Tablets and e-readers need protection too and Built’s Neoprene E-Reader/Tablet Envelope 7-8″ is an excellent protective snug-fit envelope for devices such as the range of 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab and Tab 2 tablets, the Amazon Kindle Fire e-reader, and the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. The envelope has a plush inner lining, which will keep dust at bay and protect the screen from scratches, and an outer zip pocket for accessories and oddities such as earphones, a stylus, a few small USB storage devices, or a charging cable if it has detachable pins and can be stored flat. The envelope, which closes over the zip pocket with Velcro, is made of thick neoprene, which protects against scratches and light bumps and is also water resistant so your tablet or e-reader will be safe from accidental spills on your desk. The stitching is of high quality and will withstand being stretched, as well as general wear and tear. The sleeve is available in black with a dark charcoal interior as well as a selection of designer patterns – for the more adventurous – that are paired with bright interior colours. The recommended retail price of the Built Neoprene E-Reader/Tablet Envelope 7-8″ is R279. It is available via these stockists (notably Look And Listen and Exclusive Books at OR Tambo International).
