Logitech Hinge case for iPad Air blends right into the carpet



Logitech’s new Hinge is an iPad case with – what do you think? Yup, a hinge. To be honest, it’s really no different from all the other cases that have a vertical crease in the back so that the front flap can fold away and around to make a multi-angle stand, but the Hinge looks better than most of them while it does it.

The 335-gram (0.9-pound) case is a whopper in terms of weight, but it does offer protection as well as being a good-looking stand. The iPad tray within is polycarbonate, the outside cover, which looks kinda like the material used on office chairs so you don’t see the office-party stains, is gray polyester, and the cover part itself is made from polyurethane.

And that’s about it. If you’re looking for a convenient, fairly slim and very nice-looking iPad Air case, and don’t care too much about the weight, then the Hinge might be for you. $60.

    Tried to post a question on the Logitech blog but they didn’t post it. All of their photos of the Hinge show someone looking at the display. I asked if the Hinge would allow you to type on those angles without having the iPad slip. You know – pretty basic stuff – can you touch the touch display.

      Just from past experience, I’m gonna say no. It looks like gravity and a slight amount of friction are holding it in place. I had one like this and it was fine for setting on a table, but collapsed on a bed, couch or at the lightest interaction.

      I recommend looking into cases with troughs or dips the ipad sits in, and also ones that support typing modes if thats what your looking at. I ended up going with a Devicewear Ridge case which has both of those and it works great.

      Not sure if they allow links, but here is one if it is: http://www.amazon.com/Devicewear-Ridge-Position-Cover-Magnetic/dp/B00G4EBO24/

    What the special feature of Hinge is that thanks to the unique Hinge design to make it firmly stand and only move when you want to.
