Pop!, $39.99: Offering a support system like no other, the PlayBook Pop! case brings a new standard to the power of two.

The Venture protects the PlayBook while on the go and doubles as a secure stand whenever and wherever it's needed. The stylish cover snaps closed to keep the screen scratch-free. Unsnap the cover, flip it over, and the Venture case works as a stable stand, ready to take notes or show your presentation at a moment's notice. Available in black/grey.

Barely There, $34.99: One of Case-Mate's best-selling cases, the Barely There combines style with function for the ultimate slim case.
