Melbourne, Australia. March 2, 2011
Cygnett, Australia's premier designer of innovative and stylish digital accessories, today announces its line-up of iPad 2 cases.

Within minutes of Apple launching its second-generation iPad, Cygnett unveiled its complementary range of cases, including the latest version of the company's best-selling fashion case, the Glam; the super-tough Armour protective shell and the Windsor, an elegant leather folio and the super-soft Lavish Earth.

"iPad 2 brings a host of new and fantastic features, including a front-facing camera to an already impressive device,'' says Sophie Swann, Cygnett's Marketing Director. "Our new cases have been designed to further enhance the user's experience."

All iPad 2 products, including Cygnett's OpticClear screen protectors, are available at the time of launch in Australia.
