The era of mobility is upon users, and technology is spawning more and more devices that keep people connected, working and entertained while on the move.
An example is the current tablet PC boom that is taking the world by storm. One such brand that is making its mark is the Apple iPad. Before users got used to the iPad 1, the iPad 2 had been launched, and users are expecting the next iteration in April 2012.
For these enthusiasts, there is nothing more frustrating than having to contend with scratches on their iPad. Many users have realised the necessity of protecting this asset, used for e-mailing, watching movies and browsing the Internet. Users are overwhelmed with the choice of accessories, skins, sleeves, cases, covers and brands best suited for their iPad.
“The Targus range of products offer protection for ease, as we see many people identify their iPad as an investment and an everyday tool,” says Heinrich Pretorius, Targus product specialist at distributors Drive Control Corporation (DCC).
“Protecting your iPad is vital as it gives your iPad a longer lifespan, so whether you purchase a case, sleeve or slipcase, the Targus range will suit your lifestyle. The skin is so unobtrusive, that you could even slip it into your laptop case for added protection.”
The Targus brand is synonymous with simple and stylish, yet functional products. DCC stocks a range of products specifically designed for the Apple iPad. These include the Targus Vuscape Protective Cover and Stand, Targus Z-Case, Targus Screen Protector and finally the Targus A7 Sleeve.
The Targus Vuscape Protective Cover and Stand is an ultra-thin and lightweight case with the added benefit of multi-viewing. This allows users to view the iPad at three angles, with the lowest angle giving users the ideal space to type.
The Vuscape is designed in the similar mould of a portfolio case, which makes portability a breeze. The exterior of the case is a hard shell providing sturdy protection, while the interior is made from soft suede, protecting the iPad from scratches. The Vuscape simply flips open and props up, so it allows instant access to the iPad – always ready and operational.
The Targus Z-case is made with one thought in mind: simplicity. The Z-case is easy to use, with an exterior similar to that of the Vuscape made from a hard shell for protection.
It also features a plush scratch resistant interior to protect the iPad screen from nicks and scratches. A secure magnetic strip is used to open and close the Z-case. Simply open the two-phased cover and zoom onto the Web, knowing that the iPad is protected.
The Targus Screen Protector not only protects iPads from scratches, but also reduces the amount of fingerprints or smudges that appear on the screen. This clear plastic layer was designed with a specifically formulated adhesive, which leaves no residue and takes nothing away from the iPad.
It simply offers better visibility of the screen. No solution is required to apply the screen protector, leaving the screen free of bubbles when placing the protection on the iPad.
The Targus A7 Sleeve is the quirky yet serious design of the Targus range. The A7 protects an iPad not only from scratches and dust, but is also weather resistant, come rain or snow. The A7 is made from state of the art material, using a tri-cell cushion system; the exterior is made from neoprene which offers durability, while the interior is heavily padded offering shock resistance and is quilted, providing ventilation.
“Targus develops products that are reputable globally, whereby quality and warranty are CSD Targus Distribution’s priority. Fulfilling the end users’ requirement and product satisfaction in getting their money’s worth is key for us, for it has become a business necessity tool, rather than a nice to have and the range for iPads is no different,” says Magdalena Britz, national sales and development manager at CSD Targus Distribution.
“The product is developed to ensure maximum protection and enhances the user experience. Although the products are unique and feature a variety of designs, they offer one distinct feature and that is to ensure that your iPad is protected at all times.”
