"Toughest case ever built", eh? That's quite a claim — but the new Otterbox Armor Series Cases ($100) appears to back it up. Coming soon for the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, and Samsung Galaxy S III, this new line of cases is waterproof for up to 30 minutes in over 6 feet of water, drop proof up to 10 feet, dust proof, and crush proof in that they're capable of withstanding over two tons of force. Despite the beast-like protection, all ports are easily accessed via integrated covers, and the built-in screen protector allows for hassle-free use of the screen while protecting it from scratches, cracking, or worse.
Turn you iPad into a mini movieplex with the Belkin Thunderstorm Handheld Home Theater ($200). Designed to connect directly to the iPad using either the 30-pin or Lightning connector, this form-fitting accessory is powered by Audifi and features high-efficiency front-facing speakers that offer surprisingly rich sound, thanks to ported enclosures that increase bass response. You can adjust the sound using a free downloadable app, and to finish off the experience it includes a Smart Cover-like stand/cover so you don't have to hold the damn thing the whole time.
