"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.
Protect the back of your precious iPhone while giving it a bit of vintage flair with one of these Fire Hose iPhone Covers ($20-$40). Made from salvaged cotton & nylon blend fire hoses, they measure 2mm thick, adhere to your phone with a high-quality 3M adhesive that allows them to be removed with no damage to the device, are available in white, red, or yellow, with or without text and stripes on them, and in sizes that precisely fit the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5. A nice alternative to the common case.
