SALT LAKE CITY — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 3, 2011 — ZAGG Inc. (NASDAQ: ZAGG) ( www.ZAGG.com), announced availability of a complete line of accessories, including their popular and award-winning invisibleSHIELD® and ZAGGskins™, for the new Apple iPad 2. Scheduled for release on March 11, the iPad 2 is the follow-up to Apple’s revolutionary tablet computer. The invisibleSHIELD and ZAGGskins are available for pre-order online now at ZAGG.com, and will begin shipping to online customers and select retailers prior to the device launch.
Other accessories now available for the Apple iPad 2 include the ZAGGsmartbuds, ZAGGsparq, and ZAGG branded cleaning products. ZAGG will also release a new version of their Macworld Best of Show award-winning ZAGGmate™ for the new iPad 2. The ZAGGmate for the Apple iPad 2 will begin shipping to online customers and select retailers later this month.
“Apple consistently brings revolutionary technology to the market, and ZAGG’s accessories are ideal for protecting and personalizing these vulnerable and remarkable gadgets,” said Derek Smith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ZAGG. “The invisibleSHIELD and ZAGGskins provide scratch, smudge and fingerprint protection and personalization for the iPad 2 without adding bulk.”
Along with the iPad 2, Apple introduced Smart Covers during their announcement press conference, a magnetic cover for the screen of the iPad. ZAGG’s invisibleSHIELD protects the screen when it is in use, and keeps harmful particles from getting between the Smart Cover and the iPad 2 screen. The invisibleSHIELD is both complimentary to, and compatible with, the Smart Cover.
The invisibleSHIELD is ZAGG's patented, virtually invisible and indestructible film protection system, available in over 5,000 designs for the most popular electronics. The invisibleSHIELD line of premium films prevents smudges and fingerprints, includes a lifetime replacement warranty, and protects millions of devices around the world from bumps, scratches, and dings. ZAGGskins are customized high-quality images and designs fused with the invisibleSHIELD to provide personalized protection. Customers can choose from hundreds of professional designs or create their own design at ZAGGskins.com.
In addition to an innovative stand and full device protection, the ZAGGmate for the iPad 2 includes a wireless keyboard, and is the only accessory that allows both portrait and landscape viewing for the iPad 2. The ZAGGmate retails for $99.99.
“We have billed the ZAGGmate as a perfect companion for the iPad, and our customer response validates this claim,” added Smith. “The ZAGGmate for the iPad 2 will be just as complementary to the new device. It will provide drop protection, versatile display positioning, and a valuable keyboard for this slim, powerful new tablet.”
