Due to the sheer volume of case options out there for smartphones, iPads and e-readers, we had to break up our favorite picks into a series of posts! As previously mentioned, gadget accessories tend to reflect the owner’s personal style. For the outdoorsy people, they’re going to need something that can handle the rough and tumble of their travels. For the Hipsters and Geeks, they’re going to want something that’s cool and unique. For every type of person out there, there’s an appropriate case to suit their personality and taste. And we attempted to track down them all.
