WaterField serves up Magic Trackpad cases: because your old sock just won't cut it

Look, we get it -- it'd be fairly easy to slice up the surface of a Magic Trackpad if thrown haphazardly into a bag full of apartment keys, ink pens and syringes, but aren't there more economical ways of protecting your investments than this? Not that we blame WaterField Designs -- who happens to make some of the best cases and sleeves in the industry -- but the Trackpad Slip and the Trackpad Socket are most certainly tailor made for a slaying on "Really? with Seth and Amy." For those who can't find a free padded compartment in their existing briefcase or laptop tote, the Socket is a dead-simple padded pouch, while the Slip is a slim ballistic nylon case with a soft, lightly padded liner and a half dozen trim options. Shipments start today, with pricing set for $12 / $25, respectively. Don't count on getting any support from fellow tree huggers should you skip over your monthly Sierra Club donation in order to get one, though.

San Francisco, CA, August 3, 2010-WaterField Designs announces two new protective cases for Apple's ultra-thin, Magic Trackpad. Mobile professionals may now carry their Trackpad in the minimalist Trackpad Slip case that safeguards the device with ballistic nylon and light padding; or in the Trackpad Socket, a soft, padded pouch.

The Trackpad Socket, a simple, padded, custom-fitting pouch provides scratch-free Magic Trackpad protection from other bag contents. Available in black.

The Apple Magic Trackpad slips easily into the custom-fitted, snug case where it stays securely in place. Six trim choices allow users to add a splash of color and/or to coordinate their case with other WaterField Designs gear.

"The Trackpad, like other gadgets, needs protection while in transit so that it does not get scratched or broken," explained, Gary Waterfield, "Our cases prevent the occasional ding, scratch or spill you get when you put it in a backpack or purse along with other gear."
