The high demand for the handheld touchscreen tablets has spurred the growing list of tantalizing tablet pouches available as an accessory.

You cannot let your sleek personal device go without a protective companion. Tech designers are making countless variations of the iPad sleeve to add both a personal flair and functional purpose. The types of pouches out there include those that are conservative -- ones of simple design, luxury material (like bamboo or leather) and pretty patterns, and those that are fun -- ones that have moustaches on them, are shaped like game-boys and pandas. The final category sees the production of iPad cases that are high-tech in design, featuring magnetic clip-on covers or ergonomic grapplers.
