Sprint iPad Case — 4G in Style


Sprint (s s) has been quick to push the use of its Overdrive modem with the iPad (s aapl). The combination allows the Wi-Fi model of the iPad to be used on the Sprint 4G (WiMAX) network where available. To promote this usage case, Sprint has been giving a case away that is tailored to fit the iPad and the Overdrive modem. I received a case to review today, and it’s a decent solution for carrying both gadgets around town.

The case is solidly constructed and fits the iPad and Overdrive exactly. The fit is so tight that the iPad will only fit in the case by itself — even the thin Apple Case is too bulky to use with the Sprint case. The Sprint 4G Case is as thin and light as can be, and it’s free from Sprint when you buy an Overdrive at participating Best Buy (s bby) stores.


iPad Case

The case looks very nice but the real question is if he really can protect thw iPad and what is the expecting demage to the device after broken or just simple fall.


I picked up an Overdrive and Sprint case last Friday at a Houston Best Buy but the case I received isn’t the same design. My case also has the sprint logo tab on the side but the top is zippered without a flap and the overdrive pocket is held closed with velcro.


The only issue I can see is that it places a hard plastic box in the middle of the screen. Any force on the Overdrive will be directed to the middle of the glass screen… Is there some form of plate to prevent screen damage?


Am I the only one who can’t scroll through the pictures on these posts lately? On Mac OSX 10.6.3, Firefox 3.6.3


I had the problem a few weeks ago with Vista & IE8, then used compatatibility mode and it worked. However, this week I can’t scroll through picts again either.


SO bummed!!! I bought my Overdrive last month and I am not in a 4G market so no case for me! Hoping one shows up on eBay, Sprint should really be selling these I want one bad!
