Accessory maker Vaja has been working on a new line of cases for Apple's upcoming iPad. The new lineup will include the Retro Slim Jacket, which will feature Argentinian leather sleeve fully that covers the Apple tablet and supplies padding along with a magnetic latch. Although only one color is on display so far, it's likely Vaja will let buyers customize both the main color and the inset hue.
The Retro Slim Jacket should be about $120 and will take about 25 days of crafting to complete. Few details about the remaining lineup have been shown, but a teaser on the main Vaja page shows an upsized version of the company's iVolution flip case and confirms that it will be an option in the future.

OhGizmo has informed us that peripherals maker Novothink has released the new Solar Surge, a combination solar charger and carrying case for the iPhone 3G/3GS and the iPod Touch lets you harvest the sun’s energy to replenish your device’s less than epic battery.
According to the Novothink website, “2 hours of direct solar exposure provides about 30 minutes of talk time on a 3G network or 60 minutes of talk time on a 2G network". Users can always resort to the included USB cable for charging its built-in lithium-ion polymer battery.
One of our pals over at UNIEA — makers of cases for iPhone, etc — has just sent word of a new iPhone case they're working on. Usually the designers and higher-ups at UNIEA are pretty secretive about this stuff, — at least that's what Mike told us in his email — but in this case, not so much. The case is called the U-Diamond and it's a pretty rugged looking silicone case with a nifty diamond pattern on the back. When it's released in Q1 2010, it'll be available in several colors.
Aside from it looking nice, there's not much else to say right now. Just check out the photo of the case below!
An idea that may be as popular as the silkscreen shirt itself, Griffin and Threadless have announced that they have partnered up to offer Griffin cases with Threadless designs on them. The first two cases to come out of the partnership, "Birds of a Feather" and "Clouds Within The Thunder" are available for a limited time now through Griffin's site at $34.99 a piece. The shirts can also be found on the Threadless site.
More cases and accessories are planned for the future, so keep your eyes peeled. A video about the partnership and the two new designs follows after the break!
IvySkin has announced its first case with an integrated battery pack for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. The SmartCase features an integrated battery which they claim provides 200% more battery life and a protective case. The case is made of a polycarbonate hard shell, coated in a polysilicon material and a glass "touch-thru" screen. If you don't need the extra juice, the battery can be removed from the case and replaced with a slim backing, slimming it down for extra pocketability.
The IvySkin SmartCase will cost $79.99 when it's available later this year.
Incase has informed iLounge that current models of the Incase Power Slider have been discontinued and are no longer available from their site. Although third party retailers may still have them, Incase is planning to release a new version of the Power Slider. Current models have reportedly been known to decrease 3G reception for some users. Incase plans to address the issue with the new version. A specific release date is unknown, but it will be “around the holiday timeframe.” The Power Slider is a combination case and battery based off the design of the Incase Slider.
Eatsy has a new selection of hand-carved wooden cases from Substrata for the iPhone 3G. While it doesn't quite offer the same level of protection as a traditional case, it's darn pretty and fits the contours of the device perfectly (so we hear; we haven't gotten our hands on it yet). They come in a selection of beautiful woods, including zebrawood (pictured), macacuba wood, and wenge, and are finished with a coat of linseed oil. You can get them at the links above for $84.99.

The iPhone's brilliant screen makes it fun to look at and watch, but for those of us without eyesight, the iPhone's apps can still offer it functionality not found in most mobiles. But how do you navigate a phone with no buttons if you can't see? Simple. Make buttons. That's exactly what the Invisual case from Critica does.
Even most vegetarians I know agree that there are few things that can't be improved by wrapping them in bacon, but what about your iPhone? Now you don't have to get your phone all greasy to find out. A new case from Germany is made to look like your iDevice is wrapped in a slice of delicious bacon. Pictures after the break.
