Well it’s no surprise that so far CES has already had more than its fair share of tablet announcements and reveals, not to mention a seemingly never-ending supply of accessories for the existing players on the market, like the iPad. So you might be thinking to yourself, another iPad folio OhGizmo!? Borrrring! But you know that’s not how we roll here on the OG.

When I happened upon the iDM70 at iHome’s booth today I noticed there was something different about this folio case, and that would be a built-in set of rechargeable stereo speakers. But since it uses those super-flat NXT panel speakers, the ‘Sound Sleeve’ really doesn’t look or feel any thicker than the other folio cases already on the market. A lithium-ion battery, which can be recharged via a built-in USB cable, provides the power, and the speakers connect to your iPad via its headphone jack, so volume is managed with the iPad’s standard controls. The case can also be reconfigured into one of six different positions depending on how you want to use it, but that feature is probably a given at this point.
