave a comment below!

Now this is something that you don’t see everyday – a breathalyser for Apple devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod. It’s called the iPega Digital Breath Alcohol Tester and it’s a small and discrete way to monitor your blood alcohol content. The pocket-size sensor is good for parties and other social occasions where you’ll want to have a better idea of precisely how drunk you are.
The iPega is very easy to use – just connect the alcohol tester to your unlocked Apple device and press the switch to turn it on. You’ll be asked to exhale into the sensor for three to five seconds, and then the screen will tell you what your blood / alcohol content is. There are two warning levels, cautionary and dangerous, which will allow you to make more informed decisions.
However, it is worth noting that this alcohol tester has no official certification and the readings are not legally binding – you cannot present this as proof that you are not too drunk! If you are not sure, it is always better to err on the side of caution; if you have been drinking do not take to the road unless you’re in a taxi!
For more information on the iPega Digital Breath Alcohol Tester, please visit the product page below. You can also ask us questions about this or other Apple accessories on Twitter @mobilefun. Thanks for visiting the blog and be sure to have a nice and safe day.

There’s something truly awesome about the Imperial aesthetic in Star Wars, and nowhere is this typified more than the design of the Stormtrooper. In stark white and black, the Stormtrooper helmet is instantly recognisable to millions. Now, there’s an iPad case that mimics that distinctive look – the Star Wars Stormtrooper Case.
Compatible with the second and third generation iPads, the Stormtrooper case will provide style and protection in equal measure. The durable silicone construction will block scratches, absorb damage from impacts and even make your iPad easier to hold. Despite these features, the skin is still thin and light.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, then this is the iPad cover for you.

Want to hear something crazy? You can actually get a case for your third generation iPad that will boost its signal strength through an embedded antenna. With results that could improve your Wi-Fi reception by up to 10x and 3G reception by up to 3x compared to leading cases, this could make an area of low signal strength livable again.
Of course, this case isn’t just about its wireless boosting abilities. It also is an extremely solid iPad case in its own right, with a soft leather-like construction that will protect against everyday knocks and scratches. The case combines luxury with uncompromised protection, ensuring that your iPad stays safe. The case also includes easy access to the iPad 3′s ports, buttons and cameras.
The patented origami cover of the Pong is also worth mentioning. It can fold into five different configurations, allowing you to tailor it into the most convenient positions for typing, playing games, watching movies and more. Of course, the cover also makes use of the iPad’s sleep sensor to automatically lock and wake the screen.
There are two options available: Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi / 3G. Obviously if you’ve got a Wi-Fi only iPad 3, then you can save a few pounds and pick up the Wi-Fi only case. For more information and images of both of these cases, check out the product pages linked below:
Thanks for reading, and be sure to let me know what you think of the covers in the comments below! Have a good one, and I’ll catch you next time with more iPad accessories.
